newinceptions.com/session35 The current education system is broken. It's hard to deny it. With college professors suggesting that students aren't ready for college, and employers saying that graduates aren't ready for the real world, there's really too much evidence that something has to be done.
For me personally, I did what I was supposed to do. Go to school. Get good grades. Graduate.
What didn't happen for me was the "Get a Good Job" part.
I would say that it's partly my fault. By the time I was finally looking for a job, I wasn't really interested in being another cog in the machine. In fact, I knew that I wanted to work at a startup.
However, most startups that I spoke with seemed like they were fish out of water. They approached entrepreneurship like a job. They didn't have much of a reason why that they were doing it. They just knew that they were good at what they did. Maybe it was because it's what they did before the recession of 2008. Maybe it's because they thought they could make more money on their own.
Whatever the reason was, it didn't seem to be working.
I think a big part of that was that the school system that most of us have grown up with program us to be followers. However, we need new leaders more so than ever. Be it in government or in the private sector. One way to get there currently is to homeschool students. Another way is to be mentored by people that are already leading.
Today's guest, Daniel Postma has done both. Which means he's well on his way to be one of tomorrow's leaders.
In this session, we'll learn all about homeschooling and find out how he was able to acquire the mentorship he's had in his life. We'll see what his time as an of apprentice of Dane Maxwell did for him. And we'll also discuss how he got into the business of medical massage therapy.
If you're interested to know more about homeschooling, experiential learning, or simply need some guidance in what you should do after you graduate, I think you'll get a lot out of this conversation.
