In today’s episode, I talk to 19-year-old business student and entrepreneur, Leif Rasmussen!

I met Leif and his dad randomly because I was staring at his car…and they thought it was weird, turns out the dad knew AppSumo and we’ve been friends since. Then Leif hit me up recently to ask life and business questions…

And it worked out perfectly because y’all ask me all the time:

  • “Noah—how do I start a business as a teenager?!”
  • “Noah—what advice do you have for young entrepreneurs?!”

But I haven’t been a teenager in a long time. Luckily, Leif is a 19-year-old business student here in Austin, and he also runs a knife-sharpening business on the side that makes about $20k/year!

So in today’s episode, Leif asks me questions about how to succeed as a young entrepreneur and I ask him about his business goals, and we get into some deep life conversations along the way.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn what it’s like being a young entrepreneur, you’ll love this episode.

In this episode, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:

  1. How to put yourself in a position of hypergrowth, no matter what age you are
  2. Why you need to surround yourself with people who DISAGREE with you
  3. And how to experiment with the dials of your life to find what fits you best

And if you enjoy listening to the podcast, I would really appreciate it if you left a review on Apple Podcasts to help more people find out about it. I might shout you out in the next episode!
