All students focus their attention on how to enhance their brand and influence, develop a better understanding of business operations as an employee, contractor or business owner and to work alongside a community of industry professionals and peers who inspire them to move forward. Furthermore, each student is paired with a coach to help them develop and employ a 2-month action plan.

Industry profesionals and peers in the audience step up in real time to let them know which resources they can provide.
