Ever since I was young, I have been keen to understand andstudy in the way businesses operate: how organisations are managed, how theymake maximum profits whilst selling themselves to the customer, asking myselfwhy cars are so differently valued at different price points. Few years ago,after visiting my father’s takeaway my passion for Business Studies andManagement cultivated. I was astonished by the amount of work and effort thatwas put into the Business by the manager and how much effect it had on thebusiness, questioning how it was possible to manage so many people and run abusiness that had a main goal of keeping a good relationship with theircustomers while making maximum sales.I then built more drive for business and strengthen theseearly interests even more after I studied Level 3 Business studies. I amparticularly interested in the management and financial side of running abusiness, and have been keen to explore how organisations manage their financialobligations and understand what drives them forward. Currently majority of theworld which we live in is hugely impacted and dominated by businesses, this reallymotivates me even more to learn the most captivating and powerful course duringmy time in university. These dynamic Businesses not only replicate but producethe values of modern societies, determining our beliefs and lifestyle choices. Thebusiness course I am currently undertaking has taught me that when consideringthe above one of the key areas within an organisation is managing theirfinances and managements.
On a larger scale, studying Human Resource Management hastaught what the importance of managing a team is and how much of a big fragmentit plays in our life. It explains managing and supervising the employers andemployees, handling wages and salaries within the business as well as how thebusiness communicates with all their employees at all levels. Human Resourcesalso educated me on how business operate at their finest and manage theiremployees correctly.During the summer holidays I undertook some voluntary workin which I worked in a takeaway, my role was to be an active cashier and alsodo some of the management side of the business. This included managing theorders, helping the workers with different tasks, managing the financial sideof the business at the end of each day and making sure everything was on timeto keep our customers well satisfied. As an active cashier, having to movearound the store I got an extensive range of view on how the business operatestogether as a team as well as assisting me to have a good idea of how themanagement side of a business can be and how challenging it can become. Being inside the business, it is interesting learning about how thebusiness thinks and performs whilst going through different various ofchallenges.Pool is a sport I really enjoy.
I don’t only see pool as ahobby however I see it an exercise for the human brain as it helps to growdifferent mental abilities such as awareness, thinking in advance, problem resolving,strategic planning and creativity. Football is another major passion. I haveplayed since the age of seven for a professional football team in which Imanaged to be the captain for my team as well as being the top scorer with overThirty goals and assists. This helped enhance my management and teamworkabilities as I learnt how to systematise the team, motivate my teammates,building better communication and chemistry as well as having better confidencewithin the team. Not only in sports but in a business environment, these skillscan have a huge influence on businesses, their goals and targets.
Throughout my time in school and college, I have managed toget various amounts of achievements from my football team, social nationalservices and other certificates for my attendance and punctuality. The rewardshelped me to stay motivated which gave me an idea of how business always keepthe employees motivated at all times in order to operate at their finest andgive out the best performance.In the Future, I would like to continue my drive and passionfor business Studies and study a business management or finance degree atuniversity.
