Now I Know - Gaining Insight from Entrepreneurs

Now I Know is a series of videos produced by Sprinkle Lab that features discussions with entrepreneurs concerning their successes, failures, and lessons learned. I've watched several videos at this point and found them to be quite informative. I also think the videos could be a great resource for students, especially those involved in career and technical education.

The embedded video below features features Linda Avey, founder of 23 and Me, talking about educating yourself in today's world.

All of the videos are three minutes or less and some of the notable interviews include Craig Newmark (founder of Craigslist) discussing his thoughts on when to lead and when to get out of the way and Halle Tecco (founder of RockHealth) gives her perspective on perseverance.

What about having your students create something similar by interviewing members of your local industry committees or by interviewing each other about their classroom experiences?

  1. This is great. I always like hearing life experiences of success or lessons learned. When you know a person has "walked the talk", it makes it easier to believe and try for yourself.
