Who is Neil Patel?
These are just among some of the awards and recognition Neil has received. His success has not come on a Silverplate he has worked for it as he quotes. “you fail when you stop working always try and never give up…” The 32 year England born says entrepreneurship has been his passion since birth. The middle lifestyle the Indian family had because of simple jobs by his parents was the first motivating factor towards his entrepreneurship career. He attributes his entrepreneurship skills from his maternal Uncles who ran businesses and employed his parents.
The onset of his entrepreneurship
The average lifestyle was the first drive towards entrepreneurship. He sold CDs in school- John F. Kennedy high school because he saw the cousin make money but it did not yield much. He saw a gap in children who bought second-hand spares to fix their cars. He sold the parts to them and made good money. Ever since he has been able to create and venture into various mere jobs but that was a stepping-stone for better things to come. He sold vacuums among the middle-income earners in America; it did not succeed. He admits the reason he jumped from one business to the other is he was trying to find his passion. Finally, with a brother in law they decided to create Crazy Egg- a company which offers consultancy for internet and website needs. They made good money out of it nut they have also invested a lot in it. The moral lesson: you cannot make millions when you invest hundreds.
The future of crazy Egg is bright but he does not stop there. He has invested in a brick business, stock markets, apartments, venture capitals, website creations and CRM tools like Infusionsoft, it can be affordable. He even opened KissMetrics for website development and consultancy. This shows they took advantage of technology craze to develop new businesses and provide business solutions, which solves internet problems.
Unlike many entrepreneurs, once they make a lot of profit they change their lifestyle. For Patel, despite handling millions of Dollars before the age of 30, he maintained a simple lifestyle while investing surplus on other unrelated business. Business lesson: Invest in various businesses to give you a financial base during the tough times when your mainstream business is on its knees.
