Story 3: Life-changing

Many alumni of BestPrep’s program’s describe their experience as “life-changing”. For Nicole Middendorf, BestPrep’s Minnesota Business Venture camp set her on a completely different path than what she was planning. Originally interested in studying journalism in college, her experience at camp and playing The Stock Market Game in high school influenced her decision to study international business and marketing.

Now a Financial Advisor with her own firm, Prosperwell Financial, Nicole continues to stay involved with BestPrep. She sites the biggest impact of her BestPrep experience being introduced to a business professional who mentored her at camp and continued to stay in content through college and career. Nicole now gives back by sharing her story and giving advice to students as a volunteer and serving on the BestPrep Board of Directors.
