Idealog's Most Creative: Crimson Education's Jamie Beaton talks creativity

Jamie Beaton was one of the People's Choice winners for the education category in Idealog and Accenture's Most Creative People. You don’t create a company valued at $220 million in your early 20s unless you have something special, and the mile a minute whizzkid Beaton has done that with Crimson Education, which helps students from around the world get into top US universities. Here, he talks why some creative passions shouldn't be a full-time gig, resilience and how to tell a good idea from a bad one.
