There's no handbook for becoming a successful entrepreneur. But "The Cheat Code," by 26-year-old Brian Wong comes pretty close.
It all started when, after skipping four years of school and graduating college early, Wong decided to further fast-track his career. Along the way, he learned a lot about what it takes to be your own boss.
In "The Cheat Code," Wong shares more than 70 strategies for getting more out of life.
CNBC highlights five of his tips below:
1. Stop comparing yourself to others
"It's a waste of time to compare yourself to the upper echelon of the whole world," he says. "You'll always lose and when you do, you'll feel like a loser."
The CEO recommends instead that young people focus on improving themselves.
"If you can be a better you every day, you can win the race."
