Inspiring Future Entrepreneurs / by Jasmine Tate

While “Retaining Inspiration” last week, I discovered notes from the first guest blog post I wrote for the University of Alabama’s PRSSA Chapter.

The blog was a recap of one of my favorite sessions of the PRSSA 2016 Regional Conference targeting aspiring entrepreneurs. In the session Rick Looser, president and chief operating officer of the Cirlot Agency in Jackson, MS, provided Seven Tips on Entrepreneurship as a Young Professional. Check out the blog and some "Real World" exclusive quotes below. 

 "It’s not enough to love flowers… You’ve got to hate weeds."
 "Money doesn’t make you anything but more of who you are."
 "Become memorable to the people that matter."
 "Be an excessive note writer; nothing replaces a personal note."
 "Don’t let the urgent overtake the important."

Following the session, I met Looser and had the opportunity to visit Cirlot for a PRSSA Agency Tour.
