Amel Elezovic was born in the year 2002, which makes him just 17 years old. This teenager, dropped out of school and made a bold move. He wasn’t interested in attending school. He said that the education they provided at school wasn’t the education he needed.
He predicted that this decade is going to witness a hike in video content. And that’s what happened. Amel is into producing video content on YouTube and software engineering. He is today the owner and CEO of a popular gaming software, with 2 YouTube awards.
When asked what inspired him to take such a huge step, he shared that if Bill Gates could do it then why can’t he.
Another thing that inspired him to change his life is his upbringing. Amel has Bosnian and Serbian roots, which he inherited from his mother. Growing up, she was the one who was the bread winner of the family. Suffering through financial constraints made Amel realize that he can change his future.
He dropped out of college after his first year because he believed that he saw a great opportunity in the digital market. When asked about what would be his advice to fellow entrepreneurs, he says, “Never give up, keep pushing”.
Amel shared his experience, that running a business isn’t easy. It is constant worrying, sometimes you lose thousands of dollars. You will get a headache doing business. But it’s worth it. Pushing through the problems is the key to success. Now Amel works with several well-known companies and gets to travel around the world.
Amel’s story is inspiring, growing up he had little help from his mother and none from his father. This is what motivated him to start a business of his own. He did some research and started producing content. And now he is a huge success.
