Apparently at William & Mary's new entrepreneurship center there's a wall of notable companies that W&M students have gone onto found. Companies such as @kickstarter, @hulu, @boostmobile, and @IMGmodels, among others.
Well, one of my best friends, @blabella13 walked in there this morning to find SwagUp, and myself, up amongst some of these amazing companies and founders. What an awesome surprise, I didn't even know if they remembered I existed!! Even cooler to me, out of the 60 companies/founders up on that wall, I'm the only one up there that had dropped out of W&M. And for them to put a drop out up there, to me, means a lot. It means that the mindset there is shifting. As an institution, W&M, exists to help people reach their potential and get to where they want to go, whether that means being there 1 year, 2 years, or 6 years. It doesn't matter. Anyone coming out of the ecosystem should be celebrated and W&M should be proud of the role they played in that person's life, even if they didn't "finish"
It makes me super happy to see the strides that William & Mary has made to promote entrepreneurship in such a short amount of time. When I left school almost 3 years ago, the entrepreneurship culture there was basically non-existent, apart from a handful of people like @joelaresca @rmdtzgjr.stl and @sniff16. Starting businesses out of my dorm, I felt so out of place. I didn't want to work for someone, I wanted to build something for myself, and I want others to realize they can do the same. --
Although I dropped out, it doesn't mean that I've lost my connection to William & Mary. My 2+ years that played a huge role in shaping me. I'm looking forward to going back there in the future to give back, help promote entrepreneurship, and give back!
ENERGY // We've all had those days where we just feel drained, and all that would make us feel better is to sleep for about 20 hours. If you're feeling like this more often than not, then it's time to have a good think about what's consuming so much of your energy. What can you cut down on to make yourself feel like a human again?
