David Gass ran WRLC 2011′s Entrepreneurship workshop.
Before I dive into the workshop, I must provide a brief biography of the workshop’s teacher, David Gass.
-He used to be a DECA officer on the State and National level.
-He started his first business at 15 years old selling fruit on the side of the road.
-He’s owns 8 businesses, whether he owns and operates them or owns a portion through investment.
-One of his businesses involves buying and selling websites.
The program for his session was really interactive but he did have one rule, raise your hand before you speak.
A major bonus was that there were scholarship opportunities for winners.
Key info from the workshop:
-The tool to conquer fear = confidence.
-The fuel for confidence = ACTION.
-There is net worth and there is self worth.
-Net worth = Salary
-Self worth = True value and potential. It’s up to you and it can always change.
-Your net worth will stop growing based upon your self worth. David Gass inspired his students to GetDECA and set their self worth high!
-Trust is key, David Gass once hired someone to so accounting who didn’t know much on accounting due to the fact that he trusted him. He had previously been stolen from by other accountants.
-If you find there’s a market missing for something with potential demand, think about creating the market.
-blacksocks.com sold black socks and nothing else for 3 years and had about $3.5 million in sales. Recognize demand, succeed.
