    I find it interesting that Apple took a fall with Newton, anyone who
    studied gravity should have seen that coming.

    Basic business management should be taught throughout schools at all levels.

    I am in the process of incorporating my startup and have no formal business
    education. I certainly have the idea, drive and desire, so hopefully it
    works for me!

    A personal finance class should be required for any non-business majors.
    Colleges don’t teach how to balance a checkbook because that is an
    antiquated thing best left to high school education.

    For the same reason you should’nt, because people like to hear themselves
    “TALK”

    Schools just don’t teach the common sense stuff in business school and the
    dedication you have to put towards your business to make it work.

    55:00 – Heh. I have almost the same experience. We get together for
    meetings. But the problem is that it’s to get the subordinates to do
    something while the managers kick back. I have little respect for managers
    at my previous company. The subordinates do almost everything while the
    managers pinpoint what’s wrong AFTER an incident’s occurred. Then they push
    the blame to the subordinates because….well, it’s the peons who did all
    the work! “I didn’t do it! Blame the one who did the job!”

    Excellent video. There exists one glaring omission in the route to
    entrepreneurial success: LUCK. For every successful venture, a dozen or
    more lie in its wake. And one piece of advice for future MBAs: if you want
    to learn to be an entrepreneur, skip school altogether and start a company.
    You’ll learn more by investing your precious time and money into setting it
    up, growing it, scaling it, and selling it. MBA programs seem to do little
    more than polishing future consultants or bankers.

    The sequoia guy should stop producing noise and listen more to the three

    He’s put off by the guy in the striped blue shirt. It seemed he felt
    undermined by the suggestion that he was only successful by default because
    he started at the dawn of the internet age.

    You need to look again at your finance course concerning leverage. Bank are
    not in debt because they don’t teach in schools how to balance checkbook…
    Leverage (and thus very high ration D/E) : you amplify your gain with a
    minimum amount of capital which is one of the main idea of leverage.

    Is it me, but it feels like those start-ups are just a way to rip stock
    market “investors”? Looks like only the woman in the middle has an actual
    business that serves people and generates revenues, everybody else is in it
    for a gamble. Shouldn’t BSchools be ashamed of it? Or feel that something
    is odd here?…

    7 years sales experience, baby! If you’re looking to get experience- work
    part-time in retail, if only for the experience in what customers are
    like/how to work with them.

    When she spoke later to the women about how entrepreneurship was compatible
    with being a mother, it was really just an excuse to try and flog them some
    Farley’s Rusks.

    CEO entrepren. David Cassidy,(Harvard), Nazila Alasti, (Stanford), Will
    Price (Northwestern U mba). Main points: What led them to decide to follow
    an entrepreneurial path. What was the biggest surprise once you jumped in.
    Lessons learned – what are the 1 or 2 key lessons that have been important
    to your success or learned from lack of success (failures). How and where
    did you learn these one or two key lessons. How did or didn’t business
    school prepare you, that has been of great importance.

    I remember once Tony Bennette was interviewed about his secret of success
    and he was like “Lady Gaga”. Think about it, Lady Gaga has her “power” of
    being a successful young woman; therefore, she might be someone that
    business schools need to study on.

    Please, make a suggestion on how to stop borrowing money…… You can’t
    because it’s an inevitable part of our current monetary system. With no
    debt, there is no money. Interest guarantees that debts cannot be paid off
    in full because there is never enough money in supply to fill the demand. I
    suppose we could change from a monetary system to a resource based economy,
    but that wouldn’t serve the ones with money like our current system does so
    that’s unlikely to happen.

    No. I’m not joking. HBS and YBS can’t compensate for Stanford, with Silicon
    Valley next door.

    … was interested until they started with the ‘law of attraction’
    fables… it’s a motivational video for the ones for whom truth is not an
    issue, and for whom faith triumphs… unfortunately, for those WITH an
    intellect, a motivational discourse should make sense as well… concepts
    of gods, souls, collective consciousness, trolls, gnomes, fairies,
    unicorns, etc, should be kept out of a coherent, rational, mature
    discourse. If not to remain truthful than at least from the point of view
    of remaining relevant to people from all categories and walks of life, not
    just the creationists, pseudo-scientist and new-age acolytes.
