Business for busy people

People who do history degrees in my experience very rarely get to scale the heights of industry and make a lot of money. I am one of those unfortunates who decided to do what she enjoyed when she went to university rather than doing something that would later pay the bills. Oh the decisions made by youth! Well there are no excuses as at Christchurch City Libraries we cover the full range of information needs online 24/7. This includes access to multiple Business and Management eResources which have full-text coverage of all business disciplines including accounting, economics, finance, marketing, management and strategy, as well as business theory and practice.

One of the new business eResources is called Gale Business Collection which combines the old databases of General Business File ASAP and Business and Company ASAP into a single flash new platform. It is even mobile friendly so you can search it with ease on your phone.

I guess at this point with such resources at my fingertips there is no real excuse not to go back and learn some new skills and build an empire. It is just when I get home from work I tend to collapse into myself and can barely keep my eyes open long enough to make dinner let alone take on the business world. Oh wasted youth!

      Ha, I remember that! He reckoned BA grads learned critical thinking and that was a transferable skill. I wonder if other business people have followed his lead …
