Mission Tuition Financial Aid and College Life by a Student

Another project that I have been hard at work on is Mission Tuition. Paying for college is not easy, neither is securing financial aid, student loans or finding money in general. In addition to paying for college, Mission Tuition has posts on all sorts of advice from student travel to cool websites for college students.

Take Some Time to Breath

It's been a bit since my last post, the work seems to pile on quite easily in college. I finally had a chance to spend time really relaxing this weekend. I refused to open any books from Thursday to Saturday. A few friends and I got off campus and away from all the noise and information overload. A little fresh air, golf and good food really helped to provide some a chance to rejuvenate.

I've really begun to realize how important it is to stay focused but allow yourself some breathing time. Activities like golf, walking and light sports, all provide a great way to stop the hustle. This is pretty obvious advice, but I feel like the pressure I put on myself to succeed can blind me form realizing that life needs to be enjoyed not just worked.

Take some time to breath...

Old Skool

A friend of a friend started this website called It contains downloads for many old applications including original AIM, Skype, realplayer and many more. It is definitely a great idea and the guy is making a nice little allowance off of it. I would recommend a quick look!

Conversation with Dan Marques

Last week I had the chance to sit down with Dan Marques and get a better understanding of his approach to blogging and entrepreneurship. After observing many entrepreneurs, it seems to me there is a spectrum from those who wish to do whatever they can to make the most cash and those who want to truly innovate and offer something completely new to society. I asked Dan where he felt his own motivations are. He commented on how his goal is not to come up with money making schemes nor try to invent the cure for cancer but rather focus on developing innovative systems for his entrepreneurial ventures. Undergoing the development of multiple businesses through Invenio, Dan continues to shape systems that will allow him to simply press start and have all the necessary pieces in place.

I agree that system development allows entrepreneurs to maximize both their time and success rate. Currently, my biggest hindrance is probably researching potential business ideas. Hopefully I can develop some sort of system of research that can allow me to understand a market without having to spend weeks researching. Of course, this type of approach would be used for smaller scale ventures where extensive and scientific research would not be required.

"Marketing is the fuel that drives the business engine"
Dan Marques

I thought Dan's quote was pretty good!

Building Relationships

Yesterday, I attended Boston University's Net Impact Case Competition, and was able to meet and listen to the key note speaker, Mike Sears. Mr. Sears is the former CFO of Boeing, a little company that builds toy-planes, and I was really inspired by the emphasis on relationship building that he had in his speech. The general purpose of the speech was addressing ethics, however his focus on developing a relationship with all those involved in your business, reminds me that you cannot focus on making money first.

This applies perfectly to my DJ Business Liquid Point Entertainment. In a service business, building the customer relationship must come first, considering the customer has usually no tangible evidence of the quality of my service. Once I establish a relationship with my client, they place trust in me and in my services, which of course in the end leads to profits!

"If you build it (relationships), they will come (money)!"

Blogging is Investing

Lately I have been trudging through all of the resources available to new bloggers. One interesting article I came across compares blogging to investing. Written by "Mr Snitch," it focuses on identifying seven different styles of blogging which match up with seven different styles of investing. It is an interesting analogy and something very useful for all you trade-bloggers out there!
