Think like an entrepreneur

Updated: Dec 30, 2021

The cofounders of WEquil School, Sumay and Aila McPhail, gave a speech to group of Girls Scouts in Falls Church Virginia on April 29, 2021. Their speech titled “Think Like an Entrepreneur” has been published below in full. The key message is that you don’t need to start a business to think like an entrepreneur. All you need to do is learn to see problems as opportunities to leverage your unique strengths and interests. They also discuss the growing success of WEquil School, a project based virtual leadership training platform that helps young people learn to think like an entrepreneur.
