Benjamin Yee, Founder of EMERGE App has followed a different path, but one which I think is truly inspirational. If only I heard stories like this before leaving myself for University and then following the standard corporate path.
- never worked in a corporate 9-5
- never been to University
- never had a boss
However, he's running his own successful startup focussing on helping small business owners and solo entrepreneurs like us.

Here are the 3 things I learned from Ben:
- You don't need a University Degree or past Corporate Career to succeed with a tech startup
- Living in an expensive city is possible as a startup founder - you simply need to be very mindful of your outgoings and make sacrifices (where possible)
- Find a second income, if possible, to subsidize everything else, so you can continue to work on your dream.
