I have wanted to work in business ever since I was a kid. I created an imaginary Fortune 500 company when I was in fourth grade, and made my friends its executives. This ideal has been interwoven throughout my life ever since.
When I was a sophomore in high school, I started selling items on eBay that my family no longer wanted, and eventually expanded out to friends, their parents, their friends, until I had a full-fledged business working with dozens of clients. Originally registered as Kitsap Krap, then FJELauctions, and finally Auctions-on-Hudson, this entrepreneurial endeavor sustained me for most of my adolescence.
Kitsap Krap has taught me how to interact with people professionally and manage clients, methods of generating profits, calculating taxes, and advertising. I try to apply this experience to whatever task I may be faced with in business.
