The story of Freddie Figgers is one that perfectly fits that description. According to InspireMore, just shortly after his mother gave birth to him, she dumped him in a trash can in what can be described as utter heartlessness. Freddie conquered his uninspiring beginning and became a shining star at 29 years for many who dream of true success. It should be noted that Nathan and Betty Figgers came as his angels as they adopted him when he was a two-day-old baby. Their love and support were everything he needed to grow into what destiny already had planned for him.
It was said that since when he was young, he has been known to be very much given to deep thinking and commanded so much intelligence for his age. At the age of nine, young Freddie got his first computer. Though the computer was in a bad shape, he did not allow that to deter him as he fixed it up. He would years later at 12 get his first job as a computer technician. When he was 15, he launched his first cloud computing services, a business that started when he helped an Alabama car dealership store his files on a remote service to prevent a repeated loss of data.
Among his proud innovation was the shoe he made for his adopted father when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He was able to create a device that worked as a GPS and a two-way straight communicator, an idea he later sold for a Kansas company for $2.2 million (N723,000,000)
