I’m always impressed by young men who exhibit confidence and aren’t afraid of hard work. Jaylen D. Bledsoe is one such young man. I first read about him a few years ago while perusing my regular rotation of business sites. I was immediately impressed by this teenage entrepreneur’s grit, perseverance, and dedication.
Bledsoe started, Bledsoe Technologies, LLC, an information technology consulting company when he was only 12 years old. He got the idea to start a company while taking web-design classes in his school’s gifted-eduction program. With a large dose of determination, Bledsoe turned an initial $1oo investment into the number one information technology consultancy firm operated by a minor in the Mid-West. His expertise and success are multifaceted and include start-up businesses, brand and business development, Venture Capital Funding, direct marketing platform development and implementation, entrepreneurship, and increasing revenue streams.
Bledsoe is now 16 years old and his company recently rebranded to The Jaylen D. Bledsoe Global Group, which is worth nearly $4 million and employs 150 contracted workers. His Dare-to-D0 Confidence is what has made him an amazing entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and technical prodigy.
