WIT - Whatever It Takes

Sarah Hernholm is the Founder/President of WIT - Whatever It Takes. Sarah's focus is on creating platforms for teens to use their voice, launch businesses, and create a sustainable impact in their communities. WIT is the only college-credit social entrepreneur and leadership course for high school teens around the world, motivating teens to launch enterprises designed to change their communities. She also hosts the DO WIT podcast which features teen entrepreneurs from around the world. Most recently Sarah created WIT Community which provides teen leaders and entrepreneurs a virtual place to connect with like-minded peers, find mentorship support, launch business ideas, and get tools to help with personal development. While not everyone will be an entrepreneur, Sarah believes everyone can benefit from living with an entrepreneurial mindset.
