When Wonder podcast host Kalika Yap sat down to speak with entrepreneur and startup studio founder Mike Jones, he shared his passion for helping others and how the value of learning from others has taken time to appreciate.
We asked Miranda Naiman, an entrepreneur in the field of talent acquisition in Tanzania, to listen to the Wonder podcast episode and share her learnings.
First, the basics: What was the episode about?
Mike Jones shares his entrepreneurial journey that emanates from childhood in fundraising and sales, running a nationally-distributed magazine in high school and eventually setting up a consulting firm in college that was sold. Through the episode we gain insight into how he went back into full time employment and the knowledge that later impacted his current organization, Science. We learn about the importance of access to mentorship, and the mindset of successful entrepreneurs.
