Liking doing business

Post by STEVENSAKURA » Sat Sep 11, 2010 5:14 pm

A: When did you start liking doing business? / When did you start being interested in doing business?
B: I became interested in doing business when I was still in nursery school. I think I have the gift to do business.

- Are these sentences natural enough? :) The first part of B's is just a joke :)

Thanks so much!

"doing business" is an activity. You are using it as a field of study or a career path. It's like asking a mathemetician when he started to like doing addition instead of when he started to like mathematics. "Nursery school" is out-dated in the US. It is called pre-school now.
A: When did you start being interested in business?
B: I have been interested in business since pre-school. I think I have a gift for business.
