“It’s the spirit of the Third World entrepreneur,” he says. “You have to create your own job. You can’t wait to rely on Exxon or Wal-Mart to hire you. And that’s the spirit I try to teach to young entrepreneurs.”

Following his stint as the rock-salesman, Gray moved on to homemade body lotions and eventually his bigger enterprises, which included prepaid phone cards. Along the way, he became a media figure, with his own radio show, “Youth AM/FM,” on which he opined about issues related to youth entrepreneurship. He also wrote a series of books, starting with “Reallionaire,” published in 2005. He also launched the Farrah Gray Foundation, which promotes youth entrepreneurship among inner-city youth.
