CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

Just Show Up!!!

How did your CWP experience impact your career? Immediately after graduation? Now?

It gave me the tools and confidence to go get what I wanted both in school and in starting my own business.

What was the greatest lesson you learned from your CWP experience?

Hard work and perseverance. When your having a bad day, keep on truckin and things will come your way as long as you don't give up.

Advice

What advice do you have for potential CWP participants? Current CWP participants?

Potential - This is no walk in the park. It will test you both mentally and physically so be in it to win it or look for an internship fetching coffee. Current - Good job on making it this far! Keep on the hard work and everything will come together over the summer. Make sure you promote at houses near a job-site you're working on. Its the lowest hanging fruit your gonna get so make sure to pick it. (My biggest regret other than not going to Cancun lol.)

What's your best advice for someone interested in entering your career field?

If you want to start your own business you really have to be passionate about what you're doing otherwise don't even bother. Do some soul searching to really figure out what you enjoy and then spend allot of time coming up with business ideas(not product ideas.) When you have 25 research, test, validate and launch! You will never come up with an idea that no has thought of before. The difference will be that you are the one who acted and followed through on it.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Events and biweekly call parties. Working side by side with people going through the same thing you are and people who have done it before is allot of fun. You meet some great people.

Last words of wisdom

Fake it till you make it!
