Default An Ashton Kutcher Message to Young People




Although the screaming girls are somewhat annoying his message is really good.

Like any industry, entertainment has its share of smart people and empty heads. In that clip, Ashton sounded like one of the smart ones.

Only part of the show I saw - but he really impressed me with the "work" dialog.

I read an interview with him over the weekend discussing his new movie where he plays the role of Steve jobs and he appeared to be a fairly intelligent guy.The only thing I previously knew about him was that he married Demi Moore ( lucky sob) and that he always played some goofball on tv.He actually is a founding partner of a venture fund that invests in start up technology firms.He seemed to have a pretty good grasp of technology and investing.Pretty good message in the video and one you won't see coming from most of his peers and Hollyweird in general unfortunately.

Just wish it would reach the crowd that needs to hear it.

"Opportunities look a lot like work"

There's that 4 letter word that some shy away from unfortunately.

Well...his words better be louder than his actions. He was arrested as a teen for burglary and dropped out of college. If he didnt have a pretty face, I doubt he would have accomplished much.

A lot of us would have been arrested in our teens, or older, but for luck, and a lot of us dropped out of college. The tech curriculum did not nearly keep up with the industry in the early years, or even now, and many nerds had no reason to be there.
How long do you judge someone by their past?

Well said. Is there a Statute of Limitations for dumb ass things we did as kids or do we carry around those foolish mistakes for the rest of our lives like a dead albatross around our neck?

Part of living in a democracy is being able to re-invent yourself every day---what you say and do today trumps what you did yesterday.

I was in and out of juvey and jail as a kid but that didn't stop me from later, going on to raise two beautiful smart daughters, putting them both through college, and running a successful commercial bait distribution business

'Nuff said

Too bad that most young adults don't share his enthusiasm for work.
My first thought was that if he was still sweeping the floor in a factory, would he still feel this way.
He sounded very "republican"...wonder if Hollywood will black-ball him for that.

I know one thing, no matter how many times I caught over my limit, bull eyed rabbits, went mud riding on private property, smoked weed, drove around drunk, faught cuss and swore............. I ALWAYS made it to work on time! Always took care of my obligations and paid my bills. If someone was to judge from my past only they'd probably want to put me UNDER the jail. Good thing we as Humans can recreate ourselves to be better people and not get judged by our past actions.

You can go drinking with the boys, but you got to go to work with the men.
