How to effectively showcase my online business in my application?

Hello everyone! I have been running a small online business for a couple of years now, and it has taught me valuable lessons in marketing, finance, and time management. I'm unsure if I should include this in my college application. Will this be seen as a valid extracurricular activity? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Your online business is definitely a valid extracurricular activity and can be a great addition to your college application. Make sure to provide a description of your business, outline your role and responsibilities, mention any success indicators, and emphasize the skills you've learned through this experience. If possible, try to connect it to your academic interests or future career goals. Showcasing your online business in your application will demonstrate your entrepreneurial abilities and dedication to personal growth. Best of luck with your college applications
