We Change Lives

A few years ago, we found three recent graduates of Wash U in St. Louis. 

Like most millennials, they didn't know what they wanted to do, but they knew what they didn't want to do.

They didn't want to have boring lives.

Unfortunately, it seemed they were on the fast track to living death.

When we met them, two of them were working on Wall Street -  12 hour days in a cubicle.  The third was working as a teacher in the Bronx.

But we had a different idea for them.

We would teach them to shoot, edit and produce video on their own - and then, we would send them on The Mongol Rally, an 11,000 mile drive from London to Ulan Bator - filming the whole way.

They did it!  

And it went so well, that we sent them off on a second trip to drive from NY to the southern tip of South America, again filming all the way.

When they came back, they were not going to go back to the bank. Instead they formed a video production company and today they're busy making videos, both on their own, and for corporate clients like Grub Hub.

We gave them the skills.

They had the drive.

Worldwide, video is a $1.73 Trillion dollar a year business, bigger than Big Oil.

You can't start your own oil well from your living room, but you CAN start your own video production busiiness.

All you need are the skills.

And that's what we do. 

Every day.

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
