EP #017 – Why You Don’t Need a Degree to Be Successful With Richard Kuo

Our guest on the show today is RICHARD KUO. Richard Kuo is a youth inspirational speaker and Youtuber (RichardKuoLive) based out of Orange County, California. He has spoken on the TEDx stage and is also a finale winner on the hit TV game show The Price is Right.

Growing up convinced he was overweight, unintelligent, and a good-for-nothing child, Richard lived much of his early life with low self-esteem and little confidence towards succeeding in school and life. Today, Richard empowers thousands of students around the world to find the courage to trust themselves and pursue their dreams.
