It’s great seeing an engaging community providing information that can really help one another. When it comes to business, the right deal is always something to look out for, but how does that apply to an island? Interestingly enough, you see that play out in the film Chief Zabu. While I’ve only watched the trailer, the film looks to be sort of a political/business parody on cashing in big. Allen Garfiled and Zack Norman have an excellent performance as two wacky real estate agents venture to buying an island. With cleverly made troupes, the entire film is a bit outlandish, but nonetheless it looks to be an amusing comedy film. If you're thinking about giving the film a look, maybe give the trailer a watch. The film comes out on streaming platforms August 8th!
I love keeping up with “MBA Mondays” and seeing hard working students acknowledged for their achievements! It is so uplifting, positive, and inspiring to see the business men and women of our future. The hard work and drive displayed on this page makes me think of a business based sci-fi film I recently watched called ‘Empathy, Inc.’! It follows a failed venture capitalist as he invests in a corrupt businessman who introduces clients into the world of VR. I have never seen a film that explores business in such an interesting way and I definitely recommend seeing what business features this film has to offer. It is available to stream on Amazon, let me know what you all think!
hey all :) can you beliiiiieve i'm coming up on 1 year since launching the holiday marshmallow pop-up shop that turned into a whole dang business and changed my life entirely? i can't. i can't one bit.

i still have some tweaks to make on the site, but wanted to let you all know that i'm officially taking pre-orders for holiday gifts on my website. orders placed before 12/8 are guaranteed to ship out that week and arrive in time for festivities. i've got limited-time flavors, cute curated holiday boxes, and you can use code COFC for free shipping on orders over $18.

i hope you'll all keep mine and other cofc-owned businesses in mind this season. every order from a small biz is a step closer to a dream realized.

Awesome page! I love to see pages that showcase their student's accomplishments! As a fellow business student, I always look forward to watching a good movie during one of my study break days. I'd recommend, Empathy, Inc.! This enticing yet educational movie is a tale about an Extreme Virtual Reality company where its mission statement could be deemed not so morally correct. I have to commend the cinematographer, Darin Quan, for the use of dutch angles to intensify the unique and uneasy emotion of the scenes. This movie definitely exceeded my expectations from the actors to the overall production. I highly recommend to check out the trailer which can be found on Youtube and to watch out for the VOD release on September 24th!
If you are looking for inspiration, don't miss this event!!

Good Fortune is an inspiring documentary about Patrón and Paul Mitchell CEO, John Paul DeJoria. DeJoria is a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, and conservationist. DeJoria is a different kind of businessman, in that he practices conscious capitalism and gives back to over 160 charities. I think all business majors would really benefit from this documentary because DeJoria gives really good business tips and talks about his business style, but he also makes it clear that no one has to lose their soul in the business world. If you are interested in learning more, Good Fortune comes out on VOD tomorrow.
