Find Your Grind CEO Nick Gross recently spoke with business strategist, journalist, and best-selling author of Breakthrough, Scott Duffy for Entrepreneur.com on how to help your GenZ kid find success.
The majority of Gen Zers have already begun saving for retirement and 62% said they have started — or plan to start — their own businesses. Meanwhile, a recent Harvard Business School study found that more companies are dropping four-year degrees from their hiring requirements.
