Dr. Carolyn Edwards inspired us as we talked about entrepreneurship and the ability to inspire the dreams in the children and adults around us.
Here are some highlights from the talk:
What led you from being a college professor to being a powerful entrepreneur?
Dr. E: After finding people misusing financial aide and being unable to come to school, and others went to class but never developed a winning attitude. Many students just never learned the life skills they needed at home. So I started writing children’s books.
My books tell the story about little Jeremiah to inspire them to succeed in life. They don’t have to be a professional athlete or a race car driver to be successful. Everyone can be what they love.
I don’t want to live in a vanilla society. If we allow children to bring a gift and talent in the world we will have so much more diversity and love and passion. Truly the world will be a better place.
Let’s help some people not wait until they are retired to pursue the passion in their life.
We want to allow people to be comfortable in their own skin. Life is so short so lets at least enjoy the journey.
