Enabling boldness

It’s no secret that the education system is failing.

For highly motivated individuals, this doesn’t matter so much. There’s the old Mark Twain quote…

I never let my schooling get in the way of my education.

The more I reflect on education and watch in horror at the classes of apathetic and clueless masses spill into a job market that doesn’t exist, the more I grow concerned for this generation.

What’s needed is a radical rethinking of what education looks like, and for everyone to care a lot more.

I think Amber Rae cares.

Either that or she’s completely crazy, but I’m not sure that the distinction matters.

Amber recently announced The Bold Academy which is perhaps her most audacious adventure to date. I had the pleasure of working with Amber last year for The Domino Project where she served as the Chief Evangelist.

During Domino, Amber launched The Passion Experiment, which helps people get “unstuck.” Smart people. People like you.

And The Bold Academy is a more fully-realized version of the Passion Experiment.

The Bold Academy is 4-week experience designed to help college students and recent grads find clarity, build confidence, and unlock their full potential. If you want to do big things to “change the world” but aren’t sure how to get started, we’re creating this for you.

I’m not sure anyone is better at what she does than Amber is.

So if The Bold Academy looks like something that you’re terrified to apply to, then you should almost certainly throw your hat in the ring.
