Wil Massara – How This Teen Entrepreneur Leads Thousands

What if we told you you’re never too young to achieve your dreams. Now you’re probably thinking, as if! Well we have proof for you. Meet multi-award winning social entrepreneur Wil Massara from Perth, WA. He, like us, at Happow believes you’re never too young to change the world.  In 2018, whilst in high school, Wil launched Youth Leadership Academy Australia (YLAA) with the mission to empower youth through events and more. Wil’s first leadership conference was held in February 2018, which led him to speak at a youth conference in Hawaii. Wil’s entrepreneurial journey started at the age of 13. There’s quite a lot of layers to Wil’s story and a few surprises too.  Wil has now taken Youth Leadership Academy Australia nationwide hosting and facilitating events, school programs and community engagement initiatives positively impacting over 5000 students, from 125 schools, in 5 states, which is expected to rise to beyond 100,000 by 2022.  This again proves that age is NO factor when setting and kicking goals. Got a dream you’d like to achieve, in the words of Nike, ‘Just Do It.’ In this episode, Wil and Gianna chat about: how he started YLAA with just $80; how he got through high school whilst managing a business; launching his first business called planeapedia;  what it’s actually like to partner up with the likes of Qantas; the value in having a solid personal brand; and much more. Also, a bit of a warning, as part of this week’s challenge Gianna and Wil eat some pretty gross food, so enjoy listening to that! Let’s Power Up Life!
