In these times you would expect a teenager to be getting their start within a business like fast food, an internship with an accounting firm or something simple and relatively unambitious. However, Ian Purkayastha, at the age of a 19, is already an  international businessman whose approach through “networking” face to face has built himself a million dollar business is a little over 3 years. The business and product -  Truffles.

Most of us would wonder how anyone could make a boat load of money on truffles? However, truffles (a very expensive and rare underground mushroom) are by far the most-expensive ingredient in the culinary world, fetching up to $5000 per pound for the most desired varieties.

This just another example to help you and others like you to stretch your thinking around your career. Regardless of how old or young you are!
