Ypsilanti Classroom Invite

When we were in Michigan in October, I received a message on my cell phone from a teacher at an all boy’s academy in Ypsilanti, MI. The teacher, Lawrence, wanted me to speak to his class of 3rd -5th graders about being in business and entrepreneurship. I said sure, we would do it, so my brother Tom and I headed over to their school and met a great group of young men very interested in becoming businessmen. The school last year started with 5 kids and now has grown past 20 and we were very impressed with the job Lawrence was doing with his students. The video below is a talk I gave and questions the students in Ypsilanti had for us. After our talk, they actually started to do fundraisers to get themselves started in their own Italian Ice business.
Here is a link to their school if you want to help them out. DM

Larry Garman & Lacey Jean

In the state of Washington, individuals who receive state support must be working, or on a pathway to employment. With her parents’ help, Lacey Jean Davis of Montesano, Washington, who is disabled by cerebral palsy, has become not just a valuable member of the workforce, she is an entrepreneur!
In fact, she was named the Entrepreneur of the Year at a Dinner in her honor in Michigan in October. The video below features her Dad, Larry Garman, speaking on her behalf.
