The Corporate Life Because my income from my businesses was not stable, I decided to get a “real” job.
I was only fifteen, and the only local place I could find a job at was Knott’s Berry Farm, in the park services department.
The department I worked in sounded cool, but I was in charge of picking up trash, emptying trash cans, cleaning restrooms and sweeping up vomit.
Although the job was less than glorious, I loved it because I got paid a few cents more per hour for cleaning the restrooms compared to most of the other jobs at Knott’s Berry Farm.
Soon after, I was known as the kid in high school who was selling black boxes.
I then decided to capitalize on this by purchasing cable black boxes in quantity on e Bay and then selling them to my classmates as well as their parents.
Neil has also been awarded Congressional Recognition from the United States House of Representatives. From the beginning, I had entrepreneurship in my blood, but I’ll get into that a bit later.
I quickly realized that I could only make a few dollars a CD, so as a more profitable venture, I started selling black boxes.
I noticed that many of the kids in my school were fixing up their cars with after-market parts, so I decided to get into reselling automotive parts.
I picked up a resellers permit from the State Board of Equalization, which allowed me to buy car parts at a discount and sell them to other students.
All of my uncles on my mom’s side had multiple businesses, which led them all to be successful.
My uncle’s entrepreneurship rubbed off on my mom, and she started her own home daycare business.
My sister was working for an Oracle consultant locally, and she introduced me to him.
