Newsletter Seven - June- Theme:  Starting a Business

Here is a question we ask our students in oral exams:

"What would you like to do in the future"?

This is the most common answer we hear, tenfold: 

"Start my own business".

The idea of owning, and running, a start-up is often sold as sailing a boat into a very wide and deep ocean. There is always room for more. It seems, or so we are told, that resources are endless; a pie to be sliced into infinity. But the boat needs to be built first. And tested. And maintained, before any amount of water may be circumnavigated. 

So, this month´s newsletter is about start-ups. The first video is from the amazing Khan Academy (free lessons on-line). The second and third are snippets of advice from two of the most powerful people on the planet, Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Warren Buffet (Coca Cola). 

Enjoy! And share!
