The US and Global economies have entered the greatest recession since the 1930’s. US Bureau Of Labor Studies show continued shrinking employment opportunities for teens and young adults ages 15 - 26. Many have little or no college degrees and are seeking alternative & cost effective vocational training that fulfills their passions as well as their employment needs and provides the necessary blend of skills required to compete in the information age economy. The young adults of the millennial generation are poised to experience a paradigm shift in learning that will allow them to learn at an accelerated pace and consume & pay for their learning on an as needed basis. Pyramind Online is perfectly poised to deliver the right blend of comprehensive training via mobile compatible technology and at a price that will change the way vocational education is perceived and consumed.

I am a(n):

Entrepreneur

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

Serendipitously fell into it...

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Most frustrating are the limitations imposed by financial restrictions.
Most rewarding is the freedom to build something you're passionate about.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Try to do too much and make decisions based on their gut and not qualified data or analytics.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

Pace yourself and don't try to grow too fast.
Managing people is an art and not a science.
Never take anything in business personally...even when it's personal.
