We had the good fortune of connecting with Benjamin Wong and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Benjamin, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
A favorite quote of mine is ‘life is either an adventure or nothing at all”. I first heard this quote in one of my favorite Youtube Channels, Yes Theory, but over time I’ve noticed it everywhere I go. Once, I was paddle-boarding at Lady Bird Lake in Austin, and I even saw the quote graffitied on a wall. It’s a good quote on how I like to live my life-seeking failures and doing things that most would assume as crazy.

What should our readers know about your business?
In my few years as a ‘kidpreneur’, I’ve run multiple podcasts and started a mini NFT consulting firm, Kid CEO Media. Above all, I’m most proud of the people I’ve met through these endeavors, all young people who have become great friends, who I know will one day be our next great leaders.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would definitely bring my best friend out to the beach and spend the day on the water. While I’m not a great swimmer, I’m absolutely in love with water sports, and that’s always my go-to when a friend’s in town. After, we’ll hit up In-N-Out and watch a sunset and Griffith park.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would have to shoutout my parents! They’ve been instrumental in my journey so far and they continue to nurture and support the person I’m becoming. Without them, there is no way I would get to where I am now.
