I am a College Pro Window Cleaning franchisee in Andover-Anoka, MN.
With the knowledge I've learned through College Pro and our Entrepreneurship class at the University of St. Thomas we started a business to help children with cancer. It is a one-for-one program selling hats. For every hat we sell, we give one to a child battling cancer.
To date, we have sold and donated over 1,200 hats across the United States.
If you've got the means, help us spread the word.
I used a lot of what I learned through College Pro to help start this business and it has thrived in the five months we have been operating so far.
