How Patrick Corsino Started 4 Six-Figure Businesses By The Age of 23

Published

on

To the hundreds of thousands who draw inspiration from him, Patrick Corsino is a successful young entrepreneur who is proving you don’t need the traditional system. At just 23 years Patrick has started and grown four businesses, all of which have broken the six-figure mark. Now, the young serial entrepreneur is mentoring others to do the same. 

The Brazilian-born entrepreneur has lived in Michigan, Hong Kong, and Belgium. His nomadic lifestyle would later confirm the fact that travel helps develop important business characteristics, allows access to psychological benefits, and enhances the entrepreneur’s problem-solving abilities. 

Last year, Patrick moved to New York City from Virginia, where he had stayed for four years and gone to college. However, he did not like college. Not the institution itself, but the system through which it wanted to make him an electrical engineer. So Patrick lost complete interest in pursuing a career in engineering. At almost exactly the same time, he began googling, “how to build an online business.” What Patrick found out opened up the windows through which he escaped into freedom—financial freedom. 

Business #1: E-commerce 

The e-commerce industry seemed like a good place to try, so the budding entrepreneur gave it a go. After all, it is a $3.4 trillion industry with much to offer than is actually thought. Since he had no prior knowledge or training in any online business, Patrick looked for good courses. But he had no money to pay for them. The best way out was to work as a waiter to raise enough money for upkeep, paying for courses, and gathering some more resources he needed. That’s how he learned to blend e-commerce and affiliate marketing. Lots of platforms are making it super easy for e-commerce stores to sell directly through their social pages these days with built-in embedded links. This means that customers can click on specific products within a post and be led directly to a product page, making it far easier to boost impulse buys through online advertising. As Patrick had imagined, his job as a waiter quickly funded his new skills. He even managed to spare some cash to invest in his cryptocurrency trading business. 

Business #2: Affiliate Marketing

At the time, Patrick did not have products of his own, so he was affiliate marketing for other brands through social media. When he realized that it would take more than one business to fulfil his desire for freedom, Patrick built systems that allowed his startups to run without him around. For every business he had or planned to start, Patrick would create a team of freelancers and virtual assistants. He believes that outsourcing most of the tasks in a startup helps entrepreneurs relax and find time to focus on growing the company rather than running it. 

Business #3: Cryptocurrency Trading

Although he was busy building the blueprints for other businesses he had coming up, Patrick seemed particularly taken by trading crypto. He has a penchant for trading, and it has manifested in the kind of content, and the frequency with which he uploads on social media.  Patrick’s YouTube channel has over 26,000 subscribers and million-plus views on thousands of videos filled with crypto expert analysis and priceless insights. This was his second business and is unsurprisingly still doing great. The cryptocurrency market continues to be a popular asset for traders these days. More and more people are starting to trade crypto across the world, and there is more reason than ever to learn cryptocurrency trading in 2020.

Business #4: Information Products

Having gained experience starting and growing businesses, Patrick decided to take the next step. He says, “Now that I have started and scaled multiple online businesses, I am focusing on showing people

they do not always need the traditional route in order to succeed.” Patrick’s long term vision is to reform the education system and leave a legacy. By leveraging such managerial strategies as coordination and delegation, Patrick Corsino has gone beyond commonly set barriers and proven them to be overrated but most of all, conquerable.

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.
