Wall Street Journal Small Talk Columnist Talks Entrepreneurship 101

By John Jantsch

When I first started my business over 20 years ago, I was a bit of an odd duck for my age. At the time, business ownership was equated to a form of joblessness.

Times have changed and I visited with Kelly Spors, Small Talk columnist for The Wall Street Journal and StarupJournal.com about the raging trend of campus entrepreneurs and college entrepreneurial programs. You can hear our interview on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast.
