Pick a subject that will help you develop the skills to CREATE products or services that you enjoy and have a genuine interest in. If you’re an expert at something, you can always learn to market it. ;-) Any major that helps you become a better writer, speaker and creative thinker is good as well. Consider communications, design, cognitive science, marketing or business.
