In this episode, I interview front-end developer Daniel Kao. Daniel has been running his site, Diplateevo.com, since his freshman year in high school. Daniel is a brilliant individual, and happens to be only 20 years old. He has already had a chance to meet some of his heroes, like Chase Jarvis, Ramit Sethi, Peter Thiel, Randy Komisar, and more. This past year, Daniel did something that took a lot of self control: He cut sugar for a whole year. In our interview Daniel tells me why he made this choice. Finally, Daniel is moving into a complicated field (grant writing) that he has no experience or training in. In the interview, we discuss why this can actually be a great idea for your career.
