For this week’s feature in the 10X Kids series, I’m proud to share the story of a young man I met who is truly 10X. At only 14 years old, this kid is a business owner.
At one of my 10X Business Boot Camps last year, this smart kid got up on stage with me. He asked what advice I would give to someone young like him and what he could do to start now.
Firstly, I congratulated him for being at the event in the first place. After that, I helped him set an earnings target for himself.
By the time he stepped off the stage, he’d already made $1,800 just from the 10X audience.
The kid’s name is Parker Redlevske, and I knew he was already setting himself up for massive success.
Today, the kid is a real business owner
As of Monday, May 2, Parker is officially the owner of Techy Waterville, an electronics repair store in Maine.
And it all started from his 10X courage on stage at my event.
You see, the video that captured the moment got a lot of attention online — including that of Timothy Phelps, the co-founder of Techy Company.
“When I [was] watching this video, Parker’s standing there, and I’m thinking, ‘Look at this youth. He wants to start his own business, and that’s exactly what we need in Techy.'”— Timothy Phelps statement for News Center Maine
After Parker was approached by the Techy executive online, he quickly raised the capital required on his part to open a shop. While Redlevske contributed $20,000, the whole business launch totaled to nearly $100,000, which Techy helped cover.
My 10X team and I salute Parker Redlevske for becoming a business owner as a kid and we look forward to hearing more about his future success!
