What enabled Judah to come this far
To succeed in any aspect of life, you have to face a large number of hurdles. People always judged him for his young age. To prove himself and his ideas, Jacob showed traction on a global scale "You need to demonstrate results so people will take you seriously. You need to find people who believe in what you are trying to achieve and leverage their resources."
Ironically, Judah believes you might be called "lazy" or "irresponsible", or not be taken as seriously as someone who is older. While networking, you might come across older professionals who doubt the sustainability and credibility of your business.
Don't let the ageism get to you. Behave professionally at all times, and treat others fairly. Eventually you will gain a reputation for maturity and be considered worthy of trust and respect by the older set.
Deal with discouragement by surrounding yourself with people who believe in you. Above all, have confidence in your own abilities.
Here is what Jacob is moving onto
The potential of the VR/AR space is vast, it is the next major computing platform which is . There are already a number of VR-based social platforms that allow friends or strangers to meet up and chat or play in virtual environments, such as VR Chat, AltSpace VR, and Rec Room. As with VR in other fields, the growing level of immersion that is possible thanks to new technological developments will make them more useful and more attractive to mainstream audiences throughout the coming decade.
A lifehack to guarantee success Judah says is "connecting with like-minded individuals from a young age, if you hang out with 5 millionaires, you will be the 6th". What it took for Jacob to be noticed was showing traction and results on a global scale. Jacob was quizzed about what makes an app go viral, he said he is: "always customer-centric with every decision made". He says he will continue taking risks on talented and ambitious individuals who have big ideas.
Judah's net worth is estimated to be £100 million and we expect that his fortune will grow exponentially in 2021 and 2022.
