    I have an assignment for my business class that requires me to ask a business owner some interview questions. The problem is I can't get a hold of any of the business owners that I know for questioning. I would like some help. If you are a business owner I have a few general questions for you that would help me out greatly. They are not personal or incriminating questions just general ones. I will list them below and if you don't mind answering them please email them to me at tyhollin at yaho. The only reason I ask that you email them to me is because my school references the internet for plagiarism and posting it on a public forum may cause my similarity score to be high.


    Business profile. Interview the business owner, and ask the following questions:
    What size is your business? How many employees are there? (If possible, the owner may share revenue base.)
    How long did it take you to make a profit?
    Why did you decide to go into business for yourself? How many years have you been in business?
    What is the main product or service that you sell?
    Who was your first client?
    Who are your customers?
    You may ask other questions you want to ask related to the business profile.

    Owner profile. Now, interview the business owner to find out more about his or her personality. Ask questions that will help you develop a personal profile about him or her. The following are a few questions to consider beginning with:
    Do you enjoy working for yourself? Why?
    What are 2 advantages of owning your own business?
    What are 2 disadvantages of owning your own business?
    How did you prepare for your business? Did you receive specific training or a degree?
    How do you stay current with innovations and technologies in your industry and for your business?


    Any help is so appreciated. Thank you
