Podcast Host

“Talk to different people, go to different places, experience different things. That's the only way you're going to get somewhere different than where you're already at.”


Los Angeles, CA

At just 20 years old, Casey Adams is one of the youngest and most prominent entrepreneurs of this era. He is an innovative, inspirational, and determined spirit that has made a name for himself by overcoming personal challenges. He authored the best-selling book “Rise of the Young” and later became the founder and host of a podcast with the same title. Through his podcast, Casey interviews key changemakers about their business strategies so that listeners can get a head start on achieving their dreams. 

Casey was born in Richmond, Virginia, and lived a pretty normal life playing team sports. In 2018, he was badly injured while playing football and was diagnosed with interspinous ligament damage. He had to wear a neck brace for 10 weeks. Even worse, if he were to continue playing sports, he would be severely paralyzed. This devastating news put Casey at a crossroads: how could he stop chasing his dreams when he was only just beginning? But in the midst of the storm, Casey found comfort in a video course by Tai Lopez called “67 Steps to Finding the Good Life.” 

Since then, Casey has become a leader in personal development. He created his own Snapchat Marketing course and provides advice to people that want to improve their social media branding. He frequently appears on stage as a public speaker and is the CEO of Build Your Empire. He calls Gary Vaynerchuk his mentor and has worked with icons like Larry King and Tilman Fertitta. He is a visionary that reinvented himself in spite of unfavorable circumstances and won.
