Both breakfast and lunch will be provided. Dress code is casual. Come prepared to represent GBALI well and be classy hosts and hostesses to our guests.

“Careers & Entrepreneurship: Learning How to Use Your Gifts to Pursue your Passions”

Everyone wants to own a business or establish a successful career, but what does that mean? At this workshop you will discuss the specific steps that need to be taken along the road to success. Learn how careers breakdown into daily activities, the difference between a people-focused career vs. an information-focused career, innovating to address market needs, business principals, and other information. This interactive and engaging program will help you to frame your college decisions based on the pursuit of your passions.

Saturday, February 7, 2015: GBALI Investment Portfolio Challenge

Are you ready… Or are you really ready? We will be starting the inaugural GBALI Investment Portfolio Challenge. You all will be divided into teams of GBALI portfolio managers. In preparation, come prepared to make investment suggestions to your group. Do some advance research and ask questions of the directors or Rock.

Each team will be allocated $10,000 of virtual money to invest. The team whose portfolio is worth the most on Friday, June 26, 2015 at 4:01PM will be the winning team. When thinking about your investment suggestions, keep in mind that four (4) months is not a long time in which to invest.

There is very little wealth created that does not include stock investments. You don’t need to be an expert but you need to be involved. This is the time in your lives to start learning how to be educated investors. It is no where near as scary as news and media may lead you to believe…. And we’ll prove it to you.

Saturday, January 31, 2015: Show Your School or Team Spirit

For this Saturday, 1/31/15, you all are encouraged wear, don, sport or rock some paraphernalia  (‘nalia) of your actual school, favorite college/pro team or jersey/uniform for a team on which you compete.
