Buchholz Students Keep Their Mind on Business During Panel Discussion
Published November 6th, 2013
GAINESVILLE- The event is called "Mind Your Own Business," but a group of teens is trying to make entrepreneurship everyone's business.
A panel of business leaders convened at Buchholz High School tonight to inspire teens to stay local when pursuing a future in business.
Members of Buchholz's DECA, a business marketing student organization invited the community to hear local business leaders promote entrepreneurship in Gainesville.
One lesson students took away, success starts with even the smallest idea.
Owner and founder of Corda-Roys, Byron Young had this to say about the idea behind his company, "has brought me to lots of these types of events and allowed me to speak to people, I would never be able to speak to otherwise, it's amazing that beanbags have provided all of this for me."
Last year MYOB won first place at the state DECA competition in the entrepreneurship promotion category and hopes to repeat this year in March.
