3 Keys to Being A Dope Fellow
Creating a successful team culture at the ACT House starts with an individual commitment to honor and follow these 3 major keys as a Fellow.
Adapt to Change
The ACT House isn’t a classroom and business isn’t a daycare center. There will be constant change and challenges that will require flexibility and maturity.
Interest in Entrepreneurship
It doesn’t matter what you're learning. It matters what you do with it and how you use your knowledge to identify problems and seek to develop solutions.
Desire to Grow
A commitment to grow and improve is imperative for true success in anything that you choose to do. Everyday is an opportunity to do better and be better.
