Mark Metry, 21 years old, is nothing short of a prodigy. The child of Egyptian immigrants who moved to the US when he was a baby, Mark first became an entrepreneur at age 12 when he started a hit Youtube channel focused on the video game, Call of Duty.  Today Mark is the founder of VU Dream, a marketing agency focused on virtual reality and mixed reality worlds. He took to the internet at a young age to escape loneliness, and taught himself both the technical skills and management techniques to grow successful businesses. At age 15, he had created and was profiting from the world’s most popular Minecraft server, something he developed after simply playing the game and thinking he could improve on it. In addition to founding VU Dream, Mark also hosts the Top 100 podcast Humans 2.0, the aim of which is to help people conquer their inner demons and live a life free from mental and emotional setbacks. He became passionate about this after escaping his own self-proclaimed “socially anxious prison”. Wise beyond his years, Mark Metry joins us for an honest and insightful conversation about finding the life you want to live and how he hacked his way to professional and personal happiness.
