Published

With just a little over $6, 15-year-old Nathan John-Baptiste started a business selling candies and snacks from his school’s bathroom. Before he knew it, he was raking in almost $1,500 a week.

Baptiste, who is now known as the “Wolf of Walthamstow,” got his business idea after attending a talk by a millionaire who taught a lot about making money and the value of working hard.

“From year seven I was going down the wrong path. But this guy called Carl came in. I thought, I want to be like him,” recalled Baptiste in an interview with the Mail Online.

The 15-year-old student from London did not waste time after inspiration hit and he immediately bought and sold sweets to other students at the school, setting up shop inside the boys’ school bathroom. Orders are apparently made via Snapchat.

Baptiste started hiring one seller for his business but he eventually began employing 11 sellers to do his business across three schools.

In a report by The Sun, the teen entrepreneur boasted: “No one has done what I have. Other have sold sweets, I’ve created an empire.”

Unfortunately, Baptiste’s business was discovered by school authorities and he was instructed to cease operations.

“They asked me to stop selling bits at school,” Baptiste said. “I did my punishment in the isolation [detention] room for a couple of days,” he added.

His empire may have come to a halt, at least for now, but the student-entrepreneur is taking everything positively: “So, I’ll start investing in different things – I can’t sell sweets for the rest of my life.”

When asked about his future plans, Baptiste has a definitive plan in mind saying: “I would like to become stock broker – that’s one place where I want to put my money – and in property, 100 percent.”

“The plan is to become a millionaire. It’s just about the hard work,” Baptiste confidently quipped.
