“Finance Academy explained how to make a pitch accurately and proficiently. Though becoming an entrepreneur is not a passion of mine, knowing how to professionally persuade someone can come in handy at any time. Thus, practicing and being educated on making a pitch will prepare me for my career as a nuclear physicist.”
“My dreams for the future are very realistic and I have worked and worked for what I have already, and I still plan on doing that to fulfill my dreams. I am going to Marshall University to study physical therapy and I want to be able to get my own firm up and running by the time I am 25 or 36.”
“I learned many things, but my biggest take away from Finance Academy was the value of a solid business plan in formulating, operating, growing and sustaining a business.”
