I know it is not required to own your own business but how helpful would it really be? Do people who have a degree/background in business tend to do better when they open their own business verses someone who does not have a degree/background in business? Just curious.Answer Question

My husband and I opened up our business last year and we both have BA in unrelated fields. When we went to college, we had no idea a business was in our future. We've had to teach ourself a lot of things by reading business books and reading, reading and reading some more. We also too advantage of SCORE's service and other agencies that help small business. So based on our experiences, I would say that a BS in business would be extremely helpful and you might want to take some marketing classes as well.
Also, seeing as you have an interest in small business, I'd like to invite you to join my CM business group. Many of our group members are small business owners and we're a support group not an advertising group.
