Build Leadership Experience with Boat Donations

Students who are looking to go into management or executive positions generally need to have years of leadership experience and it is never too early to start. You could organize a donation drive at your school, even coordinating the donations of large items like car and boat donations. Building your business resume early with leadership positions could be important to your development.
