We recently had the opportunity to listen to a presentation by Adam Steen from Transition Capital Management. He discussed a variety of different subjects, but what interested me the most were his points and advice for communicating in college.

1. Get Networked
– Each person is a resource
– Get the courage to add value
– Creating a blog as a resource –> blog can network for you

2. Create Success For Others
– What goes around comes around
– Helping others is a great way to help yourself too

3. Don’t Hesitate to go to Lunch or Coffee
– There is a 0% chance if you don’t try
– Professionals, more likely than not, want to help students in college (have you seen “Catch Me If You Can”?)

4. Read everything you can, but don’t believe everything
– Reading a variety of opinions is a great way to create a well-rounded opinion about different topics

5. When you get in a jam, THINK
– Don’t let constraints bother you!

Thank you for allowing me to speak to your group. I had a great time and would love to bring some other resources in for real world validation!

Great notes by the way!
