So last week we discussed how fandom teaches you good business sense, one of those useful "general skills" you'll need in your life. This week we'll explore another thing fandom teaches you.
As I noted previously, many fandom activities are run like businesses – conventions, websites, etc. They may not make money, of course – they may not be intended to – but they are like businesses in almost all regards. Thus they are very educational to work on because you learn good business sense.
