As a business owner of a craft business I wanted to pursue something that always interested me and in the process of finding those materials and researching what was needed I discovered a love of learning how to make a business better and how to make it profitable. I also learned the research that went into it. As a babysitter, I learned how to deal with difficult situations and to report to the employer when there was a situation that needed their immediate attention, while also learning how to calm situations down when possible. I learned how to focus in intense and possibly high risk situations. As a designer, I learned how to take criticism even when unsure if that fit with my vision and ideals. I also learned how to take the ideas of several people and come up with a solution that benefitted the project. I learned what people were interested in and how to work with what was popular and most importantly what could have the most lasting power when necessary.
