Tell us your name and a little about yourself.
My name is Stephen Hauser, I am 18-year old Funnel Hacker/Marketing Agency owner, and I am a strong believer that my story could impact several people and inspire them to take a leap of risk. I was kicked out of school my sophomore year and I thought everything was over. I thought I’d never get a good job and will just be a failure. Around this time I came across Social media marketing…
So after high school, I was able to find a mentor and moved to the middle of nowhere in Hanover, PA, I worked for his marketing agency in a 9-5 environment, but I was learning so much. A huge thing they stressed was automation, I mean a 7 figure company and the owners were rarely there. Through what I learned and the sacrifice of missing out on college parties, social life, I was able to build a 6 figure agency in just a couple months and am able to travel, buy my first home at 18, and live my life on my own terms now.
What exactly does your company do?
My marketing agency specializes in Facebook Ads, marketing strategy, Sales Funnels creation, product launches, and scaling current business.
What were the biggest challenges you have faced and how did you overcome them?
My biggest challenges were defiantly fighting with the thought that I was missing out on college or the party experience, and the main thing that helped me with that was coming to the realization that everyone is in different parts of their life and everyone is in different chapters trying to achieve different things. I wanted to create a 6-7 figure income online while some people wanted to work in an office environment Mon-Friday.
Another constant challenge, in the beginning, was not staying focused and getting unmotivated. I learned as long as I constantly remind myself what I need to do to get to where I want to be, it’ll keep me in the right headspace.
What piece of advice do you wish someone had given you at the start of your career?
Never look back, stay in your own lane, and don’t get too excited over a POTENTIAL Deal, and if that deal falls through, don’t stress it and keep moving forward. Oh and learn from your mistakes
Who are your biggest influences and people you admire and why?
My biggest influence has to be Tai Lopez and my dad. Tai got me into what I’m doing now with his here in my garage video, and how he goes about his branding, and building his empire.
I also have to mention my dad, because of what he was able to accomplish in his life and how he consistently teaches me work ethic.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are?
Defiantly, wanted to mention Kasra Moradi, Dutch Heatherly, and Jack Richards. After my time in middle of nowhere we all took a trip to California and Jack and Kasra were already doing e-commerce and have been to California before, but they pushed me to get outside of my comfort zone, and we ended up booking the craziest mansions, threw the craziest parties, and it truly did change my perspective to not stress money as much as people do.
What do you see as your greatest success in life?
I think how far I’ve come, me buying my first Camaro, being able to fly all over the world to the craziest places with people I love around me, and buying my first home at 18.
