00:00:00 00:00:04 all right for starters let's take a peek
00:00:02 00:00:11 at this amazing night out here look at
00:00:04 00:00:12 this look at the sky absolutely gorgeous
00:00:11 00:00:15 out this evening it was just out at a
00:00:12 00:00:17 meeting got the opportunity to drive
00:00:15 00:00:19 back in like the prime like five minutes
00:00:17 00:00:21 of sunset so very grateful for that
00:00:19 00:00:23 there's definitely amazing to see let's
00:00:21 00:00:26 set up the camera real quick and I got
00:00:23 00:00:28 something to tok about okay so I want
00:00:26 00:00:29 to tell a story inside of this and it's
00:00:28 00:00:31 kind of a two-parter now as you can tell
00:00:29 00:00:33 the title and hopefully the thumbnail
00:00:31 00:00:35 I'm not making those myself so they're
00:00:33 00:00:38 probably awful but I want to tell a
00:00:35 00:00:40 story about going from $1,000 to zero
00:00:38 00:00:42 and then turning that zero you know
00:00:40 00:00:44 nothing into 10,000 now there's a few
00:00:42 00:00:47 different ways that this happened that I
00:00:44 00:00:49 can think of okay so there was my first
00:00:47 00:00:50 thousand dollars I made not online like
00:00:49 00:00:53 I remember having this much money I
00:00:50 00:00:54 think was like 1400 actually and I went
00:00:53 00:00:56 and spent a lot of it actually at the
00:00:54 00:00:58 time when I purchased this item I had
00:00:56 00:01:00 about 2000 saved up I wouldn't spend
00:00:58 00:01:00 pretty much all of my money on a four
00:01:00 00:01:02 wheeler
00:01:00 00:01:04 okay something like this if you guys
00:01:02 00:01:05 know what an ATV a quad where do I know
00:01:04 00:01:08 people in the world call it different
00:01:05 00:01:10 things whatever I wanted what I couldn't
00:01:08 00:01:12 have as a kid and we grew up with dirt
00:01:10 00:01:13 bikes we were blessed we have a little
00:01:12 00:01:15 cabin up in the woods in a different
00:01:13 00:01:17 state it was like you know like my
00:01:15 00:01:18 grandpa's and whatnot so we always had a
00:01:17 00:01:20 couple of dirt bikes up there you know
00:01:18 00:01:22 my dad grew up on dirt bikes so he was
00:01:20 00:01:24 all things dirt bikes naturally as a kid
00:01:22 00:01:26 you want you don't have so what is it I
00:01:24 00:01:27 wanted for like three years only the
00:01:26 00:01:29 only thing I ever wanted was a
00:01:27 00:01:30 four-wheeler so when I first got some
00:01:29 00:01:33 money this was actually from mowing
00:01:30 00:01:36 lawns I went ahead when on Craigslist
00:01:33 00:01:37 and I purchased a four wheeler okay and
00:01:36 00:01:38 it's kind of funny to think about I
00:01:37 00:01:41 would totally do it again if I had a
00:01:38 00:01:42 house with some land just because I only
00:01:41 00:01:43 got to ride it like five times a year
00:01:42 00:01:44 because we're never really at my cabin
00:01:43 00:01:47 that much and only in the summer months
00:01:44 00:01:48 but it was one of those things I just
00:01:47 00:01:51 remember this I bought it for 1,400
00:01:48 00:01:53 bucks in cash at like 11 or 12 years old
00:01:51 00:01:55 and then I sold it a year later
00:01:53 00:01:57 beat to hell even more than it already
00:01:55 00:01:58 was here's a nice four-wheeler but you
00:01:57 00:01:59 know a couple more dings a couple more
00:01:58 00:02:01 scratches whatever it was running fine
00:01:59 00:02:03 very beautiful for but there's one of
00:02:01 00:02:04 the race ones and I sold it to my
00:02:03 00:02:06 neighbor across the lake whose kids I
00:02:04 00:02:08 used to ride dirt bikes and formulas
00:02:06 00:02:11 with for fourteen hundred and fifty so I
00:02:08 00:02:12 made a $50 profit which for me it felt
00:02:11 00:02:14 like I was making four
00:02:12 00:02:17 250 cause that's the check he gave me I
00:02:14 00:02:18 was kind of crazy so for me I made that
00:02:17 00:02:20 money mowing lawns and then when I went
00:02:18 00:02:23 2-0 I'm gonna tok about how I brought
00:02:20 00:02:24 it back up because this happened two
00:02:23 00:02:26 years in a row so one year I bought a
00:02:24 00:02:28 four-wheeler and then I would sell it
00:02:26 00:02:30 coming into the summers that I have
00:02:28 00:02:32 money to do other things and buy another
00:02:30 00:02:34 four we like I would buy it going into
00:02:32 00:02:35 the end of the year so I was kind of
00:02:34 00:02:36 smart I knew the buying a dirt bike it's
00:02:35 00:02:38 gonna be the lowest of price in the
00:02:36 00:02:40 winter or going into the winter because
00:02:38 00:02:42 it's much harder to sell so that's what
00:02:40 00:02:44 I would purchase it okay and that's also
00:02:42 00:02:46 on my income stuff because I would stop
00:02:44 00:02:47 mowing Lots so it's pretty much left
00:02:46 00:02:48 with no money and the reason this is
00:02:47 00:02:50 like I used to call like a
00:02:48 00:02:52 one-and-a-half parter like the first
00:02:50 00:02:54 amount of money I made offline I used it
00:02:52 00:02:56 to buy you know of a vehicle and then
00:02:54 00:02:58 the first a thousand I made online which
00:02:56 00:03:00 is constantly pumped backed into other
00:02:58 00:03:02 things online which I was scammed left
00:03:00 00:03:04 and right like lost so much money so
00:03:02 00:03:06 what took me from zero to 10,000 because
00:03:04 00:03:09 I remember crossing that milestone in my
00:03:06 00:03:10 bank of having $10,000 so a lot of
00:03:09 00:03:12 people ask me you know was an Instagram
00:03:10 00:03:14 influencer pages right was it stok
00:03:12 00:03:16 trading I've made $10,000 trading stoks
00:03:14 00:03:17 in fact that made thirty four thousand
00:03:16 00:03:19 dollars in one day when I was 14
00:03:17 00:03:20 proceeded to lose all that money so am I
00:03:19 00:03:23 going to count it but you know the first
00:03:20 00:03:25 dollar 10,000 excuse me that I had in my
00:03:23 00:03:28 bank was from Instagram influencer pages
00:03:25 00:03:30 as I was starting to get into affiliate
00:03:28 00:03:32 marketing so it was kind of like that
00:03:30 00:03:33 transition phase I probably made you
00:03:32 00:03:34 know a good amount of money but I was
00:03:33 00:03:36 like constantly getting scammed
00:03:34 00:03:38 constantly reinvesting into other things
00:03:36 00:03:39 and I don't really care as where does
00:03:38 00:03:41 that sounds like I never cared if I
00:03:39 00:03:43 really lost money like I've gotten
00:03:41 00:03:45 scammed for $3,300 once like just
00:03:43 00:03:47 blatantly the stupidest thing ever and I
00:03:45 00:03:49 didn't have an emotional change there
00:03:47 00:03:50 was no imbalance I was like oh well that
00:03:49 00:03:52 sucks I learned you know I figured out I
00:03:50 00:03:53 literally look I'm like well here's
00:03:52 00:03:55 where I went wrong it was just one thing
00:03:53 00:03:57 never doing that again and I just moved
00:03:55 00:03:58 on so it's been really positive with
00:03:57 00:04:00 that that's one thing you know I pat
00:03:58 00:04:03 myself on the back for so that's
00:04:00 00:04:05 definitely huge now the reason I really
00:04:03 00:04:07 said there were two parts in this is
00:04:05 00:04:09 really because they're kind of one and a
00:04:07 00:04:12 half is because on the offline version I
00:04:09 00:04:14 had gone from $1,000 to zero back to a
00:04:12 00:04:16 thousand back to zero back 2009 to zero
00:04:14 00:04:18 very frequently over like a multiply
00:04:16 00:04:20 three or four year period because I was
00:04:18 00:04:22 making really good money from a young
00:04:20 00:04:23 age mowing lawns so I kept dumping that
00:04:22 00:04:25 money back in
00:04:23 00:04:27 figuring out the online stuff and what
00:04:25 00:04:29 was funny is once I got that first
00:04:27 00:04:31 10,000 in my bank account that that for
00:04:29 00:04:32 me was like a big number because you
00:04:31 00:04:33 know that's adding a whole nother digit
00:04:32 00:04:35 like I don't think it's not hard to get
00:04:33 00:04:36 your hands on a thousand dollars or two
00:04:35 00:04:39 thousand dollars but you know when
00:04:36 00:04:41 you're getting into five figures and you
00:04:39 00:04:42 know having that sitting just like it's
00:04:41 00:04:45 it's all yours homie like I was probably
00:04:42 00:04:48 was I 50 I think I was 16 I like just
00:04:45 00:04:50 turned 16 and to have 10 grand sitting
00:04:48 00:04:51 in cash that you made and you know
00:04:50 00:04:53 things started quickly coming in with
00:04:51 00:04:56 consistent cash flow after that it was
00:04:53 00:04:58 super super cool to see so now how did I
00:04:56 00:05:01 actually do it how did I take that you
00:04:58 00:05:02 know zero and go to 10,000 what did that
00:05:01 00:05:05 look like let me explain what it was
00:05:02 00:05:07 exactly so a lot of people somewhat know
00:05:05 00:05:10 this story but they don't know what went
00:05:07 00:05:12 into it so well yes I was growing
00:05:10 00:05:14 Instagram influencer pages that's great
00:05:12 00:05:15 trust me that [ __ ] does not pay well
00:05:14 00:05:18 unless you have a massive account
00:05:15 00:05:20 especially almost four years ago three
00:05:18 00:05:21 and a half years ago when it was just
00:05:20 00:05:24 getting started
00:05:21 00:05:27 brands take so long to actually adopt
00:05:24 00:05:29 new forms of media and marketing so for
00:05:27 00:05:31 them to you know shell out ten thousand
00:05:29 00:05:32 dollars on an advertising deal it's very
00:05:31 00:05:34 difficult to get especially your smaller
00:05:32 00:05:36 page so it was really only really big
00:05:34 00:05:39 personal brands getting those deals
00:05:36 00:05:40 those endorsement deals so does all the
00:05:39 00:05:42 pages where it wasn't a personal page
00:05:40 00:05:43 you know is mean pages and luxury pages
00:05:42 00:05:46 that was a lot of what I own luxury
00:05:43 00:05:48 pages car pages boat pages some quote
00:05:46 00:05:49 pages entrepreneur you get the point you
00:05:48 00:05:50 know there are other all over the place
00:05:49 00:05:52 right now the ones that are still big
00:05:50 00:05:53 trending like I have friends I have a
00:05:52 00:05:56 good buddy of mine in LA there was 65
00:05:53 00:05:57 million followers between his multiple
00:05:56 00:06:00 accounts you know like literally the
00:05:57 00:06:02 biggest pages you can ever imagine you
00:06:00 00:06:03 know with 5 million 10 million 15
00:06:02 00:06:05 million followers you know with the the
00:06:03 00:06:08 funny video pages the fight videos fail
00:06:05 00:06:11 videos memes all of that so at the time
00:06:08 00:06:13 I actually didn't make that much money
00:06:11 00:06:15 off of directly selling shoutouts which
00:06:13 00:06:16 means someone was paying me and I'll
00:06:15 00:06:19 tok about how he grew the pages in a
00:06:16 00:06:20 second but someone was paying me to post
00:06:19 00:06:22 something on my page that's now how I
00:06:20 00:06:25 was really making my money I was making
00:06:22 00:06:27 money by building accounts so I started
00:06:25 00:06:28 developing what was called a network so
00:06:27 00:06:30 you have your network of people you know
00:06:28 00:06:32 but now you have your own network in
00:06:30 00:06:35 of yourself and what I mean by that I
00:06:32 00:06:39 had at one point fifty two different
00:06:35 00:06:40 Instagram accounts 52 so think about
00:06:39 00:06:41 that for a second if I want to start a
00:06:40 00:06:43 brand new one from scratch
00:06:41 00:06:45 all I have to do as long as it's someone
00:06:43 00:06:46 similar is repost a piece of content
00:06:45 00:06:49 from now like three or four times on all
00:06:46 00:06:49 the other ones in my network and then
00:06:49 00:06:51 BOOM
00:06:49 00:06:53 now that page is suddenly like almost at
00:06:51 00:06:55 the same level as all the others because
00:06:53 00:06:57 everyone's seen it so I can blow him up
00:06:55 00:06:59 and you know within like 40 days was
00:06:57 00:07:01 really my my perfect sweet spot time
00:06:59 00:07:03 frame blow up I was about to say a store
00:07:01 00:07:05 Shopify blow up an Instagram page and
00:07:03 00:07:07 then sell it to someone so I knew a lot
00:07:05 00:07:08 of friends who did brokerage deals that
00:07:07 00:07:10 had different apps that were private
00:07:08 00:07:12 that would let you sell pages so I had
00:07:10 00:07:14 the connections through that I could
00:07:12 00:07:15 build a page from zero and remember I
00:07:14 00:07:17 can do multiple pages usually three or
00:07:15 00:07:19 four a month and build them and then
00:07:17 00:07:20 sell them from anywhere from like two to
00:07:19 00:07:23 eight grand
00:07:20 00:07:24 and in like a 40 day period so I build I
00:07:23 00:07:25 did try to keep a lot of them because I
00:07:24 00:07:27 knew later down the road once they got a
00:07:25 00:07:29 lot bigger like millions of followers
00:07:27 00:07:31 I'd be able to make that cash flow so
00:07:29 00:07:33 it's kind of a short-term versus
00:07:31 00:07:34 long-term game and I played both so
00:07:33 00:07:36 that's where I first started making the
00:07:34 00:07:38 money and how I grew the page is real
00:07:36 00:07:39 quick it was very interesting because I
00:07:38 00:07:40 didn't know what I was doing right I
00:07:39 00:07:41 didn't have any money when I was
00:07:40 00:07:43 starting because again I'd gone to zero
00:07:41 00:07:45 so I didn't like buy any courses I don't
00:07:43 00:07:46 even know I think there was one course
00:07:45 00:07:48 out at the time that I remember which I
00:07:46 00:07:51 bought later once I started making money
00:07:48 00:07:52 and that kind of for me to start posting
00:07:51 00:07:54 all this content I was like one of the
00:07:52 00:07:56 very early adopters of Instagram
00:07:54 00:07:58 influencers so whenever I was posting it
00:07:56 00:08:00 would just get so much engagement like
00:07:58 00:08:01 you go on the instant on the Instagram
00:08:00 00:08:03 Explorer feed right now and there's
00:08:01 00:08:05 gonna be all sorts of different videos a
00:08:03 00:08:07 couple of pictures that space to get on
00:08:05 00:08:10 there has so much competition right now
00:08:07 00:08:12 it's so difficult now back three and a
00:08:10 00:08:14 half years ago it was easy as pie
00:08:12 00:08:16 you use a couple of the right hashtags
00:08:14 00:08:17 there was even one point which my oh
00:08:16 00:08:19 geez remember this if you guys have
00:08:17 00:08:22 drawn pages where there was a hashtag or
00:08:19 00:08:23 not a hashtag in at list okay so you go
00:08:22 00:08:24 through you write the description of
00:08:23 00:08:26 your post right you got your picture you
00:08:24 00:08:27 read the little description you drop
00:08:26 00:08:29 down a few lines so that people have to
00:08:27 00:08:31 click more to see it because most people
00:08:29 00:08:32 don't do that and then you put like a
00:08:31 00:08:35 copy pasted list there was this list
00:08:32 00:08:37 floating around it worked so well for
00:08:35 00:08:39 like three or four months where you copy
00:08:37 00:08:41 pasted this list it had like 50 famous
00:08:39 00:08:42 people I remember like Kevin Hart Kim
00:08:41 00:08:45 Kardashian
00:08:42 00:08:47 Drake like all these people Oprah and
00:08:45 00:08:49 just for whatever reason like tripled
00:08:47 00:08:50 the engagement like I would go for about
00:08:49 00:08:52 one of my pages getting like three to
00:08:50 00:08:54 five thousand likes to boom ten thousand
00:08:52 00:08:56 likes it's like four thousand comments
00:08:54 00:08:58 just crazy ban just on to the explore
00:08:56 00:09:00 page it was little things like that so
00:08:58 00:09:01 don't ask me for advice on growing pages
00:09:00 00:09:02 right now because that's not what I do
00:09:01 00:09:03 I'm not in that space it's very
00:09:02 00:09:05 different I do still have the
00:09:03 00:09:06 connections I do still know some stuff
00:09:05 00:09:07 but that's just not what I'm focused on
00:09:06 00:09:10 okay
00:09:07 00:09:11 the game with that has evolved so you
00:09:10 00:09:13 know I've kind of stepped the way out on
00:09:11 00:09:14 have any interest in that so that's what
00:09:13 00:09:15 first started making me the money
00:09:14 00:09:18 selling a little bit of shout out space
00:09:15 00:09:19 on there but it was primarily flipping
00:09:18 00:09:22 the accounts or I was able to grow it
00:09:19 00:09:23 because I put in the work myself to go
00:09:22 00:09:25 ahead and start building everything and
00:09:23 00:09:26 it's kind of weird like with my shirt
00:09:25 00:09:29 showing through I don't know if that's
00:09:26 00:09:31 whatever but so every day I get to see
00:09:29 00:09:33 it in the camera so that's what I was
00:09:31 00:09:35 doing that may be my first ten grand sit
00:09:33 00:09:36 into my bank like that's a really cool
00:09:35 00:09:38 feeling if you guys haven't hit that
00:09:36 00:09:40 just wait until you do trust me it's
00:09:38 00:09:41 gonna be super awesome so from there I
00:09:40 00:09:44 started transitioning into affiliate
00:09:41 00:09:45 marketing okay and that's where I really
00:09:44 00:09:47 started making like okay I'm making
00:09:45 00:09:48 multiple thousands a month building on
00:09:47 00:09:50 that and this is online so I'm making it
00:09:48 00:09:53 multiple thousands per month online
00:09:50 00:09:55 consistently like residual income where
00:09:53 00:09:58 it's literally like if I was in a coma I
00:09:55 00:10:00 would still make it that started blowing
00:09:58 00:10:02 my mind so that for me was how I went
00:10:00 00:10:03 from a thousand to zero and then to ten
00:10:02 00:10:05 thousand because when you're starting
00:10:03 00:10:06 from nothing you know for me you know I
00:10:05 00:10:08 don't have any expenses that I have to
00:10:06 00:10:10 worry about like facing eviction or rent
00:10:08 00:10:12 or whatever you know or a car payment at
00:10:10 00:10:14 the time when I first starting that
00:10:12 00:10:15 money I was about to get a Maserati so
00:10:14 00:10:16 there's a lot of stuff you know when you
00:10:15 00:10:18 first start touching some money but
00:10:16 00:10:21 that's how you can really grow those my
00:10:18 00:10:23 specific situation on going from zero to
00:10:21 00:10:25 that 10,000 mark which is huge you know
00:10:23 00:10:26 so hope that helps you guys I hope it
00:10:25 00:10:28 gave you like maybe some ideas again the
00:10:26 00:10:29 space is evolved but that's just what I
00:10:28 00:10:31 did that's kind of how I handled it
00:10:29 00:10:33 right so everybody's gave me different
00:10:31 00:10:34 everything you're doing you might not
00:10:33 00:10:35 even be doing something online you might
00:10:34 00:10:37 do offline you might be doing a sales
00:10:35 00:10:39 job door-to-door sales I've done that
00:10:37 00:10:41 stuff you know it just is what it is so

00:10:41 00:10:44 whatever business right whatever you're
00:10:42 00:10:46 doing to make that money go ahead run
