In 2010, Fort Lewis College alumnus Josh Talmon shut down his San Diego real estate business to find a more fulfilling endeavor. “I had all these investment properties and a nice car and a five-year plan, but I was left unfulfilled,” Talmon admits of his real estate career in Phoenix and San Diego. “I kept thinking, ‘is this what my life is going to be about? Making money, doing deals?’ I had no passion for that.”
What Talmon was passionate about, however, was the work of his two friends, Zach Balle and Heenal Rajani, who had formed the nonprofit Hug It Forward in the fall of 2009.

Fort Lewis College Associate Professor of Economics Robert Sonora is spending part of his summer working in Croatia thanks to the Fulbright International Exchange Program. It’s a win-win-win for the people of Croatia, Sonora, and for the future FLC students that find themselves in one of Sonora’s classes.
To earn a Fulbright scholarship is one of the highest academic honors that a faculty member or student can achieve. Only the best of the best are chosen. The experiences and knowledge gained by living and working beyond the borders of the United States through the program can be life-changing, and not just for the Fulbright participants themselves.

Why dream about someday helping people in need when you can make real change right now in Africa?

I'm starting a personal assistant/concierge business with my three sisters, called Saylor and Company. Three of us studied accounting, so we all have a great grasp of business. We also have about 25 years of experience in nannying and personal assistant work between us. We’re focusing on small-event planning. We'll do the whole thing start to finish: grocery shopping, making the food, decorating, all of it.
