Click Here for Barry's Full Bio..

Barry started his entrepreneurial career when he was only five years old. He decided that he wasn't going to sit for hours in front of his house and try to sell a pitcher of lemonade. He loaded two pitchers in his wagon and took them to nearby construction sites and sold out in fifteen minutes. When he got back home, his friend's pitchers were still almost full. At age ten, he was given the worst paper route because he was the youngest but he tripled the number of subscribers within one year to one of the largest paper routes in Chicago.

Growing up on the Southwest side of Chicago automatically made you street smart if you wanted a chance at prosperity. To make extra money when he first got married, he sold Amway, Avon and a family portrait program door to door. By working on his own, he learned first hand the importance of great customer
service.

Then working on commission at a computer placement service, he became the No. 2 producer out of 40 people. To learn other types of businesses, he also worked part-time as a bartender at a bowling center, delivered pizzas and rose to assistant manager at a chain pizza store. Next, he worked evenings and weekends at a family owned Italian restaurant where he learned food service and how to handle slow and busy periods.

Now he was ready to take the plunge and try his hand at a business of his own, well almost. With another associate from the placement service, they opened an employment agency of their own as a partnership. After a year or so, Barry wanted more so he started a computer supplies distributorship at the same time
