Rookie Republic is beyond proud to have Laura Cheek on board as a Rookie For Life Blogger. She is an ambitious and aspiring entrepreneur and attends CUNY Baruch College in Manhattan. Laura has professional experience in entrepreneurship, marketing, social media marketing, business planning and leadership.
What do you do?
My name is Laura Cheek. I am a friend, a daughter, a sister, a student and a mother. I attend Baruch College and will be graduating May 2015 with a BBA in International Business.
What makes you a Rookie?
I’m a Rookie because I find reward in doing things for myself yet collaboratively, which is synonymous with entrepreneurship. I enjoy building and watching things grow that I have created with my own hands.
What will you be blogging about?
I will be blogging for Rookie Republic about entrepreneurship, of course! But I will be adding a flavorful twist of my life experiences.
Why is Rookie Republic important?
Rookie Republic stands for all things entrepreneurial. That’s why I decided to join. There’s plenty of “start-up,” “workshops,” “lectures” but nothing quite like Rookie. Entrepreneurship is not strategic, it’s not planned. It’s in your blood. Rookie Republic gets it boiling!
What are you ambitions for the next 5 years?
For the next 5 years I hope to pursue everything that makes me happy. I hope to practice two languages that I have taken up, see the world and launch my business.
What is the best advice you could give a Rookie?
My best advice for a Rookie is to never under estimate the power of energies. It is only once you practice living for today, and channeling your aspirations into your everyday, can you experience the power of your own thoughts.
I am honored and excited to be sharing my opinions, stories and experiences with all of you. I suggest feedback, commentary and dialogue, as that’s the basis of entrepreneurship or as I put it, “the power of people.” Please feel free to reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. xo
