Today I interview Alek Halverson, a good friend of mine for years. Ever since he was a kid, he wanted to be on the radio. In this short interview, we cover how he got his first job running a daily radio show by age 19 with no degree and almost no professional experience.

There are a few funny things going on here:

First, we used Alek’s equipment, so even though I’m “hosting” the podcast, it sounds like I’m calling in to his radio show.

Second, there’s some quiet background music from a neighboring radio show, so you can jam out to the Cars as we’re talking (hopefully it’s not too distracting).


Topics we discuss:

Should you drop out of college?

Tips for learning on the job without much experience

The driving force behind building a career from scratch

How Alek handles screwing up on the air

What it’s like being the youngest person in a professional setting


Overall, it’s a quick interview, and you’ll find tons of valuable advice for how to approach early career building. Enjoy
