John Danes – Expelled From High School To Serial Entrepreneur

Published

on

John Danes grew up in the small town of Goodlettsville, Tennessee. From a young age, he was always a hustler. He vividly remembers selling golf balls, Pokémon cards, coupon books, and action figures. Going through school, he never did very well. Year after year, he was tested for ADD due to his lack of focus. His teachers always saw him as bright and talented, but nothing in the classroom seemed to click.

Going through high school, he was always a talented baseball player and was still hustling. Still, nothing in school seemed to click or work. In 10th grade, he was expelled from his high school for bad behavior and failing grades. After transitioning into homeschooling, he started messing around with e-commerce and social media. He started waiting in line to buy rare sneakers and clothing, and then flipping them for a premium on different e-commerce platforms. This was the first time he truly applied himself and enjoyed what he was doing.

In the summer of 2016, he went to go work for a mentor and close friend at his multi-million dollar e-commerce business in Kansas City, Missouri. He was being paid as intern and working 80 hour weeks. This was the first time his eyes were opened to true wealth and making a life through entrepreneurship, immediately he was hooked.

Destined to make something happen, he started researching all the online business models and ways of making money online. He decided that with his minor experience with social media mixed with the fascination of the way it worked, that starting a digital agency was his best bet. Although it was a rough start at the beginning, now he has completely learned the ins and outs of Social Media and the Business world.

He know owns one of Nashville’s top digital agencies, 99MEDIA. He describes the experience as, “the best personal development training along with a great compensation package”. John is now seeking his goals out with his business partner, Adam Artemis and helping Real Estate agents build their personal brands and get leads on autopilot.

Along with a successful agency, John also decided to start a Podcast in August of 2018, called The No Excuses Show. Soon after the launch, he started to see quick success. With only 17 episodes, he hit the 39th business podcast in the world. John has used podcasting as a way to build his business, personal brand, and network while helping educate others. He has now interviewed individuals like Grant Cardone and many others.

Although John Danes has seen great success for only 19 years old, many people don’t see what has happened behind the scenes. Lots of long nights, early mornings, and part-time jobs. Although John showed no signs of success early on, he is a true testimony to the fact that with hard work and persistence anything can happen. It is great to see what he has achieved and he’s definitely someone to look out for in the future.

Why people call Linda Andrade the Fat Freezing Queen

Published

on

What’s your backstory?

I started my first business when I was 16 years old, it was called “luxe by Linda” and it was mainly focused towards women’s fashion and makeup, I did really well, especially because I was still in high school and girls in my high school started buying from me. I got married at 19 to another badass entrepreneur, my husband Ricky, and since then I’ve started my fat Freezing business which blew up, with plans to franchise soon. 

Can you tell me the story of your prior successes, challenges, and major responsibilities?’

Before I got married and started my own successful business, I was a student at orange coast college. My parents would not let me drop out or I would be kicked out, basically. I was the typical entrepreneur drop out cliche, really wanting to drop out. That was a responsibility I had that really hindered the way to my success. I was taking unnecessary classes just to be busy and keep my parents happy. Eventually, I got married and moved to Vegas, so my parents kind of let go of the whole college thing after that.

What made you decide to choose this career path?

I got fat Freezing done myself, I loved it so much. I got rid of my love handles and tightened my stomach up really nice. I started looking up more about it and decided to take a training to teach me more about it. 1 and a half years later I have 2 locations and have helped thousands achieve the results they want. 

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? Oh my god, in fat freezing there are levels of suction, and I usually go up in levels when they’re numb and can’t feel anything, because otherwise it hurts. One time, I forgot to take the level back down after the 1st area she did, so on her 2nd area, she immediately went to the highest level, and she was freaking out and making the funniest noises, and I couldn’t understand why, I was like “what’s wrong? It has a great grab of fat.” And then I realized she was at the highest level. It was like a solid 45 seconds of confusion and laughter. Then I felt really bad. But it was definitely the funniest mistake I ever made 

What do you think makes your company/personal brand stand out?

Because the product I offer isn’t just catering to 1 person, it caters to everybody. Literally everybody I know needs my service, and they know it too. 

What’s a quote that you live by?

How you do something is how you do everything.

How Tyce Escalante Changed His Life With Digital Marketing in 1 Year

Published

on

Tyce Escalante had his first real introduction to the online world of marketing began when he was 19. There was a group of kids in my town that were in the digital marketing space, and from what I can see, they were killing it. At the time, he was also trying his hand at various online money making models like E-commerce, Affiliate Marketing, and a few more. The only problem was that he kept giving up after every setback. 

So back to the kids from his hometown, according to Tyce Escalante, he became obsessed with keeping up with their every move on social media. He believed in his ability to make things happen, and he knew some way or another; he was going to become part of their group. So after constant direct messages to them, he finally got his chance. On November 18, 2018, Tyce Escalante had been hired on to the Influencer Press team. 

Trials and Tribulations 

Due to Tyce Escalante’s lack of experience in digital marketing, his biggest obstacle was grasping the whole concept of how it worked. Tyce began by being introduced to online sales, and working with a chip on his shoulder; he had a lot to prove to the team. He contributes his fast grasping of digital sales to his mentor Johnny Medina, together they were able to crush sales for influencer press. Within his first two months, Tyce was able to bring in $20,000 in revenue, which opened his eyes to a world of opportunity. 

Now that he knew how to sell things online, he wanted to learn the service that he was selling for thousands of dollars. Tyce quickly asked for more responsibility within the team, and by showing up and working hour after hour, he slowly started to grasp the concepts of digital marketing. The real learning and growth for Tyce took place when he was promoted to client manager within the company and was soon handling every client for a 6 figure agency. For months Tyce was able to absorb everything and hone in on his skills; the skills gave him confidence that he could build a business for himself. This newly learned set of skills is how he began his online career.  

A New Chapter Unfolds 

Tyce Escalante has always been keen on making impulse decisions when it came to any goal he had in mind. So one week before his 20th birthday, he took off to Las Vegas and locked himself in a room until he had built an agency that was generating six figures a year. By utilizing the power of social media to build relationships with people in multiple different businesses, he has been able to leverage those relationships to make a name for himself in the online marketing space. 

Now with one month into 2020, he has set some big goals for his business Next Level Brand, and unlike most online agencies, his customers come first. So with setting values in place to build one of the most successful value-driven agencies and continuing to make a name for him and his business, he is optimistic for multiple partnerships this year to give his clients the best possible results.
