It was April 23rd, 2009 – My 24th birthday. A few hours earlier, I had left my high paying job as an investment banker to become an entrepreneur.
I had no job, and no real direction for my life. I needed a goal.
That night, I sat down and made a resolve: I was going to be a millionaire by the time I was 30. And I was going to do it on MY terms.
I had exactly six years to accomplish my goal. And the only way to get there was to build a scalable, profitable business.
I started researching all kinds of business opportunities – everything from dive bars to call centers. I spoke to all kinds of people who were making money in interesting ways. The more I read, the more I realized that There’s Money Everywhere.
Since then, I’ve tried a number of business ventures – everything from starting a successful internet marketing company to (unsuccessfully) pitching the Chilean government on funding a mining equipment trading platform.
I've also consulted for famous investment firms and Fortune 500 companies. Yes, you've heard of them. No, I can't tell you who they are.
I am making progress, but I need to do more.
So, on September 8th, 2010, I started this blog as a way to keep myself focused, while sharing my journey with others in an effort to improve my own learning.
As I see it, there are three simple keys to improving your earning power:
1) Finding Great Business Opportunities: People are making money in all kinds of crazy ways these days. I'll be talking about what these opportunities are, and how you can find them in your own life.
2) Build Your Personal Brand: It's important to be good at stuff, but it's even more important to make sure others know how good you are.
3) Selling Awesome Products: This is where the real money is. If you can build a killer product line, you're set for life.
I truly believe that with a little luck and the right amount of effort, you’ll find there really is money everywhere. Hopefully this blog will help you on your journey.
