Brenda's MBA experience | London Business School



enterpreneurship has been like a rollercoaster so far I didn't haven't even started officially did it's kind of exciting he's kind of scary yes well some years ago I was rejected from London Business School and they said that I needed more work experience which I think it was true so the second time I was super scared but then I got the good news once you are in you get a email and then all these community begins to work and you get calls from the Alumni students from ApS were also calling to congratulate you and welcome youth you feel engaged from the first moment that they tell you are you I mean at the beginning you are almost scared thinking oh my god what am I going to leave but then they arrive here and everything's fine we have a small flood but I think it's enough for what we need this couple of years it's also ten minutes away from school so you can walk the Reach's park and get there the first term was amazing it was a lot of work but it was also the term where everyone wants to meet with everyone and everyone wants to have fun if you are married you get a lot of going out with other couples and going to restaurants and enjoying London in a different way and when you are in the singles group you have a lot of parties and going to the wind store and sundowners in my case I was by myself because my husband I was in here yes I think I'm lucky because I had the chance of experience both academically speaking it was the hardest term there was a lot of stuff to do but it's not impossible like if you allocate some time to read you manage and you've passed your courses and you actually learn a lot when I came here I thought I was well I thought I was going to explore the possibility of changing industries or maybe just learning a lot in order to go be in a higher position I always wanted to do my own business but I just didn't have the right idea this summer I decided not to do an internship when I these entrepreneurial summer school this is not statistically sampled data this is qualitative data they know how to teach you and have to show you what you're supposed to be looking for the idea just came it was fear that I wanted to introduce coconut water in Chile so that's that's a nice idea I went to Chile for two weeks it was great because I had the opportunity to research more my idea people who I talked to had never seen it like the store owners or managers they were like this is really new nobody has come with this kind of idea before so I think I'm in the right time since the summer the business idea has evolved a lot I focus most of my second year on entrepreneurship courses so new venture development is the class where we actually work on the business plan and if you have an idea you go and you develop your business plan for that idea if you don't you are welcome to join any team that is developing a business idea in my case I went through the list of all the class participants before before the term started and I went one by one looking for the people that could actually help me I'm so happy with what we came up with and they know that I'm going to do it for real so they've been really helpful and open to stay in touch just to be able to keep talking about it I applied for some government grant in Chile and like two weeks ago I got the bad news that I didn't get that money and it was devastating that was so sad it was good to be here though because I have very close friends that were around they just tell you keep going keep going we develop the packaging for that I hired a designer by crossing so it's cheap I have another friend from LVS who used to work in Google she's helping me as well to put it together and upload it so there's a lot of people working in these in different ways one of the best experiences I had this term was my GV which is the global business experience I went to your Hannah's room they make entrepreneurs that I was supposed to help he had a small business he was a sole trader he had had this business for like 20 years it was it was very interesting because he actually understood the basics of the his business he just didn't have the the tools or the ideas to make it like bigger so we came up with some concepts of marketing branding and I think he got the idea you forget that there are some people there like a struggling and just fighting and that maybe there are deeper things that turn just like looking for the ideal job right so I think the DVD gives you that it's been really really fast I cannot believe I'm leaving I think it was the right decision to come if I went back on time I will make the same decisions all over again to come here and learn what I have learned meet the people that I have made make the friends that I have made it enriches you and makes you grow as a person not only in the professional side but also in the personal side you learn about humility leadership friendship many things you
