5:35
couple of different things one is is the
5:37
idea feasible yeah yeah and honestly
5:40
sometimes people have so much passion
5:43
about some crazy things oh no really
5:46
yeah right and and we let him go why
5:49
because that's a learning experience too
5:51
but the but the thing that's probably
5:54
most important is an entrepreneur has to
5:57
be a fantastic learner and if to be a
6:03
fantastic learner number one you have to
6:04
be coachable and if you're not coachable
6:07
it's just gonna be a hard road hmm I'm
6:10
you know people like you aren't gonna
6:12
you know want to mentor them to take a
6:15
look and say hey look it or to be honest
6:17
with them in terms of you know I got to
6:20
tell you that here's the mistakes that I
6:22
made when you bare your soul all of a
6:24
sudden you know you've got to have
6:26
somebody that is willing to listen yeah
6:28
and and so you nailed it that's exactly
6:30
our number one criteria is is this
6:33
person coachable
6:34
and I'm not saying in any way shape or
6:37
form that you shouldn't be passionate
6:39
and you shouldn't be headstrong oh you
6:41
have to be right I mean a high
6:44
performance environment yeah you have to
6:46
be thick-skinned you're gonna fail
6:48
there's no reason to worry about failing
6:50
failing means you're doing something
6:51
you're moving forward you know if the
6:53
people who are scared to tell somebody
6:55
or they're embarrassed to say it didn't
6:57
work that's not business that's not
6:58
moving forward you know I'd say my dad's
7:01
a Marine fighter pilot and I grew up
7:03
under this guys that you know skiing and
7:06
doing you know athletic events and my
7:08
dad I'll never forget I fell my brother
7:12
was skiing all day and he came back to
7:15
the to the car and he said I didn't fall
7:17
once and I said I scattered all over the
7:20
all over the place and my dad said if
7:22
you're not falling you're not advancing
7:24
mm-hmm and I thought that's one to take
7:27
with with me so that's a good one that's
7:30
true it's exactly right what I love
7:32
again about what you're talking about
7:33
and what this facility does it gives the
7:36
people and you said it earlier a safe
7:38
environment to not only learn but to
7:40
fail because everyone is experiencing
7:42
the same thing because resources aren't
7:44
just about money you know everybody says
7:45
all my resources are running out you
7:47
have time their resources your people
7:49
the people you're meeting with
7:50
everything is a resource that has to be
7:52
managed correctly as you said or you're
7:54
wasting your time
7:55
yeah we have some really amazing people
7:58
that come up here and volunteer I mean
8:01
you know the three of you you're here I
8:04
mean you're doing great amazing things
8:07
for the American Dreams Academy and
8:09
that's it but now you're intrigued right
8:11
and and and now I can get you to come
8:14
back here in a meaningful way and say I
8:16
have these three entrepreneurs and you
8:19
can come back and and you can help them
8:20
and and and it's the most important
8:23
thing is entrepreneurs who have been in
8:27
the game really in the game they know
8:30
and and it's it's Karma
8:32
you know I know that I have to pay this
8:35
back because I know that one I wasn't
8:37
the brightest one on the but brightest
8:41
bulb but I know one thing is there are a
8:44
lot of really cool people that helped me
8:46
along the way yeah
8:47
and I gotta be part of that no no
8:49
without being the brightest bulb isn't
8:50
the thing that you need to be you know
8:52
there's no doubt about the experience as
8:54
you said open to learning is very very
8:57
important and then to implement what
8:59
you've learned is super I mean if you
9:01
can't implement what you learned isn't
9:03
you're wasting yeah absolutely in them
9:05
and you know fortunately the University
9:09
of Tampa dr. Vaughn president of the
9:12
university the Dean of the Sykes College
9:15
of Business
9:16
you know dr. white is she's you know
9:19
renowned they looked and they said hey
9:22
you know we need to get better at our
9:24
curriculum in teaching this the research
9:26
in entrepreneurship isn't that deep but
9:29
we need to get a little bit better just
9:31
teaching it and and so you know a guy
9:34
with a doctorate in education is now
9:35
teaching in the College of Business at
9:38
the University of Tampa I mean you know
9:39
highly regarded you know top 100 in the
9:43
world University and that's
9:45
entrepreneurial right I mean if you're
9:47
gonna take a chance on somebody take a
9:49
chance and then go for it and we were
9:52
able to win I mean you know from our
9:56
constituents an organization called uses
9:59
be the Nasdaq Award for entrepreneurial
10:04
excellence we've put together one of the
10:07
things that were most proud of is a
10:09
program that was recognized as the best
10:11
curriculum for undergraduate education
10:14
that's big as voted on by our peers so
10:18
and and it was amazing so yeah we're
10:22
we're we're doing some neat things but
10:25
we're not doing it alone we're doing it
10:27
in the you know the region of of Tampa
10:29
Bay our community is fantastic working
10:34
with partners like HSN it's yeah yeah
10:37
it's really a cool thing yeah and I
10:39
gotta say that it to me it's working as
10:41
I was coming in and I had visited a few
10:43
weeks ago and I spoke with some of the
10:45
students and if I had closed my eyes I
10:48
would have thought these were seasoned
10:50
business guys entrepreneurs the
10:52
information I asked questions the
10:54
answers that they gave me I was just
10:55
like these are students you know it was
10:57
amazing and my partner Rick was here our
11:00
producers
11:01
I just mean we were all in all of the
11:04
knowledge experience how they presented
11:06
themselves which is huge it really was
11:08
great it was a great experience
11:09
yeah we have a fantastic group of
11:11
students and it's like anything you know
11:14
art though the students that are part
11:16
and engaged up here so many of us you
11:20
know have been through the experience of
11:21
formal undergraduate education and we
11:23
look back and we said you know I could
11:25
have gotten a lot more out of it yeah
11:27
yeah there's probably a lot of listeners
11:30
there also but the reality is is here
11:35
I'm like anywhere else if we put
11:38
fantastic people in front of our our
11:40
students they engage and when they
11:44
engage both the fantastic person and our
11:49
student get a lot out of it yeah and
11:51
that's so it's the difference yeah
11:53
that's the difference and I know we're
11:55
kind of running out of time I got of
11:56
just a few minutes left and I really
11:58
want to get into some of the things that
11:59
you teach which to me are paramount in
12:02
any business you know systems repeatable
12:05
programs things that are needed in
12:07
business and and maybe one of these days
12:08
we can get you back on the show and
12:09
really get into that because the things
12:12
that you teach are really important for
12:14
almost every business I'm like oh
12:16
there's no question in fact one thing
12:19
that we've done here is is my business
12:21
was really good in this area called
12:23
competency modeling and so we did it in
12:27
the Air Force we did it Toyota many many
12:30
years ago and it's just this notion that
12:32
if you if you understand what makes
12:34
somebody successful when
12:35
entrepreneurship there's a lot of really
12:37
you know it's you can't just pinpoint
12:39
one particular thing so we created a
12:42
competency model from successful
12:44
entrepreneurs so it has competencies it
12:47
has abilities and then has behaviors and
12:48
then what dr. white and dr. vaughn
12:51
wanted me to do was to link those things
12:54
from the real world
12:55
mhm what worked and what didn't and why
12:58
didn't it and then when were you
13:00
leveraging communication versus you know
13:04
market awareness when were you doing
13:06
there's a ticker things and we linked
13:08
all of that to our curriculum not only
13:12
are just the undergraduate and
13:14
curriculum the courses but we linked it
13:17
specifically to some of the activities
13:19
like being part of the Entrepreneurship
13:20
Club like giving a pitch these are the
13:24
things that we and it comes from the
13:27
real world things that matter right I
13:29
mean you know theory is important
13:32
there's no question
13:33
right but when I leave and I understand
13:36
finance well that's one thing but then I
13:39
can come into this room and talk to a
13:41
venture capitalist who says well that's
13:44
great but that's not how it's done
13:46
priceless yeah you're exactly right now
13:49
now we teach what how it's done with the
13:54
education behind it and that's that's
13:56
the power yeah both of those together
13:57
and obviously it's working because no
13:59
doubt about it and you get to work in
14:00
such an awesome tomato it really is
14:03
well dr. Moore thank you so much for
14:05
stopping by I know you're busy and maybe
14:07
we can get you again and get you back on
14:08
the show again and go more deep into the
14:10
curriculum and really talk to people
14:12
about it because I think it could be
14:13
very helpful well I hope to have you
14:15
