Hey readers! I hope everyone has been able to stay focused but still enjoy this spring-like weather in February.
Last semester, I introduced in a blog that I am Director of Marketing and Social Media. Marketing has been an interest of mine ever since I began my college career. I have been gaining experience in this field through internships. For the past year I’ve had an internship at Taylor-Leonard Corporation and work closely with Kelly Leonard, Co-Founder and CEO of Taylor-Leonard Corporation. Why do I tell you all of this? Kelly will actually be speaking at the Skilled for Success: Building an Entrepreneurial Mindset panel on March 7th from 6:00-8:00 pm here at The Universities at Shady Grove!
I saw my connection with Kelly as a great opportunity to share with all of you and asked her a couple of questions in regards to the event.
Q: Why do you feel this event is beneficial to college students?
A: Open forum Q&A + Opportunity to build relationships with a group of entrepreneurs who have subject matter expertise and a willingness to help you pursue entrepreneurial endeavors.
Q: What is one piece of advice you’d give yourself when you were in your 20s?
A: Associations are everything. Master relationship building. Seek out people doing what you aspire to do and ask them if they’d be willing to allow you to shadow them. Then, be a sponge.
Since I personally know Kelly and based off of her answers to these questions, I have no doubt in my mind that the panel will be extremely beneficial from her and all the other speakers. Also, it’s a chance to network among your peers and possible professionals that will be attending the event! I’ll definitely be there March 7th. Will you?
Hope to see you there! As always, ‘til next time! 🙂
