TRANSLATION: It’s been a while
Hello everybody. Its been a while since I have posted. It seems that this program has really been keeping everyone busy. It has taken me a while to get all caught up from my wonderfully relaxing time back home during Labor day. Since my last posting we have finished our Global Entrepreneurship class and have begun an International Management class.
This week’s highlights in brief:
- Our team took first place in our entrepreneurship class, which was surprising to me. I’m glad our team pulled together and was able to come up with the market research, business plan, presentation, and presentation speaking points – even after switching the idea midway though our alotted time of three weeks. I thought for sure that some of the other business ideas presented would have taken home the prize – everything from new market areas to bio-fuels and a mall-based recording studio to global immersion consultants and family therapy in foreign markets. Excellent job everyone.
- A friend of mine who I had met on a short trip to Texas stopped by for a few drinks. It is amazing to think that one can create such meaningful connections with people so far away and keep them intact. I had a great time hanging out a Speakeasy’s with Josh.
- Finished my Personal Leadership Development plan.
- Slept more than 8 hours in one night. ^_^
Now, the rest of this weekend is dedicated to figuring how the economy of Iceland. Enjoy yours!
