"Definitely give it a try! It helps teach you that business is more than just your surface ideas, you have to continue going more in-depth and it's not something that you just use your first idea and you run with. You have to be creative. You have to be intuitive and that's something each person can get to realize first hand... in a fun, entertaining, realistic setting."
