Bringing entrepreneurship education to low-income youth...

Goodbye Homeboy: How My Students Drove Me Crazy and Inspired a Movement by Steve Mariotti is a poignant, emotive and humorous memoir of his career as a special ed teacher in New York City’s most dangerous public high schools during the early 1980s. The author demonstrates how he managed to engage with low-income youth in education, equipping them with the necessary skills to help raise them out of poverty. He has influenced and changed the lives of millions of people worldwide.

We all have abilities that we can use to make a difference in someone's life. It could be to just let them know that they are important and to be sure to say or convey in some way these simple words, "YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE." The point is to keep the thought of MAKING A DIFFERENCE foremost in your mind as you go about your day. However, this book takes that basic principle to a whole different level! It was a great read. Highly recommended.
