"I Left Corporate Life 

To Start a Dream Job." 

Rob Lewis, CEO, Lewis Station Winery

Why would someone leave a high profile job with a comfortable income to chase a dream?  

Meet Rob Lewis, a former high level executive for Wisconsin Vision. Rob left corporate life and is risking it all to follow a dream job of owning his own winery.

How is it all working out? What unexpected challenges were faced along the way? What does the future look like? 

Join us for a morning of entrepreneurial stamina, hope and challenges.

Something VERY special is taking place at Milwaukee Lutheran High School. Young adults are being exposed to entrepreneurial business ideas, concepts and the free enterprise system. Former Ozaukee County Prosecutor Shannon Whitworth is now teaching these concepts as part of the school curriculum. Learn more about it and how you can help.
