★ Josh Tolley Full Interview – Backstage Pass Members Only

“Homeschool families have an amazing opportunity when it comes to teaching their children about entrepreneurship,because what we see in schools… what we see in mass education is that we have a system that has to be graded, and if it has to be graded then it has to be taught to all students the same. This is the reason when people come to me and say, “Josh what MBA program in college should I go partake in to be a great entrepreneur?” I say, “none”, because MBA programs produce great managers. They don’t create great entrepreneurs, because great entrepreneurs have to do something that isn’t easily replicable, and when you have four thousand kids all getting their MBA this year they all got graded on the same criteria all you did was create four thousand people that are going to replicate answers and expect results. The opportunity for homeschoolers lies in the fact that everything can be customizable and applicable.” – Josh Tolley
