I started the Driven Young Podcast as a way to help educate and inspire the younger generation. There are plenty of amazing podcasts out there but I find very few tailors their content to those in high-school and uni. Even the ones that claim they do seem to go off track and fail to keep their message clear and simple for the younger generation to understand.I believe our world is changing so fast, the current education system can’t keep up and is left teaching us old and outdated skills no longer relevant in the workplace.This podcasts explores what I believe should have been taught in school and aims to help people realise the world is different from when their parents grew up and we must make relevant decisions based on the world we live in currently not the world people used to live in.

Highly recommend it
The podcast is absolutely amazing, it teaches you many things about life that you are supposed to learn in school but you never do. It is basically a life guide after school, college and uni or even just a good look at what the younger generation need.
If you want financial, personal, emotional or professional advice definitely check this out.
An Inspiring and Empowering Podcast!
I listen to every episode of Driven Young and it has already taught me far more valuable lessons than those I learned at school.
The messages Byron sends out with each weekly episode are what Gen Zs NEED to be hearing, and I can’t praise the guy enough.
Keep doing what you’re doing Byron, you are making a far greater difference than you will ever know.
Found a clip of this on Tiktok and immediately felt the need to watch the full thing. Just by watching one pod, I’ve felt really encouraged and had a change of perspective on life. Thank you so much and keep it up.
