Debt Free Degree + How Great Leaders Inspire Action

I always leave our shows wishing they were longer.

Today we talked about Debt Free Higher Education. and the Pay it Forward Plan. With this plan, 1.5% of income for community college, and 3% for universities for 20 years will "pay forward" the cost of instruction for the next generation of students. DEBT FREE DEGREE!

Brilliant right? Well, we will be joining a large wave of other countries like:
AlgeriaArgentinaBhutanCubaDenmarkEgyptEstoniaFinlandFranceGreeceItalyIndiaMaltaMauritiusMoroccoNorwayOmanPakistan, Saudi ArabiaScotlandSpainSri LankaTrinidad and TobagoTurkeyBarbadosKenyaUnited Arab EmiratesUruguay, Australia, SwedenDenmark (students also get paid to study...! ), Brazil (at all levels, including post-doctorate and PhDs), etc..

There will be a pilot program to test this, but after this free / abundant education gets rolling, we will still have work to do on free / abundant shelter, food, water; communication, energy; healthcare, and freedom.

We also played a Ted Talk by Simon Sinek about "How Great Leaders Inspire Action". This is in my top 5 TED talks, and will probably stick with you for life... always know, and be able to explain "Why" you do things.

Songs Played:
Sun is Shining - Bob Marley
None of us are Free - Solomon Burke & Blind Boys of Alabama
