A rather interesting documentary about the whole game of entrepreneurship. The trailer is exceptionally well made, but I can't comment on the real thing. I'll definitely pick up a copy when it's out.

For some reason, it feels awfully similar to The Secret. That could be a bad thing :blush:

edit: Hey cool, YouTube embedded automatically! I love this forum :p

Speaking of the secret... one of the "teachers" in the Secret is an entreprenuer named John Assaraf. He owns the ReMax franchise for the entire state of Indiana, and has built several multi million dollar businesses.

Of all the teachers in the secret, he's the one I most respect. He owns a company called OneCoach that may be worth checking out.

Good stuff ... entrepreneurism is what is responsible for all human evolution and yet, 2000 years later, most of our schools still do not teach it. Sad ...


One quote stood out for me, something like "you put your butt in a corner, and you'd be surprised at what you can do"

nice video. I agree with you MJ, it is sad that our school system (I am a current student myself) has no classes to encourage entrepreneurism. High school would be a great time to introduce kids to the idea and continue it in college as well.

It is not only sad that the school system does not promote it... it is even worse than that... go try to sell something in class and see yourself getting suspended or expelled from the school.

Entreprenuer Magazine puts out an annual list of the top College/University Entreprenuer academic programs. Ball State University, for example, has a highly rated entreprenuership program within their business school. Many universities have embraced the importance of having such a curriculum. Unfortunately our public school system doesn't see the value, but we're now seeing these type of programs in some of the charter schools in our area.

Awesome, I love starting out my day with a documentary to inspire me. The chinese guy's story really hit me.
Just when I think I'm grateful, I realize I can be even more grateful for what I have, his story really put things into perspective for me.
