Young people: definitely listen to this [audio]

It’s no secret that the conventional model of success no longer works.

Go to school, get good grades, get a good job, work your way up the ladder, and then enjoy life when you retire.

This idea has been drummed into our heads since we were young, but today it’s totally defunct.

Following that path means you’re likely to end up with a mountain of student debt and an incredibly expensive piece of paper that guarantees neither job security nor even a real education.

In my mind, the best model for education and success is the oldest one: mentorship.

It’s the best way to learn real skills– studying directly under someone who has mastered the skills that you hope to develop.

It’s the way the world worked for thousands of years, and it’s the way that still makes the most sense today.

For seven years in a row we’ve built our annual Liberty and Entrepreneurship camps around this concept of mentorship.

And in today’s podcast, I make a departure from our normal topics and discuss business mentorship with two of the instructors from this summer’s upcoming camp.

If you’re an energetic, talented young person, you won’t want to miss this podcast… or this year’s Liberty and Entrepreneurship camp.

The camp is an incredible opportunity to learn and be mentored by incredibly successful, knowledgeable entrepreneurs, as well as network with other like-minded, talented young people.

As a reminder, there is no charge to attend the camp; our foundation pays for the entire event.

But don’t think of this as some kind of charity.

For us, this an investment… an investment in relationships with the next generation of bright, talented people. I can hardly think of a better use for paper currency.

Listen in here to the podcast as we discuss specifically what young people will get out of this year’s camp.

And, once you listen to the Podcast, head over to SovereignAcademy.org to apply for this year’s camp. The application deadline is only days away.
