In every machine, there are cogs. And then there’s the person who built the machine. There’s an assembly line, and then there’s the one who designed the assembly line process. These are the 32 Under 32. The people who think big and act quickly. The ones who learn the rules just to break them. The people who don’t give up at the words, “This is the way we’ve always done it.” These are the people challenging tradition, reinventing the industry and breaking the confines of corporate culture. And they do it all before turning 32.

So the question is, are you the hammer or the nail?
