Stedman Visits

By  | 

People in the wiregrass were"building" career skills today. An entrepreneurship workshop was held...featuring guest speaker Stedman Graham. The third annual franchise symposium was held to help local residents learn effective strategies for running successful businesses. Graham focused on the idea of defining yourself, explaining that until you know who you are, you can't make positive changes in your life. Graham tours all over the United States in an effort to motivate individuals to start their own businesses. Speaker Stedman Graham said, "I do it because I teach freedom. Freedom to eliminate baggage, freedom to know you can do anything without having labels, and you just have to define yourself." Graham's visit was sponsored by several local busineses including the Alabama Cooperative Extension System's Urban Program and the Wiregrass Museum of Art.
