This poem is dedicated to all the entrepreneurs out there who see things a little differently. It was shared by Elise Gower, the Coordinator of International Service Programs at Scranton University prior to her ceremonial Invocation for the recent Award for Woman Entrepreneur luncheon.

Here’s to the
By Jack Kerouac
Here’s to the crazy ones…
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them; disagree with them; glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.
