From setting up my first website and getting my first business card printed, I realized I had to learn how to market myself. That search led me down a journey of study that included taking all of the online courses I could get my hands on, buying a lot of books, flying out to workshops, hiring mentors, and eventually working behind the scenes of successful brands.
Starting my business in my teens, I had no idea this entrepreneurial journey was going to require so much personal development and inner-work. Slowly, as I evolved, my business started to evolve. Inspired by the changes I was going through, I decided I wanted to work with the people who inspired me, so I rebranded my company under the new name Influence Society. The name was my intention. Over the years, I was blessed to play my part in campaigns that connected with millions of people globally.
By the time 2020 hit, the world stopped and I sensed things were about to change. My business partner Prince Ea and I decided we were going to launch a video agency called Viral Impact Studios helping creators create viral social media content and luxury education products.
NOMAD. CREATIVE. BIOHACKER.
With my number one value and motivation in life being freedom, I structured my companies in a way that allowed me to travel full-time as a digital nomad. Born and raised in Canada, travel has surprisingly become one of the biggest mentors in my life, so naturally, the world has become my home now. When I'm not working, I'm usually indulging in my wellness, social life, creative endeavours, or studies of the mind/body/soul.
My work goes deeper than just branding and marketing. It's been a vehicle for me to grasp a deeper understanding of the human experience and how to optimize it to live an elevated life. This is the driving force for why I work with who I work with and the type of projects I get involved in. The deeper mission here is to make wellness mainstream.
After hustling and grinding for years, I've been loving the process of my newfound commitment to my wellness. The daily research has taught me so much about myself and the wisdom is healing.
I'm currently diving into the power of AI and how we can use it to understand our audience on a deeper level, automate the boring tasks we don't love and scale our brands with ease.
I'm not the typical "I'm going to help you make money online" or "Look at my rented lambo" guy. Although money is important, I'm the "I'm going to help you pursue something deeper" kind of guy.
I believe all of us were put here for a reason, with a purpose and a calling. I believe my job through this platform is to help you discover that so you can build something meaningful to you.
