Business Advice from the Professionals
There's no better inspiration for our scholars than learning from successful business owners who started out just like them. We were incredibly fortunate to have Dr. Gideon J. Lewis (co founder of "Drink Chia") and Kristen Wilson (Lead DJ/MC + Owner of "Our Dj Rocks") helping us build an entrepreneurial spirit at One School of the Arts! They shared their stories and empowered our scholars to dream, plan and prepare to present in front of the Sharks for Shark Tank.
