Do You Have What It Takes to Be an Creative Entrepreneur?
During the four years that I was a high-school teacher, I saw three types of students.
1. Those going to Harvard
2. Those not going to Harvard
3. Those not going to Harvard, but the Harvard students would end up working for them
What made the third group different (the Entrepreneurs), and how can you be like them?
They were not afraid to fall, and if they did, they knew how to fall because they had fallen many times before, and they knew it only hurt for a little while.
They had empathy, the kind you get from the quote, “You never really understand a person . . . until you climb into their skin and walk around in it.” from To Kill a Mockingbird.
They asked questions incessantly about EVERYTHING until I thought their heads would explode — they were human sponges.
They were creative and funny which was a direct result of all their questions because they could connect and associate using their head full of diverse ideas — they were squeezing their sponges.
With their breadth of ideas, they knew how to teach, lead and motivate, and they could ask a person to go to hell and back, and that person would be happy to be on their way.
