Jeff Hall

[playepisode]

Jeff Hall never had a choice but to become an entrepreneur. At the age of 7, he sold candy because money meant escaping his life of poverty and neglect. At the age of 13, he acquired a reputation as a computer nerd at school quite by accident and began working on his school’s computers. At 15, he began his company, Overflow Cafe, in order to keep from being evicted from his home, and at 17 was lying about his age to get the commercial lease for his first office. Remarkably, he is still helping new and small businesses become popular online at Overflow Cafe 23 years later.
