Could your online business land you a great job as Vice President of a national marketing company? It did for Alex Houg! The then-15-year-old Plymouth teen began his own online micro business which sold gaming accessories as a way to use his technological skills. To grow his business, Alex began to study marketing strategies and within months became a successful online businessman. Soon after, he started to offer marketing advice to local businesses. This service caught the eye of Blacksmith Marketing, a company specializing in online business advice, 3 years later. 18-year-old Alex was offered a full-time job as Vice President. His small beginnings running a micro business opened the door for a full-time position that Alex plans to keep for the rest of his life!
