CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

The course adjustment my life needed to get me to my goals!

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

Still in College, running another small business on the side. After CWP, a long week isn't overwhelming; it is enjoyed!

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

I cant control the world, and the circumstances around me, however I can control my response to them.


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

Try to see the end from the beginning, don't focus so hard on the bark of the trees, that you forget to look at the beautiful forest!

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

Complete the CWP internship as a top branch, repeat the program if needed to achieve. Work to earn a DM position, accept it and be the best! You'll learn everything you will need at CWP.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Standing on the front of a yacht with my VP, cruising around a lake talking about my future, with all the confidence that I was aimed to achieve every detail!

Last words of wisdom

When opportunity knocks, the time to prepare has past.
