Here is an audio recording of Laszlo (Les) Meszaros founder of MICE, singing a Hungarian song. He says "This song is very emotional, as it expresses the feelings I have of being torn between two countries … my homeland - Hungary, and my home - the United States. My love for each is different, but I love both dearly. No matter where I am I feel as if I’ve left something behind."

I would love to know whether you entered college or not, preferably also what college. It would be a bonus for me if you say something about whether ETP had any influence on your decision. You could send us a testimonial if you have the time and the desire.

Those of you who became seniors and a couple of you who just became juniors, could you ”TALK UP ETP “for your classmates for us? Registration is open on line already

The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It's as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer - Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese's
