Farrah Gray

Can a guy from the Chicago Projects help Change your Life?

I’ll Start by Selling Rocks

Did you ever have a day when you just felt stuck in life? You know, when you wonder how you could really make some major life changes based on your current “situation.”  Well, you’re going to enjoy the life story of Farrah Gray.

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.

    It’s indeed amazing to know that a fourteen year old boy became a millionaire. Thanks for sharing the interview. His success story is really inspiring. How wonderfully he said ‘Comfort is the enemy of achievement’. I think everyone of us who are planning to build our career as an entrepreneur should listen to this interview.

    Wow, the fact he made $1 million in sales in the first year of setting up his food business is nothing short of MEGA impressive. Add his age and I have no words. And then becoming a millionaire? At 14?

    His mom must be proud. So so proud. I don’t even know him and I’m proud!

    From someone who is always afraid, what he said here really hit me: “Everything we want is on the other side of fear.” I’ve never thought of another side. I tend to just concentrate on fear itself. Hearing what he said there is making me think I really have to push through the fear or else I’ll just be breathing instead of truly living.

    A truly inspiring young man. I must look for his book.

    Gosh, I can’t even remember what I was doing when I was 6 let alone 16. Seems like centuries ago! But I can tell you this: I was definitely not trying to sell something. Didn’t have the gift or the acumen. Farrah was born to do what he does. He seems to have completely embraced it from the get-go – never questioned it – just did what was in him to do. And that’s the lesson I’m taking away with me: to trust my gift(s) and follow my own bliss. It knows where it’s going even if sometimes I don’t.
