"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

"The entrepreneurial mystique? It's not magic; it's not mysterious, & it has nothing to do with the genes. It's a discipline, & like any discipline, it can be learned."
~ Peter F Drucker;

[The foregoing quote is my inspiration for creating & conceptualising a 12-month, 52-module 'Business School for Kids & Teens'. It will be one of my new projects in Indonesia, as the curriculum design involves the holding of 3 outdoor adventure camps - to inculcate risk-taking, team-building & leadership - of 3 day's duration each, to coincide with a breakdown of 3 semesters for the entire program.

Indonesia, with its vast & beautiful landscapes, has all the natural facilities for such camp venues.

Classroom learning will be combined with a multi- as well as an inter-disciplinary content immersion, in conjunction with project-based actvities, individual projects & group discussions, field-trips to businesses, interviews of successful entrepeneurs, portfolio assessment, sales bazaar or trade show, plus live presentations involving business plan pitches to a real-world venture capitalist panel.

The curriculum is even designed to include a career exploration module, to allow the kid or teen participants to consider a safer, alternative route - in order to gain valuable professional working experience - prior to embarking on an entrepreneurial initiative.

It will be a great opportunity to infuse young people with the entrepreneurial mindset. The entrepreneurs of tomorrow are in our schools today!]
