JLaw is just “a good old-fashioned Hagerstown boy” who grew up racing at the Hagerstown Speedway. His first introduction to entrepreneurship was when he was about twelve years old and racing quarter-midgets with his Dad.
“Me and my Dad had a little race team going on. It was quite expensive to do that back in the early 90’s. My Dad would build the engines. I would go out and win a couple races, throw a For Sale sign on the side of the car and ship the engine off to another kid.”
That was just the beginning. “Moving on from there, I started to make skateboards in wood shop class and sell them to kids. I quickly learned I was a horrible skateboarder so I started making rap music in high school. I was one of the first kids burning CDs back in 2000-2001 and selling rap CDs in the hallways of my high school.
