I often describe myself as an incurable entrepreneur at heart and love sharing videos of this nature with students to force them to consider the possibilities. Jibbitz? Who would have ever guessed other than an aspiring entrepreneur?

The thing that I appreciate the most about this series is the real, down-to-earth approach of each video. There is no hoopla. It is simply a "This is how we did it" statement of entrepreneurial activity. These videos could be used to supplement discussions in the online classroom, as a primer for an entrepreneurial activity associated with a course, etc.

I've used these videos as an outside of class activity wherein the students watch at least 2 of the videos and provide a WATA ("walk away take away") Report for each video.  The WATA Report is a 1-2 page document that summarizes the main points of the video and highlights the most impactful element of the content to the student's own life and experiences.  Students seem to enjoy the first person content and hearing about the entrepreneurial experience from the entrepreneurs themselves.   Key themes include: the entrepeneurial mindset, the courage to leap, the challenge of creating something from nothing, the enjoyment of launching new businesses, etc.

*I am the curator and editor of this video series.

Technical Remarks:

The videos are viewed best when using a high speed connection to the internet.  The videos can be paused and reviewed while watching.
