As the 16-week JRN450 class on entrepreneurship comes to a close, there is a lot to be reflected on. When I first started, I had a very vague idea on what “entrepreneurship” meant, what it entailed, and how someone could be one. I now realize a lot of my perceptions of these at the beginning… Continue reading 16 Weeks With Entrepreneurship
I used to think that if you have a great idea, you can be successful. That’s all it took. Something original that solved a problem that everyone wanted to get their hands on, something that made life easier. In theory, yes. After all, the foundation of a startup did start with identifying a problem and… Continue reading Startups, Not for Everyone
Truthfully, I wasn’t expecting to partake in an entrepreneurial adventure for the past semester, but it was interesting to delve into the state of media and learn from other startups. I really enjoyed listening to How I Built This podcasts, especially with Whitney Wolfe, founder of Bumble, and Carley Roney and David Liu, founders of… Continue reading Entrepreneurship Is Not For The Faint of Heart
As I approach graduation and look back at all the classes, I realize my media entrepreneurship course one of the most interesting and exciting courses I took.

Though I learned many things throughout this course, one thing that was the most helpful were the… Continue reading What I’ve Learned Throughout The Semester In my Media Innovation Course
When I signed up for this class, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into! And to make things more interesting this was my first class in my whole four and a half years that was on Friday! Surprisingly, I learned a lot from this class and will be taking some of the concepts… Continue reading I am Ready for the World!
As I approach graduation, looking back at the creating/marketing media class in which we focused on entrepreneurship, I realize how essential the knowledge I learned really is.

After I reflect back on this class, I realize that I read a lot of interesting articles and blog posts and heard a lot of inspiring speakers, TED talks and radio podcasts about growing a business and how certain people turned an idea into a successful company.

The truth is, I’ve learned I don’t want to be an entrepreneur. What I’ve learned I’ve come to realize that I’m not willing to devote my life to running a business.
