My classes at Regis began this week, at the same time that I set in motion my departure from Lulu and wound up the assignment I’ve been guiding my students through.
The class, so far: meh. I don’t have a business background and, indeed, never took any such courses in college, even despite two degrees and graduate school. Which means that, though I’m currently attending Regis, I’m really doing a conditional acceptance sort of thing. I have to pass a couple of Foundations of Business or somesuchlike courses.
Which would be fine. I get that I need to know stuff like statistics. And I can’t wait to get to marketing.
(you knew there was going to be a but, right? Which gives me an opportunity to try out this “more” function thingy I’ve been wanting to use)
This first week has concentrated on Excel spreadsheets. One I’m supposed to create using supplied parameters, which is kinda cool, but no less than four others I’m supposed to “duplicate” off a worksheet. Not to mention, I then have to do some other weirdo thing that makes the spreadsheets display the formulas I did.
So: showing your work.
But yeesh. I’m 30 years old. Is this really frickin’ necessary? I just wrote a business plan last semester.
(funny how life segues sometimes)
I did most of the spreadsheets already. Now for the other.
I might be (re)posting work from Entrekin this next week, as part of the whole September 11th pledge drive thing. I know some of you have already both read and bought it, but I’m pretty certain, too, that many other people besides haven’t.
But this’ll be a bit of a ‘greatest hits’ sort of week.
So, the question is: what’s your favorite story in Entrekin, and why? Any questions you’re burnin’ to ask after reading them? Or otherwise, for that matter?
