After co-founding Praxis, I’ve had dozens of high school aged students from all walks of life ask me what they can start learning and doing now to help prepare them for professional success in the real world.
School today offers them few resources for this.
While they can learn a lot in their science, history and math classes, they are by and large short changed when it comes to building the foundations of a successful professional life.
But this kind of learning is essential.
Young people today graduate high school with an accumulation of facts and experiences but little understanding of how to put these into practice in the real world. This disconnect between content consumption and content creation has left them disenfranchised with education as a whole.
And who can blame them?
School is boring. It’s uninspiring. And it’s unproductive.
We started Praxis to address this at the college level but as we’ve grown our network these last few years, we’ve realized that there are thousands of 14-18 year olds across the country who want to jumpstart their professional lives even earlier.
Today I’m excited to be able to announce the launch of the Praxis Teen Entrepreneurship Course.
We created this two month course for entrepreneurial teenagers who want more than the standard menu of educational options offered to them today. Through daily lessons and exercises, participants will finish the course equipped with the knowledge, skills, and experiences to lay the foundation for a fulfilling professional life.
Here’s some of what we’ve got waiting inside:
Module 1: Learning and Living Purposefully
- The difference between learning and schooling and how to overcome the schooled mindset
- How to take yourself and your ideas seriously
- Thinking critically about your passions
Module 2: Mastering Self-Knowledge and Motivation
- How to do things all the way.
- How to be more than your work.
Module 3: Building Your Personal Brand
- How to build your own blog
- Creating your own digital signal
- Telling your story the right way
Module 4: Unlocking the Hidden Entrepreneurial Mindsets
- Taking failure like an entrepreneur
- How to build social capital
- The entrepreneurial value of philosophic thinking
Module 5: The 30-Day Personal Development Project
- Write more than you’ve ever written before
- Build a digital presence online
- Showcase your learning
- Create the foundations of a successful portfolio

Here’s what others have to say about the the course and the Praxis program:
“As an entrepreneur, my dad has always encouraged me to gain experience outside of the classroom. This course has been a game-changer for me as I embark on my own path toward entrepreneurship.”
– Austin Zitting, 15
“My Praxis education experience has been fantastic. In high school, I always felt a disconnect between what I learned in school and what I needed to learn to start my life off well. Praxis makes a strong connection between the two.”
– Nick Tucker, 19 (Praxis Participant)
“I have always been a “do-er.” Sure I enjoy sitting around to contemplate ideas and talk in abstracts, but getting work done and solving problems is what I love to do. A Praxis education experience embodies getting work done. This course is the ideal experience to prepare a teen for a life of entrepreneurship.”
– Tamina Zaheri, 21 (Praxis Participant)
