    Oh, he's one of those "Look at this guy. What the fuck am I doing with my life?" people.

    I really don't like how so many journalists use this guy and others as part of their age discrimination agenda. The age doesn't matter at all but all the articles are pretty much shaming those that decided to get serious later at life, even in mid 20's you have to work much harder than the young teens to gain the same level of prestige.

    The same goes with gender, height, race, nationality, religion, etc... there is always a preferred group and there will always be people above and more successful in almost every regard. As long as you don't let other people define your life or happiness, I feel like you'll be okay.

    He's pretty famous in my country now, because being so young... and rich.

    idk I feel like his business is more of a scam than an actually consulting business.

    None the less, I wish him the best of luck.

    Good on him. Good to see young intelligent individuals getting the respect they deserve instead of bullied.

    Not a fan of the essay, though. Looks like an attempt at injecting way too many large descriptive words. Very 50 Shades of Grey-ish.

    And I'm also wary of the concept of placing valuation on private companies based on hedge fund investments. See Theranos.
