What is your story?

I am a christian, a Nebraskan and an adventurer. I grew up in an agricultural community and was very active in high school sports and activities. In 2012, I had the honor of serving as a National FFA Officer. I am a current agribusiness student and am looking forward to a career in the agriculture industry!

What is your business?

After speaking to thousands of students across the nation, I am interested in giving motivational messages to high school and junior high students and to agriculture audiences. I also am available for small group leadership work with students!

Who is your entrepreneurial inspiration OR biggest hero?

Josh Shipp. I've followed his story closely, and love that he started as a student who gave a speech at a graduation ceremony to building an empire for himself. He has a passion similar to mine, and he followed it. I've got written messages from him on my desk.

What advice would you give to a student starting their entrepreneurial journey?

Figure out your passion, identify a problem, surround yourself with people that are better than you are, and then work harder than everyone else.
