Now Accepting CSUF Consulting Clients for Spring

This is a CSUF Consulting team that won the Small Business Institute's National Project of the Year Competition in the Undergraduate Division. Good job team!

This is a CSUF Consulting team that won the Small Business Institute’s National Project of the Year Competition in the Undergraduate Division. Good job team!

Every Monday we publish a weekly report to CSUF Entrepreneurship Insiders. In today’s report we announce the launch our Spring 2017 client recruitment efforts. The CSUF Consulting program is an integral part of the education of our students because it enables them to put into action the lessons they have learned with real businesses. The CSUF Consulting program is also of huge benefit to companies that participate because they receive innovative strategies on ways to make their businesses’ stronger from the reports our students create.

If you are interested in becoming a client of the CSUF Consulting program please get in touch with our Client Project Specialist, Charlesetta Medina, at (657) 278-8243.

What follows is the weekly CSUF Entrepreneurship Insider report from CSUF Center for Entrepreneurship and CSUF Startup Incubator Director John Bradley Jackson.

Every semester we welcome a diverse group of businesses into the CSUF Consulting program and we are now accepting applications for the Spring 2017 semester. For a relatively small fee, these businesses, our clients, have the opportunity to work with a student team over the course of the semester to develop a comprehensive action plan that tackles a specific part of their business.

All businesses can benefit from a fresh perspective and that is exactly what our student teams provide. Armed with the latest business knowledge from multiple disciplines and the creativity that is evident in so many of our students the CSUF Consulting program has helped all kinds of businesses ranging from startups to Hilton Hotels.

The Hilton Hotels project is one that I am particularly proud of. When clients initially contact us, many of them automatically think that marketing projects have the highest ROI, which isn’t always the case. Our team that worked with Hilton Hotels made this abundantly clear by developing a comprehensive energy sustainability plan that has saved the hotel a lot of money.

And that story has been repeated many times over the years with our teams developing plans to help clients in a wide range of areas. I’m sure every business can improve and that one of our teams can help accomplish that goal.

While we are completing current client engagements from the Fall Semester, the Center for Entrepreneurship looks forward to working with the students, clients, mentors, and professors next semester. We have a very strong community full of innovative people and I am confident that we will help make many more businesses stronger next semester and for years to come!

If you are interested in becoming a client of this program please contact Client Project Specialist, Charlesetta Medina, at (657) 278-8243 and she can walk you through the process in more detail. We look forward to working with you!

Sincerely,

John Bradley Jackson

Chuck Su ’11 is definitely one of the members of the CSUF Entrepreneurship community that we are thankful for! Read about how his company, Family Fun Fitness, is Reinventing Family Time by clicking on this photo.

As longtime CSUF Entrepreneurship Insiders know, we have a very long list of Success Stories about members from our community. The simple reason for this is that our community is made up of people who are creative and are always pushing their boundaries further out; trying new things, meeting new people, launching new businesses.

We are extremely thankful for our community of entrepreneurs and professionals and that is what Director Jackson’s weekly CSUF Entrepreneurship Insider update is all about.

We hope that you have a happy Thanksgiving with your friends and family!

Thanksgiving is this Thursday and that has got me thinking about all of the people that I am thankful for. There is my family, of course, because they give my life purpose and meaning. But I’m also thankful for you and everyone else who is a part of the CSUF Entrepreneurship community. Your creativity and compassion inspire me.

One inspiring member of our community is Chuck Su ’11. He was a student in my classes and I was always certain that he would do great things as an entrepreneur and as a human being. What I didn’t know was that he would combine those things in a business called Family Fun Fitness.

We recently published an article about how Chuck’s Family Fun Fitness is Reinventing Family Time with obstacle courses that have families working together to make it to the finish line. Seeing the happy families cross the finish line together is a joy to behold. I’m ecstatic that Chuck has found his passion as an entrepreneur and I hope that Family Fun Fitness continues to bring families together for years to come!

I’m eternally grateful to be a part of Chuck’s life and that our growing community has so many supportive and optimistic people in it like Chuck.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,

John Bradley Jackson

Reinventing Family Time – CSUF Entrepreneurship Success Story

chuck-suAs many entrepreneurs know, creating a successful business is hard work and Cal State Fullerton alumni Chuck Su ’11’s experience has been no different. While working a second job at night, Chuck works diligently on his own business during the day; a sacrifice he and his loved ones make with grace.

As a student, Chuck exhibited many of the hallmarks of an entrepreneur: creativity, tenacity, and a big heart. It was the last of these attributes that led him to his idea for a business at a time when he was least expecting it: during a reverse triathlon.

“The light bulb idea struck me at the end of my niece’s race. The reverse triathlon did not have a team race; however, I was allowed to participate with my 4-year-old niece in her race bracket. In the end, I realized the fun was running the course as a family. We had a great time and made everlasting memories,” said Chuck.

For Chuck, the happiness that he felt participating with his niece was only the beginning in what would soon become the idea that led to the creation of Family Fun Fitness.

Wanting to replicate the happiness and fun that he experienced with his niece at the reverse triathlon, Chuck began to formulate a business plan that revolved around a new concept of family time and fitness.

After finalizing the main points of his business plan, Chuck met with his mentors at Cal State Fullerton’s Center for Entrepreneurship and sought advice from his previous mentors. In his search for advice the staff not only helped him solidify his business plan, but also provided Chuck with access to valuable resources and connections.

One of these connections was retired engineer and CSUF Entrepreneurship mentor Bill Purpura. Chuck went to him to see if his plan was truly worth investing in as a business.

“Bill Purpura was the man who I thought would give me the best advice. He is an introvert entrepreneur with extensive knowledge in engineering and business development. He doesn’t sugar coat things and has your best interest at heart. When I met with him I was nervous but prepared. After reviewing my idea, he believed that I had a kernel of an idea. This made my developed idea into an actual creation,” said Chuck.

With a solid plan and a seemingly endless amount of passion Chuck began to build his own business with the mission of bringing together family time and exercise. These two activities form the main pillars of Family Fun Fitness.

“I wanted Family Fun Fitness to be designed for adults and kids to overcome [obstacles] together so that they can have fun while participating in healthy fitness based activities,“ said Chuck.

One of the issues that Chuck wants to address with Family Fun Fitness is that kids have become too attached to technology to really grasp the importance of a healthy lifestyle. In order to grab the attention of kids, Chuck and his partners, primarily his girlfriend Suzanne Nguyen, have created a story about a magical kingdom that the kids could experience while they participate in Family Fun Fitness’ obstacle courses.

“We wanted to have children see the characters we created and feel a connection with them regardless of things like ethnicity, body type, or skin color. From this we created our protagonist: Sky the Snowman. His magical cape not only keeps him from melting, but could change junk food into healthy treats. As kids progress through the land of Imaginaria they would get to know the heroes and villains of the story and help Sky get his cape back from the evil queen who stole it,” said Chuck.

The dedication and artistic passion behind the creation of the characters and setting proved instrumental in making the obstacle course a success as the business hosted its first race on August 7th at Cordillera Elementary.

Due to the overwhelming support received from the school that hosted the event and local communities Family Fun Fitness is now sponsored by an investor that plans to have the business host four events per month. This success is the first step in the expansion and growth of Family Fun Fitness.

When looking back at the journey Chuck has gone through in order to make Family Fun Fitness into a reality, he believes that there are several things that all entrepreneurs should remember when starting their businesses for the first time.

“Creating your own business will take a lot of time and money and is something in which you must be prepared to deal with. And while there are going to be bad days, you must learn to take the good with the bad because at the end of the day your passion and dedication will play a huge role in creating your business. Ultimately you should have a strong support system from your significant other, family, friends, and mentors,” said Chuck.

With an investor already backing his business, Chuck and the members of Family Fun Fitness are excited to see what the future has in store for them as they continue to redefine the meaning of spending family time together.

Competition among businesses is more fierce today than ever before and the reason why is data. Every business, no matter how large or small, has access to more data than any business from just a few short years ago. Data on customers, economic indicators, investing opportunities, and everything else you can possibly think of is only growing and the intelligent business leader is leveraging this knowledge explosion.
How can you, as an entrepreneur, small business owner, or leader of a corporation, harness this great power? In this talk at the CSUF Startup Incubator, you will learn what Big Data is, how you can access it, and the best practices for mining all this data to help your business thrive.

CLICK HERE TO RESERVE YOUR SEAT AT THIS EVENT ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16 @ 6:00PM

Believe it or not, we already have most of the skills we need to create our passion-driven business. So why aren’t most people pursuing their potentially profitable ideas? They are intimidated by the small gap in their skill set. In this immediately actionable talk, Damon shares how to easily traverse that gap and explains the three crucial strengths every successful entrepreneur possesses. It is an inspiring talk for both potential entrepreneurs and ambitious upstarts.

If you want to get the most out of your life as possible then you owe it to yourself to attend this talk.

CSUF Course Recommendation for non-Business Majors Interested in Starting their own Business

student-at-workNot every entrepreneur is a business major; far from it actually. But the reality is that without some basic entrepreneurial skills it is extremely difficult to successfully launch a business. What should a CSUF student who is not majoring in business but wants to start a company do?

Those intrepid students should take BUAD 310 Starting and Managing a Professional Practice/Small Business. This course is designed to help these students develop the skills needed to go from business concept to launch. Over the course of the semester, students in this class are guided through the process of developing an actionable business plan by the professor, Jeff Longshaw, and a mentor who has a wealth of experience as an entrepreneur or professional.

Recently, Center for Entrepreneurship Director John Bradley Jackson gave an interview about the importance of this class to non-business majors at Cal State Fullerton:

Professor John Bradley Jackson, director of the Center of Entrepreneurship at California State University’s Mihaylo College of Business and Economics, said he noticed a trend of recent graduates working as independent consultants instead of heading right into entry-level jobs.

“The transition for the college graduate to the workforce isn’t what it used to be,” Jackson said, but added that “entrepreneurship is a way of thinking—trying to make the planet better through small changes—and that type of mindset is perfect for the gig economy.”

From Physics to Fashion to Photography

The entrepreneurship class at California State University at [sic] Fullerton challenges students to come up with business plans, assigns them mentors and divides them into teams to develop business models. Near the end of the class, students present their models to a panel of investors who give them feedback on their work.

Jackson said that students from a diverse array of majors bring a host of helpful skills and talents to the class. The class’ success stories included a master’s level physics student who used her science background as well as what she learned in the entrepreneurship class to open a pop-up toy store that encourages customers to experiment with educational toys— including, of course, science toys—before committing to a purchase.

The student discussed in that quote is Iris Dorne who recently launched Rad Toy Store where she sells STEM-themed toys to kids. Here is an excellent write up of Iris.

Students in this class will learn about:

  • How to Craft a Business Concept
  • How to Develop a Business Plan
  • Legal Issues
  • Marketing a Small Business
  • Finance
  • Tax Issues
  • Managing Risk

Many students who have taken this class have had great things to say about the immersive learning experience offered by this class.

If you are looking for a class that can open up a brand new horizon for your career then you should seriously consider taking BUAD 310 during the upcoming semester!
