At the age of 12, #JaylenBledsoe started his own information technology consulting business, Bledsoe Technologies, LLC, with only a $100 investment, and within two years he had 150 contractors working for him and increased the value of his company to $3.5 million.
Now at 18, Bledsoe has had success in several areas including start-up businesses, brand and business development, venture capital funding, direct #marketing platform development and implementation, #entrepreneurship and increasing revenue streams. Bledsoe even boasts celebrity clients like Jordin Sparks and Steve Harvey.
When asked about his success, Jaylen will honestly tell you that it hasn’t always been easy. His parents were only 16 years old when he was born, and his upbringing was filled with struggles. Knowing that he wanted to do more and be more than what he was born into, he continued to look forward to the big picture and to the blessings he had been given, and truly made an effort to strive toward excellence in everything he chose to do. His positive thinking, great determination, and willingness to never give up has led to his amazing and inspiring success.
Like he said himself, “Don’t let your setback cause you to sit back, prepare for your comeback!" #youngblackandgifted #youngmillionaire #ceo #boss #melaninmagic
