Good Advice For Me and You

Category : My First Job

I just found this advice from Jim Spanfeller, President and CEO of, in an interview with David Mammano, founder of The Next Step Magazine (who should probably partner with us.)

Spanfeller responded to the question, “What’s your advice to teens who want to run a company?”

“Play team sports. Or be the editor or publisher of your school paper. Or be the director of the school play. In other words, just get involved with a group that needs to have leadership, and then try to provide that leadership. Know you’ll make mistakes along the way, and there are times when you’ll be chastised by your peers and be a bit humiliated. That’s part of the learning process, and the great thing you can take from that is how to deal and move on.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.
