Process Analysis Devonta Thompson COMM150: Research and Writing Ms.Butler December 20, 2012 When I first started my classes initial thoughts on my career choice was that my career path was the right one for me. The reason being is that I realized at a young age that I would work better if I worked for myself; so I started up my own photography company. The decision to own my own business was as clear as black and white, what I mean by that is that I had no doubts that I would work better telling others what to do verse someone else telling me what to do. Plus my career path fits my personality; simply because I love women I work with them all day; I enjoy running my mouth and all do is run my mouth either to close a deal or convince…show more content…
