"How this youngster's unexpected bout of being homeless inspired him to create disruption in the tech industry"

Long before the iPhone made him the god of gadgets, Steve Jobs launched his tech career by hacking landlines to make free long-distance calls.

Behind every success story is an embarrassing first effort, a stumble, a setback or a radical change of direction.

When you see someone who's very successful, you almost imagine that it was a foregone conclusion, that they're a genius, that they were destined for great things but what people don't read is the struggling story behind it.

Meet Quine Crews.

Picture this.

You are nineteen years old, you're printing a lot of money doing Network Marketing but you ended up blowing it all on materialistic things. The teen brain inside you takes away your humbleness and so, you get kicked out of your house.

You are forced to move in with friends. You are house jumping because there is no other option available. Even the friend's home is no more an option, and you end up sleeping in the car, during a cold, cold winter.
What will you do?

Meet this passion-preneur who ended up doing something unbelievable.

Quiane Crews is the founder and CEO of LPG Technology, Inc. Just like many success stories you read about, Quiane dropped out of high school in 2015 to pursue his dreams. Quiane found his success in 2016 after partnering up with a friend drop-shipping on sites like Amazon and eBay where he grossed $1.2M. Mr. Crews partnered up with Shenzhen Communications Co. where they developed smartphones, laptops and wearable devices. In 2017 Quiane parted ways from Shenzhen Communications Co. and started developing technology for his new tech startup LPG Technology.
What is even more surprising is, that he is merely twenty-two years old.

He, while dream-sleeping in a car of 2015, planned to launch a smartphone, and everyone around him found it insane.

Investors brushed it aside because of his age. Trust me when I say this, he was nineteen in 2015.

What is left uncaged, and free succeeds! At 22, when the young generation is faced with more confusions than solutions, Mr. Crews was successful in not only making his first million but also successful in launching a new smartphone.

Mr. Crew believes, "You cannot achieve success without the risk of failure. And I learned a long time ago you cannot achieve success if you fear failure. If you're not afraid to fail, man you have a chance to succeed. But you're never gonna get there unless you risk it, all the way."
