http://www.empire.edu/ Coming soon to a classroom near you is Empire's new video series called Frankly Speaking. In these motivating videos, Empire chairman and CEO Frank Schoeneman inspires students to reach their full potential. Each episode features one of Frank's interviews with Empire graduates. If anyone knows how to put your time at Empire to the best use possible, it's these grads. They hope to enlighten students and help them reach their goals of becoming successful stylists and cosmetologists by sharing their own insight from their Empire experience and their post-Empire careers. Interviewees include Daniel and Jessica Wiezorek, who both left successful careers on Wall Street to pursue their true dreams of becoming cosmetologists.

Jessica urges students to take the advice of one of her teachers who once said, "Always go with the most talented person that challenges you and try to learn from them." She says that even though you're making mistakes as a student, you're still constantly learning, and that's something to be proud of.

Matrix Mannequin Mania contest winner and Empire Harrisburg graduate, Tim Findon was also interviewed for an episode of Frankly Speaking. "The key ingredient to making it is hard work," says Findon. "You work seven days a week if you have to." He urges students not to give up on their dreams. "Eventually it will happen, but it takes time. You've just got to stick with it."

Frankly Speaking will be shown in all classrooms across Empire's broad network of 102 schools throughout the country. The series is set to be released later this year.
