Jack’s passion is to provide kids the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship and share his experience and journey; and the stories of the great young entrepreneurs that Jack works with to inspire kids to find something they are interested in, to “Just Do It”, whether that’s a business, non-profit or life pursuit. He believes that kids can do literally anything and that there are many kids today who are better role models, outside of their parents, teachers, mentors to inspire direction and confidence; than today’s entertainment, sports, social media stars or political figures.
