EPISODE 32: Co-Founder, Next Gen
Episode 32 features a young and impressive entrepreneur by the name of Justin Lafazan. From an earlier age, Justin saw his Dad struggle through the 2008 Recession as a Mortgage Banker and vowed to pave his own way in life so that he never had to be impacted by other peoples decisions. That drive has led him to create a company while still in high school, write a book, and start a 2nd company to bring together young entrepreneurs from all over the place. Oh and he is only 22 years old!
I truly enjoyed this interview with Justin and excited for you all to listen in!
