[PODCAST] #499: Successful Dropout – With Kylon Gienger (Part 1 of 2)


This is the first of two conversations; today Kylon interviews me and next time I will interview him.

Kylon dropped out of college during his freshman year in 2009. Since then he has founded and co-founded multiple companies in the construction, fitness, food service, real estate, and online education industries. He is the creator and host of The Successful Dropout Podcast. He joins me today to discuss School Sucks Project, Successful Dropout, college culture, and entrepreneurship.

- the student loan bubble and the "college is necessary" bubble
- aesthetic diversity
- the consequences of social engineering in college
- live off campus!

- just in case learning vs just in time learning
- transferable skills
- personal accountability, success is not an option
