Byron Reese had a goal: to speak at a TED conference. He achieved it.
He is an entrepreneur. He has started several companies. One of them, “Expert Village,” he sold to eHow. He had two ideas (pre-YouTube). “First, bandwidth will get cheaper. Second, Americans don’t like to read.” The result: Expert Village. It is a video-based “how to” site.
In his TED speech, he discusses biographies of great achievers. They had one characteristic feature. Watch it to find out what it was.
This is a great video for teenagers.
