Secret Academy Episode - Robert Quarantello

Robert Quarantello worked his whole life towards one goal, being a cop. He worked towards this goal for most of his life, before having to drop out of the Police Academy. He saw the nastier side of the world, filled with crime, violence, and hatred and didn’t want to continue making money that way. So he did what we all have done, decided to start a business so we could be our own bosses and make money OUR way. Robert’s first company was inspired by the students in the academy, he founded a aerial drone business and took it from $0-$135,000 in 11 months before being bought out and moving on to his next venture, phone flipping. Robert practices his phone flipping today, making a hefty side income while still working a conventional 9-5 job as a teacher, proving that no matter who you are or what you do, anyone can achieve their goals if they work hard enough.
