A Day in the Life of a Student Entrepreneur

Building a business in college is beyond challenging. It stretches you to form a new set of habits which include sacrificing your social life to fulfill the vision for your idea.

Building a business in college is one of the craziest things you can do considering that most people choose to enroll in a college to increase their chances of getting a job.

My experience of building a business in college taught me more about the importance of intellectual property, networking, and reputation management than any class ever could.

Watch my video, “A Day in the Life of a Student Entrepreneur,” for a look into my life as a business owner.

Danielle’s Journey to $200,000+ in Scholarships & a Debt-Free Degree

I have learned more in the last four years than any other period of my life. The bulk of my education didn’t come from within the four walls of the traditional classroom.

My life-changing education came from the testing of my faith and the shaping of my character. My two favorite teachers are God and Thomas Harrelson, Jr.

This video contains the highlights of my journey over the last four years. I explain what I did to earn more than $200,000 in scholarships to graduate debt-free from Virginia Tech.

You won’t learn everything, but you may learn something that you didn’t know before.

The Advantage of the Kid Who Knows How to Hustle

As a student at Virginia Tech, I often wondered why students weren’t committed to graduating debt-free. I questioned why an extreme amount of focus was placed on binge drinking during the weekends and not on increasing our net worth.

As a graduate who has a better understanding of Americans’ nonchalant attitude toward debt, I strive to educate those who are pursuing a college degree.

One of the most recent discoveries in my findings in the difference in my journey and those of my peers’ is “The Advantage of the Kid Who Knows How to Hustle.” Please watch the video below for insight into how an unmatched ability to overcome every obstacle will positively impact your life.
