Eagles are working in teams to write, produce and sell a “bestselling book” in less than nine weeks. A daunting challenge.
Launching the challenge several weeks ago was entrepreneur Clint Greenleaf, whose experimentation as an author led to building a self-publishing empire.
Today entrepreneur Yuen Yung, famous for securing $1 million for his How Do You Roll sushi empire on Shark Tank, arrived to hear publishing pitches from the Eagles.
As requested, Yuen was tough, peppering the Eagles with questions about customers and Unit Economics. The performances were – shall we say – uneven. Eagles know they have a lot of work to do in the next month. But they were brave enough to pitch, and that matters a lot.
Afterwards Yuen said: “Wow. I would have never been able to do that at their age.”
We bet he could have – at Acton Academy.
The Eagles take on the Shark Tank – and live to fight another day!
