Launched in 2012 as The 4 Essentials of Entrepreneurial Thinking

Taking listeners on a street-smart journey through life, mentors, and business, Cliff proposes a radical shift in global education and career training. He also provides thought-provoking stories on The 4 Essentials (mindset, strategies, values, purpose) that dispel myths on how we define and create success. Through trials and triumphs, Cliff shares lessons from the edge as a dyslexic student who challenged the status quo in college, dropped out of USC at 19, and went on to launch companies in real estate, finance, education, and technology (all before age 30). Drawing on over 100 famous mentors, from Socrates, Edison, and da Vinci to Oprah, Malala, Branson, and Mycoskie, Cliff empowers each of us to earn a real-world MBA (master's in basic abilities). This is a fun, fast-paced listen for anyone in search of passion, purpose, and results!
