Entrepreneur Profile: Glen Nothnagel, Founder Of SellBackYourBook.Com


Glen Nothnagel started sellbackyourBook.com at the age of 20 while attending his sophomore year in college. After noticing the amount of textbooks that were not being bought back by his college bookstore at the end of the semester, Glen knew there had to be a more efficient system for kids to get back some of the money they spent on these expensive books.

He started working on his business model and put school on hold. Four years, 200,000+ customers, and over 1 million books later, SellBackYourBook.com is still going strong.
