My #SmealSoMoney Commencement Speech

Honored to have been invited back to my alma mater Penn State to celebrate with the Class of 2017 Smeal College of Business students.

All the joys of being a naive but determined 20-something. You can catch the full commencement address here. Or click here to read more on the Penn State News website.
