Learning Through Laughter

"Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers." - Bill Cosby

While eClips hasn't ventured into the world of stand-up comedy, we have created a new theme to group some of the more memorable anecdotes shared by our entrepreneurs and experts.

Some share tales of hitting rock-bottom as entrepreneurs...
Others share stories of business and product failures...
A few reflect on the insane risks taken while chasing down their dreams...

The common thread though is that all the speakers came through the trials stronger with their senses of humor intact...and we can now learn from their adventures (and chuckle a bit too) as we listen to their stories.

Ready for a laugh? Listen to the clips in our new theme Humorous and Memorable Stories About The Journey.

Insights From Internships

"It opened to my eyes a whole other area."
- Scott Bernstein's thoughts on his internship experience

Internships are the ultimate in experiential learning. For a summer or a semester, students have the chance to see what it is like to work in the "real world". Some walk away realizing that it is their dream and can't wait until graduation to make it a reality. Others walk away with a new perspecitve and realize that they need to change course.

Many of the entrepreneurs and experts that have spoke to eClips have shared their thoughts on internships and we have collected those clips into a new theme.

Interested in finding out more about what entrepreneurs and business leaders have to say about the value of internships? Listen to the clips in our new theme Internships Can Open Your Eyes.

Sweet Charity

"We think about trying to make the world a better place and I think that we're both crazy enough to think that maybe we can make a little bit of a difference." - Sandy Weill

eClips is pleased to announce the creation of a new theme to celebrate exciting news that came out of Cornell University yesterday.

On June 13, 2007, Cornell University President David Skorton announced extraordinary gifts of $450 million to the university's philanthropic campaign. The principal gift of $300 million - the largest single donation Cornell has ever received - came from Joan and Sanford I. Weill.

To celebrate the occasion - and to highlight some of our clips from Sandy Weill and other importance philanthropists - we created the theme Personal Thoughts on Philanthropy and Charitable Giving. Check it out and listen to what successful entrepreneurs and philanthropists have to say!
