Key Lessons

  • College may not be in everyone’s best interest, especially if the programs teaching decade+ old materials that are no longer actively in use. 

  • Create more acceptance for multi-passionate contributors to society

  • Surround yourself with people who love the process 

  • Focus on “who am I” vs “what am I”

  • Busy-ness doesn’t necessarily take care of business.

  • Time-blocking is important for productivity but most people don’t know any better due to how the US education system breeds us to spend our time. 

  • “Time-spent” does not equate to productivity 

  • Productivity & fulfillment are two sides of the same coin

  • Keep your lightbulb lit and use it to spark others
