From High School Dropout to 22-Year-Old Millionaire: The Caleb Boxx Success Story

Many individuals grow up hearing the same things from their parents—you need to graduate high school, go to college and get a degree, and then you’ll land a nice, steady job that will support you and your family. There’s this belief ingrained in us all that our grades hold the key to our future. First to get into a good college, then to get a good job that makes our family proud.

The fact of the matter is a bit more bleak than the web our parents wove, however. Many study for years, take on thousands of dollars in debt, and then that degree they worked so hard for takes them to other places, or even nowhere. Or, they get the job and it isn’t anything like what they thought it would be. They’re miserable, they’re stuck, and they’re feeling hopeless.

Fortunately for some, like Caleb Boxx, founder of YouTube Automation and Automate Channels, they find out early on that the one-track plan for their future isn’t actually what they want. Boxx realized that there is more than just one road that can lead to success, and he started paving his own path at just 11 years old. Now, he’s a 22-year-old millionaire and he doesn’t have any regrets about the decisions he made to get where he is.

Starting Young

Entrepreneurship is a part of who Boxx is as a person. At 11 years old, instead of running around with his friends, Boxx created a website company. He would charge startups a fee to create their sites for them, though it’s probably safe to assume that none of them knew they had hired a child.

At 12 Boxx decided to take his wit and business savvy to YouTube, trying his hand as a gamer, though success didn’t strike right off the bat and he even quit the platform that his business now revolves around for a period of time.

“I started recording myself playing video games and nothing would ever happen,” said Boxx. “I was only earning $200 a month, so I quit the whole dream because it wasn’t working.”

At one point a friend of his went viral and amassed a million subscribers on YouTube. Boxx decided to once again chase his dreams, this time learning from someone who was already making that dream a reality. He turned into a livestream, donated the last $200 in his bank account, and asked for a quick call. He offered to edit his friend’s videos, write his scripts, and do a majority of his work all for free so he could gain admittance into his mastermind group.

This was the chance he needed and it wasn’t one he was going to waste. He wanted to be a professional so he started acting like one, gaining maturity and absorbing as much information about YouTube success as he could. He made vows with those in the mastermind group to focus solely on building their individual empires, setting a goal of reaching $1 million. Throughout this entire experience, he learned about more than just YouTube, he also learned about entrepreneurship.

Reaching Success

At just 16 Boxx used all the knowledge he had gained and created his first YouTube channel. A year later he made another one and immediately gained 80 thousand followers. After roughly six months with his channels, he was making around $20 thousand a month, a far cry from the $200 he started out with.

One thing led to another and he was giving 30% of his site revenue to one of his friends, helping them build their own successful channel. From there, revenue kept increasing and he was bringing in employees. At 18 he first started making seven figures, bought his dream car, moved to a new city, and started to study entrepreneurship more in depth.

It was at this point that people started to seek him out, asking if he could show them the ropes of YouTube and share the knowledge that helped him become successful on the platform. He created a business model and began to teach, allowing him to enter his 20s as a successful businessman. Now, Caleb offers a “done-for-you” mentorship program, where his company holds the hand of clients and manages all of their content. 

The path Boxx chose wasn’t exactly orthodox or without challenges, but it was his own and something he wholeheartedly wanted. He went from a high school dropout to a 22-year-old millionaire, generating over $3 million from YouTube automations. Sometimes the path to success looks different than we thought it would, but with hard work and perseverance, anyone at any age can make their dreams a reality.

The Miss NJ competition seeks a leader, a role model who inspires with both brains and heart. Enter Sara Zaimi, a trailblazing pharmacist with a Doctorate (PharmD) whose passion for women’s health and community empowerment burns brightly.

A brush with mortality at a young age – chest pain and a concerning blood test – ignited a fire in Sara. Witnessing the unwavering spirit of women battling cancer in the oncology ward solidified her desire to make a difference. It was her mother’s unwavering support, the way she held her hand through fear and doubt, that propelled Sara to answer that call. Overcoming self-doubt and depression, she embarked on a remarkable academic journey, graduating with her PharmD at the prestigious Rutgers University at the early age of 23, placing her among the top 10% of her class.

As a first-generation Algerian American, she’s a testament to the power of hard work and perseverance. Her academic achievements, including valedictorian honors and consistent Dean’s List placements, stand as a testament. This translates further into her successful business, where she champions women’s health awareness. Her impact extends far beyond the pharmacy walls. Sara dedicates her time to NJ Sisterhood, empowering young women and inner-city communities. Her fluency in Spanish further highlights her commitment to inclusivity and understanding.

Driven by personal experience and empathy, Sara aims to leverage the Miss NJ platform to tackle critical women’s health issues. From early detection of breast cancer to advocating for increased resources, she seeks to empower women to take charge of their health. Her work with NJ Sisterhood complements this mission, focusing on projects that empower women and address their specific needs. Her advocacy includes promoting 3D areola tattooing for breast cancer survivors, a powerful example of how science and art can converge in the healing process.

Sara’s strength lies in the synergy of her diverse experiences. Her business acumen and her work with NJ Sisterhood position her to champion women’s health and community well-being on a grander stage. She envisions using the Miss NJ platform to create tangible change, increasing resources for those affected by breast cancer and other women’s health issues.

The demands of a successful business, active volunteer work with NJ Sisterhood, and the rigorous training for the Miss NJ competition require exceptional time management skills. Sara thrives under pressure, meticulously juggling her commitments without compromising on quality.

Her multifaceted personality, unwavering commitment to women’s health, and passion for community empowerment make her a strong contender for Miss NJ. She embodies the true spirit of the competition: a woman who is not just beautiful, but a force for good, inspiring young women to reach for their dreams and embrace their unique talents.
