After considerable demand from young people and parents of young people (primarily homeschoolers and unschoolers) not quite ready for the full, year-long Praxis experience, we’re now offering a 60 day course for teens.
Praxis Education Director TK Coleman guides you through this intensive two-month experience as you learn to adopt mindsets and habits conducive to the entrepreneurial life. This course is awesome.
Entrepreneurship is a mindset. It requires deep, philosophical thinking. It requires ridiculous levels of commitment and work ethic. It requires genuine self-knowledge and self-confidence. It requires big, crazy ideas. This course is designed to help young people begin the journey.
I want to emphasize that this isn’t something that will be successfully accomplished as a casual daily dalliance. It requires more than just consuming information. It’s full of activities and ways to engage the real world and put knowledge to the test. You can’t learn to ride a bike by reading about it. You can’t learn to be an entrepreneur sitting back in your chair.
From the course intro,
“Information is only one small aspect of a good education. Anyone with an internet connection can find tons of information – it’s the easiest thing to find in today’s world.
So if you want to set yourself apart from the crowd, the key element is learning how to think about information critically, creatively, and practically. This course will help you do all three of those things by giving you daily challenges, exercises, and questions designed to help you engage the materials at a high level.
Don’t limit yourself to just being a reader or a listener. There’s no value in scanning your eyes over the words on a page just to say “I finished the article.” Learning isn’t about impressing other people or chasing after rewards. It’s about opening your mind, unlocking your potential, challenging yourself to think outside the box, and figuring out ways to use information to create value.”
One of my favorite sayings is, Agere sequitur credere. It’s Latin for, “Action follows belief.” Entrepreneurship is about action, but a precondition to action is belief. Belief in the opportunity around you. Belief in your vision of something better. Belief in your ability to execute on it. Belief and the actions that flow from it are not inborn qualities. You can train yourself to see things differently, to habituate creativity and productivity, and to act on what you discover.
Are you ready?
