PARAMUS, N.J. — Stuart Aust, president and CEO of Bug Doctor, recently addressed students of the business department at Taylor University, Upland, Ind.

Aust shared with students what it takes to be an entrepreneur. The invitation came from Ben Sells, Ph.D., vice president for University Advancement, and the event took place on Nov. 9, at Ayres Memorial Hall, also known as “The Court Room.”  Sells regularly invites leaders throughout the year from all aspects of the business world to address the students.

Founded in 1846, Taylor University is an interdenominational liberal arts university of evangelical faith.  The student body consists of 1,913 traditional undergraduates, 101 graduates and 238 online students that study in an intentional Christian community where they are challenged to integrate their faith and learning in an environment of relentless spiritual and intellectual discovery.

Aust lectured on the founding of Bug Doctor Termite & Pest Control/Bird Doctor Nationwide 21 years ago, as well as the development of the different divisions over time and how it all related to the theme “Business, Defining Moments and Identifying One Degree of Change.”  He discussed with them the lessons he has learned throughout the years in business and passed a number of these tips on to the students.  Stuart also spoke about family and faith and tying it all together.

Aust’s son, Daniel, is a senior at Taylor University.  Daniel also works in a part time capacity as business development coordinator for Bug Doctor Termite & Pest Control/Bird Doctor Nationwide.
