I have two stories that fall into this category. The first was born out of a natural curiosity and personal interest in eBay, which made me want to learn more about it. It’s ideal for entrepreneurs who want to start their own business, because they no longer have to deal with the overhead and expense that is involved with setting up a brick and mortar operation.

While many students were trying to figure out where the next party was, they were pitching their business to local vendors. I was really impressed with their maturity, vision, business sense and level of success.
