Nick Price Quoted in Wall Street Journal

Business student Nick Price made resolutions to get fit and increase his social media presence, a combination that led to him being quoted in the Wall Street Journal.

It began with a simple idea: Download a fitness app and tweet each time he used it, to document the days he worked out. After a few months, Nick sent a tweet to the company, FitStar, with a before and after photo. FitStar contacted him and asked if he'd be willing to be profiled as one of their success stories. After that, they told him a reporter from the Wall Street Journal would like to interview him for a story.

The commitment to get fit was a 2013 resolution. For 2014, Nick says, "My social media resolution is to [connect with] as many people on LinkedIn as I have on Facebook."

Nick Price served in the U.S. Navy. He is attending Marylhurst University full time, on track to complete his BS in Business & Management with a Certificate in Human Resources in spring 2014. He plans to pursue his MBA at Marylhurst next, and then make a career as a veterans specialist for a Fortune 500 company.
