Shortcut to Success Stories: Be inspired How These Online Businesses Started
Being an entrepreneur is great fun, but turning yourself into a successful one is hard work. But rather than let the hurdles you must cross frighten you away from trying, you should assess the obstacles and challenges that might stand in the way of you becoming your own boss and come up with an effective way to beat those hurdles. For example, if you are looking to start an online business, you need to first find a solution to financing, solution to hosting, and solution to logistics.
But if that seems too hard for you as a first step, how about using the success stories of the following online business successes to drive yourself towards your own success story.
1. Gary Vaynerchuk
Gary Vaynerchuk is popularly known as the guy who builds businesses and he has so far attained resounding success. After college, he started off on the path of success by turning his family’s wine enterprise from a $3 million business to a $60 million one in under five years. After that, he began investing in companies like Uber, Twitter, Facebook, Birchbox, and Tumblr. At the same time, he turned into an online business mogul by starting VaynerMedia, a leading digital marketing agency.
2. Jeff Walker
Mr Walker started from humble beginnings and launched his first online business while being a stay-at-home dad. Jeff Walker has done everything from tiny product launches that made thousands, to mega launches that generated millions of dollars in sales. He developed a system that launches new digital businesses and products which anyone can access and leverage. In 2016, he generated $600,000 in sales within the first week of launching his Product Launch Formula. Forbes refers to him as the $400 Million Dollar Man.
3. Neil Patel
By the age of 16, this guru owned his own website. Sadly, a marketing firm Patel hired to publicise his website took his hard earned money but delivered no results. That’s what drove him to learn digital marketing. The first client he ever had was a power supply manufacturer who he assisted in generating $25,000,000. Now he is recognised as an investor and analytical expert, and he speaks four languages. The man has repeatedly shown his capability to start a company and turn it into a success story. He’s most popular for helping real businesses through digital marketing to generate revenue.
His goal is helping small businesses go toe to toe against bigger brands without having to spend much money. His business blog, QuickSprout, receives over a million unique visitors every month, and he has worked with top brands including General Motors, Amazon, HP, eBay, and others to generate revenue through content marketing.
4. Marie Forleo
Forleo is the founder of B-School. And from her humble beginnings in New Jersey, she has grown into an online entrepreneur with a multi-million dollar empire. Her company was noted to have generated $11.9 million dollars in 2013 and she’s only gone up from there. She’s also an author, a motivational speaker, and web television host.
