David Karp, Tumblr’s founder, dropped out of Bronx High School of Science at 14 to focus on computers. He just sold Tumblr to Yahoo! for $1.1 billion at the age of 26. It’s the same story over again. Bright kid going to a prestigious school drops out, learns new technology, and becomes extremely wealthy. I don’t know if there’s any clearer message than that that shows you that you are ultimately in control of how successful or wealthy you become. Don’t blame the lack of schooling. Don’t blame your teachers. Don’t blame your parents. If you really want to make it in this world, go out there and learn, innovate, and sell. If you’re seeking advice or a place to learn how to code, then I’ve already spent hundreds of hours providing those for you already: FAQ: http://regoapps.com/ama Learning resources: http://regoapps.com/learn And when you are ready, and think you have what it takes, then pick up this book and learn from my mistakes and successes. It’ll save you a lot of time by not having to learn all the tips on your own like I had to do: http://regoapps.com/lifehacked Interesting side note: David and I were in the same high school at the same time. Another person at that school at the same time, Grace Wong, went on to become a Hong Kong TV star. I was just watching one of her shows the other day. Maybe there was something in the air at the place at that time.
