    Great stuff man.

    What were the hard challenges that you had to overcome when you got your first order? Apparently the sudden cash made things a lot easier, but I'm curious about what you had to go through (and how you overcame them) while building your brand new company, starting from a small team of developers.

    Very inspiring brother! I'm so happy you found success and proved all the doubters wrong. My story feels very similar to yours, but it was with my decision to drop out of University. I haven't had the success you've had yet, but I know I'll get there. Idk how, but I know it will happen. Thanks for cheering me up today! :)

    Chris - I think it's fair to say you were/are operating at a particularly unique maturity level when you made these choices. I'd hate to see the casual 17 year old reader of this forum think it's OK to drop-out of high school. (And they're here often, asking if they should go to college, dump their girlfriend and move to Viet Nam, how to "go fastlane", and the like).

    A few - just a few - are like you. And maybe there's no right age to begin this journey but I'm going to make a solid generalization that most high school kids are not ready.

    Did high school prepare me to run a small business - of course not (and so the usual refrain becomes that because it's not immediately useful, it should be avoided). But I certainly wasn't ready to head-out on my own, which is where you're way ahead of me. Unscripted and TMF are powerful stuff, but there's no reason a kid can't finish high school and hustle on the side.

    Congratulations on your journey, but I'd be curious if you'd advise a similar move to others (who hadn't independently come to that conclusion).

    I've had pleasure talking to Chris some time ago. He's a busy entrepreneur that is a living example that age doesn't define a success. He has provided what market needed and was rewarded accordingly.

    No question at all. My goal was only to point-out he's exceptional. I read the press links - it's impressive.

    He gave some good advice and was wondering if he'd qualify it in any way. Maybe he won't.

    IMHO he's too busy working on his current venture (related to construction sector) to qualify anything.
