In this episode, we’re focusing on entrepreneurs who left college to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams. With us today is WIll Mitchell, director of marketing of Affluence.org and founder of StartupBros, an online portal for start up entrepreneurs to learn how business works in the digital age.
In the podcast, Will talks about the drive to start up a business as something deeper than a passing passion – being an entrepreneur means finding a mindset you want to hold for the rest of your life. “You have to be an entrepreneur as a person,” Will told me in our interview. “‘Entrepreneur’ can’t be your job or profession.” He found, for himself, that college did not provide enough of what he was willing to learn on his own. “Business is a real world experience,” he said.
