Adam Toren has been an entrepreneur since he was seven years old. In high school, he and his brother, Matthew, used to import stereos and magic kits from Hong Kong to sell back home in Vancouver. They soon began buying struggling businesses, like pool halls and printing companies, and then rejuvenating them.

They’re still helping businesses today through, but they’ve also started helping young people follow in their entrepreneurial footsteps. In 1999, Adam and Matthew launched, which has become the largest website in the world dedicated to empowering and educating aspiring entrepreneurs. They’ve also written a book on the subject, entitled, Kidpreneurs – Young Entrepreneurs with BIG Ideas.

Today, Adam makes his home in Phoenix, Arizona. He’s 35 – and we’re including him here to provide a glimpse into the life, insight, and experience of an entrepreneur who has seen it all, but who’s still young at heart.

Joe Penna grew up on a little-trafficked street in São Paulo, Brazil. When his mother needed help getting more customers to come to her yard sale, Joe used the family computer to design signs that he then posted around town. It was his first taste of business.

When Joe was 12, his family moved to the United States. Joe attended the University of Massachusetts to become a cardiothoracic surgeon, but he eventually dropped out to follow his passion for video.

After bouncing around working on local commercials and music videos in Boston, Joe decided to pack his bags for Los Angeles to start making YouTube videos full-time. His channel, called Mystery Guitar Man, features a new video every Tuesday and Thursday, usually combining Joe’s love for music with unconventional video editing and black sunglasses.

Since getting started in June 2006, Mystery Guitar Man has amassed almost over 1.4 million subscribers and over 76 million over 150 million total views – making it the 13th 6th most subscribed channel on YouTube.
