This past week we took a short trip to the birthplace of LimeCuda and my old stomping grounds, Grove City College.
Main reason for the visit was the former director of the Entrepreneurship department, Craig Columbus was speaking on “Living the Entrepreneurial Life”. It was a great talk and had a very genuine and frank feel. Some of the quick points from it off the top of my head:
- Be an “abundance” thinker not a “scarcity” thinker. Don’t view profit as a pie to be divided but as a pie to be grown.
- Conflict is inevitable you just need to learn to deal appropriately with it. Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of God.
- Success is rarely a straight line. You will have many failures and that is ok.

It was an inspiring talk. Craig is a brilliant and humble entrepreneur.
The next two days I spoke to a few classes:
- Digital Marketing
- The Entrepreneurial Mind
- Internet Content Marketing
I am not sure that people realize just how aggressively innovative the Entr Dept. at GCC really is. In the classes above and other they are learning how to leverage cutting-edge tech, not just things like Word and PowerPoint but WordPress, SEO, and how to write engaging content for online consumption, etc. This stuff is key, so much of modern business depends on understanding and successfully using technology.
Each time I go back I wish I could go through the program again, there are so many amazing classes. Simply amazing.
Big thank you to the Entrepreneurship Dept. for graciously hosting me again. It is always encouraging to be back and fills my tank with inspiration each time.
