When Phil was only fifteen, he starting improving websites¬†and creating his own webpages. While doing so, he learned many things about running a business and won a four-year college entrepreneurial scholarship. Eventually he went on to sell one of his sites for 1.2 million dollars.
Of course, not everyone can expect to make a million dollars from their micro business. Having started¬†his business to learn and earn some money, Phil never planned on being a millionaire by the age of twenty-one.¬†Phil entered college with a strong¬†entrepreneurial background, majored in Marketing, and has plans to¬†attend graduate school.
Like Phil, start small (micro!) and learn invaluable skills!
