“Go where you’re not comfortable.” Steven van der Peijl

Today listeners, we are so incredibly happy to announce that we are recording podcast 100 of our 100 podcasts with 100 entrepreneurs that have earned $100,000+ in their annual revenue.  It has been quite the hustle, but totally worth it. We hope you guys are enjoying the content. For those of you that don’t know, our previous 99 episodes have featured entrepreneurs with $100,000 and more in annual revenue. During this time, we have picked their brains and learned the science of what it takes to build 6 & 7-figure businesses.  Now, this is episode #100 but we aren’t finished.  Starting next week, we will start to interview another 100 entrepreneurs, but specifically, 100 entrepreneurs that have built 7-figure location independent businesses. These are the people that have complete freedom, traveling where they want, when they want, and how they want. They all have at least $1,000,000 in annual revenue in their business and many of them have large remote team members and others have none at all. It is going to be an exciting run of interviews and if you want to build a 7-figure location independent business, you guys will have 100 people that have done it, right here on The Entrepreneur House podcast. 

Joining us today is one of my best pals, super hacker, SaaS developer, SIM unlocker, remote team developer, and super entrepreneur Steven van der Peijl.  Steven built a Samsung SIM unlocking service and grew it to the largest in the world. He has been an entrepreneur since he was fourteen years old and is joining us on the show today to talk about his recent webinar launch that generated $190,000 in six days. We get the opportunity to pick his brain about how he and his partners put this together.  We will also chat a little about The Entrepreneur House as Steven has attended more of our events than anyone else staying about five months in total with us, and even serving as an advisor at the last event in Thailand.

Ep.235 ~ Your Friends May Suck and You Don’t Even Know It ~ Taylor Pearson

June 23, 2017

“Always leave the door open, but never push someone through.” Taylor Pearson

Are the people you are surrounding yourself with, the people you should be surrounding yourself with?  You might have some friends, that really don’t deserve your friendship.

Today on the show, we welcome Taylor Pearson. Taylor is the author of the #1 Business Best-Seller ‘The End of Jobs’ a book that talks about what many location entrepreneurs can relate to, redefining life, mixed with travel and remote work.  Our world is changing rapidly, and so is business and the way we see life.  A forty-year career with one company is pretty much dead, and the idea of a regular nine-to-five job is decaying as well.

Taylor and I jump into the specifics of ‘The End of Jobs’ and why he decided to write it. We then accidentally jump into a conversation about analyzing friends. Taylor and I discuss how we measure our friends, and the importance if doing it.  If you are curious if you are really surrounding yourself with the right people, you might want to listen to this episode.

Ep.227 ~ A 19 Year Old Makes $200,000 in 3 Weeks on Social Media ~ Jason Wong

June 12, 2017

“The things that people are generally insecure about go out the window once you’re on the internet.” Jason Wong

Could you imagine being 19 and making $200,000 in 3 weeks from social media? That is exactly what Jason Wong did. Jason is not your typical 19-year old. He started exploring ways to make money online at the age of twelve. When the lesser known social media platform Tumblr was released, Jason fell in love with the idea of it and over a few years gained 2.1 million followers. 

As a fun project, Jason decided to create ‘The Meme Bible’.  He then released it to his Tumblr following and three weeks later, he was sitting with $200,000.  That is a day he will never forget, but the many that might see this as a lucky win for this young man might be surprised. Jason is a very intelligent entrepreneur and connector and knows how to work the social media world.

“For Tumblr, it’s really a way to express your inner-self. For Instagram, it is really a way to express your outer-self.” Jason Wong

Ep.222 ~ The Facebook Ad Ninja ~ Vincent Nguyen

June 5, 2017

Hi listeners, today Vincent Nguyen the founder of Growth Ninja joins our show. Growth Ninja is a company that brings your business leads and sales from Facebook ads. The difference between Growth Ninja and every other Facebook ad company is that they are paid based on performance. So if they don’t deliver results, they don’t get paid.

On the show today we have a great conversation with Vincent. What I specifically enjoyed about him is that he is a young entrepreneur just starting out with an incredibly mature mindset. I can respect any entrepreneur that wants to be paid based on their own performance. Vincent it doing just that, and doing it very well.

Further along in the show, Vincent and I discuss the process of getting comfortable being paid well by our clients, quitting your job to start a business and we also touch on how he prefers to work solo over having employees.
