The Third Draft has multiple facets. In a nutshell; it’s an educational program that bridges the gap between school and life. Our focus is the concept of removing business from the world of entrepreneurism and exploring what’s left. While the act of entrepreneurism is associated to business, the Third Draft is more about what goes on in an entrepreneur’s mind, and how you can apply that to all facets of your life.
Curriculum reflects a business platform, but it doesn’t focus on business tactics. It’s more about the concept of “thinking” like an entrepreneur. It’s about adopting an entrepreneur’s mentality.
Curriculum includes problem solving, identifying fears, overcoming personal challenges, creative thinking, seeing things different, creating personal habits (or breaking old ones), and working through personal and/or emotional challenges. Life is a presentation, whether you’re dating or getting a speeding ticket, so there’s a lot of speaking and “presentation” skills. It’s not classes with tests, it’s more about “here’s how you can apply this information to multiple areas of your life.”
The goal: Most people turn 65 dead, broke, and/or dependant on family or charity in their older years. Our goal is to reduce that percentage by teaching people to “Think like an entrepreneur” in all facets of their life.
“Nothing in the form of classes is available online. We’re not focused on “digital” in the form of webinars and podcasts, though this will be part of the system. Our foundational efforts are going into what the human race needs to survive, and one thing we’re lacking, and something we NEED to survive as a species, is to be better connected as people. Personal presentation skills, interacting with people, communication skills and abilities, reading body language, discovering and engaging our fears, etc. The “future” is not digital. We have digital. The future is connecting people and getting back in touch with what makes us do what we do. Push buttons all you like, but if you learn how to interact with people, and learn how to think like an entrepreneur, and you’ll win every time!”
Founder, Third Draft
The name “Third Draft” comes from the concept of writing a speech. A first draft is rough notes, the second is ready to talk about, but that Third Draft delivers a message that reaches people on an emotional level. It’s something they don’t just hear. They FEEL it.
In life, our first draft would include school, figuring out who we are and what we want to do, dating, and discovering new things. The second draft of our life is about making career choices, deciding who you want to spend your life with, where you want to live, and what you believe. You start on a path of where you want to go.
The Third Draft is when you go from good to great, and create character within yourself that will prevent you from being a statistic where most turn 65 dead, broke, and/or dependant on government or charity in older years.
Don’t let your life be a second draft.
