Financial Adviser: 5 Success Lessons from Hershey Hilado's Journey from Homelessness to Millionaire Status

Hershey was featured on issue #3 of build your empire magazine together with Gary Vaynerchuck and kevin harrington from the shark tank uSA.

"My encouragement especially for today's young millennial entrepreneurs is to thrive to live a life of conscious meaning. Be intentional with people. Be present when you're talking and when you're not. There is no roadmap, no blueprint for living a successful life; a lot of people will give you a lot of advice and most of it will be bad, and a lot of it will be good sound but you have to figure out how it doesn't apply to you because you're coming from a different angle! Speak up, show up and back yourself up."

The Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 Creating Life on Their Own Terms

The Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 list has been done before. In fact, Forbes, features several sub lists to the tune of almost 600 different entries. What makes my list different? The individuals on this list aren’t just monetarily successful, they’re artists of a sort. They have created life on their own terms. To truly help this make sense, let’s decode it a little bit.

You may read this list and say “I’m more successful than him or her” or “Why did he or she make it?” In addition to stats, there’s that “X Factor” — that bit of an attitude or “gusto” that society has told them to walk left so they choose to walk right; basically flipping conventional wisdom “The Bird.”

The idea is that they grasped life, took an idea or an opportunity and ran with it; like an artist or a sculptor, they made it their creation. So yes, there is a bit of admiration involved, but let’s face it, these are the individuals that created life on their own terms..

21 Top Influencers Share their Advice on How to Achieve Your Goals In 2017

It’s that time of the year again;

Everybody’s setting new years resolutions, and only a handful of people are actually going to stick to them. Guess what percentage of people achieve their resolutions?

8%. Only 8% of people who set resolutions for the new year end up achieving them. It’s estimated that 24% of people never achieve a single resolution they set at new year in their entire lifetime.

Can you imagine what the world would be like if everybody achieved what they set out to achieve in the new year?

Even if you disregarded the benefits it would have on your own life for a second, imagine the world as a whole. It would surely be a much happier place, no?
