How Victor Magan “Built His Dream Job While Working His Day Job” And Continues To Thrive With Integrity

When Victor Magan was seven years old, he lived in an old, six-floor apartment building in Washington Heights in New York. The building superintendent managed the three surrounding buildings as well. Even though Victor’s building was in okay shape, residents and visitors would always discard their gum in the hallways. Being the restless, young, entrepreneurial spirit that he was, Victor approached the superintendent one day and offered to scrape all the gum off the four buildings’ floors for just a few dollars. He then continued to do this on a monthly basis. “It was hard work, but I loved it because I was making my own money,” Magan says. “I liked the flexibility and the freedom. I was only seven and I was my own boss.”
