Exploring The Boundaries Of The Non-profit Sector With Tc Chandamany

Published

on

 TC Chandamany is a philanthropist, an Asian-American artist, and an advocate for positive change. TC was born in a refugee camp in Bangkok, Thailand where he didn’t have what many of us would call “the ideal lifestyle.”

As a refugee, TC lived in some of the most humbling conditions you could think of; he didn’t have electricity and lacked the basic necessities of life. Fortunately for TC and his family, he was offered a sponsored residency in the United States by an American family. TC finally had the chance to live the American dream thanks to the kind gesture made by the family.

 TC didn’t let this golden opportunity go to waste and today, he is the co-founder of Mission Earth, a platform that helps bridge the gap between everyday individuals and charities. They created this platform in a bid to help transform the world while allowing it’s beneficiaries to earn an income along the way.

So far, TC has grown a network of over 100k supporters and was nominated for the 2018 Influencer Awards in Monaco. TC has also collaborated with major brands such as Google, NASA, and Ralph Lauren.

Helping Others

 As said earlier, Mission Earth helps bridge the gap between everyday humans and charity/non-profit organizations. Basically, they help charities secure more funding and support through their platform. In return, the beneficiaries/individuals receive some form of rewards and an opportunity to travel with Mission Earth.

Mission Earth understands that to exist, humans need to live their lives and to do that, they need money. With that in mind, the mission earth social platform creates an opportunity for everyday individuals to get paid for doing good things for their society.

Standing Out

TC shares that even though his industry is heavily saturated, there are enough slices of the pie to go around for everyone. With the overly saturated market, you might assume that it’s virtually impossible for Mission Earth to possess a sense of uniqueness. 

But if you take a closer look, you’ll find out the case is the opposite. TC combined what most entrepreneurs ignore today with his brand (Passion and love for what you do). He built a solid foundation for his brand by showcasing his love for outer space and the mysterious universe to the world. This set him light years apart from the other brands in his industry and has given him the name ” The Astronaut Of Instagram.”

Overcoming Obstacles 

 TC explains that growth brings a lot of challenges and by overcoming these challenges you become stronger and eventually, you’ll achieve success. TC is where he is today because he chose to face his problems head-on rather than run away from them.   

TC shares that his biggest challenge was himself. Back then, he had this urge to be someone he wasn’t. Notwithstanding the fear, he faced this obstacle with an open mind. He took some time off to reflect on his life and he came to the realization that he was where he was supposed to be. The moment he acknowledged his achievements, he shot for the stars and became the person he wanted to be.

Johnny Medina was once driven by a sport. Basketball was what he lived for, he dreamed of playing in the big league, but he had a career shortage as he tore his meniscus in his right knee. From fancy 360 dunks to not being able to play competitive at all. Johnny did not know what to do with his life. After working regular 9-5's for two years he then got into Sales & online marketing. In the First 3 months he became a 5 figure earner and is now a sales coach, consultant and expert in public relations.

How A Young Entrepreneur Followed In The Footsteps of His Father to Find His Own Success

Published

on

Monetizing a YouTube channel with ad revenue can be easy once the subscriber count starts to hit 6 figures. Advertisers love putting paid promotion on channels of YouTubers who have a loyal, unique audience that all have common interests. Christoph Filgertshofer, after working relentlessly to build his following to 200k subscribers, decided to go a completely different route with monetization. Having grown up surrounded by entrepreneurship, he decided to get a start in eCommerce.

Growing up in Germany, Christoph’s father would always share his exciting stories as an entrepreneur. His dad would share stories of his practice and recruiting clients with him at a young age, and the lessons he learned from these stories stuck with him throughout his childhood and teenage years. By the time he was old enough to become further immersed in entrepreneurship, Christoph started hustling flipping Pokemon cards and selling newspapers as young as 14 years old. He saw all of his friends being handed iPods from their parents, and made a pact with himself to make enough money on his own to save up for one.

With all of this experience at such a young age, it was no surprise that Christoph had such an interest in selling products online and working for himself. Even with all of the success he would wind up experiencing, he still had his shortcomings off the bat as he did not have enough experience. His first store flopped, but he worked tirelessly to learn the craft and perfect his online store and market it correctly. Similar to his YouTube experience, his hard work would pay off in a major way as he soon saw himself generating 5 figures of revenue in one month and scaling it to multiple six figures in revenue. 

Christoph has found that he has come to enjoy his successes now simply because of how much work went into his process. Without failures and setbacks, the success would be taken for granted and would ruin the whole journey for him. Before his story even began, Christoph was inspired by his father as a little kid hearing his stories after he would come home from work. His dad would always share with him how he never grew tired of his work, and always had a new problem to solve to keep him on his toes. Hearing all of this as a kid, Christoph knew the only option for him as a career would be to start his own business and be his own boss as well. 

As a result of all of his hard work, Christoph is rewarded most by the amount of freedom he has on a daily basis. He can work from wherever he wants and can plan a trip today and be gone tomorrow. The ability to do whatever you want, work for yourself, travel, and make a great living has made all of the struggles and setbacks well worth it. And we are sure, that’s not it – there will be more occasions we hear from this young entrepreneur in the future.
