What does your day look like if you’re a full-time student and full-time CEO of a startup?

Welcome to Part 1 in the 2-part “Starting Up in School” Series. In this episode, we’re going to experience a day in the life, hour by hour, of Antonio DiMeglio, the founder and CEO of Seastraws so you can decide if this is a career you can see yourself doing! We’ll learn how Antonio balances his full-time course load at NYU and his daily grind as an entrepreneur. It can be done folks! Let’s get right into the day.

In Part 1 we went through hour by hour a day in Antonio’s life as a Student Entrepreneur. In this episode, we’ll take you through Antonio’s career journey so you know what skills and experience are necessary to land a job as a Founder and CEO at such a young age. Antonio allowed himself to be uncomfortable with daunting but rewarding career opportunities and overcame a lot of imposter syndrome to get to where he is today with SeaStraws.
