Cairril.com principal Cairril Mills was recently a featured speaker on a panel of successful entrepreneurs at Indiana University’s Networking Nights.
Sponsored by the Career Development Center and Student Alumni Association, last year’s series (in which Mills was also featured) won the Outstanding Program by District V of the Association for Student Advancement Programs.
Mills joined panelists Jo Throckmorton of Blue Ace Media, Vicki Temple Davison of Bloomington Hardware, Pat Bailey of social butterfly, and Nancy Hiller of Nancy Hiller Design. After a brief discussion, panelists retired to the refreshment room for an hour of direct networking with interested students.
Topics included education (both formal and informal) required to be successful in one’s career, what panelists love about being entrepreneurs, and challenges that most entrepreneurs face—as well as how to overcome them.
