Description

This episode is an interview that I gave to a local radio station on their Saturday show called ‘Beyond the Business’. The show is about local entrepreneurs in Charleston, where they come from, what they are doing and what influenced them to do what they do today.

The hosts asked some good questions and we talked about how it was growing up in Michigan, my education and the work experience that I had prior to starting Praxis. Also we discussed how Praxis came into existence, some things which I would change if I were launching Praxis today, and the Are-You-Willing-To-Fail test that tells you whether you are ready to dive into entrepreneurial waters.

  • I’ve started to notice more and more private education companies being founded that offer alternatives to the established education system. So far I know of the following: The UnCollege Gap Year: “A 12-month skills-building regimen designed to equip young adults to succeed in the 21st century.” Praxis: “An intensive 10-month program for entrepreneurial young people who want real-world career experience and the best of online education all in one.” Exosphere‘s Entrepreneurship Boot Camps: “An 8-week program at Exosphere’s headquarters in Chile for people who are committed to setting their lives on a new course, combining technical skill acquisition, real business practice, and deep philosophical and intellectual reflection.” I myself work at Exosphere and we’re noticing how more and more people become interested in these alternative programs. What other options are out there that I’m missing?
