First of all I'm gonna shed some light on my story so far.
I grew up in a lower-middle class environment in Northern Europe. Raised my a single Mom I felt pretty strongly the financial pressure she was under, raising me alone. At first she received some support from my Grandmother who received my late Grandfather's pension. But when the relationship between my Mom and Grandmom became somewhat strained, she was all on her own.
At that point I started to ponder thoughts around success, business, money and frankly living an extraordinary life. I saw that some of my classmates were living way better lives than me and some of their parents were really successful business people. To experiece such a big difference in the standard of living you can't help but think, what are these people doing differently?
The first distincion that I came across was that the overwhelming majority of really successful parents of my friends were Business Owners. Then I realized that in order to become as successful as them and live a life of fulfillment and happiness you need to be engaged in somekind of a business.
Starting from there I started to be very curious about learning different business opportunities. To my Mom's credit, altough our situation was tough, one day, when I was in my teens (the early 2000s) she bought me the book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Sharon L. Lechter. I read it and this book really planted the first seeds of business thoughts in my mind. From there I have read dozens of books about business, self-improvement and money, attended seminars and listened to audios. So fast-forward to today and the year 2018 I'm engaged in building an online business with the best support-system and mentors in the world Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek.
In conclusion, I really believe that if you come from a place where you don't have anything but a big dream, then the key to success is learning. Learning from the best in the world in your profession. All skills can be learned and nobody was born with supreme business skills. If you have the will, you can do it just like I have done it.
Talk to you soon,
