Mr Lepre had always dreamed of having a job with enough flexibility to travel the world and enough money to do what he loved, news.com.au reported.
He moved back home and began working manual labour jobs to help his single mother financially, all while researching how to start his own business.
The 26-year-old worked in a cordial factory stacking boxes, in another factory as a dock hand and spent his weekends gardening on a farm.
In his minimal time off, he planned ways to start an online business and came into contact with a business coach who taught him the basics.

Doing his research, the 26-year-old sourced credible overseas brands and launched e-books for students studying medicine and dentistry.
Just six months after dropping out of uni, Mr Lepre invested $2000 into the business, Digital Warriors, and now makes more than $120,000 each month.
His e-commerce sites sell beauty products for men and women, along with educational books, as he believed students were struggling to find sources.

‘With the e-books, the first sale I made (for $30) I was at Casula Mall (in Sydney’s southwest) having lunch — it was in that moment I realised the power of it — forming a business that I didn’t have to trade any time for because it is essentially a PDF file that gets sent out,’ he said.
Although he’s become successful, the 26-year-old has still faced some struggles and has even considered giving up.
‘It has only been the last six months where I have started to see exceptional growth in my business and I began to invest a lot of what I was making into different courses to educate myself on how to further improve the business and update resources,’ Mr Lepre said.
The business has even given him the opportunity to travel overseas monthly for at least two weeks.
