Nathan works with small business and Fortune 500 companies to grow the amount of marketing-qualified leads they have coming into their business.

"Starting the path to financial freedom is like getting in shape; after the age of 23, it becomes a lot more difficult. Let's let teens shape the path to financial freedom at an early age."

– Nathan Sykes

Nathan wants teens to know that “being an average student” will take a tremendous toll on your future. If you work ten times as hard as everyone else in high school and college, you’ll reap the rewards ten times earlier. While your classmates are saving up for retirement, you’ll be expanding your empire and overviewing your investments.

With the advent of technology, the path to financial freedom for teens has never been easier. Who will start the climb?
