Episode 83: Homeschooled Teen Entrepreneur

 

There’s a humorous stereotype of the homeschooled genius who masters calculus in the second grade, becomes a chess champion, or does the round of the talk shows to sell his new book because he’s just that precocious. Well… have we got a treat for you. The busy entrepreneur you’re about to meet, John Louzonis, is a Homeschooled Teen Entrepreneur who has done all of those things and much, much more. Stay with us!
