SASE OSU: James Sun Event Recap Through the Eyes of the Students

SASE OSU was able to invite, fundraise, and bring James Sun to OSU to inspire students on “How to Write Your Own Success Story.” James was a Finalist on The Apprentice and is an extremely successful investor, entrepreneur, and tv/movie producer.  Over 200 students, young professionals, entrepreneurs, and corporate managers attended the event.  This blog summarizes the key points of the event through the eyes of the students and how they were inspired by the experience.

Jeff. S – Junior – Mechanical Engineering – Northwestern U.

“Throughout college I’ve been a typical Asian engineering student. Follow my parent’s lead by 1) studying hard to get good grades, and 2) finding a nice job. Fine by me -sure, it meant learning some time management and pulling all nighters but my work would pay off in terms of GPA. I met friends in various extracurricular groups and had a good time on weekends. After 3 years at Northwestern, I was settling into a routine of work, sleep and play.

I’m not kind of person that enjoys going to speaker events. Nor have I ever watched The Apprentice. However, James made me realize that I was missing an opportunity. Rather than choosing an easy path, like studying all the time I could pull of something more. If James could work full time, graduate with good grades and run an immensely profitable fund at the same time, surely I could accomplish more than a high GPA. In short, there are a few things he said that changed my perspective on a dime.

These are obvious points, but perhaps never implemented well.

  • Goals – Don’t just set the usual long term ones, you’ll just forget. Decide on something small to accomplish every single day.
  • Never, ever think “no” to yourself. It roadblocks entrepreneurs and leaders all the time.
  • Take risks. Why be the unhappy middle-aged corporate worker that holds onto a 6-figure salary only for security? Find a passion to pursue early on so you don’t get stuck in a rut later in life.”

Yuange Y. – Senior – Finance – Ohio State U.

“James Sun has truly been an inspiration for us all. Whether you’re in the realm of business, or just a college student with ideas, James gives you the motivation to follow your goals. One of the most important concepts from this meeting include taking risks. James talked about taking risks as an entrepreneur at a start-up company. Upon seeing the hardship he had to faced, I felt his struggles really diluted my personal issues. As the President of the undergraduate investment club, one issue that I constantly face is getting more people involved. James offered me this advice: “If you are passionate about something, all you need to do is find 2 people who are just as passionate. For each of those 2 people, they need to find 2 more people who share the same passions.” His statement turned something unfeasible to something that can be accomplished before I graduate. James’ appearance will always be remembered and his words will always be embodied.”

Jon L. – Senior – Chemical Engineering – Ohio State U.

“The James Sun event was very inspiring to me.  James was an eloquent speaker and maintained a very persuasive and intriguing way of life.  Hearing about his experience as an entrepreneur provided important information about how to successfully achieve one’s goals.  I think he catalyzed the drive for many people in the audience to constantly identify and/or create opportunities to succeed, thus achieving the goal of the event labeled ‘How to write your own success story’.

Two major concepts stuck with me from this event.  The first involves pursuing opportunity every day.  It is so easy just to sit back and complete what you are supposed to every day, then return home from work and relax.  Setting daily goals versus quarterly goals allows for a leverage (or domino) effect over time, and ultimately allows for one to activate his or her inner drive to achieve success.  This leads into the second concept that James Sun has left with me, and that is to ‘Act as if..’.  Try this concept out if you have not already, I promise you will experience a change in lifestyle unlike anything you have experienced before.”

SASE held its first ever National Collegiate Conference Call on April 5th to provide students with the opportunity to update the National Board members with the great work that has gone on and to connect student leaders with each other.  The call was a great success and the Board members were impressed with all of the effort that has gone on and encourages each school to continue to come up with new and creative ways to provide useful and relevant programs for APA’s on campus.

Some examples of recent campus activity:

  • OSU – James Sun Event – Chapter raised over $6000 to bring in James Sun, highly successful entrepreneur and finalist on the Apprentice
  • Cornell – Dinner with the Professors event – highly successful event to connect students with key professors on campus in an informal setting.
  • UT – “Who Moved My Cheese” event with P&G to discuss how to deal with change in one’s life.
  • UC – Upcoming recruiting/info night with GE APA recruiters
  • MIT – Great kickoff meeting with Eric Liu, Director of P&G Gillette R&D, on APA’s in the Workforce and upcoming meeting with SASE Co-Founder Tom Fernandez on Leadership.

Keep up the great work everyone!

SASE National Team / P&G at MAASU Spring Conference

The SASE National Team was able to attend the MAASU Spring Conference on behalf of P&G.  While the purpose of the trip was to recruit talented APA’s for P&G, the team was able to spread the word about SASE at the conference.

MAASU stands for the Midwest Asian American Student Union (MAASU) and is a 501C3 non-proft organization that “recognizes the needs of the APIA community by assisting schools with the establishment of APIA organizations, promoting leadership among students, addressing education needs and rights of the APIA community and developing a channel of communication among APIA student organizations in the Midwest.”

This year, MAASU was held at the Ohio State University and had over 700 student participants from over 18 schools.  Schools traveled via charter bus from as far away as Oklahoma State University (over 15 hours!).  The theme this year was “Make it Count,” based off of the 2010 census.  The subthemes were Voice. Vision. Identity. and each workshop fit into one of these three subthemes.

The team was able to interact with students through the career fair and two workshops.  The two workshops were on “Leveraging Your Strengths and Identity to Maximize Your Academic and Career Potential” and “Effectively Projecting Your Voice Through Your Resume.”

Leveraging Your Strengths Workshop video can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10100154353685895&ref=mf

Overall, the team had a great time working with the students at MAASU and were thoroughly impressed with the amount of time, effort, and leadership that went into MAASU.  The team would like to thank everyone who was part of the process and put their hard effort into making the conference happen.

On February 26, 2010, we had a huge social at MOMO’s, a bubble tea cafe which has games, karaoke, bowling, and pool. Since all our board members are part of other Asian associations, we decided to throw a big party with all the other major Asian associations as a final’s week pre-game, or an after-midterm break, which ever you like. We ended up with a big turn out, probably because of the FREE karaoke 😀 Lots of fun and LOTS of pictures! check them out on our facebook page.

On January 21, 2009, SASE held an informational meeting with GE Aviation. GE recruiters came to our school to tell our members of the co-op and internship opportunities at General Electric Aviation. Resumes were accepted, and of course free drinks and pizza. 🙂 We had over 100 students show up to listen to the GE recruiter’s informational session, and it was a great success.
