  • jump into business - enter new markets - while using your youth
  • extremely related to the web - and how that’s enabled me its not all that mysterious - how young people get ahead - these are the things that have helped me general lessons - applicable everywhere
  • all my life - i’d have to overcome barriers - my parents didn’t want me to do this because the yknew how difficult it would be work with older people convince them i’m not going to waste their money that i mean it, that i can, and will this generation has built its name around technology. technology is inherently an enabler. worldwide. it binds us
  • extremely related to the web - and how that’s enabled me its not all that mysterious - how young people get ahead - these are the things that have helped me general lessons - applicable everywhere
  • - internal locus of control - pick up that phone and ask - find people that matter - people expect you to take action - but for yourself of course
  • hard work all the way
  • when you’re forging ahead... many people will question you. feedback is great... but you can’t heed to a thousand people. make your mind up. stick to it. people will respect you for it. but! have people who are close enough that you trust on every word who can tell you the real deal. there is a fine line.
  • - audacity - build a relationship - but be cognizant of limits - some of them - now is the time to be allowed to think big - no other time in your life - without rhyme or reason - now is the time
  • - your energy, smiles, drinking capacity, ability to serenade multiple women at once - everything - the web never sleeps - positivity - stay lucky - lack of understanding of the potential of obstacles - you are immune to them if you don&apos;t overthink them
