Back to School

I’m running one of my college talks tomorrow, and it couldn’t be a more exciting time to be doing it.

I love building companies and the day-to-day excitement of business. Finding a niche, conceiving new products, meeting interesting people and making a sale all give me a buzz.

But motivating people is one of the most rewarding parts of entrepreneurship for me.

Although it’s nice to make money, it’s more about building something of value. And there’s no greater reward than helping kids channel their education or seeing the light-bulbs flicker on for those who’ve been turned off by school.

We’ve always been a really entrepreneurial country, and it’s great to be able to play a small part in inspiring the next generation.

So all in all can’t wait. I just hope they give me an easier time than I gave some of my teachers…!
