Personal Statement For A Business Essay

Before I dive into the topic of this post, I’d like to give you a little more background on myself and my journey thus far. As I noted in the last post, my first “business” was a pressure washing service. After the jobs dried up 4-5 months into it I regrouped and refocused. I started working as a contract employee at a local hobby shop, buying and selling collectable trading cards while managing the shops collection. This was a wonderful opportunity for me, as the shop’s owner took on an informal position as a mentor. A short while after I started this endeavor I diversified in the field by building my personal collection, focusing on very specific card types and eventually starting a exploratory business building complete sets and selling them on ebay. While both of these ventures allowed me to learn a great deal about the habits and patterns necessary to promote business growth, they were both incredibly informal and relatively small scale. I’m currently purchasing pallets of overstock and store returns and re-selling the items with my father, however this business niche has become a bit flooded. Consequently, I’m currently working on what direction I plan on heading over the next couple years. I’ve got a product prototype I 'd like to produce and promote, however this will require a substantial amount of start-up capital. At the moment, I’m unsure if I should be devoting my time and energy into building the reselling business so I can milk it for all it’s worth
