Belmont University

BBA, Finance/Music Business


While at this school I started an Entrepreneur business club and served as the president while still attending. 

I affiliated the club with the ACE (Association of Collegiate Entrepreneurs) and attended the annual conferences where I networked and met budding entrepreneurs such as Michael Dell before he went public, and international young entrepreneurs from other countries including Russia. 

A major accomplishment of mine at this school was engaging the business school in the idea of promoting entrepreneurship in their program. As a result, this school now has an Entrepreneurship program.
