Lessons From a Young Entrepreneur | Ep 422

In this episode: taking the unconventional path, the price of time, early entrepreneurship, talent stacking, and the pursuit of learning.

At least once in most of our FI journeys, we have pondered what our life would look like if we started earlier. Maybe you have even wondered what value could’ve been gained if you had started in your teenage years. Well, for some context into the possibilities that decision could provide, we decided to have 17-year-old listener Devin on the podcast to discuss what life can look like when you go against the cultural norm of going to college, and instead opting for an entrepreneurial and FI-friendly lifestyle. Often we mention that there are rewards that come with stepping out of your comfort zone, and the same can be said for going against the societal norm and carving out your own path! For our younger audience who may be interested in getting started with their FI journey, let this episode be a useful resource and reassurance that this journey can begin no matter your age!
