Terry Shubkin is Chief Excitement Officer at Young Enterprise which is focused on "Inspiring Students. Unleashing Leaders."  In this interview we hear about her life journey and what led her to taking on that role.  I really enjoyed hearing about her background and interesting journey and lessons learned when making life decisions ("what's the worst that could happen?") as well as the work being done to promote enterprise among high school students.  We also talk about the shift in focus over time among students who are increasingly interested in the impact their companies will have.  With thousands of alumni who have been through the programme there is now a lasting legacy of businesses whose CEOs first learned about business through YES.
