Comments Off on College of Management Updates, Week of 3/25
Happy Friday all,
Check out this special opportunity to hear from Bill Cummings- see below.
A Conversation with Bill Cummings, author of “Starting Small and Making it Big: An Entrepreneur’s Journey to Billion-Dollar Philanthropist”: Local author, entrepreneur, and billion-dollar philanthropist explains how he went from selling ice cream from the back of his bike and washing windows to building a 500-person firm near Boston with a debt-free portfolio of 11 million square feet of commercial real estate. Experience his achievements and adventures as well as his setbacks and personal tragedies during seven decades.
For anyone studying business, building a business, or running a business, Bill’s journey also offers keen insights, cautionary observations, and the pioneering thinking that produced great prosperity and a multibillion-dollar enterprise. For everyone else, it offers a new and engrossing twist on the classic American success story.
