Caine Monroy is just 9 years old and he is a suitable candidate for the question,”Are entrepreneurs born or made?”
During the summer months when there was no school, he spent his spare time in his father’s second hand auto parts store.
There he made himself a games arcade out of old cardboard boxes. He started with just one game and created an entire arcade.
But there were no customers, but young Caine kept building his arcade like he was going to get a customer some day.
Then a young filmmaker came across the arcade.
He built a Facebook page which went viral and suddenly Caine got hundreds of customers. Now,he also has his own line of T-shirts and has been making money towards his college fund.
There are some serious lessons to be learnt here for any business man.
For one a great business idea plus the power of Social Media.In this case Facebook.
People could have gone to any arcade, but the story of the young boy creating an arcade and not having any customers caught the imagination of the people of LA.
