On to stocks and crypto

Today i finished my assignment in entrepreneurship and i am very surprised that was able to think of an idea and I’ve come to realize that there is a lot that goes into creating a business idea and the steps that you need to take are very long and plenty for your ideas to come to life. I am now moving on to the stocks and crypto assignment and watched the intro video and moved into the trading stocks sub assignment.

My business idea for my assignment

Today I have thought of what I want my product to be. I want to do a virtual assistant kind of like Amazon Alexa, but made for an app that allows buy and selling of products that the assistant can do for you if you’re busy rather than having you look. Meaning the assistant can make purchases and sell your items for you whenever you want. I will now start making the proper adjustments for price and research for this to be applicable to society.

Time management overview

Today instead of working on the finances quiz all day which I’ve been stuck on, i went to to time management and did a review on the whole section to retake the quiz and passed. It was good to review though as there were some things that i didn't understand properly the first time.

Past reviews

Today I wasn’t able to do much due to complications but I still made sure to continue to review for the quizzes I failed and I feel as if I’m missing something or it didn’t catch my eye because I am still kind of confused with the quiz questions and how they’re wrong. But if this persists I’ll likely ask for assistance.

Slow start to a new week

Today was very slow as i was fixing complications with the linking of my social media information as it wasn't copying the link properly and ended up having to troubleshoot with a few google searches online to get the right URL. After that i continued working on the failed quizzes though i am having a little of a hard time and i might be missing some information that im not quite getting yet and will continue onto the next quiz for now to stay productive.

Improving my life

Today has really been an eye opener for me. I realize i spend most of my time wasting it rather than actually spending that time as i take it for granted. after completing my assignment for the second prerequisite im going to take the time to make sure i review all of what I’ve learned instead of treating it as class work and make sure that i am really reflecting on the time i spend in this program and also make sure all my quizzes are passed so I can move on and pick an assignment of my interest after i complete the introduction to entrepreneurship. I want to make more proper use of my time and actually show it rather than just saying it to my friends and family and grow from this experience.
