One guy in my class had a basic t-shirt business, yet his questions were complex accounting questions that you needed an accounting degree just to understand what he was saying. It gave me insight into what CEOs were thinking when they ran their own businesses. It’s a lot. However, my teacher was wonderful and patient. And she let us out early. Bam!
