Early life[edit source | edit]

Neil Patel was born in London, England, in 1985. At the age of two, his parents emigrated with him and his sister, Amee to the United States and settled in Orange County, California, where he became surrounded with relatives and family friends who were hardworking entrepreneurs and owners of businesses that were striving.[3][9] Influenced by his uncles, Neil said he knew from the time he was a kid that he was cut-out to be an entrepreneur too.

Following after his cousins, from his high school days at John F. Kennedy High School, California, Neil sold burned CDs for $2 or $3, but shortly switched to a more profitable business - the selling of black boxes. He would purchase cable black boxes from eBay and resell. But as a matter of legal concerns, he got a permit from the State Board of Equalization and began reselling automobile parts.[9]

At the age 15, Neil Patel gain his first employment as a cleaner with better pay than the others then at Knott’s Berry Farm, California. But left the farm three months later for Quality Systems, where he went door to door for the sales of Kirby vacuum cleaner worth a thousand six hundred dollars ($1,600) each, for a commission on sale. A year after with Quality System, his sister Amee introduced Neil to Oracle consultant, where he learned about and inspired by its business model, he launched his first online venture - a job board website known as Advice Monkey at the age of 16 with his savings. He paid some marketing companies to help him grow the site, but he ended up being ripped off, and this affected his website very negatively.[9] This was the defining moment he realizes the potentials that digital Marketing holds, so he started learning about it to drive traffic to his website himself, taking his first step towards building his career as a digital marketer. And Advice Monkey earned some popularity a few months later, but failed to record much success as it wasn't transactional.[9]

While still in Kennedy's High, California, Neil Patel took his sister’s advice and enrolled in Cypress Community College, where he took general education courses, and few years later he became an SEO consultant - being consulted for a $3,500 per month SEO services, following a speech he gave in Speech 101 class on how search engines works.[9] And this was the start of his career in digital marketing.

Personal Life[edit source | edit]

Neil Patel and his family members (labeled)[9]

Neil Patel keeps most of his personal life personal, but he come from a humble background. His mother was once a teacher in London, his dad once worked for one of his uncles. His mother ran a daycare business when she left teaching, which did pretty well but wasn't enough to make a wealthy family.

Meanwhile, writing on his blog, Quicksprout, about how a day in his life looks like, Neil concludes by giving credit to his assistant, Aleisha Faggiolli, for being the brain behind his organized life. So, some people guess he doesn't have a wife.[9] But Neil Patel has a wife and a child.[10]

Neil co-founded an SEO company named Advantage Consulting Service (ACS) with Hiten Shah his sister’s then-boyfriend and now-husband in 2002. The company elicited the interest of some notable brands like Amazon, General Motor, Microsoft, Samsung and HP, which boast Neil's career making him increasingly notable in digital marketing.[9] From 2006 onwards, ACS was making sales upto $3 million annually.

Thus, in 2005, Neil Patel was ranked as one of the top influencers on the web by the Wall Street Journal.

About 6 months ago, no one in the online marketing industry knew about me yet in the last few months I have been covered in multiple trade publications such as the Wall Street Journal. I’ve also had job offers of six figures that would have let me finish college and work from home. A six figure income isn’t enough to retire on by any stretch but at 21 years old these aren’t bad offers at all.

With a bit of hard work and a few other tricks, you can become a rock star in your industry and get the reputation that makes money.
