The year was 2005 and Kevin was working for a large engineering firm. On the side, Kevin had been developing websites as a hobby, just like he had been doing since 6th grade. He had yet to consider the fact that he could continue this hobby as a career and make a profit. In episode 199 of Journey to $100 Million, Kevin shares the instance when he realized he was ready for something bigger than just sitting in a cubicle.
Although Kevin loved the engineering firm at which he was currently employed and appreciated the opportunity, he ultimately knew he wanted to start his own business. He started to explore and meet different business owners and individuals that began to request website designs, and for the first time, he was being offered money to build these sites! He started making money from these websites equivalent to what he was making at the firm he was working at. Once he realized he could make the same amount of money, if not more, he was hooked. He talked to his company about leaving to start his own business and the rest is history!
Be sure to listen in to the upcoming episodes where Kevin will be talking about how he started his business, the challenges, situations he had to deal with, and the groups & relationships he made that got Kevin where he is today!
