While I might not be able to fly or shoot lasers out of my eyes (much to the disappointment of my son), I’m like Clark Kent — a hardworking American willing to go to great lengths to succeed.
I was born & raised by a single mom who didn’t have much. She always took care of my sister and me during the little time she had outside of work. Because we were constantly trying to make ends meet, I started working at a very young age. I started working as a paperboy when I was 12, and although it didn’t pay a lot, it was better than having nothing.
Several years and a few crappy jobs later, I found a vague job ad in my local newspaper looking for an ambitious individual who wasn’t afraid to make phone calls. I thought to myself, Why the hell not, it can’t be worse than the other jobs I’ve done,” so I applied and got the job.
I loathed being there for the first few months. I barely made any sales, my commission was nonexistent, and I wasn’t bringing home any money. After almost bringing my family to a financial collapse, I had a profound realization: I had to stop being a boy and start being a man.
I completely changed my mindset. If my job started at 8 AM, I’d be at my desk at 7 AM sharp preparing for the day. Every second I wasn’t at work, I was reading up on the latest sales trends or bothering my senior colleagues for advice. I put my heart & soul into every single call I had and eventually learned to overcome most obstacles. A couple of months later, I was making deals & money, looking at a promotion to management.
Long story short, by the time I was in my late-20s, I’d started and built a few million-dollar companies and achieved my wildest dreams of becoming a serial entrepreneur. Nowadays, I own & operate 7 different businesses in different industries and have a loving family to support me along the way. Oh, and my mom…doesn’t need to worry about money for the rest of her life.
My point is — like many of you, I grew up struggling financially and had to grind for years before I started seeing the big bucks.
Gathering The Kings isn’t about scaling your business to a million-dollar value, nor is it about being able to spend your summer vacation in a 5-star resort in the Maldives. I’ve created something much more meaningful, and I want you to join your fellow Kings and me. Because only kings know how heavy the crown really is.
