Today’s guest didn’t start life with many advantages, but his parents taught him that resourcefulness is a FAR greater asset than resources. Before he turned 25, he became a published author, launched a product that made $44,738 in one week, took over the business development of a 7-figure online education company, traveled the world to 23 countries with his wife, and networked his way into an exclusive mastermind for the world's top thought leaders that costs $25,000/yr to attend. He is on a mission to change the global conversation around what “success” means for an entire generation of entrepreneurs through his newest brand, 7-Figure Millennials. The movement’s focus is to inspire millennial entrepreneurs to pursue BIG financial goals while PRIORITIZING their happiness, health, and relationships. Please join me in welcoming Brandon Fong.
