Last year I taught my students how to create professional business plans. This year I had a student come to me and say " Mr. Ayres, check out my business plan. I did it just like you taught me last year, took it to the SBA and they are giving me a small business loan to get my business going".
Awesome! I absolutely love hearing that. Again, that is why I teach.
A student took my Personal Finance course. The week the semester ended he competed in the BPA Idaho State Competition and come in 1st place out of 24 competitors. At nationals he became Precision Exam Certified in Mathematics of Business and Personal Finance. The most satisfying part is he said he knew virtually nothing about personal finance before he took my course. I am so proud of him and grateful that I was able to help facilitate his success.
