Luke Tucker and Eric Hormann – Students In Free Enterprise SIFE at HAWAII PACIFIC UNIVERSITY and CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY at CHICO

In March 2006, Greater Good Radio did a joint project with the SIFE team at Hawaii Pacific University and California State University, Chico where they won the regional competition, which secures their spot at the national competition to be held in May.

Luke Tucker, president of Hawaii Pacific University SIFE, says that the organization aims to educate and help people through free enterprise by small business assistance and financing different entrepreneurial and educational projects.

“As a student I believe there is no better resource than Greater Good Radio. Greater Good Radio benefits not only those interested in business but those who are interested in living life to the fullest. Listening to Greater Good Radio is an incredible eye-opener and educational tool and allows you to have a glimpse into the lives of successful individuals. It is empowering, enlightening, and a tool to achieve success.”

Greater Good Radio interviewed six active and budding members of the organization and the business community.

Eric Hormann, president of CSU SIFE says, “Greater Good Radio is an excellent resource for the budding young entrepreneur. Being one myself I find the quality of the programming to be more engaging than anything like it out there. I have gotten a lot of useful information on how helping my community in the long run will help your business. Hearing it from the people that make the decisions has definitely given me a better perspective on how to go about these decisions. Also having the chance to meet these individuals has given me great confidence in the over all future in entrepreneurial ventures.”
