Be Your Own Boss

Do you want a seat at the table, or do you want to own the tables, chairs, room and building? Entrepreneurship can create a world of opportunity. It is undoubtedly hard work but it can ultimately be very rewarding. Knowledge is power, and our featured student personifies this.

David Drake owns his own business, reOneSpot.com. His website serves as a resource for real estate agents. David knew the site was useful, but he wanted to enhance it. With the rapid pace of technology, this business owner knew his site needed to be more than useful – it needed to be on the cutting edge.

“Everything we are doing now is online and in the cloud,” he said. “If you’re not familiar with how this stuff works, you’re at the will of other people.”

Our Web Design & Development program was David’s solution. He was able to combine his experience in graphic design with his affinity for technology. Another appeal was the instructors who actively work in the web design and development field.

“For less than the cost of paying someone to build a website, I could pay for myself to attend class and learn it quicker,” David said. “The return on investment was huge.” Since completing the program, David has been able to enhance marketing for his business through a new-and-improved site. He’s also incorporated email marketing campaigns and tracks his success through Google Analytics. Read more about David’s path to success on our blog.

Are you ready to call the shots? Let us help you get started. Meeting & Event Management, Culinary Apprenticeship, Personal Financial Planner – these are among our many certificate programs that could be a catalyst for your path to entrepreneurship. Are you ready to take that first step?

Learning Never Ends

Continuing education programs offer something for everyone. The heart of our College is professional development, and our variety of programs is designed to take you from your first career and beyond.

Delores Armstead is a woman who truly understands the power of lifelong learning. She was inspired by her daughter, a KSU student, and decided to explore continuing education courses to hone her skills. Delores started with Microsoft Office courses and earned her first professional certificate. After taking a few courses in our Paralegal Certificate program, Delores transitioned into the Administrative Professional program. Successful completion of this course combined with the knowledge gained from the Paralegal courses proved to be advantageous – Delores was hired as a member of a legal affairs team.

She said the Administrative Professional course provided her with the confidence in her professional role, and she has her eyes set on completing the Paralegal certificate. In her own words, “Education is vital to success.” It’s this type of positive thinking and initiative that is beneficial in our lives, both personally and professionally. Read more about Delores on our blog and prepare to be inspired.

You can also take a cue from her and consider the complementary nature of our continuing education programs. For example, position yourself as an in-demand office professional by completing the Administrative Professional, Customer Service Specialist and Basic Office Technology programs. Cisco and ISSP certificates could propel you to a long career in IT and cybersecurity. Meeting and Event Management combined with Social Media Marketing could launch your career in the hospitality industry.

These programs are stepping stones to building a successful career. Be fearless in your journey to the top!
