You can go to business school to learn about how to run a business, but after business school where do you start ! this is a questions millions of new entrepreneur ask themselves when entering a new industry.  Don’t panic we are here to help you. 


Investing: Start saving money so once you are done with college you will be able to use that money to build your small company from scratch. I encourage students to use their time wisely and to get a part time job on the side that works with their college schedule that way they can either save their money, enjoy it wisely, or save and invest it, if they are planning on going freelance !
