One of my greatest sources of joy is being able to get into the classroom and interact with groups of smart, ambitious, idealistic people. I love the energy, the passion and creativity that awesome academic institutions like Georgetown foster among their students.
I was invited by my good friend, Professor Jeff Reid, head of Georgetown University’s Entrepreneurship Initiative at the McDonough School of Business to speak to his MBA class today about the “Power of Entrepreneurship.” Jeff is a national leader and pioneer in Entrepreneurship education, having built one of the world’s top entrepreneurship centers at UNC; and now he’s building an amazing entrepreneurship program at Georgetown.
Jeff (@hoyapreneur) tweeted “Identify a real painful problem and solve it“pic.twitter.com/W9iUVk8t when I talked about how and why I started Unitel/CyberRep. (Short version: My co-founders and I worked in sales and we HATED making cold calls. We figured that if we found making cold calls very PAINFUL, then many others would too, so why not start up a business that specialized in making cold calls? That’s what we did!)

Great news for Scandal fans….Kerry Washington and cast have been given the green light for season two. I’m so relieved!
ABC has been cautious with the Shonda Rhimes political soap. But in the wake of its reasonably steady performance on Thursdays this fall, Scandal is now getting an extra nine episodes and its first full season. (Scandal is averaging 8.1 million viewers and a 2.5 in adults 18-49, plus a hearty 45 percent DVR boost).

Details inside…
Natina and Kurupt share a son, 10-year-old Tren and Kurupt released this statement yesterday:
