Even from a young age, Glenn Fedale Jr. knew how to make profits go through the roof.
"When I was like 9 or 10, I started buying sodas at the local market," Fedale recalled. "I'd get a pack of 12 for $3.00, and I'd sell them for 50 cents each in front of my house. I'd make a $3.00 profit, and that was big money for me."
Growing up in Wilmington, Delaware, the oldest of 10 siblings, there was a constant need to hustle. Fedale's father worked as a print salesman, and his mom stayed home to raise the large family. His parents lived paycheck to paycheck. And while the family never wanted for food on the table, they also never had a lot.
"Clothes were always hand-me-downs from older cousins. Sneakers were always worn till they had holes in them," he said.
Yet it was this lack that drove Fedale to want more.
"I always wanted to develop a freedom from financial worry. ... I was always coming up with something new to make money," said Fedale, whose personal net worth is currently estimated at $60 million.
Well before Fedale's profits went through the roof, though, he went onto the roof—literally.
