Play • 49 min

At an early age, Anthony Lee was told he wouldn’t make anything of himself. He grew up in a poor family and was taught a poor kid from lower-middle class Alabama couldn’t rise up.

Unlike most, he found a way to lift himself out. He worked hard, struggled, and built a business, selling his products through Amazon.

In this episode of FailToLearn we talk about Anthony’s struggles and how they helped him get where he is today.
