Friday morning, May 18, 2018, I was on my way to Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt Tech High School in East LA to speak to this group of 16 & 17-year old kids from underprivileged communities. We started the day with a moment of silence to acknowledge the events that had taken place that morning in Texas, to think about these kids lives and how fortunate they are to have the opportunity to discover new career paths through the work of Mark Stagen and the Youth Business Alliance. We spent the next 90 minutes playing Monopoly - some played the role of the Business Owner, while others were Accountants and Property Managers responsible for recording transactions, providing insight and crucial decision-making information to the Business Owners. Together, they discovered what they liked and didn't like about entrepreneurship, business and accounting. Hopefully, I made a positive impact in one of these kids lives that day and gave them a reason to continue to hope and dream despite the unspeakable tragedy we all woke up to that morning.
