12. Young Entreprenuers
The Scott brother’s have been extremely determined and driven their entire lives, which allowed them to start making money from a very young age. They started their first business (JAM Enterprises) at the age of 7 by selling decorative hangers. They turned a profit by charging $1.75 for hangers that cost .50 cents to make. At first they sold them door-to-door, but after striking a deal with a woman who owned a chain of Americana gift shops in Japan, their business began to grow. They even employed their classmates to help keep up with the demand! Not surprisingly, their interest fizzled after a while and they were on to the next venture.
