  4. Here’s a story that I hope brings you guys value:

    Right now there are multiples entities (VC, investors, other companies) that want to buy a piece of my company.

    For those of you guys who don’t know me I’m a 26 year old immigrant entrepreneur who built over $400K in passive income by working 18 hours a day and sleeping in my car at times blah blah blah I’m now taking my company to $250M.

    So one thing that I had to go through over the past couple weeks was providing spreadsheets and waterfall charts for potential investors to show them different aspects of my business.

    Do you guys wanna know what I found?

    I found out that as of right now I don’t want anyone to invest into my business because they don’t have the same heart for my company that I do and I don’t want anyone telling me what to do.

    The people that wanted us to my company and take a piece of it never worked 120 hours in a week.

    They never slept in their car for months and shower at the gym and ironed their clothes at hotel because you made friends with the manager.

    I want to scale and grow across my region but I’m not willing to take money from somebody who is only looking at my company as a profitable dollar generating engine, rather than a company that is changing the culture in the financial technology space.

    So I had this crazy idea,

    What if, instead of taking money from one investor or another, I just went out and continue to do what I’ve done my whole life which is make SALES, and then we just reinvest all of that money back into the company.

    I’m not telling anybody what to do, but that’s what’s worked for me and that’s what I’m going to continue to do.

    It was a fun exercise going through the motions with the investors etc., but what it all boils down to is that SALES SOLVES MY PROBLEM.

    GO make sales guys.

    Love you all.

  5. Started a few weeks back, growing… slowly, but for me it's more about who and not how many. My intro video was my 1st attempt and a little embarrassing I think, good luck to everyone starting out, being true to you and having patience is key.

  6. Gary your the fucking man (excuse my French). Started a channel about the whole Garage sale eBay gig. So far going great! Love it man
