Driven Young with Byron Dempsey | Win the Day™ podcast
September 14, 2021

“To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, and be nothing.”


Our guest today is Byron Dempsey who is doing some incredible work to empower young people and shake up the educational system. Through his Driven Young brand and the Driven Young Podcast, Byron’s amassed 600,000+ followers and 300,000+ podcast downloads. 

After learning more in two months as an entrepreneur than he did through all of high school, Byron initiated a movement where he teaches practical life skills that aren’t taught in schools so young people are equipped with all they need to succeed in a rapidly changing world.

If you’re on TikTok, you might have already seen Byron’s empowering work. Through two brands, he’s garnered 15+ million likes and is leading the charge for younger generations to take ownership of their lives. 

Check out the YouTube or podcast version where Byron Dempsey does the Win the Day Rocket Round, answering questions about her favorite quote, what advice she’d give her 18-year-old self, the one thing on her bucket list, and a whole lot more 🚀

In this episode, we go deep on several topics, including:

  • The problem with high school
  • What young people can do to succeed
  • The #1 decision that catapulted his career
  • How to go viral on TikTok, and
  • Why mental health is the best metric of health and success.

Before we begin, remember that the right bit of inspiration can completely change the trajectory of someone’s life, so if there’s a friend or loved one who needs to hear this episode, share it with them right now.
