Business guru Kevin Bloomfield honored by Junior Achievement of Southwest Virginia
ROANOKE, Va. – “I thought I was going to play college basketball,” jokes Kevin Bloomfield, sitting on a stool at the RAMP Building in downtown Roanoke, his “sometimes” office. He said he didn’t have a plan for anything beyond basketball, noting that in hindsight, he had no idea how big college basketball players really are. His path to fortune clicked one day in college, when he heard about the then-new internet browser called Netscape, going public. And within two minutes he dropped a number on me.”At first, Bloomfield declined the offer as he had several others. If you do those three things and all the other things around those three things when you have a chance to be successful,” Bloomfield said.
