- A 19-year-old girl, Liv Conlon, says she made her first million after starting a fake nails business
- Conlon went from starting a fake nails business to setting up a business which temporarily furnishes empty properties before they are sold
- The girl says she was bullied in school because she was getting good grades
- According to the teenager, she made her first million by the time she was 19 years of age
A 19-year-old girl, Liv Conlon, has said the bullying she went through in school because she was getting good grades motivated her to make something of herself by starting a fake nail business at 13.
Six years after starting her business, Conlon made £1,000,000 (N475,547,800), the first million she would ever make, The Sun UK reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Conlon went from selling fake nails on eBay to running a property furnishing firm.
Conlon said: “Lying by the pool in Marbella, it felt good to relax. To the outside world, I looked like any 20 year old on holiday, but I’d actually been busy all day running the million-pound company I set up at 16. From a working-class background, I’ve earned every penny I have.
“I was bullied at school for getting good grades, and had to move to a new high school because of it. While it would have been easy to believe I was worthless, my mum Ali helped me realise it was not my fault, but a reflection of the bullies’ own insecurities."
Conlon said she set up her next business in 2015, a business which temporarily furnishes empty properties before they are sold.
Lee Taylor said: "Well done, but did she pay the tax man for any earnings over £118 a week, I bet not, but still a marvellous achievement."
Reacting on Facebook, Dee Wyld-Montage commended Conlon for her hard work and what she has achieved, saying she should keep on showing the trolls and bullies what she is capable of doing.
Claire Lawler said: "Wow that is actually my dream job! Well done to her. Amazing achievement."
Another Facebook user Trevor Difford also commended Conlon, saying her parents must be so proud of her.
Darren Jenkins said: "Fair play to her, she took the chance and earned the reward."
Sky Dove said: "I wish I had this opportunity. I would make more than that."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian man left many people amused after he took to the social media platform to reveal how he made his first million.
While the success story of many people usually involves a lot of struggle and perseverance through several ups and downs, for this Twitter user, however, it didn't take much for him to make his first million.
Nigerian filmmaker, Imoh Umoren, took to the Twitter platform to ask his followers how they made their first millions. While several people shared inspiring stories, Twitter user, Agbeja Ifedapo had quite a different story to tell.
Responding to the question, he wrote: "Traveled to Sierra Leone and changed 200 dollars. It was 1.5million Leone."
