We would develop a marketing campaign that would cater to the athletes and their family’s needs. We would promote ourselves as the company that will supply the items needed for all the action sports enthusiasts and their families. Once we have our foundation built up this would be an opportunity to offer sponsorships to up and coming athletes. This would not only allow us to advertise, but it would show that we support our community as well. I think a strong presence in the community is important for a company to show loyalty to their product and industry. This company is a dream of my husband and I.

I plan to run the administrative side of the company. I will be responsible for accounting and maintaining contracts with all of our manufacturers, maintaining our sponsorship contracts, payroll and HR.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
