Freddie Figgers, now 29, had a troubled history but has turned his life around and is now prosperous. Two days after giving birth to Figgers, his mother deserted him and left him to fend for himself.
Fortunately, a kind and encouraging couple named Nathan and Betty Figgers decided to adopt him.
It became clear that Figgers was not your typical little youngster. His first experience with a computer came when he was nine years old and after a few unsuccessful attempts, he succeeded in getting it to function properly.
Figgers shown intelligence far above his years as a kid, and at the age of 12 he got his first job working with computers. Already at the age of 15, he was the owner of his own cloud computing business.
When a tornado struck Alabama, a car business, and all of their computer data were destroyed, that’s when he got the idea.
The company Figgers developed a technique to back up their information on a distant server in order to avoid a repeat of the same scenario in the future. Back then, he completed all of his work in the privacy of his own garden since he could not afford a beautiful office.
Another incredible creation that Figgers made was a one-of-a-kind pair of shoes for his father, who was suffering from the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s disease at the time.
He came up with the idea of equipping a pair of shoes with a GPS tracker and a two-way communicator in order to guarantee his father’s well-being at all times.
Figgers made the decision to leave school and launch his own telecom company, which he named Figgers Communication. He was just 24 years old when he completed the design and construction of 80 unique software products.
Figgers, who is now 29, has already achieved a great deal of success as an entrepreneur and innovator. His Telecom Company is worth more than $62 million to the market.
There is no question that Figgers is a brilliant mind and an impressive innovator. Not only is he smart and dedicated, but he was also blessed from birth with an enormous amount of compassion.
He gives back to the community by assisting families who are facing foreclosure on their houses, supporting youth activities, paying the utility bills of elderly, and providing college scholarships.
Figgers said, “I believe turning caring into action, and if you identify a problem find a way to create an effect to affect the life of someone else.
I’m going to have an influence on this world and change today for a better future because money is nothing but a tool, but with that tool, we can alter the lives of regular people and make a difference in the world by providing them with opportunity,”
