Cameron Johnson, author of You Call the Shots, started his first business at the tender age of nine. He had started, run and sold 12 successful companies by the time he was 21. His business successes have been featured in Time, Newsweek, BusinessWeek, USA Today and many more, as well as on the Today Show and Good Morning America. When he was fifteen he became an advisory board member of a Tokyo-based company, and his autobiography, 15-Year-Old CEO, published in Japanese, became an instant best-seller.
He has consulted to Fortune 500 companies and is regularly a Keynote speaker at various conferences across the country. Every one of his businesses has been a success, even in the worst days of the Internet bust.
As a freshman in college, he started CertificateSwap.com, an online marketplace for gift cards, which was a runaway success and for which he was offered $10 million in venture capital. He and his partner sold the company instead. Today he runs several web-based businesses, in addition to consulting and sharing his expertise through various speaking engagements.
