What would you tell your 13 year old self?

  • You’re a great kid!
  • Cut down on drinking so much Mountain Dew. Water is better.
  • Watch out for icy roads!
  • Learn from adults. Most are wiser than you.
  • Take up running and biking.
  • Tell your parents I (i.e. the older you) said to invest heavily into Apple’s initial IPO.
  • Smile, have fun, and enjoy the ride!

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet and why?

Elon Musk, not only does he have a vision, he is executing on it to change the world and humanity. This is profound.

What would you do, for a career, if you weren’t doing this?
