Most powerful tool for your startup and growth

Ever since Ben Franklin pulled together a group of his friends back in 1727, the phenomenal growth of the United States of America has been fueled by what until recently was one of our most American of institutions. What is it?

Small independent peer self-directed learning groups.

Ben Franklin writes about that first little band of brothers in his famous autobiography. 

They called themselves the Junto. 

We'll be writing here about that first small group here each day over the next week or so, and a Google+ Hangout will be available for those who'd like to discuss what is said here about them.

Stay tuned.
