Your Ideas to #FixYoungAmerica | Create Yours!

Forget pricey MBAs. If vets or college kids want to strike out alone, franchises are the way to go.

Go back – to community college. They know local biz and can teach the basics without the huge bill.

Middle America is entrepreneurial too. We need to create communities like Silicon Prairie everywhere!

Better business education! How do we expect people to start businesses if they don’t know how?

Support the crowdfunding bill so we can start businesses WITHOUT credit card debt or bank loans.

Pass the Youth Entrepreneurship Act, forgive entrepreneurs’ student loans – $25K in debt is NUTS!

Improve technology education in schools so our babies can create the next iPhone, not just BUY it!

Don’t just teach academics. Put kids to work in real startups. Now that’s learning!
