James is one of the smartest people I’ve ever talked to on the podcast, and he’s also one of the youngest! Right now, he’s a researcher at CareerKarma, writing long-form posts about all things future of education and work. I have no doubt he’ll be a very successful founder one day, but I didn’t want to wait to have him on the show.

Please PLEASE listen to the episode if you have any interest in learning about Income Share Agreements. I feel as if there is no one more knowledgeable on the topic than James. On this episode, some of the questions James answers are:

What are ISAs?

What happened historically to allow ISAs to occur?

What did they only get popular in the last 5 years?

Are ISAs going to put universities out of business or will they compete?

Is it possible to have ISAs for people with potential?

Who are some of the leaders in ISAs right now?

What was it like going through Pioneer and being one of the first winners?

What tips do you have for other young people to use the internet to break into startups?

And tons more!
