“Give yourself a chance to have exponential impact by going against the grain.”
— Jared Kleinert

Greetings, SuperFriends, and welcome to today’s show.

Today, we’re joined by Jared Kleinert – a 21 year old entrepreneur and author best known for his bestselling book, 2 Billion Under 20, and more recently, 3 Billion Under 30.

Starting out at a very young age, Jared has built one of the world’s most valuable networks, and regularly rubs elbows with some of the world’s most influential people – and in doing so, has become quite the influencer himself. You’ve probably seen Jared on TED.com, Forbes, and more… Pretty impressive!

The goal of this interview was to understand just how Jared has achieved so much success at such a young age, but also, to see what tips he can share with us from his time with the world’s top thought leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, and more.

Throughout the episode, we talk about a LOT… we talk about relationship building skills, networking, craaaazy stories that come from Jared’s network, what he’s learned from some of the world’s top performers, how he learned what he learned and got to where he is, and much, much more. It was so inspiring to talk to Jared and see what he’s been able to do at such a young age, and I think you’re going to learn a lot from him – I certainly did!
