Carl Schramm, “The Evangelist of Entrepreneurship,” on the Proven Formula for Success

‘Burn the Business Plan’ Tells the Stories of Successful Entrepreneurs in a Variety of Fields

[Listen and Profit Now™]

The Economist magazine once described Carl J. Schramm as “The Evangelist of Entrepreneurship.” Professor Schramm earned the moniker during the decade he was the president of the $2 billion Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, which is among the largest private foundations in America, working to help entrepreneurs succeed.

These days Professor Schramm writes about entrepreneurship and teaches at Syracuse University, one of only 16 members of the faculty since 1870 to be given the prestigious, at-large title of University Professor.

This week Professor Schramm conducts a Master’s Class in entrepreneurship exclusively for host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, using the professor’s new book – Burn the Business Plan: What Great Entrepreneurs Really Do – as assigned reading.

Think you need an MBA to be a business success? Think again. Professor Schramm says that the proven path to business success is one of passion, determination, and a willingness to experiment and innovate. Class is starting right now.

In high school and college, Ruben Gonzalez displayed hardly a lick of athletic talent. Yet he dreamed of becoming an Olympian and being counted among the elite athletes of the world.

That he did.

From benchwarmer to record holder, Ruben made courage and perseverance his mantra, and went on to become the only Olympic athlete ever to compete in four Olympic games in four different decades – most recently in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, at age 47.

These days Ruben is a much-in-demand corporate speaker and author, translating his strategies for success from the icy luge track to the fast-paced, often icy business and career world.

Reputation coach and host Dean Rotbart recently visited with Ruben at his home near the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Hear Dean’s gold-medal report this week on Monday Morning Radio.
