CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP taught me how to successfully run a business.

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

Clearly, a lot... I initially worked with my Dad at his roofing business and then transitioned into the painting industry. I enjoyed a lot of aspects of CWP and that catapulted me to do it on my own.

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

It takes hard work, patience, and knowledge to be successful on your own.


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

CWP isn't for everyone, but it can truly impact those it is meant for. Be prepared to be pushed hard and get ready to experience true entrepreneurship.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Lol- I'll just say Vegas.
