Are You A Trep?

Saturday, Aug. 26th, the South Florida DEN joined 250 teachers on an entrepreneurial field trip with their own children and grandchildren.  The teachers watched hundreds of TREPs in action during this cool day at Wannado City.  The term TREP (enTREPreneur) has been coined to mean, "a 30-year old or younger who owns his/her own business."
