University of Washington Commencement Speech 2013

June 20, 2013 - Author: admin

I had the honor of being asked to give the commencement address for the University of Washington’s Foster School of Business undergraduate class this month. As many of you know, the University of Washington is my alma mater and near and dear to my heart. It was a real treat. To prepare for the speech, I spent some time with about 25 of this year’s graduating class. I wanted to know their hopes, dreams, and worries for what’s ahead. After all, these are some difficult times for new college graduates. I must say I was surprised and impressed with the caliber of these students. Most have jobs and all are prepared and ambitious. I expect to see great things from this group of students in the future.

This is not your ordinary commencement speech, so get ready for more than a few surprises. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed giving it. Congratulations to the class of 2013!

The DNA of a Phenomenal Entrepreneur – Part 3

- Author: admin

The final strand in the DNA of a phenomenal entrepreneur is Personality. Personality is the Je Ne Sais Quoi that folks like Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey and most phenomenal entrepreneurs have. It is something that is uniquely theirs, but permeates the style and culture of their companies.  Those that have it, own it and make the most of it.  Those that try to be like everyone else will never have it or understand it.  If you want to be phenomenal, give your company a personality that everyone recognizes.

I hope you have enjoyed this series.
