Transforming Dreams into Education for the Future! by Luis Vicente Garcia

Trish McCarthy

When you visit StarShine Academy in one of the hardest hit areas in Phoenix, AZ you immediately understand that it has been a process to transform the single most important element for our future: our children through education!

A K-12 school focused on the principles and values that kids and children need to learn for today’s world which of course will include how they dedicate their lives for something meaningful.

When I met Trish McCarthy over three years ago she talked so passionately about the kids and teenagers they were teaching at StarShine that when I had the opportunity I went for a visit (walls are painted in Disney ® Blue!) and I had the incredible chance to talk to the seniors and juniors who amazingly were from different countries and were not going through the best of times; but that all changed in StarShine. In Trish’s words: “Our non-profit charter school prototype, StarShine Academy, has given us a live, testing model for cutting-edge practices, tools, educational methodologies and technologies.”

Since then, Trish and so many incredible individuals have started new and incredible ideas and initiatives to promote further education. Listen to the interview with Trish and learn about the X-Prize to end illiteracy and the Vatican document on Education Sustainability. They are all working together to design the curriculum for the new way of teaching for the future.

About Trish McCarty:

Trish McCarty believes sustainability is determined by what we teach children as humane leaders.  She is a former banker and international consultant, entrepreneur, who formed Education Resources as a government contracting firm in 1999. In 2002 she opened a K-12 charter school, StarShine Academy as a real-time pilot model for what all children deserve to learn about success with academics.

Her inspirational books emphasize her spiritually combined success, with accountability and have been used as the basis for schools and training centers throughout the world. She has been featured on every major network including the Christian channel Trinity Broadcast. Today Trish is best known for establishing StarShine Network, a social network bridging the best people, products and companies to further inspire K-12 education.

A multiple Amazon Best Seller, and most recent, The Soul of Success was a compilation book, with several noteworthy authors including Jack Canfield. Trish lives what she teaches, traveling internationally speaking on life, dreams, kids, relationships and happiness.

Ideas on Productivity!

productivity

Productivity is a key topic in today’s business world. It mixes what you do with how you do it and why you do it. Doing it right is not enough. You also need to do it effectively and efficiently.

Yes of products, services, ideas, projects and all that you and your company do. And of course they all relate to our main theme: PERFORMANCE.

Luis Vicente Garcia speaks at The Global Economic Initiative at the United Nations

Dear Friends, queridos amigos

 

It is my real pleasure to share with you the video of an amazing opportunity I had to speak at the headquarters of the United Nations last June. I was one of the founding members of the Global Economic Initiative where 30 entrepreneurs from seven different countries gathered to speak and discuss about some the issues that are affecting the world of business, education and economics today. It was an incredible event.

 

Luis Vicente Garcia speech at the ‘Global Economic Initiative’ at the United Nations

 

My message was that regardless of our circumstances, you need to be positive, be an optimist and have a strong personal motivation. Once you have these key-ingredients, you will be able to become a better entrepreneur and business owner, have more clarity and see things in a much better way.

 

We cannot leave everything that needs to be fixed to the governments we have in many countries, particularly in Latin America. This is why I call out to the local and regional entrepreneurs to:

 

  1. Be the ‘change factor’ we need to be and want to become;
  2. Generate the initiatives that are needed to empower our people and our teams – basically through training and education; and,
  3. Guide our countries to a higher level of growth and development.

 

We can do this and much more form the private sector and need to start working on these initiatives today, as taking ACTION today is a must.

 

Thanks to the National Association of Experts, Writers and Speakers and to the International Entrepreneur Foundation for such an incredible invitation to speak at this life-changing event on this magnificent institution in New York.
