Me, Inc. Workshop at Summer Search Alumni Summit 2008

I had an absolutely fantastic time today with about 50 Summer Search alumni at their annual leadership summit at the Masonic Center in San Francisco. I facilitated a workshop entitled “Me, Inc.: Building Entrepreneurship into your Life,” which led to discussions on entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship.

It was great to be in the presence of so many engaged, eager, and “hungry” leaders. I could tell that they were so ready and willing to absorb lessons so that they could take them back and affect change in their communities. It was so refreshing! Summer Search is definitely an organization to keep on your radar. This year they have a $12 million budget and seven sites across the nation serving almost 800 students. They want to aggressively grow with a capital campaign of $20 million, to serve 2,000 students in the next few years. Judging from the amazing individuals I met today, the program is working, and I look forward to seeing their growth in the next few years.

If you went to my workshop, and have questions, comments, or feedback for me, please do not hesitate to contact me! I know we ran out of time, and I could have spent hours more discussing it, so feel free to connect if you have any questions or ideas for me.

I also promised the Summer Searchers that I would post up my powerpoint presentation and worksheet on my site, so you can get them below. I only ask that if you found my tools useful, share the knowledge and tell someone about it. Maybe you can get together with people in your support networks to discover how each of you are living and being the CEO’s of Me, Inc.

To download the worksheet, right-click and “save as” the following link to get the PDF.

And lastly, if you are interested in learning more about the Level 5 Fellowship that I briefly alluded to or know someone who would be interested, please check out our website at Help us spread the word!

It was a pleasure and a privilege, Summer Searchers! Thanks!
