    Hey Guys,

    My name is Brentis, I’m 17 years old and I’m from Rural VIC. Recently I was flown to San Francisco to meet Peter Thiel, the main investor of Facebook and Co-Founder of PayPal. He was offering x20 $100,000 grants to young entrepreneurs, and I was in the top 40 from around the world.

    In the meantime, I’ve launched The Think Big Business Academy (http://www.thinkbigbusinessacademy.com), which aims to help other young entrepreneurs across Australia by providing courses and programs.

    Hi Brentis – congratulations on your achievement! What a great honour and experience for you.
    Wishing you all the best with your new venture!

    PS you might want to correct the two typos for Australian/UK spelling … Enroll in the menu should be Enrol and enrollments should be enrolments. Cheers.

    PPS These typos are NOW FIXED. :)

    Congratulations Brentis! I agree that the key to success in any business is developing the right mindset. Without developing this first, your business is doomed to failure.

    What are you doing worrying about money at your age young man? You should have more important things on your mind ha! Well done on your achievements. Keep learning from the San Fran set. From my experience it’s them and certain hedge fund managers who have the best ideas for making money.

    Hi Thanh. The Young Entrepreneurs courses focuses more on small online businesses, however it teaches the fundamental basics that I believe are extremely important in starting a business. For example the following topics: Mind Set, Business Basics, Web Development, and Marketing.

    I think it would be extremely useful if you have no experience in business. It creates a fantastic foundation. But of course, its completely up to you :)

    Thanks for your kind words!

    Brentis
