I have infused many of my lessons in my teachings and have gotten positive feedback, I have emails to prove it. I have begun my Entrepreneur campaign on campus. I have launched our Entrepreneur club for the students, I have begun dialogue with the foundation, all because of this great 'Take action' course.
