Margaret Kleiman, University of South Dakota
“Being an entrepreneur taught me some valuable lessons. The first lesson is the importance of hard work. […] Hard work is the key to success for every entrepreneur. Running a successful business also taught me the importance of providing knock-your-socks-off customer service! Treating customers well is the best way to have loyal customers. When customers are pleased with your work, they are likely to recommend you to other customers which helps your business grow. Above all, I learned the importance of keeping my word. Customers value honesty and integrity and want to work with someone whose word is as good as gold.”
Andrew Stez, Seattle Pacific University
“One of the key ideas I learned from Virtual Enterprise is that technology drives productivity gains. I sought to learn more about technology and the actual creation of a product through my participation on the Robotics team. […] I learned that perfecting a product takes many tries and the greatest challenge is not found in the making of the product, but in the effort required to collaborate as a team and work toward a common goal. The give and take required between individuals with different perspectives can be frustrating, but together a group of people can achieve so much more than an individual.”
