January 9, 2022 // Young Entrepreneurs Expo

This weekend, EES Success Academy students participated in a local Business Expo. They were super excited to set up their booth and present their products and or services to the public for the first time. "Peoples' response to the student entrepreneurs was priceless. People just don't expect children to be mature, respondible or business oriented. I always tell the children, you are a secret weapon because no one sees you coming. They will overlook you or dismiss you as just another child until they begin to engage you in conversation. Then they will KNOW not to sleep on you!" ~Dr. Jones
