I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I've been an entrepreneur my whole life.
In 2006 I was working at a construction site trying to pay for college when I was run over by a large skidster. It snapped my left leg in half and pretty much crushed my dreams of walking again. Over the next 12 months I was confined to only my bed being sponge-bathed. I had 3 surgeries and was told that I would never walk again.
In 2007 I began an experimental treatment to have stem-cells injected into my leg to regrow the bone. Over the next 6 months I learned how to walk again by walking in the deep end of the pool and moving my way to the shallow end. This is something I feared that I would never do again, but I was determined to try everything possible to beat my odds.
During this time I began to learn online marketing. I had no choice but to sit in my bed all day, even worse I had no way to make money but behind my computer. I would spend 16-20 hours online a day. I learned what it takes to sell products online. Since then I have purchased, started, grown and sold several companies online with my latest company quadrupling a seven figure revenue stream in 6 months.
While my leg still bothers me some days, I view that trial as the literal stepping stone into my current career and it taught me to never give up. The lessons I learned from that day forward have helped make me who I am today.
I have spoken all over the world and coached countless entrepreneurs how to grow their small ideas to billion dollar businesses. Many of these same entrepreneurs have gone on to sell their companies to Google, eBay, Microsoft and Adobe.
Entrepreneur Magazine recently recognized me as one of the top 50 most influential marketers in the World. I was number 2 on the list.
I have a passion for marketing businesses. If you want to be successful online you have to be passionate about what you're doing. Next you have to be willing to work countless hours and truly hustle. With a little luck, I'll help you build the next billion-dollar business.
