Consultant Teaches at UI

Consultant SCOTT CLARK says in a column that aside from creating and selling several technology-driven businesses, in his spare time he writes books, gives workshops and teaches as an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship at the UNIVERSITY OF IOWA. "A scant 18 months ago, many of my students were still eager to create dot-com companies, having read about the millions raised in venture capital overnight and the soaring value of dot-com stocks," Clark writes. One such person was Lyle Bowlin, from the University of Northern Iowa, who according to the Wall Street Journal raised $90,000 for a book-selling business operated out of his home (www.positively-you.com) competing with Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com." But success came too fast, overwhelming the business and its ability to keep up with orders.
