Neil Patel Early life
Neil Patel was born on 24th April 1985 in London, UK. By the age of 2, he moved to Orange County in California, the USA with his family.
His uncles had a business in the US, and his father worked with them. His mother was a teacher at first, but then she started her own business in daycare. Her business was successful, though not highly profitable.
Neil and his sister lived a middle -class life, but as Neil once described it, no “Rich”.
Neil Patel & Entrepreneurship
- Doing Business at High school
Growing up surrounded by entrepreneurs (His uncles’ own business & Mom’s daycare) who think positively had a great effect on Neil’s personality. He has been always thinking about how to grow and achieve a better lifestyle.
His attempt to gain his own money was at his high school. Neil was 15 years old, and he started selling burned CDs to his fellow freshman students inspired by a cousin of his. Then, he started selling black boxes and hacked Satellite TV cards to classmates and their parents and generated a few thousand dollars as a profit.
Recognizing that what he sells might be illegal, he decided to start a legitimate business. He picked up a reseller permit from the State Board of Equalization which allowed him to buy car parts at a discounted price and sell them to other students.
- Working Under Different Corporates
Since his income was not stable, Neil decided to have a step forward and start a job. Therefore, at the age of 15, he got employed by Knott’s Berry Farm in the park services department.
Three months later, Neil started a new job at Quality systems. He received a few hundred dollars commission per sale. He was selling $1,600 Kirby vacuums by visiting American families and offers cleaning their carpets using the vacuum for free, and then sell it.
He quit the job after realizing that the price of this vacuum is way beyond the average American family’s budgets.
Neil Patel & Monster Jobs
After getting to know his sister’s boss at an oracle consultant company, where his sister worked, he started to re-think on how to generate more revenue.
He turned out to monster jobs searching for Oracle consulting jobs, but instead, he was inspired by Monster.com business model. As a result, at the age of 16, he created his first website “Advice Monkey”.
In order to make his website successful, he had to hire two marketing companies which both did nothing. He ended up losing his savings and being broke. Then, he decided to learn internet marketing himself. Advice Monkey was a popular website, but not successful as it did not support credit card transactions.
Neil Patel & Career Path
Neil decided to take his sister’s advice, and, with her support, he started general education college courses at Cypress Community College while still in High school.
The main reason behind his decision to enroll at the college was that Neil made up his mind to start his own business, but being under 18 years old, and without a degree made it impossible to accomplish at the time.
Neil Patel & his first Marketing Consulting Client
As part of his study, Neil had to give speeches, and during one of his speeches on “How Search Engines work”, one of the attendees asked him to consult Elpac Electronics on their Internet marketing strategy. Neil managed to lock Elpac at 3,500$ per month.
This success with his first client encourages him to start up an internet marketing agency named Advantage Consulting Services in a partnership with his sister’s husband (boyfriend at the time).
Luck was again on Neil’s favor when the son of Elpac owner, who owns an ad agency admired what Neil did at Elpac Electronics and new contracts from new clients started coming on their way.
A Bad curve on the way
Neil Patel lost over 1 million USD by investing in Vision Web hosting company.
Establishing Crazy Egg
After Neil and his partner (Hiten Shah) lost in investing, they decided to a new company called Crazy Egg. However, they continued running their Internet marketing Agency to pay for Crazy Egg software development.
Crazy Egg was doing well, but it did not feature a billion-dollar company as its market size is very limited.
The foundation of KISSmetrics
Neil and his business partner decided to come up with another analytics company that would solve a larger problem than what Crazy Egg solved. Therefore, they launched KISSmetrics in 2008.
Their new company is on constant growth, and they released more software products under this brand. Also, they raised more venture capital from other venture firms and a few prominent angel investors in Silicon Valley.
