Confessions of an Entrepreneur
Confessions of an Entrepreneur brings together successful local entrepreneurs with an eclectic audience made up of Baylor students and faculty, community members and like-minded business owners. The goal of this series is two-fold: 1) to promote local business owners and 2) to show the audience that there is more than one path to successful entrepreneurship.

Speakers discuss the ins-and-outs of running a business, often bringing up topics that are not usually top of mind for student entrepreneurs.
