We hear a lot about the value of pulling oneself up “by the bootstraps,” but what if you don’t have bootstraps? This weeks podcast with Aimee Elizabeth is about just such a “bootstrap-less” entrepreneur. Out of the house and homeless at 15, Aimee finished high school and in just a few short years has become a multimillionaire who now spends her time helping homeless teens.
Although you may not have heard about this real-life rags-to-riches story, in her book, Poverty Sucks! How to Become a Self-Made Millionaire, she outlines how she did it, the mistakes and successes she had along the way, and how you can duplicate her success in your own business. This was a fascinating interview.
If I have ever met anyone who has pulled themselves up from the bottom to be a success, here she is.
