Know what you are good at, and what you are not good at.
Basil Kuloba used his experience with math and science to develop a much-needed nonprofit organization, INERTIA, which has quickly become the largest after school program in Escambia County Florida. Basil joins Janet on the show today to share his story of blending his passion and entrepreneurial skills to start a successful organization.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- How do interaction and connection improve learning outcomes?
- What was the biggest obstacle Basil faced while building a successful organization?
- What qualities or skills create a successful entrepreneur?
Basil Kuloba | UWF Graduate '18 The Outside Force. Before we sat down for his interview, I called Basil prior to learn more about his background and what motivates his efforts behind INERTIA. What I found was someone who is the very definition of inspiring. Basil’s brainchild is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that provides fun, hands-on group projects to increase STEM skills and the success of students in Escambia County.
Have you ever tried to write with your non-dominant hand? The result is usually a squiggly mess and the effort is certainly not a productive use of time or energy. Asking our team members to operate outside of their natural strengths produces the same type of results. Maximizing the strengths of our team members sets the entire organization up for success.
