The Mistaken Identity Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3, corporation that was established in 2016. Our focus is to nurture personal development and growth by teaching emotional intelligence awareness and entrepreneur skills.
We understand that entrepreneurship benefits students and learners from different social and economic backgrounds because it teaches people to cultivate unique skills and think outside the box. It also creates opportunity, instills confidence, ensures social justice and stimulates the economy.
When we incorporate our social and emotional intelligence awareness training, we provide our students with the ability to not only start a business but maintain a successful venture by translating frustrations, emotions, and fears into a productive lifestyle. The intent is to help remove barriers and obstacles that may hinder the success of their business.
Entrepreneurship education serves as an excellent foundation for the types of creative, innovative ideas we need to succeed in the 21st century.
