#29: Scaling Mentorship to Help Others Find Their Paths, & Designing a Life You Love w/ Alex Schachne, Founder & CEO of Paths
“If you design your life to where you love it, you never need to escape it” — This is the core life philosophy of Alex Schachne, today’s guest.
Alex is a former college basketball players and a 2nd time founder.
But Alex didn’t always have a clear idea of what path he wanted to take in his life. So Alex went on a quest to interview incredibly successful people and hearing each person's life & career story gave him a chance to see which paths truly resonated with him.
These conversations changed what Alex thought was possible for his future.
Alex now claims that his life’s “path is” to help people find theirs — to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.
This led Alex to build Paths — a social network for students to explore life & career paths, and get advice or mentorship through short audio clips.
Alex is a solo founder and is currently a one man army, where he has built and done everything on his own.
He’s still early in his journey as a founder, hasn’t raised a huge sum of money, and is still figuring out a lot of things, just like many of us.

- Alex’s journey from being a college basketball player to becoming a founder
