She was the catalyst for everything. While she didn’t do the work for me, she certainly instilled in me the idea that I actually had something valuable to share and that I was actually worth something. She gave me permission to move forward (as stupid & silly as that sounds).
I will forever be in debt to her because if it wasn’t for that, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Up until the moment I met her, I was broke. I was making very little money even though I had a pretty substantial audience on instagram.
In order for me to hang out with her for 3-4 days, all I was able to eat was 2 or 3 granolas per day + water, because I didn’t have money for food in the tourist area where we were staying at (and of course, I have pride ok?
I wasn’t going to ask her, WHOM I JUST MET, to feed me because I had no money lol)
After that things picked up extremely fast. September 13th, 2016 was the first major transaction, $3500, on my PayPal (which of course, PayPal held for 21 days.. those idiots -.- lol).
A little over a month later a $10k client, then a $9k one, then $15k, and it just kept going and going and going.
A little over a year later I was invited to an event called “Influencer Party” by a company called Clickfunnels.
Every single time I look at the pictures of that event, I can't believe it.
It literally feels like a dream to be able to be where I am. I truly can't count all the blessings and things God has given me.
From nothing to building several million followers on instagram, and a network of hundreds of millions, a business from literally $0 (with $0 funding or resources) to multiple 6 figures in revenue in 1 year, having worked & working with probably the best entrepreneurs of our generation (even celebrities like Ronaldinho).
Being invited to speak at events, podcasts, conferences, interviews, magazines, It feels unreal.
Entrepreneurs whom I’ve looked up to for so long & idolized, I was able to meet, have dinner with at this event, take pictures, and ALSO RUN OVER THEM as we broke a world record in bubble soccer (that was the best part😜 ) and now have the chance to collaborate & work with on several projects.
For some reading this you might be saying, “oh 6 figures is nothing, 7 is where is at”, for others 6 seems like light years ahead of you.
For the 7 figures all I can say, 5 months from now let's talk again and lets see what happened 😉
For the people who think is light years ahead of them, it really isn’t, trust me...
If me, a guy who came from nothing, from another country, that the only common thread between DR and USA was that I also had wifi & an internet connection (not even as fast), can do it, you can too.
