Josh Owens – Orr Fellow Class of 2007

Josh finds that the most successful people in his life are those “who are willing to bet on themselves, and who are willing to take chances.” Therefore, he says his best advice to graduating college seniors and new Fellows would be that “it’s hard to get your first job wrong with the right attitude and drive.”

“Entrepreneurship can also be about creating a lifestyle business that lets you follow your heart, achieve balance, and work with a small group of people you love. That’s the path I’ve chosen, and I’ve never been sorry for a second.”

Bo Dietrick – Orr Fellow Class of 2011

Bo found Orr Fellowship to be a great transition from college life to the adult world from a mental and social standpoint. In the Fellowship, Bo said, “no one is going to tell you what to do, but if you are proactive, you have the opportunity to take on valuable side projects and build an extensive network in Indianapolis. It’s a great environment in which to communicate with your peers and chip in on all different types of endeavors.”
