He purchased his first house using only his knowledge, creativity and a little bit of money that he had earned at his part-time job. By the time he was 10 years old, he attained his Ohio Professional Housing Provider Certification (O.P.H.P.). This made him the youngest person to ever attain this certification. He started investing in single family homes. Within three years, he had bought 20% of a 60-unit complex. At 11 years old, he published his first book about his successes and setbacks. By the time he was 12 he started taking classes at Kent State University.
