I bumped into this video (and the one I’m posting tomorrow too) at the Kaufman Foundation.
Until a few months ago, the only thing I really knew about them was that what I heard at the end of NPR broadcasts. They’ve been a sponsor for many years. The Kauffman Foundation is often referred to as the world’s largest foundation devoted to entrepreneurship.
I love it. A foundation devoted to entrepreneurship!
To my way of thinking there’s nothing more exciting, more enlightening, more patriotic and more freeing than being in business to provide a good service in exchange for value. A good, ethical business is the original do-gooder organization. But with money comes power and power is to be watched like a hawk. It corrupts. The Kaufman Foundation is about turning out more entrepreneurs – like you and me – each year to grow the American economy and get it back on track.
I’m a believer.
These two videos are exceptionally entertaining – and short. The first deals with that elusive “secret sauce” that makes a business spectacular. And it asks the question, “Why can’t all businesses be spectacularly successful?”
Watch this one and tell me what you think.
