Starting my own company was the best but hardest thing I have ever done on my own.

I had worked for a photo booth rental company in Maryland for nearly a year before transferring schools from UMBC to UNCW. It was the best job I have ever had. I was getting paid to go to parties, hang out, eat, socialize, and have fun with the guests and I was making more than enough money from only working once or twice a week. Can you imagine anything better? I couldn’t. I loved my job, it was something I was passionate about and looked forward to doing.  I wanted to do the exact same thing while I was at UNCW. So, I started my own photo booth rental company, Photo Perfect Photobooth LLC.

Going to London with CSB was one of best experiences of my life. I didn’t think I’d get to go because my double major requires me to have so many credit hours. The London trip was perfect timing for me! From June 26th - July 28th I could travel around Europe on the weekends while I learned Business Law and Global Studies (International Business) during the week.

I’ll start by saying that starting a business isn’t easy. I’ve practically lived off coffee and Redbull for the past three months. It’s literally building something from the ground up. But when it’s finished, and people are enjoying what you’ve created, it’s an awesome feeling.

While capitalism is still favored by the majority of Americans, a January 2016 poll suggested socialism’s popularity is on the rise.

As reported in The Washington Post, a poll asking respondents whether they had a favorable or unfavorable view of socialism and capitalism found capitalism to be the big winner overall. But respondents under 30 years of age decisively embraced socialism.

It is harder to change as you advance in your profession, but as Jack Welch famously said, you need to “change before you have to.”
