Entrepreneurs can change the world.

I spend a fair amount of my professional (and sometimes personal) time studying entrepreneurship. I love nothing more than to dive headfirst into what makes entrepreneurs tick, the impact on the economy and communities and what they need to thrive. To me, this is fascinating.

I'm traveling to Alaska next month to give a two-day workshop on entrepreneurship as part of the IEDC's certification curriculum. I'm not wild about Alaska in February, but I couldn't more excited to spend two days fully immersed in this industry.

As I work through my presentations, I intend to kick off the two days with this video on entrepreneurs. It was forwarded to me by a colleague at the Department of Commerce and every time I watch it, it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
