TEDxHarkerSchool - Rahim Fazal - How Getting Fired From McDonalds Changed My Life

Entrepreneur and Speaker Rahim Fazal considers it a person's duty to always stretch personal limits and therefore grow as a human being. Certainly he has put that belief into practice throughout most of his life. At a young age, he is already a successful businessman, an MBA graduate, and a frequent and popular speaker. Passionately willing to take calculated and essential risks in order to achieve his visions, Rahim quietly created an online business while still in high school, negotiated its sale during his Senior year, and then spent two years building a second company and ultimately taking it public. Most recently, Rahim completed his MBA at Canada's top management school, the Richard Ivey School of Business. Because of his achievements, he was the youngest student in the school's 80 year history accepted without a prerequisite university degree. Rahim is a frequent and popular speaker to high school and college students across the US and Canada. He is also an advisor to the Extreme Entrepreneurship Education Corporation in New York City, an organization helping young people realize the value of pursuing entrepreneurship through education and outreach.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
