Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

On this episode, Entrepreneur Network partner Peter J. Voogd sits down with fellow millennial entrepreneur Billy Gene to talk about how they went their own way to become independent entrepreneurs. Voogd explains how he learned the value of thinking differently by selling shoes on eBay at 15, while Gene says entrepreneurs shouldn't listen to non-entrepreneurs when it comes to starting their own business.
