Reading this, you might think I had advantages beyond the average kid growing up. How else could anyone make 6 figures by 23, and a million+ by 28 working only 25 hours a week, unless they were born into a life of luxury?
In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. My very first job was doing manual labor for minimum wage with my dad’s construction company. I lasted for about half an hour. (Lol)
That was how long it took to realize that I was never going to make the kind of living I wanted in construction. Instead, I decided to start my first business selling on eBay. I was 14. I’ve been creating and expanding my own businesses ever since.
I won’t lie – it wasn’t easy when I first started out. I was working long hours with my nose to the grindstone. Sometimes the money I made was inconsistent, leaving me stressed out and broke. And when I was making the money I dreamed of, I never had the free time to actually enjoy it.
But even so, by carefully studying other successful entrepreneurs, I was able to make my first $100,000 by the time I was 23, and $1 million + combined in the next 3 ½ years.
Why am I telling you this? Because I want you to see that we’re not as different as you might think. I don’t come from any special background – I come from a working class family of modest means. I had no special training. No trust fund. No safety net if I failed.
When I first started out, I didn’t understand how some people were able to achieve so much. I used to think that really successful people were somehow different from everyone else. That there was something about their lives that gave them an advantage. Maybe they were smarter than me. Or faster. Or just luckier.
But in my 11 years in the trenches I’ve realized that’s not true. At all.
I’m telling you this because I want you to understand one thing: if I could make the leap to eight figures, you can too. Anyone can. All it takes is a system that lets you break through the blocks that keep you from peak productivity and REAL SUCCESS.
