On Wednesday, June 19 at the Regis University Main Campus, Marilynn Force will be speaking about The Entrepreneurial Mindset, a perspective based upon her recent her visit to the Kauffman Foundation.
It was during this visit that Marilynn received facilitator training on “Who Owns the Ice House: Eight Entrepreneurial Lessons from an Unlikely Entrepreneur,” which is based on over 300 interviews of successful Entrepreneurs with a focus on the life experiences of Clifton Taulbert, the man who made “Stairmaster” a household word and exercise reality.
The Entrepreneurial Mindset will examine the story of Clifton Taulbert, a young man from 1950’s Mississippi, and how his Uncle Cleave, who owned the only Ice House in that area of the southern delta, taught him what unique characteristics had to be developed to drive a successful Entrepreneurial environment.
“Clifton Taulbert’s story of learning to become an entrepreneur from his Uncle Cleve is afforimation that through the act of engaging community, reflection and opportunity, a society can rebuild itself,” Marilynn explains. “It has renewed my faith that entrepreneurship can be taught and understood by many. This training will change the scope of how entreprneurship is being taught now and for the future.”
Join us here in Regis Main Campus on Wednesday the 19th at Main Hall room 333 as from 6PM. This event is free and open to the public.
Marilynn Force is the Education Consultant of the Sullivan Chair of Free Enterprise and a Regis University CPS affiliate faculty member.
