‘In Order for Your Dream to Happen, First You Have to Wake Up’


In this episode of Behind the Brand, Bryan Elliott asks Wyclef Jean for his advice to young entrepreneurs.

“A lot of people are like, ‘Whatever you dream, then it can happen.’ I believe in order for the dream to happen, you have to wake up from the dream,” he says.

Whatever it is you want to create, do it because it’s your passion—and pay no attention to what the critics think or say.

“Make sure that you’re an innovator, and when everyone goes right, the only people that win are the people that go left,” he says. “We are the ones that understand, because our natural passion, whatever we do, is not for the money. We do it because we’re trying to move the human race forward.”
