71: How an 18 year old built a 7-figure business with Cameron Zoub


As a 14-year-old, Cameron Zoub had an entrepreneurial drive. His pull towards business was so strong that he left the public school system and got his GED so he could devote all of his time to his business endeavors. Now at 18, he has successfully raised 1.4 million dollars through angel investments and paid back his original investment in full, in only one years time. Each startup has progressively increased his profits and exposure. Currently, he is running 3 companies, and ready to launch 2 more. His companies will exceed 1 million dollars in profits this year. His goal is to grow his capital so he can move into the VC space. One of the main reasons for Cameron dropping out of high school was due to the fact that he felt he was being held back. In the future, Cameron plans to enhance public schools and lead a widespread initiative to make extensive changes to improve the educational system while continuing to grow and start new businesses.

Cameron is a killer dude. He is only 18 years old and already has millions in sales under his belt…I had a blast chatting with him. If you want some proof that it’s never too early to attain massive success…listen to this episode!
