Justin really is a tiger. What do you think of this article? He started his lawn care business at 15 and by the time he was 18 he had a staff of 28! Have you ever met anyone that was able to do that?

How would you like to have a lawn care business with a staff of 28?

Profile: Justin Moran - "I was 15 and I couldn't even get a job for free. It could have been bad luck; I might have had too many freckles. The only way I knew how to make money was to mow lawns," says Moran.

In three years Moran had turned his lawn mowing business in Melbourne's suburbs into a thriving business with 28 staff. At 21, he sold out and built the BBNT fast food franchise from scratch with one of his former clients. After winning a string of rewards, Moran sold out again to start two bars in Melbourne.

"For 10 years, everything I touched turned to gold. I was way ahead of my mates, I owned my own place, I had plenty of cash and a great lifestyle. But my arrogance got me into trouble," says Moran.

Have you known people who found too much success in their lives too soon and just couldn't handle it?

I wonder what kind of trouble he got into.
