For the last 5 weeks in Cal Careers, we have been doing a simulation with the stock market. The amount of money we started with was $5,000. We observed different companies’ stocks and decided which stocks we wanted to buy. After buying stocks from 6 different companies, we recorded the amount of money they made us that week. As the weeks passed, we had to decide whether or not we wanted to keep our stocks or sell them. By the end of the simulation, we either made money or lost money.

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted a career in business. My father owns his own business and some of my earliest memories include being told to sit quietly with my brother as my father met with customers and companies. It fascinated me how everyday was different for him, and that he saw and dealt with an ever-changing group of people. Early on, this fascination with the flexibility of his job made me want the same in my life, and that desire never really went away. When teachers, peers and random adults like my dentist asked me what I wanted to do when I was older, I always knew I wanted to own my own business. With this career goal in mind, I entered senior high school already searching for the perfect university to attend.

I realized how important investing and financial planning are for a meaningful future, and it determined me to
It really helped my family and I find unresolved conflicts within our salon. As a business major myself it was exciting to do something hands on. It opened my eyes into part of what you have to do with a business major. Not only that, but it also helps one understand how to budget and how much work and money that is put into owning a business. I’m pretty sure that some of my classmates were able to see an example of real life people on how they manage they make their business keep running. For us to go in there, helped these business owners into realizing what changes they could make by the numbers we got. As for me, I did enjoy this and I do hope to keep working more with my family to benefit our
