Lessons for Entrepreneurial Success That Should Be Taught in High School
By Brian Scudamore, an EO Vancouver member and founder of O2E Brands
There is no shortage of high school and college dropouts who transformed themselves into business success stories – Richard Branson, Hootsuite’s Ryan Holmes, or Ikea’s Ingvar Kamprad, to name a few.
The fact that these titans of industry made it, despite their refusal to finish school, says to me that classrooms aren’t set up for future entrepreneurs. As a fellow dropout, I have often thought that if curriculum had included lessons in entrepreneurship I might have stuck it out.
