Young people should follow their passions and it will reward you in the long term

You have to figure out what you love. When I was in university I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to be. Thank goodness I found the investment world, because that was my passion. I wanted to get involved with the world and know about the world, and all of a sudden I found a place where you could do that and get paid. 

People need to figure out what they love and do it. No matter how ridiculous other people think it is. Those are the kinds of people who are most successful because they are passionate about what they do. If they don’t become rich they don’t care because they’re so happy.
