BOZEMAN — A blog post by a student enrolled in Montana State University’s Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship was recently featured on the popular Huffington Post website.

Mike Maher’s post, “What I Wish I Knew Before Starting My Business,” was published Aug. 23 in the Huffington Post’s “What’s Working” section. 

“Entrepreneurship is intimidating,” Maher wrote. “Perhaps what drives people crazy is that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all mold of how to be successful in the entrepreneurial realm.”

Maher, who also works as operations manager for the Blackstone LaunchPad at MSU, went on to outline a few tips for entrepreneurial success, including to: focus on solving a real problem, start small before scaling up, learn from one’s predecessors, keep things simple and recognize opportunities. 

Maher, from Los Gatos, California, is a junior majoring in business management. He said he appreciated the opportunity to have his blog post published in a national outlet and is grateful for the many opportunities he has received while at MSU.

“Entrepreneurship has always been an amazing outlet to connect my creativity and passion for building things to something that I could actually monetize. I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunities provided by the Huffington Post, (Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship) and the Blackstone LaunchPad in an effort to share my entrepreneurial journey,” Maher said.
