George Foreman was once known as a king of the ring. Now, the boxing legend is recognized as a champion entrepreneur in many ventures including the success of the George Foreman Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine.
Foreman will be the featured guest at the University of Houston's 5th Annual Veterans Entrepreneurship Seminar on April 7. He and other speakers will offer insight and advice to aspiring entrepreneurs in the Houston Room of UH's University Center (Entrance 1 off Cullen Boulevard). This event is free and open to the public. Foreman will sign copies of his new book "Knockout Entrepreneur" following his presenation. Copies of the book will be available at the UH Bookstore.
This event is presented by UH's Veterans Services Office, the Bush Cares Project, Houston Think Tank, the UH student chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators and UH's Veterans Collegiate Society.
"I think entrepreneurship is the one thing America represents," Foreman said. "There is no better way to make a living in America than owning your own business. If you can sell, you can be successful."
