Michael Montgomery, a 19-year-old serial entrepreneur from Idaho, is creating a scholarship fund inspired by The Go-Giver. Says Michael:
“In my efforts to apply the Go-Giver philosophies more fully to my life and business, I’m establishing this long-winded title to a soon-to-exist scholarship: the Montgomery Enterprises LLC Scholarship for Aspiring Young Entrepreneurs.”
Applicants for the scholarship will be required to read five books, including The Go-Giver; Rich Dad, Poor Dad; If You Think You Can, You Can (for Teens) and two others — and then submit an essay on how they’ve applied the principles in the books in their own lives.
To fund the scholarship, he’s putting aside a portion of proceeds from a set of national vending machine placements, and proceeds from sales of a calendar based on his own photographs of scenes in his local Gem County, Idaho. (He’s also considering turning the calendar into a competition for local photographers.)
Now that’s creative entrepreneurship!
