While I might disagree with some of his methods, he shows pure hustler spirit.

    Hey,

    Thanks for the interesting link!

    The dude is a hustler, because he kept on going and didn't give up on making a living online. He knew it was possible so he tried different things until he found out what worked for him. That is a true hustler indeed.

    Thanks again!

    God bless,
    William Veasley

    Agreed on this.

    It doesn't hurt to have the hustler's spirit provided you're hustling toward something worthy.

    Thanks for sharing the inspiration

    Wow that's hustling all right:
    age 9 "I built a makeshift cooler out of styrofoam to keep them cold at all times and earned around $50 profit each summer."
    lmao that's pretty funny. Born a pro hustler.

  • Sounds like the diary of a con man and criminal. Almost everything the kid touches deals with counterfeit goods.

      Not overly, as the only thing he did knowingly illegal was the photoshop stuff.

      But lets be honest, all of us have done at least 1 thing in our lifetimes that was *looks around* "legal".

      Everyone has their own way of getting where they are today, some better than others.

        When I was about 15 or 16, Microsoft had just come out with Service Pack 2. Internet connectivity for most people hindered the process of installing it. The download was so big that many dial-up customers weren't able to get it in one 700mb chunk (remember when you had to re-dial NetZero or AOL once every 30-40 minutes?) As a result, Microsoft set up a web page where they let people request a free CD to be mailed to them. They limited it to one per household, but since I lived in a house, I figured out that putting "Suite 101," "Suite 102," "Suite 103" and so on would still deliver me the CD. I would get 20 at a time, and flip them on eBay for $4, $5, sometimes even $10. They cost me nothing to get and made me a good 40 or 60 sales.

        As *looks around* "legal" as it was, I learned good lessons from it: about customer service, about the value of testimonials (i.e., eBay feedbacks), and about PayPal's chargeback process when one of my "clients" (hehe) noticed the "THIS CD IS NOT FOR RESALE" notice on the CD cover.

        Wouldn't it be ironic if Microsoft hired me twenty years down the road?

    Nice Share,

    I would exactly brand the kid a criminal, he was only fifteen, and at least he was conducting business.
