A Basic Introduction of AS Business

Hello everyone! I have created this blog so that I can use it for my own revision! I felt that it was a creative way in which I can remember the things needed for my exams in May. I have never done business before this point in my education so it’s all relatively new to me.

On this post I will be discussing the key words I learnt at the start of the school year in September! (If anyone has any suggestions as to how I can improve this, please feel free to leave a comment.)
