Thanks a lot to the current internet services team.

Lastly just want to give you a heads up on some key initiatives kicking off as well.  If you would like to be involved please utilize the contacts indicated below or anyone on the NAB.

What advice would you give an aspiring entrepreneur?

“Figure out your WHY. Ask yourself, why do you want to do this? and keep asking why.. You must completely commit and surrender to your decision.”

How do you spend your ’spare time’?

  1. What prepares you better, campus life or life experiences outside of college?

Campus life and life experience coincide.  You have to make good personal decision in both life and on              campus.  When in school, you have to make sure you go to class and study.  In life, you have to make sure you go to work and do your job to the best of your ability.
