Each year, I invite an incredible mix of young people from more than a dozen countries to join me in Lithuania for an intense week of business, investing and entrepreneurship classes taught by the smartest people I know (it’s also entirely free for the students who attend. I pay out of my own pocket for everything).
I do it because I feel strongly about self-education. It’s how I got to be where I am today. So I thought it would be an opportune time to give you my latest thoughts on how to get an education that really makes a difference in your life.
Education has no age limit (for example, attendees at our camp range from 17 to 47 years of age). But today, I want to specifically address those young people either starting their university studies, or just about to graduate.
Getting a university degree is one of the most important and impactful decisions you’ll ever make.
And we’re expected to make this decision when we’re still teenagers, too often without afterthought as to what a decision like this really means for our future.
In this podcast, I talk about how to approach the decision, whether or not to go to university, how to pick a major and how to manage debt. I also discuss compelling steps that you can take either instead of a university education, or to complement it.
Listen here to find out how to make the most empowering choices you can about your education.
(And if you’re 57 years old and considering doing something new with your life, this podcast will definitely be worth your time. It’s never too late to change your trajectory and make excellent choices.)
