For a very long time, there were many things that I did not take as seriously as I do now. I did not take my Twitter account or blogs seriously until I went into what I call the grow your powerful presence on the web niche. It was at that moment when I started to consider taking blogging and social media very seriously, and then it took off.
For a very long time, I did not take my expertise seriously either. I published my first book later than I would have liked. Then, I published a few other books but never decided to promote them. In addition, I never thought of creating my own training course even when the tools to do such as Udemy and Optimize Press were staring right at me. Now I promote those products often (especially on my blog’s sidebar).
I have over 100,000 Twitter followers, over 100,000 all-time blog views, and aspire to make a six figure income very soon. However, after looking past all of the numbers and being able to see the big picture, I have a new aspiration as well. This aspiration is the most aspiration I have ever pursued, and it may very well be the most important aspiration I pursue in my entire life.
I want to change the world.
Sure, there are plenty of ways to change the world. Steve Jobs changed the world with Apple’s high quality products while Mark Zuckerberg changed the world by making communication easier than ever. There are more examples throughout history of people changing the world, and I want to become a part of that history. In particular, I want to become a part of that history by transforming teenagers into entrepreneurs with their own thriving products, services, and businesses.
The biggest reason why most people are unable to unlock their potential is because they get trapped in the status quo. Many people believe that they cannot pursue their dreams until they get out of college. By that time, these individuals want to live on their own and go for the short-term money by joining the status quo, entrepreneurialism’s Darth Vader. Many of today’s entrepreneurs get out of the status quo in their 30’s or 40’s, but most people stay in the status quo because it is their only option.
What is the solution to this problem? Is the solution to go to a good university or just spend more money on lottery tickets? Absolutely not. No matter how good a university is or how many lottery tickets you buy, that means nothing unless you have the right mindset. Some of the people who graduated Harvard, Stanford, and the other prestigious universities ended up becoming billionaires (there were a lot more millionaires though). However, there were some people who graduated from these schools that currently cannot find jobs, are in debt, or have a combination of the two. The people who did get jobs may be good wage, but they are still stuck in the status quo with no control over their schedule.
I want to stop that from happening. I want to live my life the way I want to live it, and there is no reason why someone or organization should stop me from doing that. I should be able to take a four week vacation, work on my own schedule, and change the world.
That is the main reason why my brother and I founded Teenager Entrepreneur, a business that empowers teens with the knowledge they need to be successful at a young age. In less than a week, our students were able to go from the typical teen to teens who create their own products and frequently add new content to their blogs.
I’m sure it is easy to find an inspirational quote like, “It’s never too late to start,” on the web. The next book I was going to start writing would have been Twitter Domination, but I am bumping that book back for that exact reason. The next book I am going to write is It’s Never Too Early To Start, and the message I am going to convey in this book is that any teenager can become successful.
There’s no release date for It’s Never Too Early To Start yet, but when it comes out, it’s going to create a ruckus and redefine what is possible for teenagers around the world.
