Before I started this module I liked to think that I enjoyed business and would one day like to run my own company. Now that I have finished the module, I still have he same passion and I am possibly even more excited about my future business ventures, however, it has opened my eyes, and somewhat shocked me, as to how much time and effort needs to go into setting up a business.
I found the lectures very helpful and informative. There was a vast amount of information to take in, however it was delivered in an easy-to-understand way, which made me feel more capable and not out of my depth.
The tasks I was asked to do helped greatly at solidifying the information we were given in the lectures. It enabled me to apply my own aspirations and to further understand what it is exactly what I want to do in my future. Never the less I still haven't thought of exactly what I wish to do in the future, but I feel a lot more secure in the fact that I know what's out there and I know how to handle my self better in the business world to reach out and do what I want to do.
I fund it very enjoyable and a positive experience being able to set up a virtual business. It helped to apply the knowledge we had gained in the lectures and set tasks and apply them to the 'real word'. I found the financial side of it very interesting, however I have to admit, I did find it very hard to get my head around all the final calculations so my other business partners aided in that aspect of the company greatly.
I have enjoyed learning about what makes businesses work and I now feel overall more capable in the enterprising world. If I were to do this module again I would definitely stick the with same design partnership as we worked very well together, however, I would perhaps try and get to grips more with the money side of things and persevere with trying to understand better. Overall it has been a great learning experience and I will undoubtably benefit from this in the future.
