Pedro Milagre credits his childhood hustle as the reason behind being a successful businessman
After witnessing hardships in his early days, Brazil-based guy Pedro Milagre has now successfully made his name in the business world. Starting from scratch, the 19-year old looked for work from an early age. At the age of 11, he started working because he could not depend on his parents to fulfill his desires. During that time, Pedro started selling candies and made money to meet his needs. It helped him understand the concept of buying and selling during the age when kids were busy playing games. Remembering that time, he said, “Getting exposure to the world happened early and it has helped me in becoming what I am today.”
While has was 14, he moved to Belo Horizonte and the hard work in his life continued there as well. At that time he met Romerinho, a guy who suffered from leukemia. The two became good friends and after learning about his health, Pedro initiated a campaign and raised 250K dollars in 2 weeks for Romerinho’s cancer treatment. When the campaign was initiated, it helped Pedro in many ways as he got in touch with many businessmen. “The businessmen from whom I raised money inspired me with many business ideas. After a proper understanding, I started selling bracelets online”, quoted Pedro. In less than a year, Pedro sold 3,000 units of bracelets.
Later, he led several other initiatives and in 2017, he established a project called Protagonistas and sold all the bracelets which were left in stock. At the time he got in college, the young guy with his business acumen learnt how to smartly earn money. During college, Pedro was looking out to invest in a business venture which happened in 2018 and 2019. The young entrepreneur joined hands with Pkllipe who is one of the well-known Instagram personalities. On associating with Pkllipe, he said, “It’s always a plus point when you get to work with like-minded people. Many of our business ideas match and we aim to bring out the best in each other.” The thorough determination and disciplined work ethics have made the 19-year old one of the best business minds in Brazil.
