Business affects everyone.

Studying Business Is A Great Idea And Will Do Big Things In Your Life

To many people, the business school is the last place they would ever go; however, I am telling you to go there and to take a class or two.

Many schools emphasize that a good liberal arts foundation is essential to any good secondary education experience, and I couldn't agree more; however, a business class or personal finance class should be a part of that core curriculum.

Everyone works in a business. Whether it is legally a business or not is a different story, but the basics are the same: everyone requires the raising of capital to achieve institutional goals. It doesn't matter if you're working in high finance, work as a professor, work as a doctor, work as an engineer, are raising a family, working in full-time ministry, you will be required to raise capital to achieve goals. This is what business teaches you.

I recognize that people are passionate about different things, and everyone tells you to study what you love. Some people love to read and write; some love to get paid to post on social media. Some people love medicine; some people love politics and policy. Some people love to design complex and innovative structures. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Other people love to study commerce and economics.

I am one of those people, and I can guarantee you that I love taking a liberal arts class about as much as y'all like accounting or economics. I always tell people that they should always take either an economics class and/or an accounting class because, at the end of the day, everyone has to raise capital and get buy-in, whether it is in your job description or not.

Us business majors have to take a bunch of y'all's classes to graduate and be "well rounded," and I don't think that you would regret giving us the same courtesy.

Business is a great field of study.

Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
