EPoP 025: Hacking Productivity, Sleeping in Narita Airport, and Achieving Freedom with Thomas Frank

Posted By Trav

When was the last time you heard of someone:

  • starting their own successful website
  • crushing their courses
  • and paying off their student debt

…all while they were still in college?

Mark Zuckerberg, you say?

Pssshhh…He never even graduated!

How about someone who did all that AND got his degree?

Like a unicorn, Thomas Frank of CollegeInfoGeek is a rare specimen.

He’s built an incredible website that, despite the name, helps people of ALL ages figure out how become more productive, get a job they actually want, and pay off debt.

And in his spare time, he’s also taken multiple trips to Japan, which has lead to a few funny stories.

One of the main reasons I wanted to have Thomas on the podcast was because, unlike many past guests, he hasn’t galivanted all over the globe…yet!

But, at the young age of 22, he has found a way to give himself a freedom. 

Freedom from a job and freedom from debt, so that now he’ll be able to do something he’s always wanted to do, and that’s to travel more.

And FREEDOM is what many people, especially those who yearn to travel, are after.

So if you’re one of those people looking to achieve some more freedom in your life, soak in these wise-beyond-his-years words from Thomas Frank.
