Grant Pinkerton graduated from UT with a BA in Rhetoric and Writing in 2014, then put his rhetorical skills to work: he moved to Houston, opened Pinkerton's Barbecue, successfully marketed his brand, and hit $2 million in revenue in 9 months. Pinkerton's rhetorical skills proved so beneficial to him that the Forbes article mistakenly presumes his degree from UT was in marketing. 

More about Pinkerton's work can be read about on Forbes' website.
