What Will the World Lose if You Fail? - Ask Matt: Live from Jerusalem, Israel

Hey everybody. It’s Matt Alberto here, and I’m live in Jerusalem, Israel.

My plane just touched down a few hours ago and it’s in the wee hours of the morning right now.

It’s 1:30 am. My flight was 12 hours long but what I wanted to do was just touch base with you and show you the view from where I’m staying at the moment.

Back there, that’s Jerusalem.

It’s actually quite cold right now, and I’ve got a bit of a cough, but I’m still going to push through.

I’m here for the next couple of days and it’s going to be very exciting, so stay tuned as we check out different social entrepreneurs from across Israel. We’ll also explore the culture and discover what kind of good and cool things are people doing in this part of the world.

While I’m here and as I’ve touched down, I wanted to do a quick Ask Matt session, and I wanted to do it live via video cam and I thought it would be interesting with Jerusalem in the background.

It’s interesting as well as we move towards the next couple of days as we have an adventure together across Jerusalem and Israel for social entrepreneurship.

So the question for today is: “What will the world lose if I fail?”

So someone was actually asking that from their point of view. The question is essentially, “What would the world lose if you failed at social entrepreneurship?”
