television series “Shark Tank.”

Some people plan for retirement over the course of their careers, while others wait to think about that next stage of their lives when it gets closer. Not all Americans save adequately for their old age, partially because they can’t afford to do so or because they have other, more present-day financial obligations, such as student loans, child care and high costs of living, to worry about.

Still, there’s a portion of the population, albeit small, that pursues retirement early — in some cases, by the time they’re in their 30s or 40s. They do so by living frugally and dedicating most of their income to the stock market. This movement is known as FIRE, short for “financial independence, retire

Will Smith, Kevin Hart fund pandemic-proof virtual events start-up Run The World

From working with Will Smith and Kevin Hart, to hosting thousands of events across the globe, Xiaoyin Qu’s schedule has been packed lately.

In May, the 27-year-old Stanford dropout added the A-list entertainers to a string of big names eager to back her virtual events start-up with $10.8 million, as investors sought to ride the rising tide of coronavirus-friendly technology businesses.

No one saw this coming, at least when we pitched it.

Qu doesn’t claim to have seen the pandemic coming. Far from it, in fact. This was simply the latest in a long line of failed ideas. 

“I had enough failed ideas, or enough ideas people thought were stupid, I just thought well, maybe I’ll give it (a) try,” Qu told CNBC Make It.

Kevin Macri and His Social Media Business Development

Entrepreneurship not only allows you to keep growing. It also allows you to develop the ability to lead others on the path to this same purpose. Planned or unplanned, an entrepreneur often becomes a leader and a point of reference for those who work alongside him or even those who wish to follow in his footsteps.

From Kevin Macri’s experience, entrepreneurship has allowed him to lead a team of over 50 people on the road to success. His development as a digital marketing expert at only 23 years of age has made him an obligatory reference. But it has also led him to work hand in hand with other people with the common goal of achieving successful results.

Kevin had always thought about becoming a recognized entrepreneur. And since he had the opportunity, he started working on finding his purpose. In 2017 he moved from Uruguay to Argentina, where he
