My entire life I have dreamed of becoming a business owner. I have always wanted to show up in a nice car, with my briefcase, wearing a suit, and go up to my huge office suite.  This is why I chose entrepreneurship. This is a new major as of this year at Western Michigan University, and a major that is on the up rise. Entrepreneurial thinking is the ability to recognize opportunities and to capitalize on those. It is important to have the ability to recognize and evaluate opportunities as they come to you. This is why I find this to be extremely interesting. You always have to be on your toes and ready to take risks, whether you risk $1000 or your entire company, that’s what makes entrepreneurs who they are and the successful ones successful. Entrepreneurs are upon the most successful people around the world. You just need to be able to take the risks.

Finance is another major that is greatly looked up upon. A successful career in finance calls for a unique set of skills. It takes being outgoing and inquisitive naturally. You need math skills, goals, good decision skills, and have great resources. All of these are necessary to make a good finance major. Job prospects for finance have predicted to grow faster than average in the next 10 years. You can get jobs in a large span from broker, investment banking, insurance, advisor, and stocks even. This is a major that will take you far in life with the right set of skills, and mind set.
