"Pivoting isn't Plan B: It's part of the process." - Jeff Goins
--
After almost a week of group planning centered around their main business venture idea...things changed drastically this morning when students found out during class that their desired venue would not be available for any date this semester.

Our crew of 26 is quickly learning their best method of communicating with each other. They split into 4 groups to "regroup" and launched into discussions on how they would pivot their class business venture.

A class day that started out with disappointing news quickly blossomed into new opportunities and ideas, ending in an exciting twist and new trajectory. This ability to adapt, pivot and transition is an imperative skill for our students to develop!

Over the next 2 days, students will refine their plan, form committees and prepare to give a soft pitch of their idea to the CEO Board of Directors and several community members this Thursday! Stay tuned -- magic is happening 😉
