Sunday Times: Unedited Interview Transcript

February 2nd, 2021|

Jordan, Mikhaila, and the Interviewer:

Jordan 00:00

Well, thank you for being patient. I know we’ve put you off for a long time. That couldn’t be helped. But I’m actually very happy to be doing this. And I was, weirdly enough, I didn’t expect it, but I was looking forward to it.

Audition Now to be a 2020 Peterson Fellow at Acton School of Business

January 7th, 2020|

Just before the Christmas break, the 2019 Peterson Fellows stood before a room of 158 successful entrepreneurs to tell the story of their “Next Great Adventure” in life. This marked the end of their time at Acton, and was a declaration of the direction they would take in the months that followed. Completing a program ranked by Princeton Review as having “the most competitive students” in America (seven years running), and presenting to this caliber of audience, are noteworthy demonstrations of courage …
