An Awesome Experience

10 days ago, I stood in front of 800 people packed in an auditorium, delivering a speaking engagement that I called “The 10 Aha! Moments of Entrepreneurship”. Most of the attendees were students, from grade 7 through grade 12, at The Pingry School, a private preparatory school in New Jersey. I wanted to give them 10 things to think about from the world of entrepreneurship.

After the keynote, a couple of dozen students moved up close to the stage for a one-hour Q&A session about anything on their minds. It was during this conversation that I got a feel for the interest and motivations that many of the students share. By the time I left, after touring the school and hearing about some of their ongoing projects, I couldn’t help but feel energized by what I’d seen and heard.

I went there to inspire them, and they in turn inspired me. What an awesome experience!
