National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship
I had the great pleasure to share some of my entrepreneurial experiences with the girls at the Soledad Enrichment Action Charter School – Girls’ Academy.
I was really touched by one of the girls (photographed to the right of me) who slipped me this handwritten letter before I left
I just wanted to thank you for taking your time and coming in and talking to us. You are a very strong woman. And you are very successful. I look up to you. Now that I know you can do it. I have confidence and faith that I can do it too. I love music, art and coffee. I hope to one day open a coffee shop. I want to start my own business. Someday but I’m not sure. But I have a lot of confidence. Thank you! and thanks for the bag. I really appreciate it. Have a blessed day
I can’t wait to go back and talk to more young people! It was one of the highlights of my year so far.
