Although his mom was a teacher, she didn’t object when he dropped out of college. There was one catch: Lucas Bédout (pronounced Luka Bedoo) had to get a job. Initially, he decided he’d become a tennis coach but in the words of his manager, he was too bad at tennis to train at the pro-level and, he couldn’t afford the training necessary to become a tennis coach.

Listen in as he tells Jonaed about his mental health struggles, how an online game led to his software engineer career and why you should never blame yourself for failing.
