It’s Your Life, Why Are You Not In Charge Of It? The Inside Story of How Junior Anthony Went from Zero to 7 Figures.

Many people share the desire to change their lives and work from home in the online world, but few ever get there on their own. Junior Anthony – business coach, entrepreneur, and digital marketer – knows from personal experience how to nurture that seed of desire that lurks within.

His online education platform LiveSotori has not only enabled him to grow wealthy and fulfilled, but it also facilitated hundreds of ordinary people to build successful online businesses and enjoy generating income while working from home.

Junior knows of what he speaks, having made his way from being homeless and living in a rented car to growing an in-demand digital marketing dream into a multi-million-dollar business.

From Poverty To Epiphany

Junior was raised by his grandparents in Brooklyn, New York, with his father in jail and an absent mom who later kidnapped him and took him abroad for five years. Then another shock arrived when his father was released from prison and entered his life. Family turmoil like this would be enough to shatter any child but for Junior Anthony, it was the beginning of a rags-to-riches journey that swings from poverty to epiphany, laptop lifestyle to seven-figure business success.

By the time he was 21-years-old, Junior was living as a squatter in an abandoned home in Queens, New York with friends. After floating between New York and Florida, he decided to get his TLC license and rented a car from Uber while writing music, performing, and doing shows. One day his rented car’s windshield was trashed to the tune of $2,000. Deeply in debt, he worked driving only at night hoping that the damaged windshield would not be noticed.

“I had to make money to pay my debts and I tried everything you could do on a phone since I didn’t have a laptop. I had nothing. I tried bitcoin and downloaded apps and other gimmicks. Nothing worked,” he said.

As sleep begets sleep, disaster begets the same and Junior fell off his skateboard and broke his ankle making driving impossible. He waited three days to visit the hospital.

“I couldn’t drive and a dude I knew offered me $20 every two weeks to receive drugs. I was a breath away from breaking point. I knew this was not the life I wanted or had planned for. I need to make massive changes,” he said.

After his ankle healed he took a job working on a construction site, bought a laptop, and tuned into every webinar that he thought would get rid of the negativity that was crowding his world.

A Spiritual Cleansing

“My life seemed to be populated with bad actors who brought nothing but misery. I needed a serious spiritual cleansing and reset. I knew I wanted to make money online and I spent endless hours researching how to change direction to get there,” he said.

He returned to Trinidad for six months where he bathed in a river, ate from trees, and gained the ‘mental equilibrium’ required to learn about himself, online marketing, social media, and advertising. He became a voracious consumer of online courses, webinars, guides, and endless reading content about digital marketing.

He then landed in Miami with $30 in his pocket and started searching for clients. When he was down to his last dollar, he pounded the pavement with one aim; to sign a client. His last call resulted in a catch where a CrossFit business agreed to pay $300 upfront and $200 on delivery for his marketing services.

Shortly after signing his first serious client, Junior watched a webinar by consciousness coach Vishen Lakhiani. It triggered an epiphany that wrenched his self-limiting mindset and turned it into one of abundance and unlimited self-faith.

“From this, I believed that clients would pay me $1,500. How could they believe in me when I didn’t believe in myself? This amazing shift was a game-changer. I secured my first $1,500 client. It was life-defining and I immediately set my intention to develop meaningful relationships and live a better life,” he said.

Scaling Up The Business

Junior scaled his digital marketing business, started looking after himself better, and grew the business to include high end-clients.

Processed with Lensa with Magic Correction

While he was mentoring his friend in affiliate marketing, other requests for mentorship were landing rapidly. One person even showed him their bank statement that had a balance of 13 cents.

“While I was mentoring these people, I realized that some were succeeding with campaigns that were converting, while others were not taking action. I was done helping out for free. People don’t value free and I felt like I was wasting my time,” Junior added.

Junior realized it was time to distill his lifetime of experience, tools, and philosophies into a professional program and he created www.livesotori.com

One of his most influential programs is a two-day live workshop that takes students on a journey that includes a step-by-step guide to starting an online business and working from home, landing page optimization, and his client attraction formula.

Resilience Has Its Own Rewards

LiveSotori’s community is made up of hundreds of supportive entrepreneurs who regularly make five-figure incomes. Dozens of his ‘family’ have quit their dead-end jobs and now make money online from home. Earning $1000 in a single day became the regular norm for most people in his community.

“While many entrepreneurs like to operate solo, we function as a family and pride ourselves on working together. We also have a no BS and ‘No Excuses’ approach. I work with integrity and do not sugarcoat anything. As the founder of LiveSotori, I am there to offer support and training,” he said.

While Junior knows that he was helped by his failures, he believes profoundly in the power of a person’s ability to create their own story.

“Assuming control of your life and taking it in the direction that you desire is an important part of every life. Manage your narrative and rule it. If you fall, you can still write yourself an awesome comeback story. Resilience has its rewards, particularly if you are coming from rock bottom.”

Michelle has been a part of the journey ever since Bigtime Daily started. As a strong learner and passionate writer, she contributes her editing skills for the news agency. She also jots down intellectual pieces from categories such as science and health.

Every author has a different story, but they have one thing in common – they all overcome great obstacles and hardships. Plenty of famous writers had impairments yet found enormous success in their lives. It goes without saying that the best art comes out of the worst adversities. When physical and mental activity is hindered by sickness, creative activity thrives. Many renowned authors, writers, and poets bear witness to this decision. One such example is Doulas Eugene Noll. The author of De-Escalate: How to Calm an Angry Person in 90 Seconds or Less was born with multiple severe impairments. 

His calling is to serve humankind, and he does so on numerous levels. He is a best-selling author, educator, and trainer. He is an accomplished mediator. Noll’s job takes him from international work to assisting people in resolving highly vexing interpersonal and ideological problems. 

Noll has penned four books, and his latest book De-Escalate: How to Calm an Angry Person in 90 Seconds or Less, was a best-seller on amazon and was published in four different languages. It also won the Book Excellence Award in 2017. The book teaches the readers how to calm an angry or upset person of any age while remaining centered and calm. In addition, Noll, in his book, has also highlighted ways to calm oneself down swiftly and efficiently. Noll is a lawyer turned peacemaker born near-blind and with club feet. He is the creator of several online courses that teach his innovative de-escalation skills.

It was in the year 2000 that he realized that the courtroom was not where he belonged. As a result, he embarked on a journey as a peacemaker and mediator after leaving a successful trial practice. Noll has stressed in his book what he has implemented in real life. He has taught in some of California’s most violent men’s and women’s prisons with substantial outcomes. Noll held workshops for groups who wished to bring something positive into their communities. 

He named that workshop after his book as De-escalation training workshops, where participants learned how to calm an angry person in 90 seconds or less. The training workshop was a perfect way for churches and faith communities to express one’s religious and spiritual beliefs in a practice that brings peace under challenging situations. Throughout ten weeks, the participants begin to master the skills and change their way of looking at the world through the lens of positivity. 

In addition to De-Escalate, Noll has published three other books named Peacemaking: practicing at the intersection of law and human conflict, Sex, politics, & religion at the office: the new competitive advantage, and Elusive peace: how modern diplomatic strategies could better resolve world conflicts. Each book brought an impact of its own and earned recognition. 

His journey as a lawyer

In 1977, Noll began his legal career as a clerk for the Honorable George Hopper before being admitted to the California Bar in December of the same year. As an associate, he joined Fullerton, Lang, Richert & Patch, a Fresno law firm located in Fullerton, in 1978. He tried his first legal case in 1978 and went on to practice law as a civil trial lawyer for the next 22 years, working on over 75 trials.

Douglas Noll contributed to the legal profession by assisting students in achieving success via education and teaching. Throughout his career, he worked as an instructor in various positions at numerous institutes. Noll was a member of the American Institute of Mediation’s core faculty and the Straus Institute’s Professional Skills Development program’s summer faculty.

In a nutshell, Noll’s entire life has seen him reinvent himself taking different routes but with the same vision in mind: To bring peace to the communities. He illustrates that being born with impairments is not our choice, but not allowing them on the way to the top is entirely our choice. 

His dedication to disclosing the world through a lens of positivity led him to create Prison in Peace, where he transforms murderers into peacemakers. He stresses that the power of mediation cannot be overlooked. Noll is now an award-winning author, teacher, trainer, and skilled mediator.
