Last week we were fortunate to have an outstanding group of business parents from the city of Guadalajara, Mexico along with their senior high school children from Colegio Liceo del Valle .
This format allows adults and children to be integrated into an educational, fun environment in which each discovers and learns from the other’s reactions. Two worlds so distant and different, that of parents and children, meet and witness the potential of sharing ideas, hard work, helping others, understanding that mistakes are one more step than approaches to success and above all to open our eyes to a new and unknown world whose riches are “easily” adaptable to their own culture and thus favorably change the lives of thousands of people.
Thanks to HPE and the City of Palo Alto for allowing us to enter the place where “Silicon Valley” originated [/ caption]
One of the parents at the closing dinner, a successful businessman and one who is building solid bridges that connect Mexico with Silicon Valley, told the young people: “If you live in the Mexican Silicon Valley, you will it corresponds to be Elon Musk “ challenging the boys to give all their effort to put into practice everything they learned during these 4 days.
The greats were able to see the professional world that their children are going to face and the challenges and competitors that will be on their way.
LESSONS LEARNED BY THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF THE GROUP
1) “It doesn’t matter how much money you have or what family you come from, success can start from scratch.”
