Contributing New Ideas to iMADdu…by Alinah Mphofe

I joined iMADdu as a chance to help a new organization grow! I thought that it would help me broaden my knowledge of business. Throughout high school I always took a business type class whether it was Intro to Business, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, or Advanced Marketing, I wanted to learn more!

I was part of an organization called DECA. As a class we would go to business conventions and marketing events. I even helped create the flyers and marketing for our high schools Prom Dress Event. When I started college I took Intro to Business and passed with a B+. During that semester we looked at stocks, did a stock project, business plans, and how our plans for a business could be influenced by the economy. I worked in a small business typesetting in the past. With that knowledge I wanted to try a new environment in a new city with a similar field of work.

In the short term, I wanted a fresh start for a change. Where I use to work I shared an area with my boss and always helped her as much as possible. I spent most of my time in the office and grew to not hate it but want fewer days being there. Coming to iMADdu once a week, every Friday, makes working here not boring or tiring. Instead of doing the typical desk work I was given assignments to read, research, write in my own words, and explain. This made me feel more like I was contributing new ideas rather than the same old day in day out routine.
