Louisville DEX Trip
Here's just some of what I've been up to during my extended blogging absence...
I went to Louisville this past weekend with school. This is the fourth year I've been involved with DEX and my third trip with them, past trips included Orlando (2007) and Anaheim, CA (2009). (Become a fan or "like" Belmont Entrepreneurship on Facebook here)
I daresay this year was the most fun, we had a fabulous group of students, and of course the best advisers. To boot I had had great roomies, and my sister daughter in Alpha Gam (Sarah) came as well!
Sarah and I competed in the Entrepreneurial Challenge and placed in third! Our business idea was called Hello Cupcake, and you're surely be hearing more about that soon, I'm hoping to tape our 5 minute pitch!
