Brief Description of Duties / Responsibilities

Strategy Consultant for companies seeking feasibility analysis and financial valuations.

What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

I was asked to be on a feasibility analysis and valuation team for an electronic invoicing system at Wal-Mart Argentina. The scale was incredible and I truly loved my international experience in Argentina. In addition, I met a group of upper management and they were amazing people.

CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP provided me the tools and confidence to build a successful business in any industry.

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

Immediately after graduation I started my own gold and silver trading company. I wouldn't have been able to do that without the experience I gained at CWP.

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

Plan the work. Work the plan. Just go and start knocking on "doors" sooner rather than later one of them will open and an amazing opportunity will present itself. You just have to knock!

Advice

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

Plan the Work. Work the Plan. Plan your fun first, it will give you motivation. Then plan your work. Just stick to it day in and day out. Go knock on doors, put yourself in front of people, have a great time!

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

Just go out there and get it done. Never stop learning, and educate yourself to the best of your abilities.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Canvasing on Saturday and Sunday mornings. It was a great feeling when you got appointments set doing it.

Last words of wisdom

Don't be discouraged, just stick to the plan. It's a numbers game, keep your head down, have as much fun as you possibly can while still working the plan.
