Ep. 8 How the Essence of Fire is Helping Kids Realize Their Superpower – Jonathan Shanin

Jonathan Shanin excelled in many careers before founding Benjamin Franklin Experience—naval architecture, online marketing, and scaling the work of charities solving dire problems in the world. His passion for finding meaning in his own life—and his insistence on excellence—is reflected in every element of Benjamin Franklin Experience.

Along with this endeavor, Jonathan is the Co-Founder and CEO of Humanry, devoted to helping leaders and companies optimize performance in remote environments, and in the process, create happier, more collaborative teams. He is also a former member of the U.S. National Team in kayaking, Jonathan brings an unyielding determination and discipline to his work.

The Benjamin Franklin Experience delivers social-emotional learning curriculum that increases students’ EQ (emotional intelligence quotient) while introducing them to aspirational careers.  90% of participants increased their EQ through the program (validated by third-party testing).  100% of participants were given hands-on experiences in careers they had never before considered. Participating companies and supporters: Mike Rowe Works Foundation, Best Buy, GE, Prisma Health Simulation Center, Carolina Power, Eldeco, Walmart and others.
