Trevor Fey: from struggling with college to building a flourishing e-commerce empire

2 Mins read

For decades, there has been a traditional triangle to success in the modern world, and it involves the tried and tested formula of school-college-job. Yet, some choose to throw away the rulebook and blaze their trail. Entrepreneur Trevor Fey is one such individual.

“School was always a struggle for me because I had the habit of questioning everything. I was never the best at being told what to do or following orders,” explained the New Yorker. He adds, “In my bones. I never fully believed I’d follow the ordinary path of going to college for four years, accumulating some soul-destroying debt and getting shackled to a 9-5 merely to make ends meet.”

However, as so many of us do, Fey initially took the path of least resistance and attended Arizona State College. He was there for two years before he realized he was going nowhere fast and needed to shake things up.

The 22-year-old explained, “I’ve always been a go-getter and did whatever it took to make money when I needed to. It dawned on me in college that all I was doing was studying for years to graduate eventually and make lots of money for someone else. I’m a big believer that money isn’t necessarily the goal though it does give you the freedom to live your life on your terms, and so I decided to back myself and become my own boss.”

Dropping out of college is always a gamble and for the first year, Fey wondered if he had made the right decision. Jumping from one online opportunity to another began to feel a bit fruitless before he struck gold.

“I launched my own business on Amazon and within six months I was taking well over 1.5 million in revenue, and it continues to push over $300,000 a month in sales,” revealed Fey. “Realizing how big the e-commerce space is, has been an eye-opener. It’s such an accessible industry. All you need is a laptop, an active internet connection, a great idea, and a set of strong work ethics and you’re good to go.”

Fey’s e-commerce empire has given him the freedom to travel and work from anywhere in the world. The opportunity to live life on his terms without following the traditional path from college to full-time employment is something for which he remains eternally grateful.

Fey explained, “I’m only 22 but I’m already my boss and life couldn’t be better. I and others like me are living proof that you don’t need to go to college to be a success. The power of the internet has made it possible for people to do things differently and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
