They Told Me I Was Crazy…

A year ago I left college after one semester. People told me I was crazy, I wouldn’t be able to get a job and I was wasting my potential if I didn’t get a degree.

8 months ago, I started Teenage Entrepreneur as a resource to help young entrepreneurs gain insight and advice from those who have walked the lonely entrepreneurial path.

Today, I’m on a flight to Boston. Babson University, a top ranked entrepreneurship/business college, is flying me up to do interviews with a few of their speakers at their annual entrepreneurship conference. It is one of the greatest honors I’ve ever received!

I’m the first to admit we need to heed advice from others, but sometimes you need to follow your intuition and believe in yourself when others don’t. You never know where it’ll take you.

***Update: The entire forum was an incredible experience! Photos, videos, & podcasts will be uploaded shortly. Check out the BEF website here.****
