Evan Laird

Student at University of Wisconsin - Whitewater
I never know where to start with these things so I guess I'll start at the beginning of college. I came into college not really knowing what to do with my life. Not to brag, but I knew I was intelligent and always had the confidence that I could be great at anything, but didn't know what that one thing I wanted to be great at was. So I tried my hand at almost every business major possible. In my short one and a half year journey I finally found my calling or better yet callings, Entrepreneurship and Accounting. I fell in love with both for their separate reasons and the challenges they bring me. I realized I didn't have to choose either or, but I could do both. Which leads me to where I am today, working on my own startup (our landing page is attached below) and working towards my MPA and CPA at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Being a lifelong learner is the most important trait I've gained in college. I'm always trying to better myself and gain new skills and knowledge. Over the course of 10 months I have read 16 business, economics, and psychology books, my favorite of which is the Power of Broke by Daymond John. The book was perfect, it shared stories entrepreneurs using being broke as a force to grow their business, so being a broke college student trying to start his own venture this really hit home. Also because of my startup, Ive decided to learn how to develop iOS applications using Swift and Xcode and have already created 29 simple to complex apps (my github account is attached below). I'm not just a young adult trying to make his way in the world, I'm trying to change the world and impact people's lives along the way. Whether it's through building applications, building a startup into Fortune 500 company, or climbing the ladder to CEO of a multinational corporation, I'm not sure. The only thing I'm sure of is that Im going to change the world in some way, shape, or form.
