Possible career choices include: manager, management trainer, stockbroker, lawyer, chemical engineer, police officer (Pearson, Prentice Hall 2007).
I know that getting my MBA will become a very useful tool in learning how to build and manage a successful business.

I am learning new and creative ways to market the business. It can be challenging but I am up for the challenge. I also know that it will take time for the small business to grow.
