PINKY COLE: Just like life, that elevator is going to break down some times. It's going to trip on the way to the top. On your elevator to success, let me be your maintenance man. I have partnered with VARO bank to provide every single graduate in this audience with a new LLC and a path to entrepreneurship.

[CHEERS]

That was a lifetime opportunity, not just for them, but for me to be able to go back to my Alma mater and give them something where they could start their pathway to entrepreneurship. A lot of them were very excited because building your LLC is not just a piece of paper. It's really creating generational wealth for you and your family if you have a good idea.

You graduated in the middle of a pandemic. Now, tell me what it is that you can't do again. It's going to be hard, but the power is already in you. You have already changed the trajectory of a generation by sitting in these seats. I wanted them to have something that would resonate with their future, especially if they didn't have a plan.

So it was a beautiful feeling and more than half of them have already taken me up on the offer and have already gotten registered. And I'm excited to see the rest of them get registered so that they can jump start their pathway as well. When they tell you no, no don't mean never. Use it as an opportunity to restructure and reorganize. Find the aspiration in the losses. When they won't give you a seat at the table, build your own damn table.
