  • Great job with this John! It is great to see the importance you are placing on passion and really helping direct students to prioritize and define their knowledge and skill sets. An ’entrepreneurship’ mentality is important now more than ever whether they are starting a business or not. I found this 20 Trends for 2020 report from Intuit a good read as well. Check out #14 regarding Free Agent Employment. http://about.intuit.com/futureofsmallbusiness/ It will really drive home the point that people need to find their passions and feel comfortable with their knowledge and skill sets because there will be no more ladders.
