Matthew Ortega (name changed) is one of the most inspiring gentlemen that I have ever come across. He used to be a teacher at a school and while teaching at the school, all he could afford was a small apartment in a neighborhood where only the Muslims lived. He wanted to get out of that place no matter what it took. He took an oath to not shave his beard until he is able to buy a villa in a plush neighborhood.
Matthew didn’t have enough money to start a real life business but he knew that he could start an e-commerce for pennies but he didn’t have any idea anything about what to sell, how to sell, how to create a website. He used the internet only to watch Youtube videos, check out Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, Twitter and last but not the least to look for the better and improved ways to teach his students.
When Matthew put his house for sale, one after another, each and every prospect ran away after seeing women wearing niqabs, chadars, burkas and men wearing white Muslim hats and saying ‘Subhanallah’ all the time. It took Matthew 2.5 years to sell this one cheap apartment and he had to sell it for lesser than the half of what he expected.
Matthew’s grandfather is still alive and well; this old gentleman is very empowering and encouraging. Matthew’s grandfather should become a motivational speaker, he will be more popular than Tony Robbins in no time if he does.
Matthew has already developed a great product but he is unable to sell the same yet, he is learning the art of selling with top e-commerce related websites like ‘ecommercegenius’ and many others.
Nur Kurnia (name changed) owns a fleet of several luxurious high performance SUVs. The latest toys in Nur’s garage are a Volkswagen Touareg and a Volkswagen Tiguan gifted to Nur by her one and only sister who owns a Volkswagen dealership. Nur shook up the Turkish cosmetic product industry with her innovations back in 2015.
Nur claims that one of her major business competitor’s stooge was working as Nur’s personal chefs who used to mix up intoxicating pills in her food to make her go mad. Nur suffered all of 2017 from paranoid rages due to drug withdrawal.
Nur’s business is currently suffering due to her absence from the business in all of 2017. Nur is trying her best to become the queen of Turkish cosmetics industry again but it will take a lot more time. Nur’s brand has lost the appeal that it enjoyed till 2016 but Nur says that she is confident enough to get back the same reputation very soon.
Nur’s boyfriend puts personal pleasure above everything else. He left Nur when she needed him most.
Nur has also lost a great amount of hair on her head due to the hormonal imbalances created first by drug intoxication and then by drug withdrawal. She has been looking at hair transplant images for a while thinking about getting one done on herself as well.
For the past 4 months, Nur has been spending an hour before she falls asleep writing a book on similarities and differences between the Asian and European culture.
Nur has been doing a research lately on whether her business will do great in the Indian subcontinent. She comprehends that the Indian subcontinent has a problem with the job creation and she think she can create some jobs there and make some profits doing so simultaneously. If she ever starts her business in the Indian subcontinent, her country of business inauguration would be Nepal.
Terence is a 32 year old guy born and raised in Boston. He used to work at one of Massachusetts’ oldest and most formidable companies as a customer representative. Terence was getting 63, 500 American Dollars as the salary while working there but he was getting bored of his job. The work hours were now becoming like a hell for him.
Terence didn’t know what else he could do, so he kept going to the work as long as he didn’t discover anything else that was more profitable and more fun. He always knew that there is a lot of potential in him, but he never tried anything. He had very few friends who could guide him, and all his friends used to work at odd hourly wage paying jobs.
Terence was better than all his friends but he knew that there is a potential in him to become much more than he already was and he would do anything to become the best version of him. Terence didn’t have a mentor to guide him, but he started watching Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy and Zig Ziglar in a hope that these men will guide him in some way. To an extent, these men taught him the art of self-discipline and time management, but this wasn’t all that Terence expected from these men. Terence used to believe that these men can act as his mentor.
Terence was still working at his job and after coming back from his job, he would look for ways to make money online on Google. Somehow, not on Google, but on Twitter, he accidentally found out something that would change his life forever, he discovered a guide on how to sell on Amazon for beginners, and that was the start of his new life. He started selling low competition items on Amazon, and gradually got so busy that he had to quit his customer representative job forever.
He has been earning around 15k a month, which we think is a great amount for someone working from home in Massachusetts.
Preeti (name changed) is an Indian woman who taught Hindi in schools for over 15 years. For these 15 years, she took very few days off and would often catch petty illnesses like cold, flu and fever about every 3 months on an average. She wasn’t happy with her life. She even went to teach Hindi to Russia where they offered more salary than she was getting in India. She moved there to Russia in the hope of earning more. After reaching there, she found out that the Russia was more expensive than India when it comes to almost everything, so the salary she was getting was bring in the same value as her job in India.
She was also getting ill more frequently there. Her husband would tell her to quit the job once and forever, and take care of the kids at home but Preeti wouldn’t agree as she knew the money her husband earned wasn’t sufficient to take care of the family.
The salary she was getting in Russia was saving Preeti a bit more even after all the expenses. She was given a nice home as well there to live in, and many of the expenses were taken care of by the school authority.
Preeti was also given a laptop and a free internet connection by the school authority to use at home which she used to get rid of that job later on. It is a very interesting story how she started looking out for ways to make money online using the internet connection and laptop provided by the school authority and found Google search scraper one day.
Preeti has come back to India now and she has been making a staggering 8k USD per month for the last 3 months. She has also left her teaching job.
