Only a few young entrepenurs reach the top at 17-years- old. How do they do it? We’ve asked 17-year- old teen entrepreneur Sebastian Roman from Dallas Texas, to tell us his very own story on how to become successful at a young age. Before we get into the interview let’s give you more information about Sebastian. He’s currently 17-years- old and ended up selling his first successful company at the age of 16. As of right now he’s a Social Media Marketer and active Dropshipper working with the biggest companies in the world, and is working on the website such as Shopify.
Why did you want to become a Entrepreneur at such a young age?
Sebastian: When I first started working my first 9-5 job at 15 years old I quickly realized I couldn’t see myself doing this 10 years from now. I ended up studying everyday for hours on how I can make money online instead of focusing on school. Now don’t get me wrong school is very important and I recommend every teen to finish high school but growing up I always new school wasn’t for me when I always talked about how the school system itself didn’t correctly prepare kids for their future. After finally taking action when I was 16 I ended making a YouTube channel that miserable failed. I quickly relized that my social media had no growth and wasn’t able to make money from ad revenue so I ended up finding Shopify. I did my research for months and ended up making it a big company that I later sold as my first successful company! Now I own over 5 successful Shopify stores and have a YouTube channel with 200,000 subscribers!
How do you spend the money you make from all the businesses you own?
Sebastian: The thing with money is you will always see these “Wantrepreneurs” spending the money they make on expensive cars, clothes, jewelry, or on vacations. The problem with that is they most likely don’t really have a steady income so with the little money they get they use to make themselves seem successful. The real way I spend my money on is reinvestments, with every profit money I receive ends up getting used to make my profit bigger and bigger. I always tell my students that sign up to my course I would rather live wealthy for the rest of my life rather than just two years so you will never catch me with expensive clothing or weekly vacations. I would much rather stay at home everyday and work on my business so that I can party everyday when I’m older rather than partying everyday now and not being able to do it later in life.
What’s the one thing you want to tell to the upcoming generation?
Sebastian: I want to tell them to start a business when they are young and to start/work on it now so they don’t have to later. Think about the future family you will have and the life you want your family to live. Everything I do right now is for my future. People don’t realize their future is literarily in there own Hands!
