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believe our world is changing so fast, the current education system can’t keep up and is left teaching us old and outdated skills no longer relevant in the workplace.This podcasts explores what I believe should have been taught in school and aims to help people realise the world is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.

    Welcome back to the Driven Young podcast and today I am joined by an incredible man, Tom Nash, aka DJ Hooky.
    At 19 years old Tom was enjoying his life, studying at university when all of a sudden he contracted a disease. 2 weeks later he woke up from a coma with the decision to either amputate his hands and legs or die.
    Today Tom is a quadruple amputee with hooks for hands hence the name hooky, he is a promoter and Dj as well as a public speaker who has done a TED talk with over 2 million views.
    In this episode Tom shares his story, what happened to him, what was going on in his mind, we talk about opportunity cost and how we post rationalize our decisions, how to know what to do after school, the nocebo effect, partying, and traveling, the education system, mindset stuff and so much more, that is just scratching the surface.
    As you will find out in this episode, Tom is a really smart guy and this is one of my favorite conversations, we cover so many important things in this episode, I really hope you can commit to listening to the whole thing.

    72. How to Become a Boss Public Speaker | The Most Valuable Skill in The World

    MASTER LINK: https://lu.ma/byrondempsey

    Today I am joined by a really great friend of mine Annelise McCarthy. Annie has been listening to the podcast since I first started it and reached out to me about 8 months ago. Since then we have become really good friends, she is so inspiring and such a perfect guest for this show.
    Annelise is a women's public speaking coach slash law student and this episode is all about public speaking. Annie has been public speaking for over 14 years, she represented Australia and placed 5th in the world for a public speaking championship, and has now started her own business coaching women!
    Guys you will hear me talk about it but I cannot express how valuable this skill is. Many people believe public speaking and communication is the most valuable skill you can develop and many people say it is the highest paid profession in the world.
    In this episode we cover how Annie fainted at her first speaking event, her journey with the university, facing pressure, her thoughts on what we should do after high school. We then go into the mindset of public speaking, why so many people fear it but why you shouldn't, how to build confidence then we talk about practical tips and strategies you can use to improve your presentations including a simple storytelling framework. And of course much much more.
    I have been doing A LOT of public speaking training this year with the company Empower U which is a life skills program for Young Adults. It is kind of like this podcast in an event format so I have a lot to say on this topic. By the way, if anyone is interested in coming along to an Empower U event, I would love to have you! Just go to www.drivenyoung.com/eu and you can get 60% of the ticket price, we run events all around Australia. I will be talking more about that in the future as well.

    MASTER LINK: https://lu.ma/byrondempsey

    Welcome back to the Driven Young podcast and today I am joined by 21-year-old law student Kate Danilova.
    Kate is a 21-year-old student at the University of Canberra, in her fourth year of law. Currently working as a clerk at Blumers Lawyers, she has been lucky enough to be exposed to a variety of work experiences that complement her bachelor's degree. Over the last 4 years, she has committed to trying everything that this crazy world offers by traveling to over 20 countries, participating in 2 half marathons, and coaching a young synchronized swimming team.
    Kate reached out to me, she seemed like a perfect fit for the show, being so young, tried lots of things, and really embodying what I talk about on this podcast. She gives a great perspective on how to approach university and take advantage of it, while also building connections so you can line yourself up for a job as soon as you graduate.
    This episode is really great and super tailored for young people, I hope you enjoy it.

    Welcome back to the Driven Young podcast and today we are talking real estate and property. Is it possible for young people to get into the market? And why should we?
    To discuss this I am joined by Andrew Bodnar, co-founder of Kingdom Development. With over 16 years of experience, Andrew is a veteran of property investment. His ability to spot new market opportunities lead him to start (and sell) his own real estate company and financial consulting firm, before applying his expertise to property development.
    Last year alone, Andrew and his team purchased over 111 properties, they now have over half a billion dollars worth of real estate in Kingdom Development and the company has been evaluated at $75 million dollars.
    So point is, Andrew knows what he is talking about, and best of all he is super passionate about helping young people get into the market, they do this by offering a crowdsourcing solution where people can purchase shares of property without needing a massive unattainable deposit, but we will discuss that in the episode.
    In this episode we cover:
    How Andrew got started in propertyIs it possible for young people to get into the market?The three steps to get startedDeveloping the right mindsetHis crowdsourcing strategyOur favorite investment booksand much more.
    This podcast is sponsored by Kingdom Development and I really hope you get some value out of this conversation. I learned so much from Andrew and as you will hear at the end if you are in Australia and want to begin your property journey he is more than happy to help you, he even gives out his personal phone number and email at the end of the show.
