Business Advice From Kevin Zhang That Every Young Entrepreneur Should Know

Kevin Zhang is a Vanderbilt University undergraduate who has gone against the status quo and proved to everyone that just anybody could achieve success without following the traditional route.  Unlike his fellow alumnus, Kevin had made a wholesome profit of $30 million only after a year of launching his eCommerce platform.

This might sound a bit crazy, but with this method, he’s achieved a lot of success. Kevin has gotten over 125,000 customers spanning well over 15 countries, and his firm has hit over $200 000 in sales last year. 

He also gives credit to his ability to work hard and the dedication shown by his team members.
