About my venture

TBD

I've always wanted to own my own small business but have had challenges thinking of an idea for a small business. I've been exploring ideas and making lists when ideas come to mind. I've recently thought about owning a party product and supplies rental company. The idea was sparked when I talked to a friend of mine who is getting married and exclaimed how she was having a hard time finding vendors. I thought 2022 would be an excellent opportunity to venture into a party product, equipment, and supplies rental business because COVID-19 has restricted people from gathering and celebrating over the last three years. However, I don't know if this business idea would be sustainable long term.

Currently, I am pursuing an MBA with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and Global Business at CSUS. I plan to graduate in Fall 2023. I have the education and know that I would provide excellent service because most of my experience is in customer service. I don't know where to start to perform market research, marketing, and establish a legitimate business.

Although I don't have experience in starting a business and know how challenging it can be to own a small business, I have the passion, determination, and ambition to succeed. I am a first-generation college graduate and know that I will grow if I get the opportunity to have a little guidance. I am taking advantage of all that the College of Business at CSUS offers, including the Carlsen Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (where I was introduced to this platform).
