I recently returned to the Midwest after living in Bangkok, Thailand for the past 3 years. While in Thailand, I taught in Bangkok University's newly formed Entrepreneurship program, teaching Management and Entrepreneurship courses to students from over 50 countries from around the world.
Prior to that I started and successfully grew two manufacturing companies, both of which I developed and then sold to larger firms. The diversity of the demands that you experience as an entrepreneur make teaching this subject challenging, but certainly exciting (something new and different every day), and definitely rewarding, as several of my students in Thailand have gone on to start their own successful businesses using the business plans they developed in my classes.
