There are people, like the boy who is the protagonist of the story we are about to tell you, who manage to make a decisive turn in their life, even if they seemed destined for suffering, difficulties and deprivation.
Harry Sanders, 22, from Melbourne, Australia, is a guy who knows what it means to have nothing, not even a roof to shelter under. The period of adolescence, for him, was not at all easy. So much so that no one, he first of all, would never have imagined that, thanks to willpower and perseverance, he would become a millionaire a few years later.
That's right: we are not describing one of those "impossible" stories, but the pure reality of a boy who has experienced difficult times, so difficult that he was forced to sleep on the street, without shelter and wandering around the city in search of leftovers. food. This was Harry's everyday life. After the bankruptcy of his father's company and some wrong investments, the young man found himself penniless, forced to live for the day.
Resilience, however, is a concept that he has learned to perfection and, more determined than ever to retire, has begun to study SEO techniques in depth with the aim of building what, within a few years, has become a company listed over 1.5 million dollars. The difficulties, for him, were not lacking. In addition to the financial hardship that led him to be homeless, his family relationships had also almost completely disintegrated.
"I started working for free for my clients - he said - I promised them that I would help them and that they could pay me later. I worked 100 hours a week, but it was then that things started to pick up".
Slowly but surely, his project paid off. Harry went on his own and created a digital marketing firm, StudioHawk, thanks to the help of several people who believed in him and became his staff. Things started to turn right, and evidently Sanders had also guessed the type of business to invest in.
It is no exaggeration to say that, at just 22, Harry became a millionaire, given the company's value of him. A story, his story, which in addition to inspiring many people, also led StudioHawk to win the Australian Business Awards in the Innovation Category Marketing category in 2019.
Certainly, the teenage period he lived on the street contributed in a fundamental way to the happy ending of this boy's story. Of course, situations are different from person to person and it is not always so easy to recover, but undoubtedly this story can and must teach us something: even through small steps, it is always possible to do something concrete to change.
