Though his business isn’t as all-pervasive as, say, Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook, 20-year-old Sean Belnick has still made an impact on his community and has a businesses with far-reaching popularity. With something as simple and ubiquitous as the common chair, the BizChair.com founder turned his $500 at the age of 14 into at least $24 million by 2006.
The company Belnick started from his bedroom now employs 75 workers.
His offerings include medical equipment, computer and office furniture, home furnishings and school furniture as well. With a base in Kennesaw, Georgia, and a warehouse (that stocks most of the things he sells) in Canton, GA, as well as notable customers like the Pentagon, American Idol and Microsoft, we’d say he is doing pretty darn well for himself.
