IGP: The High School to College Transition
In this episode, Abby and Megan focus in on their personal journeys as young innovators. They share insight on the challenging yet empowering transition from high-school to college while identifying the reasons that they remain committed to entrepreneurship.
I've been listening to StartEd Up since pretty early on. It's a great show! I love the "disruptive discourse" that takes place. Don does a great job creating conversations about what's done in traditional classrooms and schools from the lens of what students will need in today's world (or in the near future). I have a hard time keeping up with all of the episodes, but that's okay - any one that you listen to packs a powerful & valuable message.
I enjoy the 'crucial conversations' Friday show as well as Don's quick Monday Motivation episodes. They've got great guests from not only the education space but often from the entrepreneur space as well.
I love Don’s quick hits & thoughts. He gets right to it and the shows really make me think. Thank you!!’ 💪💪
