ECPI Education Builds on Entrepreneurial Spirit

It was just over a month before Myisha Brooks was set to cross the stage and accept her Bachelors of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) from ECPI in Virginia Beach that she was celebrating another event that was a direct result of her studies. On April 13 Myisha hosted a grand opening of Bizzy Beez Drop-In Childcare.

Myisha previously obtained her Associates in Biomedical degree from ECPI in 2006. After a successful career in Biomedical, she decided to return to ECPI to obtain her BSBA degree. It was during one of her business classes that she decided that she could be an entrepreneur and gained the confidence based on what she learned at ECPI.

She conducted market research to determine her location off of Virginia Beach Boulevard. It was through her marketing classes that she learned to develop business and marketing plans as well as Six Sigma which teaches business skills to prevent waste within a company. “My ECPI education has empowered me with so much information, in addition to networking opportunities and the support of teachers who are happy to share ideas,” said Myisha.

Myisha has hired her first four employees and her goal is to have 30 children enrolled for summer camp.
