Wisdom of Youth

"Being young has this incredible benefit that being old by definition doesn't. You don't have a box to think in. No idea is impossible. However, you have to combine that with older people. Because what older people have by definition - that younger people by definition don't - is a sense of reality. And if you combine the two, you get to create ideas that have never been thought about, but can actually be implemented. That's a cool combination."

- Tom Szaky, Founder of TerraCycle

The eClips collection contains comments from the entire spectrum of business. One area that we find particularly fascinating are the comments from over 40 "young" entrepreneurs (under the age of 30). Some express unbridled optimism that they will change the world. Others share the war stories and the realization that entrepreneurship isn't only about being your own boss. Regardless of the story and the outcome, all of them have wisdom to share.

Check out the Young Entrepreneur Collection in eClips.
