A bright, ambitious, energetic, charming entrepreneur, Pawan Murthy invited me to speak to his first installment of The PEP Talks.

Pawan (pronounced “PUH-ven”, like “oven”) has designed The PEP Talks as a series of speaking showcases with local professionals who
are passionate about what they do and are eager to share their wisdom
to students. (“PEP” stands for Passion, Experience, People.)

The guidelines: offer three lessons — and be brief about it. There were five speakers during the hour.

So here’s eight minutes. Hope you like it.

I’m really grateful to Pawan. And to Brainstorm Media and Doug Winenger for the thoughtful editing.
