I was not planning on attending college because my husband and I are both self-employed, but when I realized that work for the courses would help me solidify our businesses and organize them in a more standard way, it was an easy decision. Business management and administration are areas that have developed so much and become very scientific. It has really helped me to focus on making our business better and using my time wisely. I will also be able to use this knowledge to increase my credibility in business.
