PATTY’S KEY LESSONS FOR YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS
Billionaire Stripe co-founder Patrick Collison has laid down some insightful advice for young budding entrepreneurs who often email asking for general advice. Something he can confidently offer after becoming a tech millionaire in his teens, then building a billion dollar empire by his mid-twenties.
If you’re 10–20: These are prime years! Collison exclaims.
Here’s lessons learned from the incredibly successful, young entrepreneur:
- Go deep on things. Become an expert. Try to go deep on multiple things.
- Try to achieve some sense for which kinds of things you enjoy doing by age 20. This probably won’t change a lot throughout your life and so you should try to discover the shape of that space as quickly as you can.
- Make friends over the internet with people who are great at things you’re interested in. The internet is one of the biggest advantages you have over prior generations. Leverage it.
- Aim to read a lot.
- If you think something is important but people older than you don’t hold it in high regard, there’s a decent chance that you’re right and they’re wrong. Status lags by a generation or more.
- Having good social skills confers life-long benefits. Don’t write them off. Get good at making a good first impression, being funny (if possible… Collison admits he’s still working on it…), speaking publicly.
- Make sure that the things you’re pursuing are considered weird. Heuristic: do your friends at school think your path is a bit strange? If not, maybe it’s too normal.
- Remember: people who did great things often did so at very surprisingly young ages. (They were grayhaired when they became famous… not when they did the work.) So, hurry up! You can do great things.
One caveat however, if you’re 20-30, Collison isn’t old enough to write this section…Yet. Pls check back in a couple of years.
