How to succeed in business

entrep.jpgMore than 150 Appalachian State University students learned about starting their own business during the Extreme Entrepreneur Tour that visited campus. Adam Witty, pictured, started a business out of his dorm room at age 19. Witty was one of the event speakers who shared stories of their successes and failures. His company, Advantage, is the parent corporation to Advantage Media Group, Advantage Networks, and TicketAdvantage. Witty was one of the speakers at the event. Advantage Media Group’s services include book publishing, editorial services, audio/video production, CD/DVD duplication and replication, marketing materials, publicity and media support, branding and product development. The tour featured presentations by young business owners, many of who started their businesses while in college. (Appalachian photo by University Photographer Mike Rominger)
