I'm writing a term paper on starting my own business. In the process of a year I started my own company and as my research topic, I chose to chronicle the entire process. For some reason (probably sleeping 3 hours a night) I'm having trouble writing my "Methods" section. I am unsure what type of study I'm doing (i.e. quantitative, qualitative, case study, longitudinal, explanatory research, exploratory research, etc.) If someone could help me determine the type of research I'm doing before my head explodes I'd greatly appreciate it.
