Secret Academy Episode - Austin Netzley
About:

Austin Netzley wanted what many Americans dream of: a college education followed by a stable and high-salary career in the corporate sector. Not only did he achieve that by earning an engineering degree and securing a job at a large oil company in Houston, but he also accumulated over $72,000 debt in student loans. Coming from a middle class family, he learned the importance of being frugal and was able to pay off all his loans within 3 short years. After initially wanting to further his education with a master's degree while working, he realized that he didn't want to be a part of "the system" in the corporate world. He started day trading on the side, and a few years later was able to quit his corporate job to pursue his own business. Austin started a blog and podcast to teach others to take their money and mindset to the next level, and wrote a book using information he had learned from other entrepreneurs. Today, he helps publish and sell books for clients through his business, Epic Launch.
