A little backstory
In 2009, Sarah Hernholm left her elementary school teaching days and launched WIT - Whatever It Takes.
She was convinced that a company could be built to provide youth with the tools and skills needed to
become social entrepreneurs and leaders.
10+ years later, WIT is the only college-credit social entrepreneur and leadership course for high school t(w)eens around the world. As Founder/President of WIT, Sarah helps design and launch new WIT
programs, while also hosting a podcast, working 1:1 t(w)eens, giving keynotes, and working with companies and schools on incorporating the 11 Tips for Doing WIT into their workplace. Sarah also created SMART CITY SATURDAY, now DO WIT Hacks, which hosts virtual and in-person teen-only hackathons. These hackathons provide t(w)eens the opportunity to spend the day tackling their city's greatest challenges and then at the end
of the event, present their proposed solutions to city-officials.
Along the way she has delivered three TEDx talks:
And even talked about "risky" behavior in a recent Creative Mornings talk.
In everything she does, Sarah lives and leads with "11 Tips for Doing WIT". These Tips help develop greater emotional intelligence, along with activating an entrepreneurial mindset. As a result of the proven impact
of the 11 Tips for Doing WIT, Sarah has partnered with organizations, companies, school districts, and parent groups to teach the 11 Tips for Doing WIT. These Tips resonate with everyone. While not everyone will be an entrepreneur and launch a business, EVERYONE can develop an entrepreneurial mindset, and benefit from enhancing and developing their emotional intelligence.
