I couldn’t be more excited for everything going on at Praxis right now. Applications are now open for both the Fall 2014-15 and Winter 2015 classes, and great applicants are rolling in. Get in your application as early as you can!
Tomorrow begins the opening seminar for the Winter 2014 class. These participants are brilliant, hard-working, and eager to break the mold and find out what makes them come alive. The seminar is three days of workshops, conversations with entrepreneurs, and engaging with powerful ideas and interesting individuals.
One of the coolest aspects of the seminar is the location. It’s hosted at an amazingly beautiful and unique castle on Sullivan’s Island, SC. The castle was once a church, and a visionary developer rehabbed it and turned it into a lowcountry beach fortress. That developer, Vince Graham, also happens to be the president of Praxis business partner the I’On Group. Vince will join us at the seminar to talk about how he’s merged his life philosophy with his work, and tell us more about the castle and what it means to him. The project was full of unexpected twists, turns, and challenges, forcing the team to adapt their plans. It is in many ways a metaphor for the entrepreneurial journey participants are about to embark on.
We’ll share some photos and highlights of the event, so stay tuned.
