What I have learned In Uncle Ian’s Class This is my first term taking any business class here at LBCC. It has been a wonderful experience that has helped me in many ways. It has helped me understand and know the basics of business and how to use those skills. I have a small back ground with owning a business, but I have a lot of experience managing a business. These traits are few and far between qualities people have. But after this class I feel that I can further accomplish my goals I have set for myself in the future. The first thing I use to think of when I thought of a business was money. Money is a huge part of a business in many ways. Money gets the operation going, working, and growing. Everything in this world runs on and revolves around money. When I think of starting a business, I think of debt and how it could consume you. And it almost scares me in a way that I may fail and won’t be able to get back on my feet. Lorene (Owner of Lorene’s café in Lebanon) states “Hell, who cares how much money you have to borrow, as long as you make your business all that it can be you’re headed in the right direction”. But when being an entrepreneur those things all seem scary but most of those things could easily be overcame with the right business establishment, accounting/book keeping skills, and management in my point of view. The most important thing would be to manage your money and books in an effective and efficient way. I have learned the difference between book keeping and accounting and how different they are. Accounting is for collecting and analyzing financial information. Whereas book keeping is more of records of the business accounting transactions. It helps make sure that the accounting that is taking place is correct and accurate on every level of the business. I feel like this is one of the most important things a business can have. Making sure that all the money and paper work is in order will allow for a business to run at its maximum

    I technically “finished” high school and now I’m taking a vocational nursing class. In my practical nursing class, I’ve learned many skills and techniques, but not only to use in the clinical setting, but in my daily life. As a matter of fact, I believe I learned more about myself while in this class than I learned in my whole life. For instance, I learned that I am a huge procrastinator. This class has taught me how to prioritize and problem solve. For example, I know I have a huge test coming up…

    I have learned a lot in these last nine weeks. I now know more about computers then thought I would ever know. I learned that I need to have a password on my wireless rougher. Without a password anyone can peek into my computer and take any information they want. I also learned how a computer system works, and what's the different between data and information to a computer, and how it processes data into information. One thing I didn’t know is all the different kinds of kinds of operating systems…

    realize that I wasn’t as good of a writer that I thought I was. Throughout the semester, my papers gradually improved in grades, but also in quality. Prior to this semester, I was unaware that visualization was even a thing, and thought that showing not telling was for frivolous floosies who didn’t know how to write anything meaningful. This class has changed my perspective on the importance of imagery and creating a better experience for the reader. The first paper I wrote for this class was the Name…

    As I began this course it was the one I was dreading the most. For as long as I remember I have been told my writing is terrible. As I began this course I realized it was not that I was bad at writing, it was the fact that I did not know correct mechanics or grammar and did not take it serious enough. I have learned so many new techniques and have improved as a writer. Although I will not say I love writing, I do not hate it. Within this class my best effort was for the personal narrative. I say…

    and live from. I have learned many skills throughout this course and I am ready for 101! English 90 did not only refresh me of things I learned in high school but it has refined them. Using correct punctuation was an unclear problem I never could get a grasp on until English 90. Difficult tasks such as starting and ending my essays are a thing of the past. Now I know to brainstorm ideas and narrow them to a specific topic. Essays used to take me a plethora of hours to complete and now I know how to…

    What I Have Learned In this class I have learned so many different things about Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. Each program that we covered has its uses in a professional setting. They also have many personal uses as well. Microsoft Excel we were taught how to use excel to create budgets, and also how to take that budget and make it into a graph. This is really beneficial for me in my personal life, because I have never used a budget. Now I can’t monitor what I am spending and…

    I have always known my brother was different. From the day he was born he was hooked up on beeping machines and glow fingers, he wasn’t on them for very long but enough to make me always remember the way they sounded. I knew he had a scar on his chest, I knew he looked different from me. I always just wanted to know why. I would never know why until middle school. Middle school was when I started noticing the kids that where different. I noticed the kids that screamed down the hall, the ones who…

    college freshman I have grown a lot not only as a student, but also as a person. At first I thought of myself as a good writer, but throughout the semester I learned that I had a lot of improvements to make in my writing. Already I have made a lot of progress and will continue to improve throughout the rest of the year in core. My biggest challenge with Core was learning to think outside the box. This included challenging myself to new ideas that I never considered before. In class the topics we discussed…

    great. I can honestly say that it is one of the few classes that I have really enjoyed throughout the various courses I have taken. When I signed up for this class in the fall of last year I really didn’t know what to expect from this class I just knew that it was a class that I was required to take. There are a few reasons as to why I have enjoyed this class. I enjoyed this class because I did not have to buy a textbook or worry about a textbook in general. Not having a textbook for this class just…
