He started an internet yellow pages company in 1994 when he was 17. He had no idea how to run a business… People thought he was crazy for even starting.
Made close to a million dollars by 22.
Spent a lot of money and did a lot of stupid stuff. Bad investments and companies that went bust left him at rock bottom by 25.
