John Dasburg, ASTAR Air Cargo

ASTAR Air Cargo is a Miami-based cargo airline that serves over 40 airports and offers freight service to the US Department of Defense. The company’s CEO is John Dasburg, who displayed uncanny business acumen from the time of his very first job.

At the age of 10, Dasburg decided to earn money by mowing his neighbors’ lawns. However, he took on too many jobs, and he realized that there was no way he could do it all himself. He dealt with the situation by farming out some of the territories to his friends, and taking a cut of their payments.
