Not all business education is created equal.
Business is not just one thing and neither are you. Creating, marketing, selling – it all comes down to the who behind the how. You do not have to follow what everyone else does. You have ALL the power. We are the courageous few who aspire to greatness AND goodness. We give. We earn. And we fuck with paradigms that crush our goddamn souls.
Integrity. Quality. Rebellion.
Business is the most powerful force in the modern world. Use it well.
