On the October 19, 2016 episode of The Opening Bell, Steve turned our attention to Indianapolis where the annual National Future Farmers of America will take place promoting the agriculture industry and displaying an array of over 200 different kind of jobs for young adults. Kristy Meyer talked with Steve about how the FFA started out with a handful of members and now nearly 60,000 new members expected this year. Ariana Pierce also joined Steve to talk about her new book for young adults, “Skip The Party Start A Business“. Her up and down entrepreneurial experience as a 13 year old lead her to look at life differently now as a 25 year old CEO of her own business.
