By May 6th, 2014 One Comment

If you remember your early twenties you were probably still enjoying all night parties, wondering what to do with your life and how you could really change the world.

 I know I was.

Today’s guest, Kelvin Chan, still in his twenties, found his answers through creating a world-wide organization with tens of thousands members while still in school. Now he’s creating two more, one to connect up regions around the world for business, and another to fill a critical gap in the development of therapeutic medical treatments.
