A few months ago, Kristin Thomas received a text message from her client, Sophie Shepherd.
“Kristin — I can’t even believe this. I’ve just closed another sale at full price. I just reached my biggest revenue month yet!”
That’s a big deal for any emerging entrepreneur. The fact that it occurred in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic is nothing short of phenomenal.
“It was a lot of money to be making per month,” says Kristin. …
To be successful in business, most of us would agree you need at least one of two things: money, or education.
Some people grind through years of college education to earn an MBA, while others invest thousands of dollars in venture capital.
Ingrid Arna did neither.
Arna not only started her own business out of nothing but scaled rapidly with zero capital investment.
Within 18 months, she’d made her first million online.
Three years later, she’d built a multimillion-dollar international company.
While other businesses crumbled during the global pandemic, Arna thrived. …
Starting an online business is no easy feat, but the vast majority of entrepreneurs will agree that it’s worth the effort. But why go through months of grinding if you can get the same results in a matter of weeks?
That’s the value proposition that Junior “JR” Anthony has built his businesses around. He’s achieved outstanding results for all his students, gaining him recognition in the business coaching space.
In a world of big names from big brands going on to start other big brands and countless startup success stories, it’s nice to see someone just succeeding at what they love without necessarily disrupting an entire market in the process. …
You won’t find Rasmus and Christian Mikkelsen at any university or in any classroom. They don’t hold teaching degrees (or any other degree for that matter) and don’t give lectures or assign homework.
Yet, these twins are two of the most successful teachers today. They’ve taught thousands of happy students through their online course.
The Mikkelsen Twins aren’t just teachers — they’re entrepreneurs. The duo dropped out of college to start a business. After many ventures of varying success, they finally found a winning business model: self-publishing and selling books on Amazon.
The Twins started a very profitable book publishing business, which makes several thousands of dollars each month. They hire ghostwriters to write non-fiction books on topics that are highly in-demand but have little supply. …
Decentralized finance, often abbreviated to DeFi, is an emerging sector of the cryptocurrency industry. While government commodities like gold were once backed by fiat currency, cryptocurrency has never been backed by anything. Decentralized finance is separate from any government institution, bank, or agency. These technologies are built from the ground-up and rely on blockchain ledgers and smart contracts.
But is decentralized finance just a fad or will, it grow to become something much more significant? Plenty of recent events, such as the bZx hack and CryptoCore’s phishing scams, have raised skepticism about the industry. Is something as new and radical as decentralized finance worth the hype? Will it slowly fade out of existence like Livestrong bands, pogs, mullets, and Pokémon Go? …

At the time of this writing, one share of Amazon sits above $3,000 for the first time in its history.
Many retailers are scrambling to get online and join the e-commerce buying frenzy. …
As far back as he could remember, Robert McGuinness always wanted to be an entrepreneur. He watched the uncles on his mom’s side come to this country with absolutely nothing and build incredibly successful businesses.
But his dreams didn’t always turn out as planned. McGuinness started two businesses, and both failed. He was broke, living with his family, and shouldering a lot of debt. McGuinness had to pick himself back up, so he took a technology sales role in New York City. This job was the last thing he imagined himself doing, especially since the commute was three hours roundtrip.
“Every day, I showed up to work something deep inside of me was off,” McGuinness said. “My throat would close, my chest would tighten, and deep down, I knew there was more and I knew I didn’t belong here. …
