We’re all entrepreneurs now

By Timothy Cocks Education for all 02 Dec 2015

Alain de Botton is awesome. A philosopher and writer, he has written awesome books on architecture, atheism, work and airports. In 2008 he and some friends set up the School of Life – “a place to step back and think intelligently about central emotional concerns.” The SoL produce some great content, and this little clip, voiced by Alain (he’s very easy on the ear) grabbed my attention:

“In our eyes, at the heart of successful entrepeneurship lies something oddly more abstract – an accurate insight into the causes of human unhappiness.

To be an entrepreneur means essentially to become an expert in the things that make life difficult for people.”

It struck me that therapists are all entrepreneurs by this definition – not the ‘do whatever it takes to make money‘ – kind of entrepreneurs , but kinder, gentler ‘finding bold ideas to reduce human distress‘ entrepreneurs.
