      "If I had money to start a business I would create an Etsy shop with professionally designed day planners and other materials to help people remain organized. I am a huge fan of organization and stationary, so those two interests combined would be fun."

       for a Marketing interview

      "If I were given 50,000 dollars to start a business I would look into starting a content writing agency where I could hire freelancers to work for a variety of clients. It would be a solid business that would still allow me to work as a marketing director full time."
