This 19-Year-Old Developer Is So Successful, He Turned Down Apple

Last week, 19-year-old John Meyer dropped out of a prestigious university computer science program to work full-time on his tech startup, Fresco News.

His parents weren’t happy at first. He was attending NYU where his mom is a professor, he told Business Insider.

But they eventually came around to support him, because they had to admit: Meyer is already a successful independent computer programmer. He’s been writing apps since his freshman year in high school, 2008, after teaching himself the programming language Objective C.

And he’s been making money at it since his sophomore year of high school, he says.

“Money-wise, I’ve been pretty fortunate. I’ve been able to support myself since just a year after I got started,” he said.

Finance And Economics Comparison

Economics and finance are both business degrees. The difference is 5 or 6 classes taken at the end of college.

Here is a brief comparison…

Management Profession economists are hired as consultants by private and public sector. Finance is managed by individuals in families or by banks or other institutions.
Related Courses Philosophy of Economics, Laws and Economics, Political Economics. Accountancy, Chartered Financial Analyst and other
Definition Economics is a social science that studies the management of goods and services, including the production and consumption and the factors affecting them. Finance is the science of managing funds keeping in mind the time, cash at hand and the risk involved.
Branches Branches of economics include macro and micro economics. Branches of finance include personal finance, corporate finance and public finance.

Although they are often taught and presented as very separate disciplines, economics and finance are interrelated and inform and influence each other. Investors care about these studies because they also influence the markets to a great degree. Here we take a look at finance and economics, what they can teach investors and how they differ.

3 awesome tips for college going kids

When over 500 recent graduates were surveyed by Accounting Principals, they reported 3 big financial regrets about their college career (read the full report):

  • They wish they had more actively pursued scholarships and financial aid.

Rich ‘Dad,’ bankrupt Dad

“Robert and [wife] Kim are not paying out of personal assets. We have a few million dollars in this company, but not 16 or 20. I can’t do anything about a $20 million judgment . . . We got hit for what we think is a completely outlandish figure.”

The bankruptcy does not mean that Kiyosaki has gone personally bankrupt. On the contrary, he only made a business move to protect his personal and business assets outside Rich Global LLC. Companies file for bankruptcy when their liabilities are in excess of net realizable value of assets. Kiyosaki, in a business move to protect himself from the full impact of the judgment, has simply moved from doing business under the name of Rich Global LLC to doing business under the name of another company that he owns, Rich Dad Co.

6 Ways To Give Family And Friends Financial Aid

The simplest way to subsidize others is by using the annual exclusion, which allows you to give $13,000 in cash or other assets each year to each of as many individuals as you want. Spouses can combine their annual exclusions to give $26,000 to any person tax-free. For example, a married couple with a child who is married and has two children could make a joint cash gift of $26,000 to the adult child, the child’s spouse and each grandchild – four people – providing the family with $104,000 a year.
