Former Spartan basketball player Lauren Aitch joins Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon and Spartans Athletic Director Mark Hollis for a conversation about how being a Spartan athlete has impacted her thriving entrepreneurial spirit.
She says all the discipline required to succeed as a Spartan athlete carries over into the business world.
Aitch also talks about how her international experiences have enlightened her. And she says former Spartans making a go of it in the highly-competitive fashion industry, Willis & Walker, are role model for her.
She advises anyone desiring to compete athletically at the Big Ten level to “be flexible,” and advises current athletes to take full advantage of the resources available to help them succeed beyond their athletic careers.
