The 31-year-old is now a millionaire, making his money in the online electronics market, with the website, that shares his last name,

Kogan began his enterprising at a young age, starting his own carwash business at 12, according to the article. He would knock on his neighbors doors and offer them a carwash for a small fee. Soon he was buying his own pressure hose, and recruiting his friends to join his business.
