UQTV: Unique School Helps Kids Learn Real Life Skills

Alexandria Joy - Monday, October 27, 2014
Have you ever had a passion so strong that you felt compelled to create a product or a business to bring it to life?

Well today we’re going to behind the scenes of a small business to spotlight a young woman who has pursued her passion and created something really unique and special. If you've ever read Robert Kiyosaki's Best Selling Book Rich Dad, Poor Dad then this story will resonate with you.

Watch this episode of UQTV to see how this woman has disrupted the traditional education model to re-imagine education with great results.

Now I’d love to hear from you. 
  1. Where can you be more attentive to your customers unique needs? 
  2. How can you disrupt the market you are in?
  3. When has persistence really paid off for you?
Remember keep on building a life, business or career that plays to your unique strengths – the best thing you can do to change the world and become a great leader worth following is to #startwithU.

I love that they are teaching these children real essential life skills for the real world! how fabulous!

Hopefully they are also teaching cooking and food info too. And hopefully they are also getting to play :) we don't want kids growing up too fast!

Yes Trudy - they are certainly playing and having fun while learning - I don't think they cover nutrition but its good food for thought - I will share with Jaimie Lee!

I have a small business teaching elderly and disabled customers about their options for Medicare advantage plans and options available to them.
I have a strength in making to do list so I carefully examine their health care needs and have them complete a to do list catering to their special needs and get tons of referrals based on teaching them how to get what is on the I list.

Good on your Yolanda - we are never to old to learn new things and take care of our finances!

I have always maintained that schools need to offer real life skills so that kids have usable adult skills when they graduate. It's good to see a start toward financial literacy. I agree with Trudy it would be really good if they can get food and nutrition literacy as well.
