Today's interview is with Michelle Jones, a woman that exemplifies inspiration and courage. I was honored to host her in my home for this conversation where we had an intimate discussion about her journey as a Ph.D in traditional universities across the country to the creation of her own university -- The Wayfinding Academy.
In this conversation we explore Michelle's mission and vision for the future of education. her experience as a TEDx Organizer, and her title of Magician for the World Domination Summit.
If you're working in education at any capacity, this is a must listen. You'll hear why Michelle is dedicated to going a year without salary so that employees of The Wayfinding Academy can earn a good wage. You'll also be inspired by her commitment to serving students in higher education so that they are empowered to find their true, authentic way with the support of a powerful community.
Michelle Jones is a former traditional model college professor who is starting her own college, The Wayfinding Academy. Her 16 years teaching leadership and organizational behavior courses at colleges and universities across the country has prepared her well to re-imagine what higher education can be with this new endeavor. She is also drawing on her experience organizing events and communities with TEDxMtHood and the World Domination Summit and founding non-profit organizations such as SuperThank.
I hope you enjoy!
