Strategy: Pay attention to the gaps in information, this can often lead to a breakthrough. Dr. Jones noticed schools were teaching information to accomplish a specific annual goal. He feels the traditional education, no matter what sector (private, public or charter) are, not teaching students how to learn. He clearly defined the need and the market with this need and began to serve. Have you defined your market? What is the need you are serving? Who is it that would have this need? How can you connect with them on a regular basis? Define, and redefine the answers to these questions as you begin your journey.
Wisdom: Transform your idea into a goal by developing a strategic plan of action for accomplishment. Get involved with motivational programs and find mentors who have achieved the goals you are looking to accomplish. Take the time to build your reputation and let people know what it is you are up to. Get started as soon as possible and always remember that patience and persistence are a requirement for this journey.
Wish: Dr. Jones is looking forward to creating change for generations. He is currently working on providing round-the-clock automated training to his community and beyond to allow everyone the ability to develop and accomplish a bigger vision.
