Todays guest is another example of someone who seems to have been born with the skills to make their own money.
At a very early age, whilst his friends were going the normal route to get jobs, by creating resumes and attending interview after interview he had other ideas.
He realised that the only person who is going to get wealthy in that scenario would be the employer not the employee.
So he set on of an entrepreneurial path to start making his own money, and at quite an early age too.
At the age of 11, you could find him selling his personal snacks at scout camp and by age 17 he had hired his friends to help him operate his landscaping business that earned him $10,000 for college.
All in all, by age 20 he started and ran over $320,000 in businesses.
But that was just the start of it all as he realised that the skills that he had built up were transferable and most importantly teachable.
So he began teaching other college students to run their own successful businesses, which led him to receive the "Entrepreneur of the Year" award from Young Entrepreneurs Across America.
He now speaks to students across the country teaching them the lessons he's learned as a young entrepreneur and encouraging them to take the entrepreneurial leap.
So how has he managed to take the leap of faith that for many seems too big to handle?
How did he persuade a bunch of 17 year olds to work for him.....I cant get my kids to do anything even if I pay them!
Well lets find out as we start joining up dots, with the one and only Chandler Bolt
