One Way To Become A Better Entrepreneur

Becoming better at anything takes a lot of work and, as you will find out in this edition of the CSUF Entrepreneurship Insider from Center for Entrepreneurship John Bradley Jackson, working with a CSUF Consulting team is one way to achieve that goal.

It is said that curiosity killed the cat but I do not know of a single successful entrepreneur who has heeded that warning. In fact, it’s just the opposite; curiosity is in every entrepreneur’s DNA.

Every entrepreneur I know makes time to learn new things and expose themselves to new ideas. Whether they are attending a talk to learn how to give a great pitch to investors or engaging in a consulting project with one of our CSUF Consulting teams to learn new business techniques they have committed themselves to continuously improving themselves and, by extension, their businesses.

Of the many benefits that our CSUF Consulting clients receive one of the most important is a more thorough understanding of how to think and act like an entrepreneur. Through close collaboration with our consulting teams, our clients are able to internalize the processes by which they can think and act more strategically about their businesses. These lessons tend to stick with our clients for a lifetime and there is always something new to learn.

We are still looking for clients for the spring semester and if you are interested in becoming a client or know of a company that would be a good fit for the CSUF Consulting program please fill out an application and submit it to Client Project Specialist Charlesetta Medina via email at cymedina@fullerton.edu or give her a call at (657) 278-8243.

Sincerely,
