00:01:06,510

sport yeah how you doing Lori how is everything I’m very well how are you I’m
doing well as well no complaints excellent well thank you so much for taking the time this morning yeah thank you for actually your interest and you know wanting to learn more and know more about the World Education Foundation

6
00:01:23,820

well certainly you have an impressive organization with a number of initiatives I am looking forward to delving into in just a moment but marques you’ve gone from football to philanthropy and I’d love for us to roll the clock back just a little bit more share with us a story of how it is you once saw the future before you decided to you know begin even football what was it that back in high school if we look

7
00:01:49,320

at your high school yearbook what would we see them saying you know most likely
to do what what was it that you saw the future is being back then um you know actually growing up I was always kind of engaged with academics as well as sports you know I think that was a big focus in our family my sister was kind of my hero growing up still is today and she really had a particular way of looking at studying and actually just giving her all so you know even though I didn’t know the details and what I do in the

8
00:02:26,189
future I knew whatever that I would be involved in you know I would just really want to put my a hundred percent in actually give my best and ultimately work harder than anybody that was surrounding me you know doing the same things so it was really a focus in high school to really keep my my ideas as broad as possible but then also be able to structure a lifestyle where I knew

9
00:02:56,579
that hard work determination focus could

69
00:03:01,319 –> 00:03:06,269
get me really positive results and I

70
00:03:04,680 –> 00:03:08,340
really saw that firsthand through my

71
00:03:06,269 –> 00:03:12,079
sister she ended up winning a gold medal

72
00:03:08,340 –> 00:03:15,090
in the Olympics as well as being a

73
00:03:12,079 –> 00:03:17,609
biochemist major at UCLA and that really

74
00:03:15,090 –> 00:03:19,680
kind of set the foundation from when I

75
00:03:17,609 –> 00:03:21,659
was in high school to really achieve and

76
00:03:19,680 –> 00:03:28,680
I knew that if I put in the work then I

77
00:03:21,659 –> 00:03:30,479
could ultimately achieve my goals and as

78
00:03:28,680 –> 00:03:32,489
much research as I’ve done at this point

79
00:03:30,479 –> 00:03:34,739
mortgage I can’t believe I didn’t know

80
00:03:32,489 –> 00:03:37,049
anything about your sister whatsoever

81
00:03:34,739 –> 00:03:39,419
that’s an impressive story and I love

82
00:03:37,049 –> 00:03:40,859
that she was your your focal point and

83
00:03:39,419 –> 00:03:43,979
you’re sure I’ll feel like that’s

84
00:03:40,859 –> 00:03:46,349
inspiring and wonderful to share that so

85
00:03:43,979 –> 00:03:48,629
you knew that you would be you know in

86
00:03:46,349 –> 00:03:51,599
the academic space even though there was

87
00:03:48,629 –> 00:03:53,699
sports involved but what was it that

88
00:03:51,599 –> 00:03:56,280
began the travels what were some of the

89
00:03:53,699 –> 00:03:58,889
first steps that you took once you

90
00:03:56,280 –> 00:04:00,599
finish school and and decided it was

91
00:03:58,889 –> 00:04:04,590
time to work for yourself and build out

92
00:04:00,599 –> 00:04:06,569
of business yeah so I really had the

93
00:04:04,590 –> 00:04:10,079
opportunity for my first international

94
00:04:06,569 –> 00:04:13,470
travel when I was at UCLA with athletes

95
00:04:10,079 –> 00:04:16,259
in action but before that just playing

96
00:04:13,470 –> 00:04:18,269
sports at a really high level on whether

97
00:04:16,259 –> 00:04:21,120
it be football basketball running track

98
00:04:18,269 –> 00:04:23,639
I was able to involve myself and

99
00:04:21,120 –> 00:04:25,680
actually travel a lot around the United

100
00:04:23,639 –> 00:04:27,540
States and I remember in high school

101
00:04:25,680 –> 00:04:29,370
that we went to Pennsylvania we

102
00:04:27,540 –> 00:04:30,930
the Idaho go to New York we went to

103
00:04:29,370 –> 00:04:33,780
Philadelphia we went to all these

104
00:04:30,930 –> 00:04:36,110
different places to run track I went

105
00:04:33,780 –> 00:04:39,450
down to Florida North Carolina to to

106
00:04:36,110 –> 00:04:43,020
actually play football and basketball so

107
00:04:39,450 –> 00:04:45,330
like I always had a desire and kind of

108
00:04:43,020 –> 00:04:46,940
an inclination to travel but my first

109
00:04:45,330 –> 00:04:49,110
international travel was with

110
00:04:46,940 –> 00:04:52,310
organization called athletes in action

111
00:04:49,110 –> 00:04:54,990
that I was involved with at UCLA and

112
00:04:52,310 –> 00:04:58,370
ultimately we went across borders our

113
00:04:54,990 –> 00:05:01,440
first trip was actually to Lagos Nigeria

114
00:04:58,370 –> 00:05:04,640
and then after that we actually went to

115
00:05:01,440 –> 00:05:07,980
Kota voix which is the ivory coast and

116
00:05:04,640 –> 00:05:10,380
during that three and a half week period

117
00:05:07,980 –> 00:05:13,260
we were able to actually deliver the

118
00:05:10,380 –> 00:05:21,000
game of american football as well as do

119
00:05:13,260 –> 00:05:22,680
some very practical visual work with the

120
00:05:21,000 –> 00:05:27,030
students that we were actually working

121
00:05:22,680 –> 00:05:29,220
with so ultimately you know that was

122
00:05:27,030 –> 00:05:31,350
when the travels actually came about and

123
00:05:29,220 –> 00:05:33,090
that’s when I actually took flight and I

124
00:05:31,350 –> 00:05:36,330
think that’s when the seed was actually

125
00:05:33,090 –> 00:05:38,090
planning for the rest of my travels you

126
00:05:36,330 –> 00:05:40,710
know when I got the plane it was really

127
00:05:38,090 –> 00:05:43,200
the beautiful most beautiful sunset that

128
00:05:40,710 –> 00:05:44,850
I had ever seen and I think at that time

129
00:05:43,200 –> 00:05:46,970
you know I was looking at the

130
00:05:44,850 –> 00:05:48,780
surroundings and I just saw two

131
00:05:46,970 –> 00:05:51,630
gentlemen actually walking down the

132
00:05:48,780 –> 00:05:53,280
street holding hands and smiling and it

133
00:05:51,630 –> 00:05:55,920
put everything into perspective for me

134
00:05:53,280 –> 00:05:58,290
it really opened up my eyes that the

135
00:05:55,920 –> 00:06:00,630
world is a big place but then also it’s

136
00:05:58,290 –> 00:06:03,990
a very small place and I wanted to

137
00:06:00,630 –> 00:06:06,810
actually be able to utilize my time and

138
00:06:03,990 –> 00:06:08,550
my talent and actually to create better

139
00:06:06,810 –> 00:06:14,850
living situations and better human

140
00:06:08,550 –> 00:06:18,330
experiences for people like that what

141
00:06:14,850 –> 00:06:21,720
did you feel the most difficult part

142
00:06:18,330 –> 00:06:24,780
when that moment hitch after the Sun

143
00:06:21,720 –> 00:06:27,000
person and so forth what did you feel

144
00:06:24,780 –> 00:06:29,280
was the most difficult steps that you

145
00:06:27,000 –> 00:06:32,730
had to take at that point to begin

146
00:06:29,280 –> 00:06:34,370
building out the foundation yeah well

147
00:06:32,730 –> 00:06:36,720
the thing was is that you know within

148
00:06:34,370 –> 00:06:40,380
University and I was doing very well you

149
00:06:36,720 –> 00:06:41,490
know playing at UCLA so I knew that that

150
00:06:40,380 –> 00:06:44,729
was kind of the first

151
00:06:41,490 –> 00:06:47,849
and foremost focus that I should have

152
00:06:44,729 –> 00:06:50,220
and I really loved American football I

153
00:06:47,849 –> 00:06:53,039
just love playing I love the competition

154
00:06:50,220 –> 00:06:55,259
I love the way that it had you exert

155
00:06:53,039 –> 00:06:57,240
your mind as well as your body and it

156
00:06:55,259 –> 00:07:00,389
was just like a very comprehensive type

157
00:06:57,240 –> 00:07:01,860
of activity for me but you know the

158
00:07:00,389 –> 00:07:03,840
biggest challenge yet on at that time

159
00:07:01,860 –> 00:07:05,639
was that I was so focused on playing

160
00:07:03,840 –> 00:07:08,460
football and actually achieving my goals

161
00:07:05,639 –> 00:07:10,889
there that I couldn’t really work

162
00:07:08,460 –> 00:07:12,690
through creating you know anything

163
00:07:10,889 –> 00:07:15,030
outside of that I knew once I could

164
00:07:12,690 –> 00:07:17,639
actually achieve the goals and make it

165
00:07:15,030 –> 00:07:19,770
to the NFL and actually succeed in the

166
00:07:17,639 –> 00:07:21,060
NFL you know maybe I could start looking

167
00:07:19,770 –> 00:07:23,130
at it from there so I think the biggest

168
00:07:21,060 –> 00:07:27,569
challenge was just the timing effort was

169
00:07:23,130 –> 00:07:29,340
was not right at the time that’s an

170
00:07:27,569 –> 00:07:32,220
interest I think that’s the first time

171
00:07:29,340 –> 00:07:34,349
I’ve heard that it was more timing than

172
00:07:32,220 –> 00:07:36,990
anything else that was really you know

173
00:07:34,349 –> 00:07:39,930
one of the difficult pieces and that’s

174
00:07:36,990 –> 00:07:41,069
an important piece for a lot of

175
00:07:39,930 –> 00:07:43,280
entrepreneurs this year because

176
00:07:41,069 –> 00:07:45,449
sometimes your journey doesn’t

177
00:07:43,280 –> 00:07:48,419
necessarily meet up at the time frame

178
00:07:45,449 –> 00:07:51,060
that you were initially thinking and you

179
00:07:48,419 –> 00:07:53,009
have to allow it to unfold in the manner

180
00:07:51,060 –> 00:07:56,039
that it’s going to be able to unfold

181
00:07:53,009 –> 00:08:00,080
when it’s best for you so I think that’s

182
00:07:56,039 –> 00:08:00,080
that’s a great piece marques thank you

183
00:08:00,919 –> 00:08:06,210
you know I mean as an entrepreneur you

184
00:08:03,630 –> 00:08:07,860
know it’s really that timing piece is so

185
00:08:06,210 –> 00:08:10,050
important you know because we’re always

186
00:08:07,860 –> 00:08:12,330
you know no matter what kind of trials

187
00:08:10,050 –> 00:08:13,680
and tribulations or scenarios we find

188
00:08:12,330 –> 00:08:15,479
ourselves in we’re always learning

189
00:08:13,680 –> 00:08:17,400
something we’re always taking something

190
00:08:15,479 –> 00:08:19,740
from something in order to actually

191
00:08:17,400 –> 00:08:21,090
create something and I think all of the

192
00:08:19,740 –> 00:08:23,219
lessons that I learned while I was

193
00:08:21,090 –> 00:08:25,979
actually playing football were actually

194
00:08:23,219 –> 00:08:28,199
helped me to manifest what I wanted to

195
00:08:25,979 –> 00:08:30,030
do with the Reeve Foundation so it was

196
00:08:28,199 –> 00:08:31,500
kind of a grooming process that I didn’t

197
00:08:30,030 –> 00:08:34,020
know that was actually happening it at

198
00:08:31,500 –> 00:08:35,579
the time but it was under way things

199
00:08:34,020 –> 00:08:37,409
were in motion and then finally when it

200
00:08:35,579 –> 00:08:41,209
was time to manifest the wii foundation

201
00:08:37,409 –> 00:08:44,750
I had those tools already in my shed oh

202
00:08:41,209 –> 00:08:47,250
come along with this I’ll foundation

203
00:08:44,750 –> 00:08:49,699
initiatives that you have right now I

204
00:08:47,250 –> 00:08:52,709
know that you have the American football

205
00:08:49,699 –> 00:08:53,940
you know and and so tell us a little bit

206
00:08:52,709 –> 00:08:56,750
about what the we

207
00:08:53,940 –> 00:08:58,950
foundation is and how it’s going about

208
00:08:56,750 –> 00:09:01,740
implementing the initiatives that you

209
00:08:58,950 –> 00:09:03,230
have going on at the moment so the world

210
00:09:01,740 –> 00:09:06,380
education foundation is a

211
00:09:03,230 –> 00:09:09,420
california-based nonprofit organization

212
00:09:06,380 –> 00:09:11,820
501c3 but we really consider ourselves

213
00:09:09,420 –> 00:09:13,890
to be a solution based organization

214
00:09:11,820 –> 00:09:15,930
where we’re really trying to bridge the

215
00:09:13,890 –> 00:09:18,420
gap between academic knowledge and

216
00:09:15,930 –> 00:09:22,050
implementation you know what I’ve been

217
00:09:18,420 –> 00:09:24,630
working really hard to overcome is that

218
00:09:22,050 –> 00:09:26,940
sometimes professors phd’s even students

219
00:09:24,630 –> 00:09:28,410
come up with these most brilliant

220
00:09:26,940 –> 00:09:29,970
solutions to some of the world’s most

221
00:09:28,410 –> 00:09:32,940
pressing problems but that information

222
00:09:29,970 –> 00:09:35,340
sometimes stays in the academic space so

223
00:09:32,940 –> 00:09:37,440
how do we harness that knowledge that

224
00:09:35,340 –> 00:09:39,780
has been built across borders throughout

225
00:09:37,440 –> 00:09:43,500
these knowledge specific and mobilized

226
00:09:39,780 –> 00:09:45,620
that knowledge in order to approach some

227
00:09:43,500 –> 00:09:49,290
solutions in some of the most vulnerable

228
00:09:45,620 –> 00:09:50,730
communities around the world and you

229
00:09:49,290 –> 00:09:52,860
know the first project that the World

230
00:09:50,730 –> 00:09:55,830
Education Foundation actually got

231
00:09:52,860 –> 00:09:57,780
involved with was a malaria project and

232
00:09:55,830 –> 00:09:59,870
it came kind of serendipitously while I

233
00:09:57,780 –> 00:10:02,520
was traveling through South America and

234
00:09:59,870 –> 00:10:04,950
I was having a conversation in the

235
00:10:02,520 –> 00:10:07,230
shared cab with a Swiss OBGYN and she

236
00:10:04,950 –> 00:10:08,700
started talking about health initiatives

237
00:10:07,230 –> 00:10:10,350
and she put me in contact with a

238
00:10:08,700 –> 00:10:14,430
gentleman was doing a food production

239
00:10:10,350 –> 00:10:15,720
program in the dr congo and from there i

240
00:10:14,430 –> 00:10:17,820
asked him you know what the most

241
00:10:15,720 –> 00:10:20,340
pressing issues were and malaria

242
00:10:17,820 –> 00:10:22,590
actually came up so i went back to my

243
00:10:20,340 –> 00:10:23,760
alma mater UCLA and i hired a couple of

244
00:10:22,590 –> 00:10:25,470
interns from the school of public

245
00:10:23,760 –> 00:10:27,920
affairs and we came up with a program

246
00:10:25,470 –> 00:10:31,050
after we cross-reference with the wh 0

247
00:10:27,920 –> 00:10:33,480
to actually help rural farmers transport

248
00:10:31,050 –> 00:10:35,130
a queen ironbark now queen iron is the

249
00:10:33,480 –> 00:10:37,440
same properties that are in tonic water

250
00:10:35,130 –> 00:10:40,050
and then another references is that the

251
00:10:37,440 –> 00:10:42,960
brits actually drank gin and tonics when

252
00:10:40,050 –> 00:10:46,530
they were occupying india in order to

253
00:10:42,960 –> 00:10:47,610
thwart off the malaria virus so having a

254
00:10:46,530 –> 00:10:50,970
structure to where we could actually

255
00:10:47,610 –> 00:10:52,740
help create livelihoods dude this

256
00:10:50,970 –> 00:10:54,600
malaria project was really our first

257
00:10:52,740 –> 00:10:56,970
approach to actually creating something

258
00:10:54,600 –> 00:11:01,110
substantial in the development world

259
00:10:56,970 –> 00:11:03,120
since 2011 we’ve been able to actually

260
00:11:01,110 –> 00:11:05,600
create about a hundred and ten jobs and

261
00:11:03,120 –> 00:11:07,750
about 400,000 treatments for malaria and

262
00:11:05,600 –> 00:11:10,420
the way that I saw this

263
00:11:07,750 –> 00:11:14,020
program manifest itself I really like

264
00:11:10,420 –> 00:11:17,820
the way that it had a input that could

265
00:11:14,020 –> 00:11:21,190
ultimately create new livelihoods

266
00:11:17,820 –> 00:11:23,650
businesses structures but then also the

267
00:11:21,190 –> 00:11:25,990
output was very socially intact they

268
00:11:23,650 –> 00:11:28,420
actually do it directly solved a problem

269
00:11:25,990 –> 00:11:31,090
that was going on in this community and

270
00:11:28,420 –> 00:11:35,620
there was opportunity to scale up that

271
00:11:31,090 –> 00:11:37,920
actual initiative and from there that

272
00:11:35,620 –> 00:11:40,990
actually got me interested you know in

273
00:11:37,920 –> 00:11:43,030
working around the east of Africa seeing

274
00:11:40,990 –> 00:11:45,490
exactly what their technology capacity

275
00:11:43,030 –> 00:11:47,290
was seeing what type of research that

276
00:11:45,490 –> 00:11:48,790
they have done in different areas in

277
00:11:47,290 –> 00:11:50,680
different industries and the next

278
00:11:48,790 –> 00:11:55,270
project that we actually came across was

279
00:11:50,680 –> 00:11:57,070
a biodiesel project and that is surfaced

280
00:11:55,270 –> 00:11:58,480
around and I’m not saying that biodiesel

281
00:11:57,070 –> 00:12:01,950
should be scaled up but for this

282
00:11:58,480 –> 00:12:04,390
particular part of the east of the Congo

283
00:12:01,950 –> 00:12:05,920
it made sense because all of their

284
00:12:04,390 –> 00:12:07,600
fossil Diesel’s were actually coming

285
00:12:05,920 –> 00:12:09,820
from the Middle East being dropped off

286
00:12:07,600 –> 00:12:13,420
in Mombasa Kenya and then having to be

287
00:12:09,820 –> 00:12:16,330
overland about 1,500 kilometers into the

288
00:12:13,420 –> 00:12:19,120
east of the dr congo so you know from

289
00:12:16,330 –> 00:12:21,160
that if there was an opportunity to just

290
00:12:19,120 –> 00:12:23,980
apply some technical knowledge as well

291
00:12:21,160 –> 00:12:26,770
as some training knowledge then they

292
00:12:23,980 –> 00:12:30,970
could have to have the capacity to build

293
00:12:26,770 –> 00:12:33,370
out their cash crops for energy which

294
00:12:30,970 –> 00:12:35,740
ultimately would help them approach some

295
00:12:33,370 –> 00:12:37,270
health issues and education issues as

296
00:12:35,740 –> 00:12:39,400
well as build up their infrastructure

297
00:12:37,270 –> 00:12:41,530
and at the same time create livelihoods

298
00:12:39,400 –> 00:12:47,920
do that that was the approach that we

299
00:12:41,530 –> 00:12:50,650
really were looking at I think look

300
00:12:47,920 –> 00:12:53,260
timeline of how the Prophet came about

301
00:12:50,650 –> 00:12:56,260
and how it is you develop your ideas as

302
00:12:53,260 –> 00:12:58,930
you were moving through I love that your

303
00:12:56,260 –> 00:13:02,110
initial idea well if we can just rewind

304
00:12:58,930 –> 00:13:03,490
just a bit back to malaria and the fact

305
00:13:02,110 –> 00:13:06,100
that you were touching base with the

306
00:13:03,490 –> 00:13:09,400
Swiss OB how did that conversation come

307
00:13:06,100 –> 00:13:11,830
about what how did you meet her and what

308
00:13:09,400 –> 00:13:14,500
sparked that conversation in and of

309
00:13:11,830 –> 00:13:16,330
itself yeah you know it was quite

310
00:13:14,500 –> 00:13:19,480
serendipitous you know I actually met

311
00:13:16,330 –> 00:13:21,470
her at a conference that i was attending

312
00:13:19,480 –> 00:13:25,190
an education conference and arjun

313
00:13:21,470 –> 00:13:28,480
Tina so um you know after i left the

314
00:13:25,190 –> 00:13:31,760
league I actually really was looking to

315
00:13:28,480 –> 00:13:34,340
see what the next couple of years would

316
00:13:31,760 –> 00:13:35,870
actually look like and I had an

317
00:13:34,340 –> 00:13:37,130
opportunity while I was actually still

318
00:13:35,870 –> 00:13:40,340
playing in the league when I was with

319
00:13:37,130 –> 00:13:42,530
the Denver Broncos to meet my mentor who

320
00:13:40,340 –> 00:13:45,380
was in the aviation business out of the

321
00:13:42,530 –> 00:13:47,420
Netherlands and after every day after

322
00:13:45,380 –> 00:13:50,180
work I would go by this hangar and he

323
00:13:47,420 –> 00:13:53,000
was working on a project there to

324
00:13:50,180 –> 00:13:57,800
actually convert a large passenger plane

325
00:13:53,000 –> 00:13:59,990
into a cargo plane and just the stories

326
00:13:57,800 –> 00:14:02,440
that he was able to supply actually gave

327
00:13:59,990 –> 00:14:04,850
me the opportunity and the desire to

328
00:14:02,440 –> 00:14:07,100
bench around into the world and actually

329
00:14:04,850 –> 00:14:09,500
look at ways that I could give back and

330
00:14:07,100 –> 00:14:11,300
during this time of traveling throughout

331
00:14:09,500 –> 00:14:14,720
Europe I traveled for 10 months out of

332
00:14:11,300 –> 00:14:16,700
Europe in Europe and during that time I

333
00:14:14,720 –> 00:14:18,110
wanted wanted to articulate so I was

334
00:14:16,700 –> 00:14:19,910
introduced to a lot of people in the

335
00:14:18,110 –> 00:14:21,830
sustainable development space the

336
00:14:19,910 –> 00:14:24,140
renewable energy space I took a couple

337
00:14:21,830 –> 00:14:25,970
of courses at tu delft in the

338
00:14:24,140 –> 00:14:28,820
Netherlands was meeting with professors

339
00:14:25,970 –> 00:14:31,850
and and research and development

340
00:14:28,820 –> 00:14:33,740
organizations like Tino and from this I

341
00:14:31,850 –> 00:14:35,630
really wanted to be able to articulate

342
00:14:33,740 –> 00:14:37,190
all of these things that I wanted to

343
00:14:35,630 –> 00:14:40,520
bring into the world so I went back and

344
00:14:37,190 –> 00:14:43,730
I actually got my masters in adult

345
00:14:40,520 –> 00:14:47,270
learning and global change out of Sweden

346
00:14:43,730 –> 00:14:50,060
and from Lynn shopping University and

347
00:14:47,270 –> 00:14:53,630
while I was actually writing my thesis I

348
00:14:50,060 –> 00:14:55,430
went to South America really just to be

349
00:14:53,630 –> 00:14:57,140
with the people really to get first-hand

350
00:14:55,430 –> 00:15:00,140
knowledge on what it was like to be in

351
00:14:57,140 –> 00:15:02,060
developing countries and you know one of

352
00:15:00,140 –> 00:15:04,400
the countries that I went through was

353
00:15:02,060 –> 00:15:08,240
Argentina and I was going to accomplish

354
00:15:04,400 –> 00:15:10,400
there and i met this Swiss obgyn and a

355
00:15:08,240 –> 00:15:11,870
shared cab and I said you know what I’m

356
00:15:10,400 –> 00:15:14,170
really looking at starting this

357
00:15:11,870 –> 00:15:16,370
organization called the wii foundation

358
00:15:14,170 –> 00:15:20,210
you know health is going to be

359
00:15:16,370 –> 00:15:23,480
particularly our main focus for the

360
00:15:20,210 –> 00:15:24,890
first year or two and we I really would

361
00:15:23,480 –> 00:15:29,930
like to know you know what your thoughts

362
00:15:24,890 –> 00:15:31,520
are on on on health initiatives and you

363
00:15:29,930 –> 00:15:32,600
know she put me in contact with this

364
00:15:31,520 –> 00:15:35,010
gentleman who was doing a food

365
00:15:32,600 –> 00:15:37,560
production program in the dr congo

366
00:15:35,010 –> 00:15:39,480
time and you know the rest was kind of

367
00:15:37,560 –> 00:15:41,130
history from there but it was those

368
00:15:39,480 –> 00:15:42,840
serendipitous moments where that light

369
00:15:41,130 –> 00:15:44,790
bulb goes on and says you know what this

370
00:15:42,840 –> 00:15:47,370
person actually resonates the same type

371
00:15:44,790 –> 00:15:48,900
of you know frequency that I am and she

372
00:15:47,370 –> 00:15:51,120
is focused on the same things that I am

373
00:15:48,900 –> 00:15:52,320
so I recognized that as an entrepreneur

374
00:15:51,120 –> 00:15:54,690
and say you know what this is an

375
00:15:52,320 –> 00:15:58,230
opportunity to actually get involved

376
00:15:54,690 –> 00:16:00,420
that’s awesome at the audience to hear

377
00:15:58,230 –> 00:16:02,880
is that those moments come about

378
00:16:00,420 –> 00:16:05,640
sometimes when you’re not expecting it

379
00:16:02,880 –> 00:16:07,380
and you know if you’re just open and

380
00:16:05,640 –> 00:16:09,570
paying attention to the opportunities

381
00:16:07,380 –> 00:16:11,400
that could be available sometimes they

382
00:16:09,570 –> 00:16:12,810
fall in your lap so I I just wanted to

383
00:16:11,400 –> 00:16:14,940
kind of pull that out I thought that was

384
00:16:12,810 –> 00:16:18,380
really interesting marques what do you

385
00:16:14,940 –> 00:16:23,310
feel was the key to your success and why

386
00:16:18,380 –> 00:16:26,430
you know I really think it was for one

387
00:16:23,310 –> 00:16:29,220
confidence and really the the lack of

388
00:16:26,430 –> 00:16:31,680
embarrassment of failing you know I

389
00:16:29,220 –> 00:16:34,260
think with any entrepreneur you have to

390
00:16:31,680 –> 00:16:36,180
be able to dive in and you have to dive

391
00:16:34,260 –> 00:16:38,970
in maybe sometimes without having all of

392
00:16:36,180 –> 00:16:41,460
the details but in the process you will

393
00:16:38,970 –> 00:16:44,250
learn what you can what you need and

394
00:16:41,460 –> 00:16:46,530
what you want to do I think we can all

395
00:16:44,250 –> 00:16:49,080
set goals you know as entrepreneurs to

396
00:16:46,530 –> 00:16:50,220
really look at what are the things and

397
00:16:49,080 –> 00:16:52,170
the objectives that we want to

398
00:16:50,220 –> 00:16:53,970
accomplish but you really don’t know

399
00:16:52,170 –> 00:16:56,700
exactly what the end product will look

400
00:16:53,970 –> 00:16:58,410
like until you get there and you arrive

401
00:16:56,700 –> 00:16:59,940
and even when you arrive there it might

402
00:16:58,410 –> 00:17:03,300
look totally different from what you

403
00:16:59,940 –> 00:17:05,699
manifested it to be become and I think

404
00:17:03,300 –> 00:17:08,040
that’s where entrepreneurs actually can

405
00:17:05,699 –> 00:17:10,740
can gain the most value is just not

406
00:17:08,040 –> 00:17:12,449
being afraid to fail you know everything

407
00:17:10,740 –> 00:17:14,370
is the iteration you know even when we

408
00:17:12,449 –> 00:17:17,130
get to the desired outcome there’s still

409
00:17:14,370 –> 00:17:19,050
something to learn through the process

410
00:17:17,130 –> 00:17:21,199
and not only that but how do we iterate

411
00:17:19,050 –> 00:17:24,390
it to get better and how do we actually

412
00:17:21,199 –> 00:17:26,459
move with the changing tides of being an

413
00:17:24,390 –> 00:17:27,839
entrepreneur so you know even if we

414
00:17:26,459 –> 00:17:29,520
bring something into this world it

415
00:17:27,839 –> 00:17:31,170
doesn’t necessarily mean that in six

416
00:17:29,520 –> 00:17:33,720
months is going to be the same solution

417
00:17:31,170 –> 00:17:35,760
that’s needed so being able to make

418
00:17:33,720 –> 00:17:39,210
mistake after mistake and come back

419
00:17:35,760 –> 00:17:40,890
learn from your mistakes you know use

420
00:17:39,210 –> 00:17:42,570
that wisdom and that experience and that

421
00:17:40,890 –> 00:17:45,000
knowledge to actually create something

422
00:17:42,570 –> 00:17:47,010
better in the future what do you look

423
00:17:45,000 –> 00:17:49,009
for perspective entrepreneur should

424
00:17:47,010 –> 00:17:52,320
really taking difference

425
00:17:49,009 –> 00:17:55,139
really think through prior to embarking

426
00:17:52,320 –> 00:17:57,570
on a sort of entrepreneurial journey be

427
00:17:55,139 –> 00:17:59,070
in any industry what do you feel with

428
00:17:57,570 –> 00:18:02,789
one of the most important things they

429
00:17:59,070 –> 00:18:06,720
should think through um I really think

430
00:18:02,789 –> 00:18:09,450
is the why you know and you know a lot

431
00:18:06,720 –> 00:18:11,999
of us have ideas and a lot of us want to

432
00:18:09,450 –> 00:18:13,860
create you know different type of

433
00:18:11,999 –> 00:18:16,440
opportunities for ourselves and others

434
00:18:13,860 –> 00:18:18,749
but I really think that you know as an

435
00:18:16,440 –> 00:18:21,299
entrepreneur you have to understand why

436
00:18:18,749 –> 00:18:23,129
you’re doing something and it can’t be a

437
00:18:21,299 –> 00:18:25,409
motive obsess I’m trying to make money

438
00:18:23,129 –> 00:18:27,749
you know you have to be an impact where

439
00:18:25,409 –> 00:18:31,740
your time is calculated you know so

440
00:18:27,749 –> 00:18:34,139
spending time on one type of solution

441
00:18:31,740 –> 00:18:37,409
you’re forgoing figuring out something

442
00:18:34,139 –> 00:18:39,929
else you know so if you know why and you

443
00:18:37,409 –> 00:18:42,450
have a passion you know for what you’re

444
00:18:39,929 –> 00:18:44,789
doing then I think that you’ll figure it

445
00:18:42,450 –> 00:18:46,590
out on how to actually accomplish and

446
00:18:44,789 –> 00:18:50,190
actually come to a solution for that

447
00:18:46,590 –> 00:18:53,249
specific problem I think without the why

448
00:18:50,190 –> 00:18:56,879
you actually ultimately run into you

449
00:18:53,249 –> 00:18:59,039
know some multiple real obstacles that

450
00:18:56,879 –> 00:19:01,200
will kind of hinder you from actually

451
00:18:59,039 –> 00:19:04,470
ever figure it out or you might not have

452
00:19:01,200 –> 00:19:07,619
a map on actually what the outcome

453
00:19:04,470 –> 00:19:09,389
should be so really identifying what it

454
00:19:07,619 –> 00:19:11,759
is that you want to accomplish why do

455
00:19:09,389 –> 00:19:13,740
you want to accomplish that and then

456
00:19:11,759 –> 00:19:16,049
really just focus on who you’re actually

457
00:19:13,740 –> 00:19:18,059
a compensated for so my main thing

458
00:19:16,049 –> 00:19:20,070
actually when I was looking through a

459
00:19:18,059 –> 00:19:21,869
lot of the projects it always started

460
00:19:20,070 –> 00:19:24,210
with the people you know when I actually

461
00:19:21,869 –> 00:19:27,179
voyage through a lot of these different

462
00:19:24,210 –> 00:19:29,369
communities I really took time to

463
00:19:27,179 –> 00:19:31,440
harness the ancient wisdom that was

464
00:19:29,369 –> 00:19:33,240
already on the ground and that takes a

465
00:19:31,440 –> 00:19:34,889
lot of time you know that takes trust

466
00:19:33,240 –> 00:19:37,259
that is built from the community that

467
00:19:34,889 –> 00:19:39,779
takes a narrative to be shared you know

468
00:19:37,259 –> 00:19:44,009
from the community that they’re going to

469
00:19:39,779 –> 00:19:46,619
you know feel you know comfortable with

470
00:19:44,009 –> 00:19:49,169
actually telling you the real situation

471
00:19:46,619 –> 00:19:52,590
of what’s going on so the people were

472
00:19:49,169 –> 00:19:55,289
always kind of my focus and how and what

473
00:19:52,590 –> 00:19:59,149
and why I was doing always surfaced

474
00:19:55,289 –> 00:19:59,149
around the people

475
00:20:00,300 –> 00:20:08,730
what do you feel would be one of the

476
00:20:04,870 –> 00:20:11,200
bigger things to caution in entrepreneur

477
00:20:08,730 –> 00:20:13,090
you know what do you feel is one of the

478
00:20:11,200 –> 00:20:15,310
bigger mistakes that they tend to make

479
00:20:13,090 –> 00:20:17,320
or that you’ve seen over time and

480
00:20:15,310 –> 00:20:19,780
someone is building at a business or

481
00:20:17,320 –> 00:20:22,210
even one of the bigger mistakes that you

482
00:20:19,780 –> 00:20:24,130
felt you were making when building out

483
00:20:22,210 –> 00:20:26,080
the reef foundation what do you feel is

484
00:20:24,130 –> 00:20:29,650
one of those bigger things to caution

485
00:20:26,080 –> 00:20:32,110
entrepreneurs event yeah i think is

486
00:20:29,650 –> 00:20:35,080
really knowing that you may not know

487
00:20:32,110 –> 00:20:37,330
everything you know and i think as we go

488
00:20:35,080 –> 00:20:38,860
into entrepreneurship we think that oh

489
00:20:37,330 –> 00:20:41,560
yeah the world should just work like

490
00:20:38,860 –> 00:20:43,770
this because we say so you know and i

491
00:20:41,560 –> 00:20:46,030
think stepping out of the realm of

492
00:20:43,770 –> 00:20:48,970
thinking that the world revolves around

493
00:20:46,030 –> 00:20:52,210
our ideas and really starting to look at

494
00:20:48,970 –> 00:20:56,710
what is actually ready to come into the

495
00:20:52,210 –> 00:20:59,410
world you know what can the populations

496
00:20:56,710 –> 00:21:01,810
and either a community regionally or

497
00:20:59,410 –> 00:21:03,730
even globally what can be absorbed right

498
00:21:01,810 –> 00:21:06,010
now you know of course we want to bring

499
00:21:03,730 –> 00:21:08,080
peace into the world you know but there

500
00:21:06,010 –> 00:21:09,640
are certain subsequent things that need

501
00:21:08,080 –> 00:21:11,560
to happen you know whether it be in

502
00:21:09,640 –> 00:21:13,660
currency is whether it be in education

503
00:21:11,560 –> 00:21:15,400
whether it be in energy solutions that

504
00:21:13,660 –> 00:21:17,290
need to happen before we can get to that

505
00:21:15,400 –> 00:21:20,440
goal so kind of knowing that there’s a

506
00:21:17,290 –> 00:21:23,740
process and it was in getting to our

507
00:21:20,440 –> 00:21:27,490
goals is one of the biggest things that

508
00:21:23,740 –> 00:21:30,220
I could say that that a entrepreneur

509
00:21:27,490 –> 00:21:32,380
needs to really understand and then

510
00:21:30,220 –> 00:21:34,720
after that is really just identifying

511
00:21:32,380 –> 00:21:37,390
that there is a problem you know and

512
00:21:34,720 –> 00:21:38,770
what that problem is and if there are

513
00:21:37,390 –> 00:21:41,380
other people that are actually working

514
00:21:38,770 –> 00:21:43,270
on that problem so what I found like you

515
00:21:41,380 –> 00:21:45,310
know a lot of organizations sometimes in

516
00:21:43,270 –> 00:21:48,100
the development space they’ll put a lot

517
00:21:45,310 –> 00:21:49,540
of resources into solving the same

518
00:21:48,100 –> 00:21:51,490
problem that somebody else may be

519
00:21:49,540 –> 00:21:53,710
working on you know so really

520
00:21:51,490 –> 00:21:55,930
identifying you know who else is in this

521
00:21:53,710 –> 00:21:57,880
space who was working and instead of

522
00:21:55,930 –> 00:21:59,710
actually putting more resources or

523
00:21:57,880 –> 00:22:01,900
redundant resources into figuring out

524
00:21:59,710 –> 00:22:03,340
that solution how about a collaboration

525
00:22:01,900 –> 00:22:05,470
to where we can actually share knowledge

526
00:22:03,340 –> 00:22:06,700
we can actually work together and we

527
00:22:05,470 –> 00:22:08,320
could say this is what we’ve been

528
00:22:06,700 –> 00:22:10,000
working on these are some of our results

529
00:22:08,320 –> 00:22:12,520
instead of trying to reinvent the wheel

530
00:22:10,000 –> 00:22:13,059
every time that a solution actually

531
00:22:12,520 –> 00:22:16,090
needs

532
00:22:13,059 –> 00:22:18,309
the approach so I really think that it’s

533
00:22:16,090 –> 00:22:21,610
about timing you know and knowing when

534
00:22:18,309 –> 00:22:23,080
to actually engage and bring something

535
00:22:21,610 –> 00:22:25,929
into the world and I think it’s also

536
00:22:23,080 –> 00:22:27,220
about knowing that there may be other

537
00:22:25,929 –> 00:22:28,629
information or other groups or

538
00:22:27,220 –> 00:22:31,059
organizations that you can particularly

539
00:22:28,629 –> 00:22:34,779
collaborate with that will save you a

540
00:22:31,059 –> 00:22:37,539
lot of time and headache sometimes you

541
00:22:34,779 –> 00:22:40,059
know to creating your goals it’s very

542
00:22:37,539 –> 00:22:41,590
much yes there’s a process and knowing

543
00:22:40,059 –> 00:22:43,899
that you should reaching out and

544
00:22:41,590 –> 00:22:45,369
networking so that you can go ahead and

545
00:22:43,899 –> 00:22:47,409
connect with the right people so that

546
00:22:45,369 –> 00:22:50,259
you know what’s going on you know in

547
00:22:47,409 –> 00:22:51,940
that space of that field whatever it may

548
00:22:50,259 –> 00:22:54,330
be across the board so that you’re not

549
00:22:51,940 –> 00:22:57,909
like you said reinventing the wheel

550
00:22:54,330 –> 00:23:00,070
excellent the show is really designed to

551
00:22:57,909 –> 00:23:02,320
help entrepreneurs come up with ideas

552
00:23:00,070 –> 00:23:04,720
for innovative companies to solve the

553
00:23:02,320 –> 00:23:06,999
pain in an industry that they may not

554
00:23:04,720 –> 00:23:09,730
have thought of so marquise Lee would

555
00:23:06,999 –> 00:23:13,419
love to help you if you had a magic wand

556
00:23:09,730 –> 00:23:15,869
and could shape anything at all across

557
00:23:13,419 –> 00:23:18,369
the weave foundation about you know

558
00:23:15,869 –> 00:23:25,440
regardless of which initiative you might

559
00:23:18,369 –> 00:23:30,249
choose what would you change and why um

560
00:23:25,440 –> 00:23:32,799
well I would change you know just I

561
00:23:30,249 –> 00:23:35,919
think one of the biggest things for the

562
00:23:32,799 –> 00:23:39,610
wii foundation is really being able to

563
00:23:35,919 –> 00:23:43,590
identify good opportunities you know

564
00:23:39,610 –> 00:23:43,590
it’s one thing for an organization to

565
00:23:44,519 –> 00:23:48,730
understand what is actually going on in

566
00:23:46,629 –> 00:23:50,740
the world but it’s also understanding

567
00:23:48,730 –> 00:23:53,200
what the capacities that they have to

568
00:23:50,740 –> 00:23:56,080
give in order to approach certain

569
00:23:53,200 –> 00:23:57,820
solutions so really identifying the

570
00:23:56,080 –> 00:24:00,759
problems you know whether it’s in a

571
00:23:57,820 –> 00:24:03,429
local community in Africa or in the

572
00:24:00,759 –> 00:24:07,659
Middle East it’s really about finding

573
00:24:03,429 –> 00:24:09,580
those aspects of capacity that the wii

574
00:24:07,659 –> 00:24:12,759
foundation currently has and how do we

575
00:24:09,580 –> 00:24:15,789
maximize that in order to solve problems

576
00:24:12,759 –> 00:24:21,759
so really I think it’s just getting an

577
00:24:15,789 –> 00:24:23,529
opportunity to have a broad spectrum of

578
00:24:21,759 –> 00:24:25,960
people that are involved with the reef

579
00:24:23,529 –> 00:24:26,890
foundation in order to approach

580
00:24:25,960 –> 00:24:28,570
different

581
00:24:26,890 –> 00:24:32,190
projects that may have a specific

582
00:24:28,570 –> 00:24:37,690
solution in order to actually come to a

583
00:24:32,190 –> 00:24:39,580
resolvable program and you know through

584
00:24:37,690 –> 00:24:41,290
that it’s just really getting back to a

585
00:24:39,580 –> 00:24:43,900
word that you use before is networking

586
00:24:41,290 –> 00:24:45,520
but also activating the network so it’s

587
00:24:43,900 –> 00:24:47,800
one thing to have a network but it’s

588
00:24:45,520 –> 00:24:51,160
really activating that network in order

589
00:24:47,800 –> 00:24:53,110
to create these flash teams that can

590
00:24:51,160 –> 00:24:55,060
solve problems not only in their local

591
00:24:53,110 –> 00:24:59,500
or regional aspects but on a global

592
00:24:55,060 –> 00:25:02,500
basis certainly I will trigger pulled

593
00:24:59,500 –> 00:25:05,290
that out of there thing to network into

594
00:25:02,500 –> 00:25:06,940
touch base and and to have those mentors

595
00:25:05,290 –> 00:25:08,680
that you may be able to work with sure

596
00:25:06,940 –> 00:25:11,440
and there but to actually activate the

597
00:25:08,680 –> 00:25:14,010
network to get involved with any sort of

598
00:25:11,440 –> 00:25:16,450
initiative can be extremely difficult

599
00:25:14,010 –> 00:25:18,670
marques what would you suggest would be

600
00:25:16,450 –> 00:25:22,030
you know how do you go about activating

601
00:25:18,670 –> 00:25:24,940
their network um you know it’s really

602
00:25:22,030 –> 00:25:26,410
about identifying who can do what you

603
00:25:24,940 –> 00:25:28,960
know and I think it’s really about being

604
00:25:26,410 –> 00:25:31,510
open as an entrepreneur you want to you

605
00:25:28,960 –> 00:25:34,270
know be open to a lot of different ideas

606
00:25:31,510 –> 00:25:36,580
because you know someone might not be

607
00:25:34,270 –> 00:25:38,140
directly resonant with what you do but

608
00:25:36,580 –> 00:25:40,150
there may be bits and pieces of what

609
00:25:38,140 –> 00:25:42,160
they say and it could be one sentence it

610
00:25:40,150 –> 00:25:43,630
could be one word so I think really it’s

611
00:25:42,160 –> 00:25:46,300
about being open to new opportunities

612
00:25:43,630 –> 00:25:48,970
being open to new conversations being

613
00:25:46,300 –> 00:25:50,770
open to new experiences being willing to

614
00:25:48,970 –> 00:25:54,340
adventure and to kind of push your

615
00:25:50,770 –> 00:25:56,650
limits knowing that there may be either

616
00:25:54,340 –> 00:25:59,890
a pot of gold you know on the other side

617
00:25:56,650 –> 00:26:03,280
of that question that you ask or that

618
00:25:59,890 –> 00:26:06,430
that trip that you take and once you

619
00:26:03,280 –> 00:26:08,410
identify that being able to place you

620
00:26:06,430 –> 00:26:10,780
know those those ideas and those people

621
00:26:08,410 –> 00:26:13,990
in a very structured framework in order

622
00:26:10,780 –> 00:26:17,200
to create in a solution you might have

623
00:26:13,990 –> 00:26:19,150
you know three thousand you know people

624
00:26:17,200 –> 00:26:22,060
that you can call upon but maybe five of

625
00:26:19,150 –> 00:26:23,620
those would be well suited to solve the

626
00:26:22,060 –> 00:26:25,960
problem that you’re trying to approach

627
00:26:23,620 –> 00:26:28,780
you know and being able to sift through

628
00:26:25,960 –> 00:26:31,420
you know that information and identify

629
00:26:28,780 –> 00:26:33,850
those people is a skill in itself so

630
00:26:31,420 –> 00:26:36,910
really being able to hone in on you know

631
00:26:33,850 –> 00:26:39,070
who has what who has similar passions

632
00:26:36,910 –> 00:26:40,570
who has similar desires who has similar

633
00:26:39,070 –> 00:26:42,070
objectives that I could align

634
00:26:40,570 –> 00:26:45,100
myself with to solve this particular

635
00:26:42,070 –> 00:26:47,080
problem so yeah I think it’s really

636
00:26:45,100 –> 00:26:49,330
about identifying the resources the

637
00:26:47,080 –> 00:26:51,269
capacity that you have internally but

638
00:26:49,330 –> 00:26:53,710
then also seeing where you can actually

639
00:26:51,269 –> 00:26:56,289
align yourself with your external

640
00:26:53,710 –> 00:27:01,179
networking group to activate them

641
00:26:56,289 –> 00:27:03,279
appropriately in order to to achieve

642
00:27:01,179 –> 00:27:05,110
good results because the last thing that

643
00:27:03,279 –> 00:27:06,970
we really want to do is ask somebody to

644
00:27:05,110 –> 00:27:08,529
do something that’s not in their in

645
00:27:06,970 –> 00:27:11,259
their will it’s not in their passion

646
00:27:08,529 –> 00:27:13,509
it’s not in their desire but if you can

647
00:27:11,259 –> 00:27:15,580
kind of hone in on what that is that

648
00:27:13,509 –> 00:27:17,080
they’re passionate about and if it

649
00:27:15,580 –> 00:27:18,820
aligns with the solution that you’re

650
00:27:17,080 –> 00:27:21,370
trying to solve then I think it’s a

651
00:27:18,820 –> 00:27:25,919
win-win synergy and most of the time

652
00:27:21,370 –> 00:27:28,120
