In 2011, I quit my job forever.
Last known occupation: server at LongHorn Steakhouse.
From there, I went through the entrepreneurial odyssey. I began developing my skills as a freelancer and opened up different service-based businesses. I tried my hand at tutoring, web design, copywriting and a dozen other things. I scaled many of those to $100k+ fairly quickly, which felt really good. But more importantly, taught how to become innovative, persistent and self-reliant.
A mogul in the making.
As I began to have more success freelancing, I attracted attention online with my articles in various outlets like Under30CEO. Then the big media came calling and my work got featured in places like Entrepreneur, Inc., Fortune and TIME Magazine.
My social media following began to grow like crazy. Then, it exploded. This was good for my ego, but even better for my business.
I capitalized on this newfound traction and transitioned into digital marketing. I learned how to create information products and courses that taught people all the skills I’d learned along the way. So meta.
The online courses became my first $1M+ business. But I wasn’t really happy with the business. Something felt empty and I wasn’t having fun anymore. I just didn’t know how to transition yet.
My debut book Rich20Something launched in 2017 to incredible reviews and lots of attention. I am really proud of what my team and I were able to accomplish with that project. It was the culmination of a major life phase.
Currently, all my energy and attention is being poured into Alpha Mentorship, the world’s most immersive training and investment platform for the next generation of entrepreneurs, creators and leaders.
