Today’s generation of aspiring young entrepreneurs are often looked down upon, almost as if they won’t be able to meet and surpass their predecessors to bring the world to a new stage of enlightenment like the previous generations before them. But that’s precisely what nineteen-year-old author-humanitarian-CEO-student R.J. Tolson proved could be done.

“I hear young people of all ages saying they never really thought they could make any of their dreams come true,” says Tolson as he stands in front of an audience of over 200 people, “But I’m here to tell you, where there is inspiration, there is a way. It is up to us to find our path, or paths, but once we do, we have to keep at it and try our best. Just never give up.”
