At 14, Sean Belnick took $500 and started selling office chairs online. Today, he's running a $24 million furniture company whose customers include Microsoft, Google, and the Pentagon.

Stories like this further validate that the myth "You need money to start a business" is false. I started with $900. This kid, $500.

"I can't start a business because I have no money" is an excuse.

Money certainly makes it easier, but by all means, isn't an exclusionary factor unless you intend on starting an airline.

Glad to hear he's had all of this success while still being able to maintain a strong devotion to academics by gaining admission into Emory. Very impressive story.

It doesn't say when the business started, though. I'd assume it was sometime around 2000 or 2001?
