everyone has to have a little ego, but its not why i posted my story, i posted it because honestly i dont really tell alot of people about it because of that, i dont want them to think im bragging or something, but ive been on here and there are alot of cool people so i thought id share it with hopes they would enjoy the journey i went through to get where i am. its no different than reading a book on some dudes success, which there are a million of.

I am 19 as well. I took business classes all through high school and went to states for a business turnement. My dad passed away a little over a year ago and had the entire cleaning contract to cobo hall in detroit at one point. He didn't leave me a cent, but he did leave me all the cleaning supplies to make millions one day. I have that same go get them spirt he did. And to be perfectly honest I am building a business around metro detroit slowly but surely bringing 35,000 $ a year and that is not much money when your trying to run a business. I started from scratch and no for a fact how hard it is for people to take you seriously at the age of 17 18 and 19. There is no way you have acomplished everything you posted. You bragged about it by flaunting it to everyone on the fourm. Not trying to be a dick but there are only a handful of kids our age with companies that big. They are the euntrapeniurial prodegies. Like behtoven but for business.

I would believe if you had some of what you said. But you went overboard with the bullshit.

that's cool man, its hard trying to get people to take us seriously, i tell people about the bounce house business, and they laugh, little do they know im pulling in over 50k a year just on weekends, call it bullshit i don't care, i know its true its all that matters. ill put it on anything that everything pictured i owned, and that's not even everything, its not impossible, everyone is making is seem like it is?, and i only posted pics because the person on the first page asked for them. i also started from scratch with ONE dirtbike, and traded up, and up and up,

I had doubts, i mean someone who knows nothing about cars, profiting so much from them. But also because most people on the internet need to lie to make themselves look more interesting.


I guess my biggest question is, where do you keep all those cars and motorcycles? The side by side looks like it fills the garage and you only have two spots in the front.

You are still a somewhat confused and lonely individual, But I'm going to help you out, I am willing to pay for your flight "SERIOUSLY" so you can take a vacation and relax, I want to meet you, if my offer does not stand, Invite me to come see you and I will pay for it myself. I love vacations, and i love to meet fellow FRF members more.

LOL, I probably am. No need to pay for my vacation though. You go ahead and take one, come to PA I will even pick you up at the airport, We can meet then. That offer stands always and then we can talk about things face to face or hell, you can even call me and we can discuss things more in depth rather than typing it out. Yes, This is an official invitation

You should meet the dealer I bought my truck from. It's impossible to explain to him anything that went wrong with a vehicle, yet he still rakes in the dough.

A con can con anyone without knowing one thing about something. It's just their trait.

It's like how I can't get a woman.

Man that story sure does seem hard to believe, but more power to ya man. I started doing my line of work at 16 making 350 bucks a mont now I'm 18 almost 19 and have my own business as well gettin about 5 to 10k a month but definitely is difficult being young and getting work with lack of experience, but my dad was also international builder of the year a few times so it does give me a foot in the door in my industry. I just don't understand how bounce houses make so much money in this crappy economy haha you must have some serious skills haha
