Every entrepreneur has a journey, learn how with Entrepreneurship Hour

Now is the time to take a risk. Learning to trust your gut and take a leap can make all the difference. No one ever achieved greatness by playing it safe.

It is inevitable that one will fail at some point. What you do after determines the course of your future. Sometimes you learn to go a different direction or discover a new path to a successful outcome.

College is about expanding your comfort zone experiencing new things and new ways of thinking. Learning how to look at life or problems you encounter from this fresh perspective can help you attain your goals, both personally and professionally.

Discussing, planning, strategizing are necessary, but eventually one must execute. Gaining the skills and the knowledge are only one part of the puzzle. In the end you have to roll up your sleeves and get to work.

Engaging Discussions

After their presentations, the entrepreneur will sit down with Eric Bacyinski to discuss their journey and answer questions from the audience.
