The Math Behind a Successful Business

We hosted Green Mountain Credit Union CEO, Bob Lake, on Wednesday, March 11th. Bob and Andrew made initial contact related to the Life Skills unit on financial literacy and the stock market. And with Jonnie's general math class doing a start-your-own business unit, we though having Bob come in now was timely. He conveyed the basic message that success in business comes down to math, math, math, math and math. He walked through some of the math he must use in his daily business life, as well as the details he looks for in a business plan when funding someone or lending them money. He asked lots of questions of the students about their business plans, their assumptions, their marketing plans, etc. It became a very dynamic meeting, and he walked away very impressed with the budding business acumen inside Endeavour.
