During GEW

Before Michael Dijak graduated from Papillion La Vista High School in 2009 he had already started his own business. On weekends Dijak would tape weddings and was very involved with the community. He also worked as a consultant for the city of Papillion and drafted plans for two years. Dijak proposed ideas to the city and they would decide if they approved or not. After high school Michael attended Truman State University I Missouri and planned to major in political science and communication. While in college Dijak and a partner bought a landscaping business, Trumascape, and Michael served as executive vice president. They went out to get investors and three agreed to invest, which helped Michael and his partner manage to expand the business to commercial and real estate development. Michael left soon after because it was stressful and was graduating college. After college he moved back to Omaha, Nebraska and opened up his own franchise of Farm Bureau Financial Services. His daily job is to help clients plan for the future and be financially stable. He currently has ten employees and is very successful for being open less than a year.
