YAACs Discuss Starting a Business

In October, the chapter's Young AFCEANs hosted a Business Over Breakfast seminar featuring guest speaker Teresa Macalolooy, CEO of Macalogic, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Montgomery, Alabama. Macalolooy discussed three things to consider if you want to start your own business. The first thing she talked about was knowing what you want to do. She emphasized that it is best if you can align what you know with what people want. The second thing you should do is plan. Macalolooy mentioned that she sets aside time every Sunday to plan her week. She said you should consider the largest issue you have and then consider every item linked to that all the way down the line. A good plan will help you envision the path to achieve your goals. Third, Macalolooy told the YAACs you need to ask. Ask people you respect what their thoughts are, what else might be useful. Then you need to be willing to let them help you, even when you don't think it will be helpful. Finally she reminded the audience to maintain their work-life balance. She encouraged attendees not to sacrifice their personal life for their professional one. Macalolooy recommended setting aside dedicated time to spend with the people who are important to you and getting enough rest. Following the presentation, Macalolooy conducted a brief question and answer session, and audience members networked.
