“Work before school, work before girls, work before play, and church before work,” said Nate Alder, CEO of Klymit (view their sites here and here), about the rules he lives by as a student at BYU but more importantly to him as CEO.
From an article at BYU Net by Ashley Gessel on the student entrepreneurs at BYU. Here is a nice snippet:
Derek Pando, President of the BYU Chapter of the Collegiate Entrepreneur Organization, pointed out that now, while in college, is the best time to start planning a business.
“Never will a person be in a better position where they have so many free resources and ideas, BYU tries to create an environment for entrepreneurs,” Pando said. “There is the entrepreneurship club, faculty who mentor for free and great networking opportunities.”
