Description

I started the Driven Young Podcast as a way to help educate and inspire the younger generation. There are plenty of amazing podcasts out there but I find very few tailors their content to those in high-school and uni. Even the ones that claim they do seem to go off track and fail to keep their message clear and simple for the younger generation to understand.I believe our world is changing so fast, the current education system can’t keep up and is left teaching us old and outdated skills no longer relevant in the workplace.This podcasts explores what I believe should have been taught in school and aims to help people realise the world is different from when their parents grew up and we must make relevant decisions based on the world we live in currently not the world people used to live in.

Today I sit down and have a great conversation with Aaryan Shah. Aaryan is actually the younger brother of Sachin who episode 36 on the show.Aaryan was born with a condition called Cerebral Palsy. Cerebral Palsy affects body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture and balance. Basically, he does not have full control of his muscles, he uses a wheelchair to get around... however Aaryan is mentally fine, as you will see in this episode he is a really smart dude.I was inspired by Aaryan after hearing all that he had accomplished at such a young age, whilst being born with this condition. Aaryan has gone surfing, he has climbed mountains, he has done a TEDx talk and I am just scratching the surface.I think the common theme of this episode is so much of your limitations in life are in your mind. And that is exactly what we cover in today's episode. We go into his story, how he has achieved all he has, how he stays positive and continues to grow, how he makes friends, how we are all lucky we just have to take advantage of that luck and so much more.As per usual, reach out to me on insta if you have any questions or are enjoying the show, please considering leaving a rating or review on Apple podcasts and finally I have created a buy me a coffee link for anyone who wanted to help support the show, so if you want to buy me a coffee and help support the show just click on the link at the very bottom of the description.Find Aaryan!Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/aaryan_s/Follow Byron:Byrons Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/byron__dempsey/D.Y Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drivenyoungpodcast/Tik Tok: https://vm.tiktok.com/J8a8hS3/FREE Ebook Download: https://drivenyoung.com/stocks-101/JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUPSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drivenyoung)

GOAL SETTING TEMPLATE http://www.drivenyoung.com/goalsWelcome back to the Driven Young podcast!Today we are talking about job interviews and how to crush it so you can land whatever job you go for. I've only done a few interviews in my life but the ones I did I was massively underqualified and actually landed them. I have also been on the other side and interviewed many people now so I have both perspectives.However today we will be learning from Ishana Pilger. Ishana is the general manager of Empower U, a company have partnered up with and am a massive fan of. The founder of this company actually came on the show and is one of my all-time favourite interviews, episode 32.I saw Ishana do a presentation on job interviewing techniques and was super impressed, I then quickly realised how valuable this would be for you guys so I asked her to come on.She mentions it in the episode but, she has applied and successfully won many jobs and internships including a recent internship with Google, from which 2300 people applied.This episode is super tactical, we take you through the entire journey of a job interview, from making a resume, to how to dress, to first impressions, having some simple questions prepared, a simple storytelling formula you can use to answer their questions, all the way to following up after the interview is done.So definitely stick around for his one, I think there is so much value here that could massively benefit you for when you apply for your next position.As per usual guys, feel free to reach out to me on Instagram if you enjoyed this episode, feel free to reach out to Ishana as well if you have any questions and just a reminder I have created a goal-setting template for you all, so if you are struggling to set your goals I highly recommend you check it out, it is free and the link is in the description.Follow Ishana:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ishanapilger/Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ishana-pilger-1680b3154/Check out Byron on social media:Byrons Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/byron__dempsey/D.Y Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drivenyoungpodcast/Tik Tok: https://vm.tiktok.com/J8a8hS3/JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUPSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drivenyoung)

In celebration of the New year today we are going deep into goal setting and how to set and actually achieve goals this year.Goal setting is a fundamental part of success. I promise you anyone you look up to in life who is where you want to be, has clearly defined goals set and an actionable plan to achieve them. Goal setting is seriously so important if you have big plans for your life and want to make an impact.I am going to be doing an entire weekend with my mates going through videos to help plan out my goals for 2021. In my opinion, these will be two of the most important days for me this year.Today I am joined by Jessica Emily, she is an Entrepreneur who is dedicated to teaching you the tools to own your thinking and help you face the challenges of the world. Having started and sold multiple successful companies she now coaches people around their mindset, limiting beliefs holding them back and has run multiple workshops all around goal setting.Now, this episode is split up into two parts, the first part we talk about why goal-setting, limiting beliefs and ideas for how you should set goals and the second part we get practical and give you step by step instructions on what to do.To help with your goal setting I have created a really simple FREE template for you to fill out.

Welcome back to the Driven Young podcast and today we are talking Finance and Tik Tok.If you are a regular listener of the show or follow me on Tik Tok you would know I do all my interviews in person. I have had opportunities to interview some massive people online, but I really try and keep it in person, for an array of reasons. However, I did break that rule for this guest.Today I am joined by Taylor Price also known as Pricelesstay online, she is an online influencer who specialises in financial education for Gen Z. She currently has over 900,000 followers on Tik Tok and close to 100,00 on Instagram.Now finance is one of the biggest things I think school should teach us, and in this conversation, we get into some simple finance tips you can use now, why Taylor started getting into finance, we talk about Tik Tok and how she started and grew her account, we get into the good parts and bad parts of Tik Tok and so much more.I just want to emphasis how impressive it is she has grown her accounts to this size. Growing on social media by putting out educational content is really hard. Most people aren't on Tik Tok to be educated and people are far less likely to follow you even when you have a video go viral. So to have almost reached a million followers through educational content is a massive achievement and we go into how she did this in the episode.As per usual, if you enjoyed this episode or any others please reach out and DM, I would love to get. your feedback or answer any questions, Next weeks episode is going to be a solo episode where I break down my 2020 and go into detail about my life and what I learnt this year along with an episode all about goal setting, so make sure you stay tuned for this.Follow Taylor:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pricelesstay/Tik Tok: https://www.tiktok.com/@pricelesstayCheck out Byron on social media:D.Y Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drivenyoungpodcast/Byrons Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/byron__dempsey/Tik Tok: https://vm.tiktok.com/J8a8hS3/JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUPSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drivenyoung)
Welcome back to the Driven Young podcast and I am going to cut the music for this intro.Today we are covering a very serious and heavy topic. But I would argue this could be my most important episode yet.Today I am joined by school Brent Sanders.Brent Sanders is one of Australia’s most respected communicators in the field of workplace harassment, bullying and discrimination. He also presents lectures throughout Australia on sexual crime, criminal profiling and personal safety in senior secondary schools and universities.Following a distinguished career in the Police Force, he started his own business presenting seminars and lectures on workplace harassment, conflict resolution and offender psychology.So Brent came to my school years ago and did a presentation on sexual crime and assault, splitting up the boys and girls into separate groups. To date, my friends and I still talk about this presentation and it highlighted a massive issue I was so completely unaware of at the time. I talk a lot about what I think school should be teaching us and I am sure by the end of this episode you will be as shocked as me that school doesn't cover this.Throughout the episode Brent highlights the importance of educating young people around this topic, what he has seen over 25 years of presenting this information at schools having been involved in a number of sexual crime cases, why stranger danger has conditioned us to believe if we stay away from strangers we are safe, what the law defines sexual assault as, the consequences of committing a crime like this and so much more.Find Brent:Website: https://www.brentsandersconsulting.com.au/Check out Byron on social media:D.Y Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drivenyoungpodcast/Byrons Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/byron__dempsey/Tik Tok: https://vm.tiktok.com/J8a8hS3/JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUPSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drivenyoung)
Today I am joined by 21 year old new author Logan Ayers. Logan is a legend, he has just published his first fiction novel at the age of 21 called "an outsider on the inside".A unique coming of age tale that follows the atypical ambivert - Zac Kallest. Zac is, by most definitions, normal and he likes it that way.Being normal means you can steer clear from the ever painful social structures of high school and can all together avoid the unnecessary drama.But as a moment forces him into the social spotlight, he is required to navigate his way through waves of teenage gossip, family fuelled embarrassment and just plain old puberty, in an effort to unearth a way back to consistent normality.This is something I am sure so many of you can relate to going through highschool. We often talk about how as young people we wear multiple different masks depending on who we are with and struggle to just show our truest self based on fear of judgment.So today Logan and I dive deep into this topic, we talk about his experience at an all-boys private school, how school crushed his love for creativity and how important creativity is, we get into networking and how to meet new people, how he got a full-time job 6 months before graduating his degree and so much more.As per usual, if you enjoy this episode, please reach out to myself or Logan on Instagram, Logan would love to have a chat with you and so would I, please consider leaving a rating on Apple podcasts and make sure you are following myself and the Driven Young Podcast on Instagram to stay updated.Find Logan online:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/loganayers_18/Website: https://www.anoutsiderontheinside.com/Check out Byron on social media:D.Y Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drivenyoungpodcast/Byrons Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/byron__dempsey/Tik Tok: https://vm.tiktok.com/J8a8hS3/JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUPSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drivenyoung)

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUPQuestion form (please fill out)Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast…Today’s episode I have a seriously amazing guy on. He is a Travel vlogger with over 500,000 followers online and one of the most down to earth people I have met.Luke Damant reached out to me a while back as a listener of the show just to let me know he really enjoyed it, we chatted a bit and I invited him out to lunch.Since then he has come along to some meetups I’ve been too, he has joined the 5:30 am club and started his own club where he lives.As I mentioned Luke is a 20-year-old dude who basically travels around making videos and getting paid to do so. Well this was before COVID, but now he has started a digital marketing agency to help others grow their brand the way he has grown his.In this conversation, we get into his story and we start off with a Bang. A literally bang as Luke goes into detail about a horrific accident he had in India which left him nearly without a hand, and how that experience affected him. We get into how to grow a following like he has, how he was able to travel for free leveraging social media, we talk about Tik Tok culture, Youtube, being grateful, how to stop caring what others think and so much more.Please note Lukes attitude throughout this episode. As we are discussing his near-death experience, he is laughing and having a good time talking about, he is almost grateful I would say. He talks about how by setting no expectations you can’t be disappointed and as a result, you will always be grateful for what you have, and you can really hear him living this when he retells his stories.As per usual, if you get any value from this episode or from the show please consider leaving a review, let me know what you think and don’t hesitate to reach out to me on or Luke Instagram, Luke reached out to me and now he’s here on the show!Find Luke:YoutubeInstagramTik TokCheck out Byron on social media:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drivenyoungpodcast/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ByronjDempseyByron Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/byron__dempsey/Tik Tok: https://vm.tiktok.com/J8a8hS3/JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUPSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drivenyoung)

Adam Miller and Sachin Shah have conversations with a diverse range of guests including entrepreneurs, philosophers, activists and fitness icons to name a few.Sachin is a Sydney uni student who is passionate about social justice and closing the gap of inequality and today we chat about his life, how growing up with a brother with cerebral palsy inspired him to do more, how he travelled around the world after school with his best mate, starting his podcast, how he has built hundreds of amazing connections using a simple coffees strategy, we, later on, get into economics and break down a communist society and a capitalistic society and so much more.So you are in for an awesome episode.JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP: https://drivenyoung.com/group/Find Sachin:Insta: https://www.instagram.com/sachin__shah/Sachins podcast: https://podfollow.com/1462522364Check out Byron on social media:Driven Young Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drivenyoungpodcast/Byron Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/byron__dempsey/Tik Tok: https://vm.tiktok.com/J8a8hS3/Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drivenyoung)
