Cameron started his first business at the age of nine and before graduating high school, he had started twelve profitable businesses and made his first million. At the age of 15, he became the youngest American appointed to the board of a Tokyo-based company. His first book, titled “15-Year-Old CEO” was released in Japan that same year and it became an instant bestseller reaching #4 on the bestseller’s list.
After high school, Cameron briefly attended Virginia Tech but quickly decided his dedication belonged in the business world. While a freshman in college, his company had been offered a multi-million dollar venture capital offer – which he and his partner declined and instead, they sold the business.
In his early twenties, his book You Call the Shots was released by Simon & Schuster to much success. He was then asked to become a contestant and cast member of Oprah Winfrey’s first primetime television series Oprah’s Big Give which aired on ABC in 2008. He was the runner up on that show and he then moved to Los Angeles where he hosted a business television series for the BBC in London, among many other television projects.
After selling all of his internet companies in his early twenties, he continued to invest, travel, and appear for many speaking engagements and television appearances.
Today, he is the Chairman and CEO of Magic City Ford Lincoln – an automobile dealership in Roanoke, Virginia that was founded by his great grandfather in 1938. He is one of the few 4th Generation car dealers in the country and it’s certainly a passion of his.
Separately, he continues to invest in dozens of various start-ups across a wide spectrum of industries and he also invests in real estate and other projects of his own.
