Hello, more than likely you arrived here by the Hawaiian Shirt Guy's recommendation from a meeting, seminar, or speaking engagement or maybe you were referred here. Regardless, we thank you for being an entrepreneur as you are the life blood of your economy, your family, and many others who are associated with you. Bill Johns has always been an entrepreneur in one way or another. His first business was a paper (water coloring pieces) that he distributed on his street at age 6. Bill had competition in an afternoon paper so he replaced his neighbors' papers with his water coloring pieces/papers. Bill went out of business three days later after neighbors figured out was happening and informed his parents. Bill's next venture at age 7 was collecting bottles from the local construction sites and taking them to the grocery store for bottle deposit refunds. All those nickels and dimes added up over a $150 but plateaued once the neighborhood was built out. Fast forward throughout the decades, Bill has been fortunate to hold almost every role in the entrepreneur / new venture / start up value chains and have trained and educated thousands of innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, etc. on all aspects of entrepreneurship. With that being said, that is why Bill created Case Competition University (Case Comp U) as many aspiring and seasoned entrepreneurs ask him often to give them reference points and other resources. In short, this section (directly found through www.CaseCompU.com) will become the ultimate resources for entrepreneurs. And why the name of Case Comp U? Simply, many entrepreneur students participate in "case competitions" for experience and seed funding, but in general their institution is clueless when it comes to entrepreneurship training and mentorship. Bluewater Ventures can obviously help in that department and is doing so with this strategic initiative at Case Competition University. Sink or swim my fellow future Bluewater Pirates! - HSG-76

Leadership and Character Counts!
Chances are your will become successful in your entrepreneurial endeavors. The key is to never give up and know how to get up when you are knocked down over, over, and over again in life. When you become successful, remember your roots and hard work. Always imagine your grandparents and elementary teachers are watching you. I state this as you don't want to become total jerks such as Zuckerberg and Jobs did in becoming the poster children of narcissism and rudeness. I find nothing admirable with these people's values.
You will go farther and live happier by being kind, considerate, and thankful for every opportunity and resource you have in your favor. Don't screw this up by being a douchebag. I have met plenty of great multimillionaires and a few billionaires in my life to know that goodness and leadership counts. Please take this tip to heart during your journey in life. Have a HarmoniousLife! - HSG-76
