Let’s talk for a moment about legacy. The rhetoric surrounding the idea mystifies it, like a timeless alpha notion without beginning or end. The truth though is that everyone starts somewhere, and with the myriad of news and media outlets out there today, it’s our duty to document and celebrate those creating legacies now for the future. Forbes concreted this idea with the launch of its “30 Under 30” list back in 2011, and here continues to create benchmarks for young creatives with the 2015 installment. The list is comprised of 600 young millennials (aged younger than 30 by the end of this year), spanning over 20 fields, highlighting the 30 most promising talents in each category. Amongst the honorees this year is HBA founder Shayne Oliver, who leads his category alongside familiar faces such as Ilana Glazer (Broad City), James Harden (Houston Rockets) and Jezebel Editor-in-Chief Emma Carmichael. Head over to Forbes to get started exploring the list.
