Multi-Millionaire Cryptocurrency Entrepreneur Reveals All-Hustle, Failure and Success
From humble beginnings to building a thriving trading career and diversifying into other businesses- Nenad continues to conquer every industry he sets his eyes on. A serial entrepreneur, angel investor, philanthropist, trader- he continues to inspire millions and create millionaires in his industry.
Who else do you know that not only has made millions but has helped others become successful? He is also the CEO of Advance Crypto Academy– the #1 Online Platform in North America that has 16,000 members that have access to the most updated information on crypto and forex.
Today we sit down with Neno to discuss how he continues to build an empire and achieve success at the young age of 25:
Neno- thank you for your time, how did this all start?
I had big dreams as a young kid. Immigrating at the age of 2 from Serbia while there was a war during 1992 forced my parents to start life all over again in Canada. While my dad was successful back home, in Canada to make ends meet and provide for the family- he started a Construction and Renovation company servicing ultra-high net worth individuals;
I was amazed by the wealth and the appearance of the homes my dad was working on. During the night time, my mom worked a job to help my father out and ensure we had enough. While helping my dad for free and working at his shop, I began to realize the value of money.
I absolutely hated school- the social circles, the useless gossip- I despised every moment of it. I attended college but I dropped out after 2 months because I was against the traditional education system and I never understood why I should be listening to the professor when he wasn’t rich and didn’t live the lifestyle that I aspired to live. I knew I was destined for more and I took the risk and dropped out.
I googled how to be rich and came across 2 books “Rich Dad Poor Dad” along with “Think and Grow Rich” which taught me the mindset of the wealthy and opened me up to a new world.
I was always a risk-taker. I would rather take a chance and fail vs dying, knowing that I never took a chance. I am not afraid to go homeless while going after my dreams. The saying “You miss 100% of the shots you never take” is real. I am willing to die for my dreams.
How did you get into trading?
I got a full-time job in the sales and finance department in a head office of a company in Oakville selling products like computers, home furniture, and other things. The goal for me was to work and save my own money but I was starting to realize that it was difficult to do so because of my income=my expenses. I needed another way out.
“On my way to success, I always asked myself the difference between the richest man in America and the poorest man. I realized it was a fine line of knowing information followed by application. Warren Buffett knows the art of making money and applies it. He may not have the highest IQ but knowing how to apply information and knowledge has made him billions”
I made the company I was working for $2.2 million in 2 years but my salary was about $50,000 after taxes which led me to the realization of 2 things:
- My income was spent on covering my expenses and I could barely save anything.
- A 9-5 was not going to help me save enough money to get rich
“THERE WAS A TIME DURING THIS PROCESS- I REMEMBER 1 DAY WALKING INTO MY CAR AND IT FELT LIKE I HAD 1000 POUNDS ON MY SHOULDER, I WAS ABSOLUTELY DEPRESSED AND NEEDED A WAY OUT”
A friend introduced me to an MLM opportunity and I learned about the power of residual income and using other people to leverage time. The concept of working ½ the time and make more money if not equivalent to my job excited me. After not being as successful I later joined another company and started earning $1000/month but started becoming stagnant in the process.
On Instagram, I saw an individual that had the lifestyle- nice watches and I messaged him asking “What do you do ?” He met me at a mall and he showed me the power of Forex and how he made $75,000 in 3 days, I was floored and couldn’t believe it.
It was not easy to trade and I didn’t succeed for the first 3 years and had some personal problems which led me to take a break after. After starting a landscaping and shisha lounge which wasn’t fun to run- I decided to figure this forex thing out and had an epiphany. Something clicked, and I started making profits with my first big month being $12,000.
“Trading is 90% psychology and 10% analytics”
At 19, I told myself that by 23 I needed to have $1M and a supercar. One week before my 23rd birthday- I had a gold Lamborghini and $1M. For me, it was either I get rich or die trying in the process- there was no other option.
How did you get involved in Bitcoin?
In early 2017, I needed to diversify my money and a couple of people approached me asking about BTC. I decided to research the tech behind this and understand the application even further. I was introduced to one of my friend’s partners who flipped a $6,000 account to $32M. I made $1M in 9 months and I introduced my friends to it and they made money in crypto to.
I later launched Advance Crypto Academy due to the popular demand from the results my clients received. In addition- people wanted to know how I achieved success and I am very transparent with my trades. If you go on my Instagram stories- you will see tonnes of results and testimonials of people that succeed with my trades.
How do you want people to remember you?
I want those close to me to have memories of the good times they spent with me- the times I made them smile and laugh. In addition, I want to make every person around me a better person and create that spark of inspiration in others to go and follow their dreams.
You have a dream? Go out and make it happen.
Snowball Launches Simplest Way To Invest in Crypto Indices
The selection process for investing in individual tokens is fraught with uncertainty and suffers from uneven regulation. Selecting winners from losers and trying to time the market has proven incredibly difficult. However, actively-managed portfolios often underperform, not to mention that the fees they charge can significantly impact any investor gains. As a case in point, globally-recognized cryptocurrency hedge fund Pantera Capital’s Digital Asset Fund has underperformed against bitcoin, dropping 26% last May compared with bitcoin’s decline of 15%. Nobel laureate Eugena Fama and Kenneth French carried out a study which found that only 2% of the 3,156 fund managers they examined had statistically significant evidence of success, and concluded that a portfolio of low-cost index funds is likely to perform as well as a portfolio of the top 3% of actively-managed funds and better than the other 97%!
Snowball Selection Process
The Snowball team is consistently observing the cryptocurrency market, looking for new entrants into the index space, then performing the necessary fund evaluation and selection process to bring new portfolios onto our platform. While the effort to evaluate indices is expected to be ongoing, since the methodologies of indices do not change, the effort is singular, allowing significantly more coverage by a smaller team, while providing broad market coverage across the entire spectrum.
Snowball employs a strict selection process to assure that portfolios listed on its platform meet a high standard of quality. We have identified the following critical evaluation criteria as the baseline for our selection process.
The app, who has established major partnerships with Kraken, PrimeTrust (SEC qualified custody ensuring money of investors are stored safely) Plaid and Bittrex boosts one, easy to use place for investors to begin their crypto investing journey. They aim to not only make mass adoption possible but to also make it as seamless and easy for the investor to find success by handling most of the due diligence on the back end of the app. Following in the footsteps of Vanguard’s John Bogle who pioneered traditional index fund investing the Snowball app strictly offers bundled investment options or what they call ”crypto portfolios”, all of which have been hand-selected and heavily vetted by their team of professionals and are set to automatically rebalance to follow the fund’s allocations. Taking out the guesswork and extensive research needed to figure out which tokens to buy and sell
The mobile app was approved earlier this year by the SEC as a Registered Investment Advisor, becoming one of the first platforms of it’s kind to be registered with the SEC and allowing them to make investment recommendations through their mobile application. Snowball is now available for download on Apple App Store for people based in the US.
“I’m excited to see the launch of Snowball’s new smart crypto investment automation platform because it will finally provide Main Street investors with access to sophisticated investment and trading strategies for crypto assets.” Brian Kerr, CEO of Kava.io and Investor in Snowball
SCIA empowers everyone to invest intelligently and efficiently in cryptocurrency. We have ‘smart technology, now it’s time to implement ‘smart investment.’
So, what is ‘smart investment’?
“It’s about finding someone whose livelihood is trading in cryptocurrencies; someone who has access to information; someone who has that ivy league degree; who has an evolving investment thesis and is doing diligence on every single token, reading all the whitepapers and shaking the hands of those CEO’s and teams. You need to consistently track their progress and create your own research and thesis-based off that information; subscribe to that.” –Parul Gujral
So, with Snowball, it’s as simple as downloading the app, connecting your bank account that you use every day, choosing the portfolio you want to invest in, and then sitting back to watch your portfolio snowball and grow.
Users of Snowball can also look forward to features like tax optimization, tax-loss harvesting, staking and their investments paying them interest which are set to be released on their platform in the coming months.
Interview with Konstantin Kaiser
We had the pleasure of interviewing Konstantin Kaiser, Founder of Evolute-pr.com
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
- When I graduated from school, I wanted to get my foot into the fitness industry. I shared my knowledge on how to naturally build a fit and healthy body on Instagram and my page exploded at some point, even though I wasn’t posting photos frequently. After that, I was offered a model job abroad. The model agency wanted to fly me to L.A. and pay me $180.000 for one month of shooting, but, after giving it a lot of thought, I declined the offer because I didn’t feel comfortable with me being in this business. I thought there were way better models than me and I wanted to achieve more than shooting aesthetically pleasing photos. So I spend a lot of time in front of my computer, reading articles and books on technology, society, and the latest trends.
When I finally discovered Bitcoin in 2015 I was sincerely intrigued by the blockchain technology. I was already aware of the rigged and flawed monetary system we are living in, so I was instantly hooked by the possibilities that the blockchain technology could deliver for humankind. Always dreaming of a world of freedom and privacy, I spent all my savings on Bitcoin and Ethereum at a very early stage. When everything blew up in 2017 I was in college studying economics. I came to realize that if I use this one in a lifetime opportunity and focus fully on the blockchain industry, I would have way more promising prospects than if I let college consume all of my time. After spending dozens of sleepless nights in front of my computer, it became clear to me: The most entrepreneurial-friendly, European country to open a business in is the island of Cyprus. I quit college, packed my stuff and booked a flight to Larnaca. I quickly integrated and founded my first B2B company which offers services for companies in hyper-growth industries. I realized that many new technologies like the blockchain are not yet regularly covered in media outlets, so I decided to bridge the gap between high-quality content and exposure on major publications. Interestingly enough, you can consider many of the new technologies as hyper-growth industries. Hyper-growth industries have the capacity to disrupt society at an unseen, rapid pace.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your company?
When I immigrated to a new country at the age of 19, I left family and friends back in Germany. As a consequence, I had to make new connections in order to find new friends. My business partner published an article on Entrepreneur.com which lead to a connection via LinkedIn. This was the beginning of a very valuable, amicable business relationship. This is funny because I never believed I would find like-minded people when I lived in Germany. I never imagined immigrating to a small Mediterranean island would resolve that issue, but it did.
Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?
After a week-long extensive outreach to potential clients, we realized that our email provider had an issue which resulted in us not receiving emails. When we finally fixed the issue, an interested client canceled his order, before we even realized that he had accepted our proposal.
What do you think makes your company stand out? Can you share a story?
There are many PR agencies spamming emails to thousands of journalists. We focus on high-quality content that was created and written by experts in the fields. We always make sure to do extensive research before we write a pitch. Not every company is interesting enough to be covered in media outlets. Also, I haven’t seen any marketing agency focusing on hyper-growth industries.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Think of everything as a “wave”. If you are having a hard time and it feels like everything is going down, you need to be aware that this is just the preparation for the next wave up. Bad luck ends and things can change drastically in a matter of days. If you have a strong vision and your values are clear to you, there is no failure which defeats you. Learn from your mistakes and always be grateful, even for the bad events in your life. Studying charts day in and day out really helped me to build this mindset. Giving up when all chips are down is like selling the bottom. You don’t want to sell the bottom.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I was always a lone wolf standing for my own ideas and thoughts against the crowd. Some of my teachers were really mad about my questions. I am a very logical thinker and I am always very skeptical. If something doesn’t add up I start to ask questions. That is a trait that my teachers, and other authorities, disliked about me. However, I wouldn’t have achieved any of the success I experienced today if my mother wouldn’t have believed in me. She was always very supportive and never discouraged me from following my dreams. I am forever thankful for being this lucky to have a loving mother. Without her, I would have surely lost faith in myself since no one believed in me.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I wrote a book about veganism and how it helps your health and our environment. I am sincerely convinced that mankind has no other option than turning vegan in the future if we don’t start to produce organic meat without slaughtering animals. I am currently trying to become a person of influence to support young individuals to unleash their full potential. Legends are made, not born.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. Jim Rohn
In my teenage years, I had a very negative mindset. I always thought that I deserve to be happy and that I will suddenly become happy because of external factors. Only when I realized that nobody cares whether I am happy or not, I understood that I have to take responsibilities. Happiness comes from within and you can’t expect it to fall from the sky. The key to happiness is self-awareness.
What are your “5 things I wish someone told me before I started my company” and why. Please share a story or example for each.
- All marketers are Liars.
Being authentic and honest is good, but, to arouse interest, one has to create emotions. Exaggeration is a powerful marketing tool. As long as you focus on delivering the desired end-results, you can make your story much bigger than it ultimately is in reality.
- Everything is much easier than you think.
Initially, I thought you have to be a professional full-stack developer to build a high standards website. I also thought that you need to study journalism to publish well-written articles in top tier publications and I thought you need to study mathematics to do technical analyses on stocks. However, in today’s world, you can learn literally anything in a matter of weeks if you have the right work ethic and an internet connection.
- School is a waste of time
I wish I would have started my business way earlier. I lost precious years to learning irrelevant nonsense in school. I have learned almost every skill that I have by myself, using the internet and online courses.
- Change your thoughts and you change your world.
You set the limits yourself. Whether you think you can do or can’t do it, you are right. The way you look at the things in your life will ultimately decide where your life is going. If you focus on the positive, you will notice much more to be happy about. This cuts both ways: Negative thinking will make your life much harder and way less enjoyable. You see what you want to see.
5. Take responsibility for everything that happens in your life.
Only when you abolish the concept of luck and misfortune, you take full control of your life. If you perceive yourself as an unlucky person, you will ultimately be unlucky. If you experience misfortune, make sure to search for what you could have done better. This will establish a strong mindset which can’t be dragged down by the idea that the world is just not made for you. You will experience luck soon enough. Waiting for it or feeling bad for yourself because you were unlucky won’t help the situation at all. Leave your victim role forever, it will help tremendously.
You are a person of great influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amounts of good to the people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger.
It amazes me that you ask exactly that because starting a movement was always my ultimate goal. I would convince people to listen to their inner voice, to their conscience, I would tell them to not get distracted by misinformation and authorities. The world is full of lies, one has to use his own sanity to find the truth. I personally believe in the existence of eternity and that we will all experience each other’s lives. If everyone would believe this too, no one would do harm to other living beings for egotistical reasons, since it would be an act against yourself when you cause suffering for others. When it becomes egoistical to live a peaceful and pacifistic life, that’s the moment when humankind will finally be able to unite and live in harmony.
