Entrepreneurship has been the cornerstone of country. Every time a person has taken the chance to do something or create something on their own and take the risk, usually some level of success happens. Whether that opportunity actually succeeds or not, much is learned for the next challenge ahead. As an avid lover of fitness as well having been a competitive athlete all the way through college, the hard work and challenges to push forward for success is something I always embraced and brought me that similar success.. I try to do a full body workout at least 3-4 times a week and cycle doing a cardio and intense 45 minutes in a class setting. This pushes me and allows the trainer who is yelling at us to motivate that much more. FitClub in Fairfield CT has been my choice of training spots as the trainers are knowledgeable and intense enough to push me as hard as possible. My only suggestion - stretch! Before and after...it will keep your aches and pains to a minimum.

The Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), a 36-year-old, 501c3 nonprofit organization, is the nation’s largest continuously operating program for K-12 student inventors and entrepreneurs.
100% of the proceeds raised by Push For Entrepreneurship are donated to CIC.
CIC’s mission is to teach students creative problem-solving techniques through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurship, by teachers trained in CIC’s programs. CIC programs have been endorsed by CT’s educational leaders as promoting creativity and critical thinking, and have received prestigious recognition, including trips to the White House Science Fairs.
In Connecticut, more than 17,000 K-12 students in nearly 300 schools annually have CIC classroom-based programs.
Students compete in their schools and winners present their inventions at local and district events and at the state wide convention in May.
Selected state winners advance to the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE) at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan, in June.
CIC inventors comprises 50% girls and 26% minority students, with program growth focused in under-served school districts.
CIC inventors pursue entrepreneurship through patenting, investment, and commercialization.
Your donation will be used to provide hundreds of Bridgeport, Norwalk, and New Haven K-12 students the opportunity to participate in a program that will change their lives and our futures.
