This 14-Year-Old Kid Turned Down A $30 Million Offer For His First Aid Vending Machine Idea (Video)
Posted by Steve on May 13 2016
What were you doing when you were 14?  Probably riding BMX bikes and eating bookers like the rest of us, right?  Not this kid from Alabama.

Taylor Rosenthal, a ninth-grader in Alabama, is the CEO of RecMed, a company that is his own brainchild.  And you'll probably hate him because he came up with an idea that is so simple, yet so valuable.  He had the idea to place first aid vending machines at sporting events, carnivals and other public settings.  It's as simple as that!  Skin your knee?  Get a band aid and some gauze!  

Again, this was a very simple idea, but also pretty valuable.  So valuable, in fact, that Rosenthal was offered $30 million to sell the company and walk away!  Perfect, right?  Well, he TURNED IT DOWN!  And now, Rosenthal is holding out for $50 million.  And he'll probably end up getting it!
