Seton Hill University Hosts Farrell Entrepreneurial Leadership Series
Seton Hill University’s Farrell Entrepreneurial Leadership Series presented “Entrepreneurial Opportunities in the Health Care Industry” on March 23, 2010. Daniel J. Wukich, founder and CEO of Quest Healthcare Development, Inc., served as the keynote speaker.
Wukich shared several stories about how he began his career as an entrepreneur and many experiences he faced in the workforce.
“The stories I share with you are stories of my own experiences and will conclude with tips on how you can become a multi-millionaire,” said Wukich.
Wukich shared how his passion to become an entrepreneur began at an early age.
“I became an entrepreneur as a child. I began my first paper route when I was 11 years old,” said Wukich, who is a native of Braddock, Pa.
Wukich discussed his life as a college student, the jobs he held to work his way through college, his career at Alcoa Aluminum Company, and the founding of Quest Healthcare Development. Wukich was very engaged with the audience as he shared his stories and posed questions to the audience.
“I only went to college because I was laid off from the railroad. My mother kept nagging me to go to college and I just wanted to work. Then, when I was laid off, I decided to go to college,” said Wukich, who earned his Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from the University of Pittsburgh.
Wukich concluded the presentation by sharing his views on the current healthcare bill and encouraged the audience to read and study the contents of the bill.
“I advise each and every one of you to take time out to read over the healthcare bill. By reading it, you may discover certain things that can help you become an entrepreneur in the healthcare industry,” said Wukich.
