I Know nothing about the printing business.
I know nothing about your business.
I know nothing about the Ice-cream business.

Can you teach me or educate me or enlighten me about your business.

    Can you teach me or educate me or enlighten me about your business. :cross:

    It is essential to have some context here.

    A: "What do you do for a living?"
    B: "I make ice-cream"
    A:"I know nothing about the ice-cream business."

    At this point, (i) do you want to learn to make ice-cream on a commercial basis, or (ii) are you simply curious about the ice-cream business and have no real interest in making it yourself?
