How can we inspire our youth to become more self-reliant through entrepreneurship? Our guest is Ryan Lee.

Ryan Lee, I Built it Foundation

Ryan Lee is an internet marketer, former school teacher, and founder of the I Built It Foundation. His intention is to bring entrepreneurship back to our schools and our communities by educating our youth about real-world entrepreneurship, with a heavy focus on technology, digital business and businesses with low start-up costs... Businesses that just require some sweat and effort (not millions of dollars in venture capital).

There are many myths about entrepreneurship -- and one is that you must be either heavily funded or connected. But their guest entrepreneurs are "in the trenches" and can reveal the type of wisdom gained through years of real-world ups and downs.

It's sharing the journey with our youth that can make an immediate impact. That, coupled with real instruction, is a powerful one-two combination which cannot be replicated in the text books.
