Business Pitch Application Due TODAY

Do you know any student entrepreneurs that could use a little money to improve their business? If so, let them know about a new student business competition "THE BUSINESS PITCH." Developed and sponsored by the Phi Beta Lambda/Enactus business club, THE BUSINESS PITCH is a student business competition loosely based on the popular NBC show Shark Tank. The goal is to provide seed/grant funding to student entrepreneurs in order to help them improve and grow their business.

APPLY TODAY! All students entrepreneurs need to do is fill out a short application, complete a short presentation, and they could win up to $500 to improve their business! Complete details, judging rubric, and application attached. You can also find all documents at http://thebusinesspitch.weebly.com/

Please pass along this information to any student entrepreneurs you know. Applications due Friday, March 20 to Stacy Molina at smolina@hawaii.

As we approach our midterms I’m sure you are all immersed in studying for them. If you are among the lucky students who aren’t stressing over midterms, but are simply chugging along with your assignments and quizzes, I’m sure you will still appreciate the sentiment as well. I thought I would take this opportunity to share some uplifting and motivational quotes and statements with you.


“SUCCESS CONSISTS OF GOING FROM FAILURE TO FAILURE WITHOUT LOSS OF ENTHUSIASM.” -Winston Churchill


“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” –Thomas A. Edison


“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” – Mahatma Gandhi


Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. ~Henry Ford


I hope these inspirational tidbits remind you to continue to persevere and to conquer that midterm, project, or assignment. You have worked so hard to get to this point and you owe it to yourself to achieve a successful outcome. Good luck to one and all!
