My Backstory & Highlights of "The 4 Essentials" • Live at USC (13 Min Video)

Updated: Jul 12

"We Are All Life Learners!"

In 2012, I published my mini memoir "The 4 Essentials: A Misfit's Journey" featuring life & career lessons from famous mentors (modern & historic). The book was originally titled "The 4 Essentials of Entrepreneurial Thinking: What Successful People Didn't Learn in School" (updated 2016 & 2024). That raised a few eyebrows.

Filmed at USC's #1 Entrepreneur Class, the live talk below highlights my misfit journey & solutions I proposed for tackling a global education dilemma that still exists today.

For more insight on this topic, see my post on "The Education Dilemma: Navigating 5 Rabbit Holes to Academic, Personal & Professional Growth."

Carpe Diem,
