Now your Sims can create their own businesses. They can design their own clothing boutique, beauty salon, florist, high-end electronics shop, bustling restaurant chain, or virtually any other type of business. Hire your staff as the business grows and put talented Sims to work making toys, running the register, crafting floral bouquets, giving sales pitches, or manufacturing robots. But watch out for slacker employees and be prepared to fire them on the spot. From clever tinkerer to master craftsman, develop your Sim's talents to best suit your business needs. Will they build a thriving business empire or become eccentric entrepreneurs designing the next big thing? (http://thesims2.ea.com/about/ep3_index.php)

Heaps of fun and probably the last decent expansion before they started getting boring. Building huge businesses was great fun in this game.

This is possibly my favourite expansion (between this and Nightlife). Just a shame it needs so many mods to make it work properly.
