Want free career or academic advice
from a professional?

To open an online business do I have to have an business degree, or stick to the entrepreneurship degree to obtain the skills needed to open a web site store, blogs, or even video sales representations?

So should I gain more knowledge in my computer skills or blogs, learn how counselors utilize their skills to assist and advise people and answer questions while being paid for these services. Do I need web training, or just pay for your web design, like go daddy or some other web designers? How do people get paid for their web services?

You don't need a degree. You need an idea.

Finally the term entrepeneur is often over-used or misunderstood. An entrepeneur is an individual who drives his ideas to reality. They run businesses, they create value and wealth, and they are comfortable running an organization.
