Initially I was a bit concerned about the self-reflection process and how I would go about it because I’m not, what I perceive, to be a professional writer. I felt that it was geared toward someone with a professional background and not someone like myself, who’s just seeking to advance in my professional career as a business executive.

I have taken away from this course the ability to identify a specific genre that I’m targeting and compose a message so that it’s geared towards that audience in a way that they understand.
