"You are all smart enough to start your own business."

This afternoon we learned from Rick Gering, co-founder of Eastbay. Mr. Gering taught us all about business competition, catalog design, predicting product sales and so much more. We even saw a size 22 shoe! Students had a chance to design their own catalog page and to compare their predictions with actual 4M (pretend) class sales.


Students had prepared some really interesting questions for his visit. Great work 4M! Thank you again Mr. Gering!
