My Story and Inspiration
My Story and Inspiration
Hi there, my name is Alex Hamm, and I am an 18 year old entrepreneur passionate about education and creating products that inspire people to change the world.
While still in high school, I started a publishing website on success and personal development called http://attitudes4innovation.com. The site has grown from tiny little blog to a vibrant community of ambitious readers and committed writers who consistently contribute amazing content.
This website was my first taste of entrepreneurship, and I have not since looked back. Since the start of that journey, I have also started a social media marketing consulting firm, and have had the privilege and opportunity to work with many wonderful companies and help them accelerate their social media presences.
I am particularly inspired by people such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffet, Gary Vaynerchuk, and the hundreds of others who have used their insights and ideas to transform the world we love in today.
BALL STATE UNIVERSITY
I have been selected to attend Ball State University’s entrepreneurial program this Fall, one of the top programs in America for young entrepreneurs. Attending this university will allow me to accelerate my growth as an entrepreneur and become a world class entrepreneur.
My Dream To Transform The World:
Attending this University next starting in the Fall of 2014 will empower me with the right tools, skills, and network to create innovative businesses throughout my life. This particular college has developed a special curriculum, which includes real life opportunities to start businesses and opportunities to network with and seek mentorship from world class entrepreneurs, CEOs, venture capitalists, and angel investors. I hope to partner with some of them and bring my innovative ideas to life.
What I Need:
Breakup of the funding I will need to attend Ball State:
Fall semester classes: $10,500
Living Expenses: $6,000
What I Can Cover Personally: $4,500
Amount to be raised: $13,500
Even if I do not reach the entire goal, all the funds raised here would be used to fund my tuition and living expenses to participate at Ball State University.
