Presented by: Harold T. Epps G'84
CEO PRWT Serices Inc.
The Law and Business Center for Advancing Entrepreneurship hosted Harold Epps G'84 on November 9. Epps, president and CEO of PRWT Services, Inc., spoke at the Blake Law Center on "What's In Your Dash". He discussed how quickly time and career can go by and the importance of the choices we make as we balance our professional and personal lives.
Epps said that "as you live your life I would hope that you would look at what it is you want as part of your dash and make decisions accordingly and remember no one else can do it for you and do not surround yourself with people who are going to be a drag on your dash." He also urged people to ask themselves: "how can you take a situation and turn it into an advantage for yourself?"
