Steve Mariotti: NFTE's Teacher Training -- The Key to the Replication of Entrepreneurial Education, Part 2: Raising the Money
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
To read part 1, click here. In August of 1987, I decided to write to the Forbes 400 to raise money for NFTE, which was now a not-for-profit. I remember Janet helped me edit the letter and came in early to sit with me at the table to handwrite the letters to each of the Forbes 400. Out of that mailing came my meeting with Ray Chambers on November 23, 1987. Ray became our first donor and I immediately hired Janet as the office manager. Edie, Janet and I would talk about Edie's film career. One night, we all went to see Edie in her first film role which portrayed the relationship of some young people to the Hasidic Jewish community. We all were so proud of Edie, although the film did not work. Once we got the first check, we opened an office at 6 Jones Street, but the neighbors complained and we moved to 173 West 23rd Street where we had an office on the top floor. Chris Meenan joined NFTE full-time in July of 1988 and we spent the summer travelling and teaching ...

Carnie Wilson’s Weight Loss Surgery Derails Wilson Phillips Tour
The Inquisitor - almost 5 years
The announcement that Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson was undergoing a second weight-loss surgery in addition to the widely covered one she had several years ago got the original girl group back in the headlines just ahead of their reunion tour and the debut of TV Guide reality show Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On. Wilson’s struggle with weight is for better or worse one of the more notable things about the band- the singer even appeared on Celebrity Fit Club a few years back in an attempt to take off some of the weight she gained during her two pregnancies. But while the on and off struggle is usually a publicity boon for the band, Wilson revealed during the most recent episode that because of her ongoing recovery, she doesn’t foresee being able to perform for some of the band’s upcoming gigs. Bandmates Chynna Phillips and Wendy Wilson visited Carnie while she recovered, asking whether she planned on performing in New Orleans. Wilson hedged, finally answering: “I’m not ...

Talking bowl cuts and bad hair with Chynna Phillips
Tampa Bay - almost 5 years
The memory is so clear. I was about 8 years old and had decided to be very fashion-forward and cut my hair into the shape of a bowl. Imagine a bowl made out of blond hair flipped upside down, and you'd have me. One day, I went bowling with my cousins and stepped up to the counter to ask for shoes. I told the clerk my size, and she turned around and handed me the biggest pair of bowling shoes my young eyes had ever seen. "I said size three," I told her. "Yeah," she said. "Size three boys." I'd like to tell you I had an empowering moment of clarity about the power of gender roles in our society, but I really just felt like crap. "I'm a girl," I said. She looked horrified and gave me the right shoes. In that same bowling alley, a music video played on the televisions. It was Wilson Phillips. Chynna Phillips, clad in the most stylish high-waisted denim and brown leather vest, sitting atop a mountain, then preening in a black dress on the sandy shore, blond hair in the shape of ...
