Hearing his empowering story will speak to your spirit and let you know that you are not “stuck” and that you can change anything in your life, right now. Don’t wait, you have got to bloom where you are planted. The time for your best life is NOW.
When Farrah was very young, his single parent family was on public assistance and living in the housing projects on the South Side of Chicago. His mother was stricken with a heart attack and at the age of six, he decided that he had to find a way to support her. He began simply by painting and selling rocks he found in his neighborhood.
This brought him his first $50 as an entrepreneur and it forever changed his life. Whenever he is interviewed he always says that “I was determined to change my life not just despite but because of my circumstances.”
It is not where you’re from but where you are going…
He started a food company, Farr-out foods using his grandmother’s recipe for syrup and sold over a million dollars the first year. Farrah ultimately sold this company and was a newly minted millionaire at the ripe old age of fourteen. It’s how he learned how to make a difference.
He has since gone on to found a publishing company and a venture capital firm among other things. Here are a few brief media interviews Farrah did that are nothing short of inspirational.
Here’s an inspirational quote from Farrah that you’ll enjoy.
Comfort is the enemy of achievement. I believe that everything we want is on the other side of fear. We have to develop a healthy fear of not doing what we want to do.
