Overview of SKIP A STEP

So many young people are programmed from an early age to go to school, get good grades, attend college, and then hope for a good-paying job. This used to be the “safe” approach to obtaining a successful life. But every once in awhile, a maverick like Mark Zuckerberg, comes along and bucks the trend. This person doesn’t play it safe. Instead, they take risks. Perhaps they drop out of school. They put their heart and soul into building a company that has never existed before, offering a crucial product or service that no one else is providing. By doing something so disruptive and wholly original, they attain success on their terms. As a culture we celebrate these gutsy individualists as entrepreneurs.
