Self-employment has been blossoming over the past decade. In this age of internet and technology, people are now more confident to try and sell their ideas and hit the road to success. With even the basic skills like knowing how to create a website or marketing products online, people can reach out to the world and showcase their talent. Not many people can say they became an “successful entrepreneur” by the age of 22, but unlike most Jimmy Geib has been developing and designing websites for the past 7 years at just 22 years old. Not only has Jimmy created multiple booming websites he also presently owns two businesses named “LifeMavin” and “Geib Unlimited.” Jimmy has also seen success in various different Shopify stores he has created and sold to other entrepreneurs, mainly in the tech, apparel, and digital downloadable content industries.
Despite the fact that Jimmy is a successful and determined worker now, things didn’t come as easy while Jimmy was in high school. He knew by the age of 15 that instead of attending college he dedicated all his time studying programming, design, and marketing online. while having big plans for his future he had to deal with hurdles along the way. At age 13, Geib was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos (EDS) and at 20 he was also diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Disease. EDS is a disease that weakens the connective tissues of your body. These are things like tendons and ligaments that hold parts of your body together. EDS can make your joints loose and your skin thin and easily bruised. It also can weaken blood vessels and organs. Despite the challenges he faced (being in the hospital for weeks at a time, and going through multiple surgeries) he still is a well known, successful, intelligent young entrepreneur today. Jimmy is also known on TikTok (@JimmyGeib) for various types of content he creates. With a following of over 90 thousand followers, he plans to start a new business and plans to make the companies he has now even more successful. Jimmy Geib should be an inspiration to all young business owners, who would strive to be where he is currently.
