025: Success, Scholars, and Julian Bradley


Your Success for Scholars Co-Host:

Scholars along with all of us need to remember that one of the most important things we can do in life is to invest in ourselves. It does not matter how old you are to start. This is definitely the philosophy of this episodes co-host. At the age of seventeen, he made $30,000 in one summer selling knives as a distributor for Cutco. After graduation, he knew he did not want to get a job. After re-engineering his success he made the conscious decision to help others. This lead to the conception of SuccessForScholars.com. Today’s co-host is Julian Bradley.

Generally speaking, investing in yourself is the best thing you can do. Anything that improves your own talents; nobody can tax it or take it away from you. They can run up huge deficits, and the dollar can become worth far less. You can have all kinds of things happen. But if you’ve got talent yourself, and you’ve maximized your talent, you’ve got a tremendous asset that can return ten-fold.” Warren Buffet
