It was July of 2014, and I was enjoying the kickoff BBQ in the backyard of Matt Candler’s house for the ninth cohort of the Launch Program. Matt is the CEO of 4.0 Schools in New Orleans. I will never forget the powerful sense of community I felt in the air that afternoon as Matt spoke. “We are not worried about what it is you are building now,” Matt shared, “we are concerned about the 20-year version of who you are to become.” I was surrounded by an incredible group of people from all across the country, united by a shared passion to positively impact education.

The Magic Hour

The startup journey has taught us many lessons over the last seven years, including that nothing is more powerful than the importance of human connection. Connections, which can happen in a moment, influence critical decisions like where to attend college, what passions to pursue for a career, and what relationships to engage. Inspired by Welcome To College, this weekly web series explores the power of human connection and the sacred threads of life operating at every given moment of time. It is created to inspire campus tour guides in their roles as leaders who are making a positive impact on the lives of prospective students and families daily. We believe a single sentence spoken at the right time can change someone's life forever.
