Meet The 23 Year-Old CEO Who Has Taken The World By Storm

Published

on

Not every day do you come across an overachiever who has firms valued over a million dollars, partnering with numerous initiatives, a mentor, an investor, a success coach, and an author.

Quiane Crews is the founder and CEO of LPG Technology, Inc. Just like many success stories you read about, Quiane dropped out of high school in 2015 to pursue his dreams. Quiane found his success in 2016 after partnering up with a friend drop-shipping on sites like Amazon and eBay where he grossed $1.2M. Mr. Crews partnered up with Shenzhen Communications Co. where they developed smartphones, laptops and wearable devices. In 2017 Quiane parted ways from Shenzhen Communications Co. and started developing technology for his new tech startup LPG Technology.

Starting merely at a tender age of seventeen, he initiated his entrepreneur life with network marketing. This gave him a brief idea about leadership and team building. His first taste of success began with the initiative Live Free Retire Young that he successfully compiled with a bunch of friends.

Later, he ventured into drop-shipping on Amazon and eBay, with his personal website. He then started outsourcing to China to sample and develop numerous products for his tech firm.

In January of 2018, he had reached out to the now Executive Chairman of Sprint, Marcelo Claure on Instagram to develop shoes for him. His goal was to make him some custom sprint shoes and initiative a long-lasting relationship for a potential partnership. Excitement reached a thousand folds when Mr. Crews received a response the very next day and the discussions began.

Quiane Crews started sending across the shoes to him, and this journey was as exciting as it could be. Sadly, since his smartphone was in the development stage, Marcelo showed little interest. Although, this helped Mr. Crews in his journey.

At 23, he is the world’s youngest to develop smartphones, with the idea of the same dating back to 2015.

The smartphone journey found him the path to practical education and correct direction in life. He had reached out to James Umda, an investor out of Canada, who wanted to invest 800,000 USD into his shoe idea. The investor backed out because of his inclination towards technology. This is what triggered Mr. Crews into launching a smartphone. He was quick and swift in developing a business plan and connecting with a manufacturer in China.

He was brave enough to turn down the investor in order to research more and outsource manufacturing. This is where he found the true education. Education through research and experience. After over 2 years of trial, and practical education in this humongous field, the R&D team came up with Proxelo S.

His advice for the readers to go for what they crave for. A free bird cannot be caged, and it is meant to fly. Being a 23 year old entrepreneur launching a new smartphone, Mr. Crew believes that dreams don’t work until you do. Age is a mere number, and experience is the best teacher. Surrounding yourself with the right people, and understanding the fact that “your network is actually your best net-worth”, you can reach out to the horizon and build a galaxy above it.

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.

Meet The Man Behind In10sity Fitness United, Reggie Brown Jr

Published

on

Reggie Brown Jr, widely known as MrIn10sity, is the founder of In10sity Fitness United, a health and fitness brand that helps its clients achieve their body goals while transforming their lives at the same time.

Reggie has traversed different industries such as construction, automotive engineering, and sales. Eventually, he settled down in the wellness/ supplement industry.

In this article, Reggie shares how he’s achieved success and overcome the numerous challenges he faces as an entrepreneur in the supplements industry. 

Getting Passed The Roadblocks

The supplement industry isn’t used to seeing individuals like Reggie top the ladder. Being at the top of the food chain has its perks, but it also has its cons. Reggie explains that sometimes he gets backlash from the community on the advice he gives out. 

As an entrepreneur, Reggie also encounters obstacles like client retainment, customer service demands, product creation, and brand growth. He explains that sometimes he fails when facing these obstacles, but he doesn’t let that stop him from achieving his goals.

You see, failure is a part of the process, anytime Reggie experiences failure, he quickly adapts, perseveres, and learns from his mistakes. This helps him stay on the right path and push forward to success.

The Long Run

Reggie believes that if you’re passionate about a particular cause or goal, people will gravitate towards your mission. He shares with us that he has an extensive background in sales due to the time he spent as a salesman at Kirby Vacuum. 

With the knowledge acquired from their sales training, Reggie has been able to effectively communicate his mission with his customers and pass across his energy. 

Thoughts On Achieving Success 

Reggie has been in the fitness and wellness sector for about six years now, and he shares that his most significant achievement is reaching out and changing the lives of multiple individuals around the world. 

“The more people who believe in me and receive some sort of transformation from my teachings, the more I am inspired to do more,” Reggie says.

Here is something Reggie believes anyone just starting in life should know;

Don’t take life too seriously, make decisions, and make mistakes; you can course-correct. You should also understand if you’re still alive, you still have another opportunity to create a great future for yourself.”

Jake Brackenwagen Is Only 23, Yet He Already Has Over $10M In Real Estate

Published

on

While many 23 year olds are still not sure what it is that they want to do for a living, one individual in particular is smiling his way to the bank because of the years of work he’s already sacrificed and put into his career. His name is Jake Brackenwagen, and he already has over $10M worth of real estate under his name.

Jake is essentially playing the game “Monopoly” in real life. As the owner of Jake Buys Houses, he buys multi family investment properties on the cheap, and after stabilizing management, dropping expenses, rehabbing, and boosting cash flow, he either sells them for a profit or keeps them as an investment. He believes that his greatest accomplishment to date has been the trust that investors have given him in their family’s money, for the responsibility and pressure to perform for them is one of the greatest feelings in the world for him.

Jake has had numerous pivotal moments, but two in particular stick out to him. He’s never let his age hold him back, for his first deal was done while he was still in high school, and this helped him get over the fear that many people have about doing their first deal. His bias towards action has clearly paid off handsomely, for he has absolutely no fear when working with clients or investors today. Because of the mentality he has developed, he is able to move forward and continue progressing very quickly. As a matter of fact, the very first private money investor that he brought in has now done four separate deals with him. 

“My biggest piece of advice I’d give to anyone just starting in this industry is to first make sure to read and comprehend as many books as possible on investing, real estate and business. You should always use conservative numbers in your cash flow estimates, keep large reserves, and have patience for a good deal. Never get trigger happy,” Jake told me.

Jake apparently wasn’t inspired into this business, for he instead tried it just because he wanted to make lots of money and have financial freedom from passive income. Interestingly enough, this picked up for him very quickly after getting into this game, for he got those two much quicker than he had expected. 

When asked why he believes he has succeeded in a generation of people who seem to feel lost, he explained, “I spent ages 0-9 mostly in the back of a single engine airplane, traveling the country with my family. I’ve never had a game system, so I found my fun by getting out and doing things. Multiple near-death experiences made things seem easier in the normal world, for at age 6, I had my own boat with a mortar that I took daily fishing in one of Wisconsin’s most deadly rivers. I’ve even had a few earlier entrepreneurial attempts, such as selling pearls I found in the river at age 7, selling bait fish from ages 8-9, selling fishing lures on Ebay from ages 10-12, and even mowing lawns and tilling gardens.”

Now being hooked to playing his favorite game growing up, Monopoly, as his full time career, Jake is showing no signs of slowing down. As a matter of fact, his next moves are to continue with his current buying strategy until the next market downturn. At which point, his current assets will either be consolidated and sold, or refinanced. According to Jake, his investor network will be expanded massively during downturn, and he will be buying America for pennies on the dollar. The gap in value and price will allow for him and his investors to easily turn all their properties into energy neutral properties, or be sold and reinvested into their next investments. 

“I believe real estate is my favorite thing in the world simply because I’m really good at it. If I sucked, or if things hadn’t worked out the way they did, I’m sure I’d feel differently. But at the same time, if I did indeed do poorly in the beginning, I’d likely still be hooked to this business simply because I’ve always seen the potential,” Jake explained.

His ultimate goal is to give away all of his money, either soon before or immediately after his death. Whatever amount that ends up being, he hopes it makes a recognizable difference.
