Learn How Alan Hidalgo became a serial entrepreneur



  1. Tell us about yourself

My name is Alan Hidalgo, and I would consider myself to be a serial “millennial entrepreneur” by society’s standards, but I find myself a ‘capitalist’ and prefer that term.

I’ve been fortunate to build, grow, and advise several 6 & 7 figure companies within multiple industries. I currently own a successful marketing firm that generates leads for 7 & 8 figure medical and outdoor service companies. 

My company also did marketing for several influential NFL, MLB, and NBA players and has worked with names like Gary Vaynerchuk.

I also have a partnership in a SaaS software company and run several offline businesses like an Uber taxi fleet business, ATMs, and Airbnb rentals, to name a few.

Aside from my professional life, I’m an avid traveler who has been to over 28 countries before I was 21.

My favorite hobby is traveling to other countries and cities, and I teach people how they can leverage internet businesses to be able to move around without having to worry about how they’re going to generate income.

 I also enjoy politics, entrepreneur educating, and singing.

2. When did you discover you had this skill, and how did it start?

I discovered my business skills when I was 12 years old upon starting my very first business, which was a pet boarding company called “Alan’s Affordable Pet Care,” which went from being just me taking care of dogs to becoming the most successful pet boarding business in my local area.

Using SEO properly, I was able to be listed as the first business in my area for pet boarding services and quickly started getting busy with activity.

I started this business because I wanted to make extra money in the summers since my parents didn’t always buy me things I wanted, I had to be creative and find ways to earn money, which I’m thankful for.

3. Tell us about your company

I run multiple companies, but I’d like to take this opportunity to focus on a new business I launched recently called “Car Fleet Academy,” which is an entrepreneurial education company that teaches people how they can make six figures leveraging Uber and Lyft without ever having to drive a car.

It’s like running your own taxi company, but instead of it being taxis, it’s Uber cars. Imagine having cars making you money daily all hours of the day while you’re sitting at home with the kids or traveling the World. Most people think cars are a depreciating asset, which in most cases, they are because of how people use them or lack “using them.”

 In the same way, home or apartment can be turned into an appreciating asset only by turning it into a rental income property; a car can be turned into a daily ATM, which is cash flow positive.

I went from using my car when I was in college to owning 13 cars that generate $3,000-5,000 in monthly profits making money semi-guaranteed. What I mean by this is: Uber and Lyft are always creating money in every city. 

There are millions of dollars up for grabs in the rideshare market for anyone that wants it in their city; this is because transportation is a constant market need and will never run out! People always will need to get from point A to point B. 

All you have to do is serve those people, and best of all, Uber and Lyft send the customers to you vs. in a traditional business where you have to figure out how to properly market to your customers. You don’t have to worry about any of that with this business model.

Car Fleet Academy has successful students in 50+ U.S. markets, Canada, Latin America, Europe, and Australia now. Our average student consists of the everyday entrepreneur, car dealerships, former Uber/Lyft drivers, retired couples, stay-at-home moms, and everybody in between.

4. There are a lot of young people out there who are trying hard to be as successful as you are, what words of advice can you give to them. 

I would say get into a business first off that is based on people’s needs or necessities vs. their wants. People will always need to spend money on things they need, for example – food, water, shelter, transportation, insurance. nce, etc.…

These are the industries that are mandatory for one to live in the 21st century. I would say get into a business like this first and build it and scale it up. 

The money is also in being a supplier; suppliers will always be productive because people depend on them. It would also make the most sense to hop into a need’s based business where you have some level of interest or passion because that’ll make it feel a little less like work, and you won’t get bored with it. 

Live below your means for a while and reinvest your money into suitable investments, and you’ll set yourself up for a very successful future.

5. Do you think you have any exceptional talent that’s a key factor for success in your business?

My unique talent that has brought me a lot of success is probably my persistence. Many people have told me I am the most persistent person they’ve ever met.

 And in some ways, that is good or bad, but in business, it is critical. Having extreme persistence is the drive that gets you up in the morning and gets people to give you the time of day.

Everyone’s style is different, but I can tell you for the fact that many doors have opened for me, and opportunities or relationships were created because of my persistence. If you want people to believe in you, you have to do whatever and anything it takes.

People who give up easily or are continually changing their image/approach, don’t honestly know themselves, and they won’t get that far from what I’ve observed. You have to stick with something and go full throttle. Eventually, someone will say yes.

6. Is there anyone you’d like to give thanks for being with you on your journey so far?

Yes, I always like to thank my family for being very supportive throughout my journey and bringing along a unique perspective and support system. I’ve also been blessed with exceptional mentors and business partners that are very loyal to me.

 I want to thank God more than all for guiding me along the way and being there during hard times.

7. There’s no business without challenges, what challenges did you face, and how did you overcome them?

Right, that’s very true. I guess for me wanting to increase has been a challenge, and knowing how to have a complete balance so that things develop at a pace that they’re supposed to.

I’ve also had challenges at times with not knowing when to relax a little and let things manifest at the right times due to a lack of patience. 

It’s essential to be patient and realize things take time. I’ve been able to overcome these areas by stressing less and trusting the process more. Since then, things have been much better.

8. How long have you been doing digital marketing, and what is your most significant achievement?

I’ve been in the digital marketing space since probably 16, which would have been in like 2012. I’ve always been in love with the internet and would always bring a laptop with me wherever I go since I was a young child.

I started learning the internet at an extremely young age and built SEO for businesses since age 12. I developed a keen eye for online marketing since then and used those skills for many areas in business. 

My most significant achievement is probably closing a 6 figure deal in a single day; it was a great feeling!

9. We would love to stay posted on your journey. List out all your contacts.
