Hello, Commonwealth Honors College, UMass Community, and everyone else in the world!
I, Anastasia, am one of the new bloggers for HonorsInSight and I am really excited to be sharing some of my thoughts with you this semester!
First, let me tell you a little bit about myself: I am a Management major with a focus on Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management at Isenberg and a member of the Commonwealth Honors College. I was born and raised in Germany and moved to the U.S. about five years ago. As a transfer student, I am now in my second semester here at UMass and feel very strongly that my choice of university was a great start into my professional future.
One of my biggest goals is to start my own business, so I would like to use this opportunity to try to answer some of my personal questions regarding entrepreneurship and to find a path towards *that* idea, which will change it all. My posts will surround entrepreneurship, as well as leadership, and innovation trends. I will always appreciate any feedback and you’re more than welcome to chat with me about any of your questions, ideas or experiences. I hope that throughout my blog posts I will be able to offer a refreshing perspective of the business world, contribute to our wonderful community, and maybe inspire some of you to further explore your interests in starting your own business.
Lastly, since I am fluent in German as well as English, I will also share one German business word per week, which relates to the blog topic I am discussing. Since my posts will focus on Entrepreneurship, let me teach you that word first: You can either translate it professionally as "Unternehmertum" or more casually as "Selbstständigkeit."
Well, I hope you are all off to a great start this semester and I wish you a productive rest of the week!
Until next time,
