9. An Entrepreneurial Approach to Education with Heidi DeCoux

How an entrepreneur dreamt up a bold vision for a new education system and how she's turning it into reality.   Heidi DeCoux is a serial entrepreneur that has built and sold multiple businesses and appeared in publications like Forbes. But more recently, the thing that keeps her up at night, is trying to figure out how to revolutionize the public school system.  Heidi and her husband founded a non-profit organization, called Illuminated Life School with the first school opening in Puerto Rico.   We talk about her vision for the organization, the challenges she's faced in launching it and the innovative experiments she's working on.   My goal with the podcast is to bring you a variety of perspectives and approaches to creating an education system centered on people and the planet. Heidi brings a newcomer's lens and bold dreams to the issue. I hope this episode inspires the dreamer in you!   Links Mentioned: Illuminated Life Schools Socials: Facebook | Instagram | LinkedIn Connect with Heidi on Instagram and her website   Follow Najia on LinkedIn
