“Entrepreneurs find a way to make things work, no matter the obstacles. That's a great lesson for us all, especially now,” says Gergen, who brings a variety of perspectives to the field of social innovation and entrepreneurship. In addition to holding a professorship at Duke, he serves as the executive director of Bull City Forward and also co-authored Life Entrepreneurs: Ordinary People Creating Extraordinary Lives. Listen to Gergen in a discussion of how being an entrepreneur is about proving that the impossible is plausible.
