Inspiring Young People to Entrepreneurship

Yesterday I again spoke to a crowd of 200 youth, their parents and teachers on entrepreneurship. Our purpose; to highlight the creative powers of each one in the room - to unleash the natural abilities in every individual to create value.

How does one bring out innovation in young and old? Well, yesterday we did an interactive exercise where each one asked four key questions repeatedly; WHY, WHAT, WHO and HOW?

Think about it. If everything you ever did would pass through these gates, little time would ever be wasted again:

  1. WHY identifies mission and purpose
  2. WHAT brings clarity to goals and direction
  3. WHO defines responsiblity and opportunities
  4. HOW (and WHEN) inspires specific action
Always ask questions, preferably following the 3E sequence!

Inspiring Movie "Forever Strong"

Whatever brings out the passion does make a difference. I love passionate people. In fact, I believe passion reveals a persons true identity - the real you.

One movie I'd recommend is "Forever Strong" (2008) depicting a rugby player's entry onto a team that really makes a difference - both on an off the field.

The secret..? Shared greatness! Here's probably one of my favorite scenes when the players are doing the Haka. One to watch, for sure ;-)
