I learned to run a business at the age of 19 while I was a full time student at Gonzaga University. I had no idea what I was doing or whether or not I'd be successful, but wanted a chance to find out. My GM and the staff at College Pro gave me all of the support and resources to be successful - I put in the work but they gave me the skill to do it, and it was the best thing I could have done for myself. I was proud of having produced nearly $700,000 in work by the 60+ employees that worked for me during the years I ran a franchise at College Pro. It was the hardest thing I ever did--the challenge was real, but the confidence, the network, the culture and the leg-up it gave me for the rest of my life were invaluable.
