Proud Of East Texas: Austin Hoffman

Austin Hoffman's been a regular on the garage sale circuit since he was 14 years old. When he couldn't find a job to supoplement his allowance, Austin started his own company of buying at garage sales and selling on the internet.

Four years and more than 8,500 online transactions later, Austin has earned enough money to buy a car and pay for his college education. A graduate this year of Tyler's All Saints Episcopal School, Austin will attend TCU next year where he won the "Texas Christian University Youth Enrepreneur Of The Year Award" two years in a row.

Austin's success hasn't gone unoticed. He's had so many requests for help in buying at garage sales and selling on the internet that he's written a book "Guerilla Garage Sales-Boot Camp For The Beginner".
