We sure hope you had a lovely vacation and relaxing break from the pressure’s of your everyday life because we’re about to undo all of it with the following news: Forbes’ 30 Under 30 is out.
If you don’t know what this list is, it’s a parade of men and women, all under the age of 30 who are smarter, prettier, richer and all around way better than you. Everyone’s worst nightmare is seeing a former classmate, lover or friend on the 30 Under 30 list.
Some of the highlights from this year’s list:
Emerson Spartz, 28
Founder of Dose
Spartz began being better than you after he started homeschool and launched MuggleNet, a Harry Potter fan site that many millennials are probably familiar with, when he was just 12 years old.
Amanda Gutterman, 24
Founder of Slant
Gutterman founded a publishing site called Slant where young writers can make money instead of working unpaid internships. A truly novel concept.
Ritesh Agarwal, 22
Founder and CEO of OYO Rooms
After skipping college, Agarwal founded the Airbnb of India which as of today has raised more than $125 million in funding.
The tears! They taste so bitter! Read the whole list while crying on Forbes.
