Hi, I’m Gerard. Also known as The Millennial Mentor™. As a thought leader, serial entrepreneur, angel investor, and philanthropist, my purpose is simple: to inspire other Millennials to leverage their passions to create the successful lifestyles they dream of. I know many Millennials have the desire to break out of what they’ve been told to do in favor of boldly choosing what they know they’re meant to do. I know this story well, because I’ve lived it.
I became a self-made multi-millionaire at 24, but not without overcoming obstacles, fear, and self-doubt. I left college early, after a semester to be exact, to pave my own path. I was told I might not make it, and that I was on my own. Still, I had this drive to keep learning and keep pushing forward no matter the odds. I knew the path that I was choosing was risky, untraditional, but I’ve always been one to aim for living a life outside of the ordinary.
My background wasn’t one that seemed slated for outrageous success. I started from the bottom, and made it my mission to get to the top, doing what I was passionate about, and giving a voice to my generation. At first, I failed! Big time. But I kept going, co-founding a well-loved news platform called EliteDaily.com. I hustled, kept my mind focused, and hustled some more until my publication EliteDaily.com had a readership of over 80 million visitors per month. In 2015, we sold the platform to a multi-billion global corporation for $50,000,000, and my hard work had paid off.
I’m thirty-one now, and in recent years I’ve invested in, built, and backed 9 companies and trades that have all made seven figures. I’ve lived bi-coastal, owned exotic cars, traveled the world first class, and made friends with countless influencers. The material rewards are great, but even greater is my drive and vision to share what I’ve learned with others.
That’s what GerardAdams.com and my mission is about. The thing I enjoy the most about the life I’ve created is being able to share how I did it, mentor others, and encourage aspiring Millennial entrepreneurs to go after their dreams. When I founded Elite Daily, I did it with my intern. Your background doesn’t matter as much as your desire. I believe wholeheartedly that with the right focus and consistency, anyone can live this life.
A defining moment for me was when I spent time with Tony Robbins, a renowned speaker, entrepreneur, and mentor who has had world-wide impact. Tony says, “Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.” This statement has become a driving force for me. A materially rich life without purpose and fulfillment is an empty dream. I knew my work wasn’t done.
So, this movement is about you. I want to show a generation of driven creators how to do what I did, and do it with the right mindset. Taking the road less traveled is not easy, and there are difficulties along the way, but it is my mission to support you on that journey. Through personalized mentorship, speaking events, my newsletter, and my Leaders Create Leaders video series, I hope to offer you tons of valuable content from my experience that will support your adventure into entrepreneurship.
I believe in collaboration, community, networking, and choosing to overcome fear and negative thinking. If you feed your focus, anything is possible, and my story is a testament to that. The offerings and content here are designed with you in mind, to create a platform for your inevitable success. And I’m keeping it relatable and honest in the process.
If you’re hungry, determined, and driven to be a game-changer, you’re in the right place. The path is yours to define. Your passion is unique to you. Only you can create what you’re dreaming of. I’m here to make sure you get where you’re going with actionable tools, opportunities to conceptualize, to launch, and to grow in a way that fulfills you.
Thanks for being here with me. I can’t wait to connect with you!
