00:00:06 00:00:07 >> Love.
00:00:07 00:00:09 >> New thinking.
00:00:09 00:00:10 >> Unlearning.
00:00:11 00:00:12 >> Ideas.
00:00:13 00:00:14 >> Necessary.
00:00:14 00:00:16 >> Fun, energetic.
00:00:16 00:00:18 >> What's the opposite of structure?
00:00:20 00:00:23 Freedom and structure together,
00:00:23 00:00:27 while having people from all walks of life
00:00:28 00:00:31 mingling in this freedom structure.
00:00:31 00:00:33 >> There was always this nagging feeling for me
00:00:33 00:00:37 that I wanted to do more, like I know I could do more,
00:00:37 00:00:39 introducing us to the fact
00:00:39 00:00:40 that you can make a life
00:00:40 00:00:41 and a living while
00:00:41 00:00:43 making positive changes. >> Yes.
00:00:43 00:00:46 >> Through my experience, I know that a lot of times
00:00:46 00:00:47 it's not really the answers that I'm searching for,
00:00:47 00:00:48 it's a questions.
00:00:48 00:00:52 >> I feel like everyone should be able to make a profit,
00:00:52 00:00:53 but as well as take care of our planet
00:00:53 00:00:55 and people at the same time.
00:00:55 00:00:59 >> It's really a group of people who care about your success.
00:00:59 00:01:00 Like my success,
00:01:00 00:01:02 I really felt that from everyone I worked with.
00:01:02 00:01:05 >> They came from the non-profit world,
00:01:05 00:01:07 they came from the corporate world, they came from startups,
00:01:07 00:01:10 they came from their own entrepreneurial initiatives.
00:01:10 00:01:12 >> We got to analyze some of our own biases,
00:01:12 00:01:14 some of our own beliefs and some of our own thoughts
00:01:14 00:01:16 and realize that actually, yeah,
00:01:16 00:01:19 the project is really working on ourselves.
00:01:19 00:01:20 And working on how we're offering
00:01:20 00:01:22 what we're offering to the world.
00:01:22 00:01:24 >> You get a lot of different types of conversations,
00:01:24 00:01:25 so like the conversation you may not have
00:01:25 00:01:28 in like a purely academic setting,
00:01:28 00:01:30 I'd say like the university.
00:01:30 00:01:32 >> This is a space where you can get help,
00:01:32 00:01:36 support, ideas and friendship.
00:01:37 00:01:40 >> It's the encouraging and that you can do it
00:01:40 00:01:42 and given me confidence.
00:01:42 00:01:44 >> And when you have a great team of folks
00:01:44 00:01:47 who can curate a good dialogue,
00:01:47 00:01:49 or a good space for dialogue,
00:01:49 00:01:53 and then allow folks with intelligence, creativity,
00:01:53 00:01:55 and passion to fill that space.
00:01:55 00:01:57 I think that's what really creates a lot of
00:01:57 00:01:59 the good stuff that
00:01:59 00:02:01 you can't really replicate anywhere else.
00:02:01 00:02:03 >> You might not hear what you want to hear
00:02:03 00:02:05 when you ask for advice from outsiders,
00:02:05 00:02:08 but sometimes it's what you need to hear
00:02:08 00:02:09 in order to shape your idea.
00:02:09 00:02:11 >> SSE will test you,
00:02:11 00:02:13 it will push you it will challenge you
00:02:13 00:02:15 in the most loving and supportive way,
00:02:15 00:02:17 an organization and people who will do that
00:02:17 00:02:19 and will push you out of your comfort zone
00:02:19 00:02:21 in such a caring environment
00:02:21 00:02:24 is really something hard to find.
00:02:24 00:02:28 So my advice is to be open to unlearning the things
00:02:28 00:02:30 that you think you know,
00:02:30 00:02:32 and be open to new experiences.
00:02:32 00:02:34 Be open to new relationships
00:02:34 00:02:36 because it will transform your life.
