What’s Holding You Back? 💭💫

What’s Holding You Back? 💭💫


What´s up? It´s your boy G! Y´all feeling pumped already? 

We haven’t connected since before 4th of July so I hope you all enjoyed the holiday with your families and beloved ones! I was down at the Shore and spent true quality time with my family. Actually, I would like to share a little story with you, which will motivate you to work hard towards your goals. As you might have seen on my social media in the past, I have a little nephew Jacob, who I love with all my heart. Not only is he an incredibly love able person, but also is he the next big time entrepreneur. Before we went to the Shore, he bought himself a package of 100 balloons and taught himself how to twist and form them into animal shaped balloons. He took the balloons with him, opened up a stand, labeled his little company “twisted creations” and sold all of the balloons for $50 USD within a timeframe of only 3 hours. You should have seen the smiles of the kids, who bought his dog-shaped balloons! If my 12 years old nephew can make an impact, what is holding YOU back?


On another note, we hosted another Startup Grind event at Fownders, which was powered by Google, last week. As a guest, we had Loren Brill, founder of “Sweet Loren’s”.

She has an incredibly inspiring story. She made a comeback from being diagnosed with cancer to making her company´s product be listed in Whole Foods and other major retailers. It’s now a major success and she beat cancer. One of the main takeaways was to not over analyze the market when looking to start an entrepreneurial venture. Sometimes, you just need to jump right at it. Risk not having everything perfectly set up, be a little naive, put yourself out there and hustle until your dream becomes R.E.A.L.I.T.Y.!

For all of you, who missed the Startup Grind, we have another event coming up! There will be the Name Summit 2017 event, sponsored by Fownders, on the 7th and 8th of August. It will be on an open panel with Greg Yuna and I. We will be talking about our personal brands and how we established them. We will also be having experts from Fownders at our booth, who will be giving you mentor sessions. As a token of appreciation for you guys, I have an exclusive 50% discount code, which is only available to my loyal supporters: goo.gl/qiXrDX  

I honestly can´t stress enough how important personal branding is. Your personal brand will differentiate you from the competition and everybody else. If you don’t work towards a strong personal brand in our day and age, you are definitely sleeping on one of the biggest opportunities. With Fownders we are still working so hard on the Social Currency Masterclass, which will provide you all the necessary knowledge, strategies, and tactics in order to establish a dope personal brand. 

Talking about personal branding, I have spent time with an amazing individual, who was also on Season One of Leaders Create Leaders (Episode 4)– Jake Paul & Team 10! It is so dope to see, how Jake truly elevated his personal brand within the last couple of months/ years. We have been together in LA, working with Harley Davidson, a company with heritage and history. I would have never thought that I would one day ride a Harley. Honestly, at first I was a bit scared, but I made it. #RideOrDie

Last but not least, I am giving away another Facetime call! If you want to win it, go on my most recent post on Instagram and comment why YOU should win a #FaceTimeGiveaway. Use the hashtag, so I know you are participating.

Remember, face your fears. Say to yourself… 

I will succeed.

I will live out my dreams. 

I will not stop in the face of adversity.

I am a leader.


Peace and love,

“The Millennial Mentor” ™
