Nellie Jacobs interviews Neil Doctorow: PEAC School For Elite Athletes. How does a person who was an elementary and high school student with multiple suspensions and expulsions grow up to become co-founder and managing director of an elite athletes' private school? How did he manage to leave the public school system only to be kicked out of an alternative school? What factors turned this failing student into an "A" university honours graduate? What insights did he learn about himself? Why did he become a teacher? Why did he keep quitting his teaching jobs in the public school system? What motivated him to start his own private school? These are only some of the many questions Neil Doctorow addresses in this week's episode. Neil candidly speaks about the rocky road of education he travelled that eventually led him to this point in time. He talks about his learning difficulties and how he overcame them, his educator parents and their influence upon him - and what impacted his personal and professional experiences and decisions along the way. Neil generously shares ten points outlining what he has learned about running a business.
