From Prison to Promised Land with Zachary J Babcock

Published

on

What’s your backstory? 

I went to prison by the time I was 19 and I did 4 years on a 7 year sentence. There were many adverse moments that played a key role in strengthening my character. I got out for about 2 years. I got promoted at a sales job on my 3rd day, then I got fired 2 days later for being a convicted felon.

Instead of searching for other opportunities, I became a raging alcoholic. I went back to prison, just 20 days before my twin sons were born. That was the worst pain I’ve ever felt. I always wanted to be the dad I didn’t have, and now I blew it. It was the best thing that could have ever happened to me because I made a decision right there that I was going to do my time and get out to become a responsible father, and be happy and successful. I didn’t know what happy and successful looked like at that point in my life and I didn’t know how I was going to do it, but I had powerful reasons why I had to figure it out.

I came home 8 months later and started grinding. I couldn’t find a job anywhere. I did network marketing for 2 years before I completely lost my passion for it. I didn’t know what it was when I started, so you couldn’t even scare me off with the word “pyramid scheme”. I created almost $2k a month residual income within my first 6 months. However, I lost my passion completely and left network marketing in 2017.

I struggled financially all of 2017 and a lot in 2018. I was trying to be a “life coach”. My messaging was horrible and I wasn’t solving a specific problem for a specific person. I was all over the place, and as a result, I didn’t make a single penny or help a single person as a coach.

I tried to collaborate with other entrepreneurs all the time, but nobody took me seriously. I was just some ex-convict turned entrepreneur afterthought that nobody gave the time of day to. Out of this frustration and pain of no one taking me seriously, I launched the Underdog Empowerment podcast and became a top 200 rated podcaster on iTunes in my first week. The next week I had Billy Gene Is Marketing on my show. It’s crazy because the week prior no one wanted to collaborate, than in a few days I started interviewing celebrities and everyone wanted to talk then.

Since then I’ve interviewed countless of celebrities, industry leaders, and power players on my show, built powerful relationships with a lot of these power players, I’ve spoke at the biggest and coolest events, made a bunch of money, and have helped a bunch of people do the same thing. I help entrepreneurs launch, grow, and monetize top rated podcasts on iTunes, in 5 weeks or less, guaranteed, while freeing up your time and sanity with our podcast production agency.

From over 5 years in prison to rubbing elbows with multi-millionaires every day and generating over $20k+ months as an entrepreneur, I truly get grossed out when people make excuses.

 

What made you decide to choose this career path? 

Because my podcast blew up and I love everything about podcasting. I married my skills with my passion.

Underdog Empowerment with Zachary J Babcock

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?

I left network marketing to be a ‘life coach’. I was just like most of the other life coaches out there; unskilled, and horrible at marketing. I would say things like, “I can help you achieve your goals.” Who would pay someone money for that? Get specific on who you serve and a specific problem you solve for them. And you better make sure you can solve that problem.

 

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

The fact that I did over 5 years in prison and now my brand is skyrocketing. The epic climb from the bottom. And most importantly, we serve the underdogs. The ones who have grandiose visions, all the odds stacked against them, everyone counting them out (even laughing at them), regardless of their current resources. But they’re committed to leveling up and winning to get the respect that they deserve. You can’t beat the underdog who’s all in.

 

What’s a quote that you live by? 

Do the fucking work.

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.

Published

Stephen Campolo is not your average fitness trainer. For one, he guarantees results, thanks to all the years of experience and knowledge within the diet, nutrition and health industry. You can be sure to get your dream physique through proven sciences and facts.

Here’s how Stephen Campolo is helping thousands achieve a Hollywood body in just 12 weeks.

The Shift from Corporate to Fitness Trainer

Stephen may have the body of a Greek god, but he wasn’t always like that. It didn’t bother him though, as he sought out a plan to climb out of his dilemma and build the body he wanted. In fact, the shift was largely due to his desire to become better and strive for greatness.

He began studying everything he could about body change, e.g., weight training, nutrition, and human anatomy, then worked as a cleaning boy at a Gold’s Gym so he could acquire as much information as possible about fitness. Stephen’s success largely stemmed from his action steps towards getting a better image and health, which ultimately changed his direction to becoming a fitness author and online entrepreneur.

Trial and Error

Stephen started working on what he knew in order to try and build the best physique. During this time, he already had a good understanding of how he could help others melt fat off their bodies and get into shape. He was working with CEOs and global movers in terms of weight loss and sculpting their muscles.

His love of helping others propelled him to greater heights. Soon, referrals from clients started seeing him and asking how they could get into shape quickly and easily. Stephen also began sharing his thoughts and beliefs on his social media page, which soon blossomed into a following.

The Rise to Entrepreneurship

Stephen isn’t like other fitness coaches who focus on making money. He genuinely wants to help others like him overcome physical challenges and be in their best shape. His passion as a personal trainer, nutrition coach, and weight loss expert grew, and people sent him messages to see if he had a book or program to sell. The seed formed, and Stephen began compiling his ideas and putting them on paper.

The momentum continued, and soon Stephen launched his very first fat loss program. The results were as expected- Stephen rose to become an entrepreneur and soon made enough money to do online fitness coaching full time.

His reach and audience grew to others who wanted to be like him all over the globe. Stephen’s client transformations were remarkable and unlike any other programs the world has ever seen. A session with him and you’ll understand how you can build muscle and burn fat faster than you think is possible.

The bulk of Stephen Campolo’s program revolves around tried-and-true methods coming from the author himself. In his quest to become fit he also learned a lot about dieting, nutrition, and knowledge on how the body works. Then, his intense desire to help others led him to the successful position he’s enjoying today.
