Growing up in a small farm town in Illinois, I wasn’t supposed to be much.
With only one working parent at home, money was scarce.
It was either go to college or work in a factory until you die.
From the time I was born, I was told to:
I hated it. It didn't make any sense to me.
I had severe ADHD, and when I figured out 75% of high school is memorization — I couldn’t do it.
One day in school, I asked my teacher,
The teacher looked surprised and said,
Once I graduated high school, I was fired from 7 jobs in a row.
(Including McDonald’s — for dropping my hat in the fryer).
Every manager who fired me went out of their way to tell me more or less that I couldn’t amount to much in life.
I started my “Internet Marketing” career in 2012 by driving clicks to click-bait articles online.
I discovered a platform that paid for traffic.
By sheer luck and coincidence, I noticed the same type of viral click-bait articles being shared by influencers on social media.
I became friends with one and eventually asked him,
“Why do you share those stupid articles?”
He told me about a website that paid up to 17 cents per click. And, that he was making over $100,000+ per month sharing the articles to his followers.
My mind was instantly expanded.
Here I was busting my ass selling insurance over the phone, getting called every name in the book while he was posting a couple of links a day to make 7 figures.
I was working hard. He was working smart.
That was the day my obsession with marketing was born.
I grew my social media following to 800,000+ followers by making viral videos. Within a year I made my first 6-figures driving traffic to the same type of articles.
After about 2 years, the website that paid for traffic closed down.
I also realized I hated making viral videos. I didn’t want to be another influencer making cringe videos just to profit off of social media.
I decided to delete my pages with all the followers and build my first off-line business.After tapping out on my organic marketing leads…
I spent hundreds of thousands with fancy marketing agencies who promised me the moon but never actually delivered high-quality leads.
And when they didn’t provide the results I needed, I’d move onto SEO agencies, website specialists — anyone and everyone who promised they could deliver real leads.
But nothing worked.
Thanks to the ‘wannabe marketers with fancy websites’ I hired, I was in the hole with nothing to show for it.
That’s when I said enough is enough.
I followed my gut, and I put in the work to generate my own leads.
I paid careful attention to the proven tactics that worked.
In the process, I not only grew my first business to 7 figures but became a go-to marketing and sales consultant for thousands of entrepreneurs, small businesses, and even large Fortune 500 corporations.
After building one of the most successful legal marketing agencies, I decided I wanted to get into investing and build the holy grail of income - passive income.
Income I can earn while I sleep.
My first attempt went south. I ended up losing over $100,000 trading stocks, but it made me turn my attention to trading cryptocurrency.
The first few months started off the same as stocks (making a little money and then losing even more money).
But then it clicked for me, and I discovered a cryptocurrency strategy that helped me completely replace my active business income with passive investment income.
My success in marketing and crypto showed me that my school teacher was wrong.
There was nothing realistic about a 25 year old becoming a millionaire through marketing, or a 28 year old replacing his income from passive investment strategies.
I’ve learned that being realistic is a sell out of your potential. Realistic means, “lower your life standards and ambitions.”
Do you want to attract more cases and supercharge your marketing?
(yes — of course you do)
I also focus on cryptocurrency education…
