Homeless kid becomes Lamborghini driving millionaire at 25
A 25-year-old man who was homeless as a child, has revealed how he became a multi-millionaire in just two years
A man who grew up in poverty and was homeless as a child has revealed how he became a millionaire – going from struggling bartender to penthouse owner with a Lamborghini in just two years.
Branden Condy, an entrepreneur and Instagram influencer, started life in hardship.
The 25-year-old was made homeless as a child after his single mother was unexpectedly laid off work, with the family given just 12 hours’ notice to vacate their house, The Sun reports.
They relied on the kindness of friends and couch surfing to keep a roof over their heads – although were sometimes forced to sleep outside.
Branden’s mum worked long hours to make sure her children didn’t go hungry.
“I was often left home alone while my mum worked long hours to pay the bills and keep food on the table,” Branden told Jam Press.
“She tried so hard and loved us so much, but things were really difficult back then.
“When my mother lost her job, we were asked to leave the house with a 12-hour notice and had to sleep outside.
“We had to use public bathrooms daily and eventually started jumping between different friends’ homes.
“At that time I was scared and lost; this is where my drive comes from because I never want to have anyone in my life be in that position ever again.”
The difficult childhood gave Branden a strong work ethic.
Determined to protect his family from future struggles, the entrepreneur got his first job at 16, as a dishwasher.
By 21, he had worked his way up to cleaning yachts for the rich and famous.
Branden was so inspired by the lives he saw that he set out to create the same for himself and just five years later, he did.
The young man is now a millionaire with a Lamborghini and designer clothes, who takes regular luxurious holidays – and he did it all by starting an Instagram marketing company, called Branden Condy LLC.
This involves increasing Instagram followers through celebrity giveaways.
“When I was younger, I saved up all the money I earned and began to work on growing my Instagram following,” he said.
“I read a book that told me to get me exposure and attention, and so I thought that focusing on social media would do just that.
“But I also followed different entrepreneurs who had the lifestyle I wanted and reached out to them to find out how to get there myself.
“That’s how I met my new business partners. I started talking to some guys in Arizona who ran a successful Instagram marketing business.
Fast-forward two years and Branden is now a multi-millionaire with an impressive 238,000 followers on his Instagram – making $25,000 profit every month.
But the entrepreneur is determined never to forget where he came from.
“A lot of people just seem out for cash and recognition. If they fail, they have family and friends who’d bail them out in a heartbeat.
“My rise comes from a somewhat different place and though I almost hate to admit it, a lot of it is fear that my future will look a whole lot like my past.”
