    • Hi Sudheesh,

      Starting your own business is a good decision. It is also good to note that you can identify your areas of interest. Meanwhile, I want to advise that you don’t need to wait till the time you’ve graduated before you start working on your business ideas. You can use this period to conduct both primary and secondary researches about your business ideas. This will enable to decide whether the ideas are worthwhile. School is also a good place to network and also acquire some skills which can help you in the future. Your friends and colleagues may be your first customers when you eventually start your business.
