The WIT Rosetta Stone

fullsizerenderAs some may already know, profits from the paperback Digest edition of Naturally Caffeinated go to supporting Whatever It Takes (WIT).

Based in San Diego, with locations in St. Louis, Austin, and New York City, WIT is the only 6-unit college credit social entrepreneur and leadership program in the country. So, please spend $10 to buy a copy of The Digest, if you haven’t yet!

When you do, one of the things you will notice is how nicely the core principles of WIT and The Digest dovetail. At WIT, these principles are communicated as Tips, of which there are 11.

For WIT students, alumni, or others curious, the following list is a Rosetta Stone of sorts, mapping each of WIT’s tips with a couple of lessons from The Digest.
