Kevin Hong is a successful entrepreneur who doesn't take the typical route to doing, well, pretty much anything. He grew his startup Dealflicks up to a $15M valuation out of the back of a van.
Kevin’s been featured in CNBC, Times, Forbes, NY Times, LA Times, Xinhua News (China), Korea Times, NDR (Germany) and countless other media outlets globally. His writing has also been featured in CNBC, Forbes, Inc, HuffPost, and many more.
Most recently, Kevin became the best-selling author of The Outlier Approach: How to triumph in Your Career as a Nonconformist. If you’re someone with very few credentials trying to break into a big business of any kind – whether it’s Wall Street, Madison Avenue, Silicon Valley or Hollywood, this book is for you. And I'm sure this is no surprise, but being a nonconformist (especially in the business world) is an approach and attitude I dig.
During our chat, Kevin shares how his childhood circumstances forced him to find alternative paths to success, including working for a network marketing company that quickly earned him $10K/month with 1500 people working under him - as a college student.
Listen to get a few big ideas from the book to get you started on your own nonconformist career journey.
