Those above words were posted by one of the students who recently attended The Economics of Entrepreneurship Seminar held in Austin by The Foundation for Economic Education. Derek Magill and I had the privilege of sharing various insights and experiences at that seminar about adopting a value-creation mindset.
A few weeks ago, we had to chance to do a fireside chat at The Economics of Business Success seminar in New Hampshire.
We cover topics including:
- Dropping out of college and how to build a life for yourself without a degree.
- Practical strategies for thinking about early career opportunities entrepreneurially.
- The value creation mindset vs the preparation mindset.
- What entrepreneurship looks like (from the perspective of a 23 year old)
- Why you don’t need to be an expert to get started and how to become an expert quickly.
- Why your degree should be the least interesting part about you.
Everything pulls from real case studies, conversations with business owners, and the young people we advise.
We do some Q/A at the end with the audience where we give them actionable advice for getting started building their career before they’ve finished college.
It’s good stuff.
There’s almost no excuse today for waiting until you’ve passed a test or gotten approval via a third party credential.
