Crowned the “World’s Most Connected Millennial” by USA Today, Jared Kleinert published two bestselling books, gave multiple TED talks, scaled several businesses, and became the go-to marketing and development consultant for numerous venture-backed startups and Fortune 500 companies – all before he was even old enough to drink.

So, what’s his secret to such early success? “It’s definitely the people I surround myself with,” Kleinert says.
