LCCC Hosts Entrepreneurship Day
Have you ever wanted to start your own business? Do you have questions about owning a business? Do you have a goal to someday be your own boss? Today, Laramie County Community College (LCCC) hosted their inaugural Entrepreneurship Day. It gave students and community members a chance to ask entrepreneurs questions about what it takes to maintain a business and what drives someone to become a business owner.
The Panelists of entrepreneurs included:
Bob GrandPre of Hammer Time Custom Construction
Mary Billiter, author and weekly Casper Star-Tribune columnist
Cody Quick of Quick Livestock Company, LLC
Shawn Cook of The Furnace Shop
In response to one of the questions, Mary gave three pointers to achieving success as an entrepreneur, “Be willing to ask. Be persistent. Don’t be satisfied with just enough.” Also, Cody had this advice, “Don’t waste your time in college. There are sharks out there ready to take your place.” Although the audience laughed, there was a moment that most thought about what this meant for their future.
LCCC now offers the Entrepreneurship Business Plan program, which is designed to be added to career or occupational degrees or as a stand-alone credit diploma. To find out more visit their website.
