I was inspired by a podcast on Blake Mycoskie. He started and sold four companies by the time he was 30...30! Now he's the founder and President of Tom's shoes, a company that gives a pair of shoes to those in need for every purchase made. I was intrigued by his desire to follow his curiosity and how free he felt to take risks.
If you're anything like me, I want my child to feel the freedom to follow her curiosity. While I feel my child is getting a good education, the education system doesn't appear to support teaching our kids to follow what makes them happy.
Blake is tremendously successful and happy. Don't we all want our kids to find something they love to do?
