Nearly every Spigot, Inc. employee contributed a dish, we brought in extra tables and all sat together AND of course we hung for the rest of the day playing games and even going out after!

Spigot, Inc.’s Ben Tucker Inspires Entrepreneurial Students at FGCU Campus

A few weeks ago one of  FGCU’s  Entrepreneurial class came for a tour of Spigot, Inc. and got the opportunity to listen to Ben Tucker, Elina Terenteyva and Shayna Paolucci speak about our company culture, the reasons we’re successful as a company (and individuals) and what it took for us to get here. The students and professor loved it so much that they asked Ben to come to one of the Senior Level classes and speak to students graduating about Spigot, Inc. and advice on how to have a successful future.

He spoke a lot about the “Spigot, Inc. Mentality” and just having the right mentality in general. He talked about the way he thinks about things as a manager, and how it’s not about age or experience – but who’s best for the job. He honed in on not settling or punching a time clock everyday to just have a job.  He explained how the generation we are in; employers like young leaders and that we’re in a generation that doesn’t discriminate. He told the students that he likes when his employees are better than him and he can learn from them, because it makes him a better leader.  Ben stressed that even when people doubt you (which many doubted him) to still follow your gut, because you know what’s best for yourself when others around you don’t always. He told them if you are passionate about something, listen to what people have to say – but trusting yourself is a huge key to success. He spoke about finding a company that will invest in your leadership growth and as you go through your career, finding a company that invests in you and helps you grow.

He opened up about his failures that led to his success and spoke about how failure is okay and part of growing. He explained to them that even most of the leaders in our company have lost large amounts of money for the company taking risks and it’s okay. When mistakes happen, we take our people aside and we say “let’s think about what we can do better next time.”

Overall our visit to FGCU was extremely successful. Ben stressed to the students that our company IS epic, but he isn’t trying to sell the company – he is trying to sell the dream of “don’t sell yourself short.”

Spigot, Inc. loves their relationship with FGCU and the opportunity they give our leaders to inspire their students.  1/4 of our employees graduated from there and we will continue to hire! If you want to be a part of an awesome company with an great mindset, we would love to speak with you!
