Lee County resident Jim Griffiths has had successful business ventures since the age of 13 and has decided to use his time and efforts to create a monthly gathering where the community can learn the concept of “Thinking like an Entrepreneur”. The group is a 501(c)(3) and does not focus on business, but rather how an entrepreneur thinks and how this concept can be applied to any facet of life. Griffiths believes America is shifting from the industrial age into an era where people want to be more independent, and nothing can stop them from being a better dentist, student, police officer, or teacher – even better at communication and relationships, when adopting an entrepreneur’s thoughts.
The group consists of high school students and self-made millionaires. Supported by local business sponsors, the meeting is free and complimentary Jets Pizza and soft drinks are served.
Jim Griffiths says “America doesn’t have a consistent system in place to teach people how to win. Most go to work and hope for the best. Our group offers no ra-ra, we present the habits and thoughts of successful entrepreneurs, and the rest is up to your own willingness to work”. Gatherings are monthly on the second Thursday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in S. Cape Coral. Their website has detailed information plus a series of 2-3 minute topic videos for more information.
