"I am learning things like how to do income statements, how to do inventories, and figuring out what will make profits and how to decide if you should make investments. When I start my own business I’ll need all of these skills. My teachers are so nice and helpful and reply to my emails right away. I can manage my busy life with the kids and work and school."
