Hey guys, I know I’ve been M.I.A. these last few weeks, but I’m back and ready to give you tons of updates on what I’ve been working on these past few weeks. Let’s first get back into our routine.It’s another “lovely” Monday and so it’s time for the entrepreneur of the week where we focus on young successful entrepreneurs as a means of motivation for those of us still trying to be successful.
This week’s entrepreneur is Ephren Taylor of City Capital Corporation and at the tender age of 25, is the youngest African-American CEO of any publicly traded company EVER. Quite an accomplishment where you’re the boss and younger than all your employees. Guy’s like Ephren Taylor show signs of entrepreneurship at a very young age. In fact, he started his first business at the age of 12, where he created 3D video games and sold them to his friends for $10.
At the age of 17, Ephren went on to build a million dollar ($3.4 million to be exact) technology company called GoFerretGo.com, which was then rated #4 of Teen Companies Nationwide by YoungBiz magazine. The guy really has a lot of very serious achievements under his belt. Finally, in 2006 Ephren Taylor became CEO of City Capital Corp, where he oversees over $150 million in assets for a number of clients for clients from Wall Street investors to professional athletes.
Ephren runs a blog where he gives pointers on how to create wealth beyond six and seven figures. I would suggest subscribing to it. Also take a look at the video below where Ephren appears on the CNBC show The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch.
Well that’s it. If you liked my post please subscribe to my rss feed.
