The DP recently featured this article about Wharton sophomore and “serial entrepreneur” Bradley Foster. Considering he already owns a hotel, restaurant, computer repair company and several other businesses, we’re not sure why he hasn’t yet pulled a Bill Gates and peaced out, Wharton, especially after stating the following:
I could take insurance whatever class at Wharton, or my hotel could just burn and I could learn a really quick lesson about insurance.
