Though I have it framed, my first dollar didn't make me feel like my company was real yet. Even my ever-evolving website didn't make me feel the weight of owning my own business, of having clients and employees counting on me to deliver on my word. My logo and company name, which make me proud, felt more like party decorations for a room with no guests in it. Then, last week, a friend spotted the 9Terrains ad in the Blue Lapis Light program and posted a snapshot on Facebook. I don't know why, but this made me understand that my friends and customers are absolutely is as real as bricks and mortar.
My Immigrant MBA
My parents were pretty heartbroken that I decided not to go to MBA school after being accepted at UT McCombs. Due to the high cost of business school, I nervously decided to start my first business without it. To my delight, it turns out that everything I needed to know, I already learned growing up as a first generation American.
