During the process of selecting a topic, some of the topics that stuck out to me the most were the “What If I Was From Here” case study and the Economic Case Study.

 “What If I Was From Here” case study stood out to me is because you really get the feel of being a local and a different perspective of the village. I feel that I’ll have fun with this topic because it’s not just one topic but it’s all of them bundled together to some extent. I can really make this topic personal depending on my experiences.

During my research, I needed to use a lot of keywords in order to find the information I needed.

The main point I hope to share with my audience is what kinds of aspects are involved in a small business. What you need to do in order to run one, the economics, the story behind the business, the business itself and it's economics. I want show what is behind the curtains, behind the scenes of a small business. Not just the fact that they take your money and put it in a money box but what happens with that money, where does it go? I want them to fully understand what is needed in order to run a successful small business.
