2020 was supposed to be the year to start a business. And yet, uncertainty and fear gripped thousands of Americans as we entered the worst recession in history. To add to the damage, the Federal Reserve chief said that millions of people won’t return to work because of the economic impact of COVID-19. If you’re one of those people, or even if you’re employed but looking to make a change, it may be time to put the future in your hands.
Take Dan Fleyshman, a serial entrepreneur, social media mogul, and the youngest founder of a publicly-traded company. He is an angel investor for more than 31 companies and knows first-hand about the challenges of starting a business. He juggled 3 jobs growing up to help support his family of 4, and that mindset of always working hard led him to be successful today. For Dan, now a 9-figure millionaire, his success came down to one thing: you have to be relentless.
It can be scary and there are so many skills you need to learn along the way, so Dan teamed up with email marketing expert Joel Marion and real estate investor Cody Sperber, to create 100 Million Academy, an online learning platform for entrepreneurs.
The founders realized the state of learning for entrepreneurs was lacking – you either go to college which can take a lot of time, or you find a business coach online and hope they can provide value. According to a new report, due to COVID, the digital education market is now forecasted to grow from $8.4 billion in 2020 to $33.2 billion by 2025, and 100 Million Academy is right on the mark.
100 Million Academy is not just an online platform, it’s a community to get aspiring entrepreneurs plugged into something larger than themselves. Members get access to more than 100 hours of content that focus on tangible skills to start and scale a business. The 20+ verticals include digital marketing, e-commerce, real estate investing, copywriting, branding, email marketing, leadership, sales and funnels, and more. Some call it “the Netflix of entrepreneurs.”
Another challenge that many face when it comes to online learning is who you learn from. These days, it’s easy for anyone to call themselves an expert, but with 100 Million Academy, only the best in the industry are invited to become instructors. Dan, Joel and Cody are well-connected in their circles – a mix of entrepreneurs, celebrities, and investors -and leveraged their network to curate 40+ core instructors. Among them include the “Wolf of Wall Street” Jordan Belfort, CNBC’s “The Profit” Marcus Lemonis, #1 digital marketer Neil Patel, sports marketing legend David Meltzer, and more. All have weathered challenging times to prove their ROI, either having earned $100 million, spent $100 million or generated 100 million impressions.
For the founders, it’s their chance to impact the economy, following the saying “if you teach a man to fish…” Once entrepreneurs start and scale their business, they will hire others which will help their families to invest in the local economy. To be an entrepreneur, you need three things to succeed: income-generating skills, high-level connections, and a willingness to take action. And the best place to learn is by following in the footsteps of others.
To sign up for 100 Million Academy, it’s $100 per month, with no long-term contract so membership can be canceled anytime. Visit the website for more details.
