What Words Have Changed Your Life?

Don’t be afraid or discouraged of the word, No. You should be hearing it more often than not. If you are not hearing it, you are not trying hard enough. There is a solution to everything and that one yes overrides the prior 99 responses.

Why Does the World Need More Leaders with an Entrepreneurial Mindset?

Entrepreneurs are doers. They have the courage to actually initiate action and the perseverance to weather storms. Regardless of a good or a bad outcome, something is accomplished and people are better off than they were before.

What Is Your Proudest Moment in Business?

It is not a single moment but recurring; having people ask me for help. Being in a position to help someone achieve their goals inside or outside of business is always rewarding.

What Do Others Need to Know about Babson?

That your experience at Babson is not one you can find anywhere else. Babson is the culmination of 1,000 well-thought-out and tested variables, it is the definition of unique and is unable to be duplicated. You will become part of an ecosystem that is continuously evolving exponentially faster than any other I have seen.

How Do You Define Entrepreneurship?

“Entrepreneurship is the relentless pursuit of opportunity without regard for resources at hand.” Kevin Mulcahy’s definition, I think, describes the word best. If you ever have a chance to take one of his courses, you will walk away with a refreshing perspective on a multitude of topics.
