I used to ride a pedicab (those giant 3 wheel bikes) in my hometown and give rides for $20 a pop. Dang, that was a leg workout.
I’ve sold affiliate products online, brokered major deals, sold high ticket copywriting services, built a multi 6 figure agency, built a few online courses, hosted events, and more.
All these crazy activities led me to learning how to market, sell, and build community online…
That’s where groups come in.
In 2015 before hardly anyone was using groups for business - I got an invite to a community just for entrepreneurs, and saw how the owner grew it and grew his brand around it too.
I saw a few people getting lots of success - and felt the FOMO!
So naturally I wanted to give it a shot and I started a group!
4 groups in fact… but those ALL failed for one reason or another.
One had no growth.
One had no engagement.
One had no clear target market.
One I just spammed and wondered why it wasn’t working LOL
Then… the 5th group I started in 2016 was the one that grew to now over 80,000 members - The Millennial Entrepreneur Community.
The first few months were rough - but as soon as I hit 1,000 members I knew I was onto something BIG.
I imagined having 1,000 people at a live event I was hosting.
Seeing all these people’s faces and knowing that I could serve them.
Knowing that I could step up and be a respected, well paid leader.
That’s when I started taking the group more seriously - and within a month, I doubled it to 2,000 members. Another month to 5,000.
After that - it kept growing, kept engaging, and hit 25,000, 50,000, and now over 80,000 members worldwide.
As we grew I was able to do a few things I never thought would be possible…
