- After doing some online reading it’s fair to say you have lived a very interesting life as a young man. What got you started?
When starting out, I wanted to put myself and my family into a better financial situation. I wanted to make sure I never depend on a boss and live my life as freely as possible. I wanted to show my family and friends the world and take them on luxurious trips. I wanted to give ridiculous amounts of gifts to my loved ones. I wanted to be financially free- when I never have to look at the prices on the menu- and live life on my terms. I think life is only worth living if you are passionate about something. You can’t live life being complacent and constantly waiting for the weekend. My happiness comes from my passions- from goals that make my life fulfilling. I’m a visionary- I love setting impossible goals, and working to achieve them.
2. Do you have any mentors or anyone that has helped you get to where you are today?
When I committed to self education, I learned from everyone I could- a list of my mentors could go on for 10 pages! Some of my favorite courses I watched were Alex Becker’s, Russel Brunson’s, and Dan Kennedy’s. They’re all incredible marketers and have amazing books that I’ve read as well!
3. What has been your most challenging goal?
I don’t have a single obstacle I can point to which challenged me the most. Anyone that runs a business knows that there’s dozens of challenges throughout the day, hundreds throughout the week, and thousands during the month. Sometimes technical challenges, sometimes one’s personal mindset, and other times strategic challenges. However, despite these struggles, I kept on pushing and pushing myself to get past them. I let my setbacks motivate me. To sum up: nothing will ever go as you plan it, but you need to give your projects your best effort anyway. It’s all about how you react to an issue, and your ability to optimize.
4. When you aren’t working what are some hobbies you do in your spare time?
The typical day is spent working on my businesses, learning more about marketing, or any other topic that applies to my passions! I try to waste as little time as possible, and take advantage of the day. After work, I like to deviate time to spend with my family and my friends, working out, as well as something I call “fun learning.” I love reading classics and fiction. First of all, they are very fun reads. In addition, these novels are extremely beneficial for one’s creativity and intelligence. I love travelling- it’s a passion. Partying in the capitals of Europe, exploring the natural beauty of South Africa & Brazil, and hosting events all across the world are some of my
5. In 2018 you (grossed?) over 1 million dollars in sales, how much hard work went into that and is this just the beginning?
2018 was just the beginning. In 2018, I hit my first $200,000+ revenue month. Since then, I’ve scaled my businesses to the point where my ads have been seen over 500,000,000 times on screen and we spend almost half a million on ads per month- and regularly see $1 million revenue MONTHS. It’s mind blowing to me how scalable online business is. In just 2 years, I scaled from $1 million years, to $1 million months. Obviously, I worked incredibly hard to achieve these substantial results, and I’ll continue to double down on our most successful systems, and eventually scale them to $1 millon weeks! And $1 million days!
6. What advice would you give someone with similar ambitions as you?
To sum it up, do what you know needs to be done and never get lazy about it! I knew what I needed to do, and I did it. It’s as simple as that. My “ambitions” are 10 figure numbers, so if you want to create something as challenging as a billion dollar business, you need to work tirelessly- with no excuses. Even if you want to just replace your current income, put everything you have into it and you will succeed.
But if you quit – it’s impossible.
7. How did you find your transition to public speaking?
I love motivating people. I think of it as “waking them up”. Most people are stuck in “autopilot” while having their entire lives planned out for them by century old traditions. The expectation is to go to college, get a degree, to get a job. This type of life can be boring, people become complacent. We need to understand that there’s another option to make a living, and a much better income than working for a boss. As I became more and more successful- and did incredible #s in the Ecommerce space, entrepreneurs started to reach out to me and asked me to speak on their stages- which I readily agreed to! I had an opportunity to travel the world and meet new people, while motivating others to take their lives into their own control.
8. Anything planned for 2020?
2020 has so far been the best year for me in terms of revenue. I plan on continuing to grow my businesses & create new projects. I have many important products my team is creating for my students and private clients- and we’re planning on generating over $10 million in combined student revenue!
