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.

Courage the hallmark of Raja Syn’s career

Published

on

Raja Syn is a strong, courageous woman, and that has helped her launch what is certain to be an interesting career in the entertainment industry.

The Jamaican-born beauty had been told for years that she would be an excellent model given her hard-won curves and naturally-gorgeous genetics.

“Everyone always said I should model, but getting signed with an agency seemed impossible to me,” she said.

But still, that didn’t mean there wasn’t a place for Raja to make a name for herself.

After she read the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” which inspired her to seek out her own wealth – she knew exactly where she could find it.

“I turned to Instagram to build my brand. It has been the best thing I’ve ever did since,” she added.

Path charted early

Raja was 17 (she graduated from high school a year early) when she moved to California after a semester of college didn’t spark her interest as much as she’d hoped.

“I realized school wasn’t my calling,” said Raja, who has planned to major in foreign language with an emphasis in Chinese.

Instead, she decided the entertainment industry was where she would make a name for herself.

“’Rich Dad Poor Dad’ changed my whole idea of life,” Raja said. “In that same month I took influencing seriously. Instagram was where I started. From a year of having my Instagram my account reached 300,000 followers. I’ve gained lots of support from other influencers and celebrities as well.”

She has done it all from Atlanta, a bustling entertainment city that better suits her as well as her brand.

“I moved to Atlanta for a fresh start after realizing Atlanta is the best place to start a career in the entertainment industry as a black girl,” she said. (Raja joins a wealth of other celebs that have made the southern city their home.)

Bigger, better dreams

And while her Instagram and other influencer accounts are thriving, Raja continues to consider other opportunities in the industry to keep things fresh.

“I currently do paid photo shoots, music videos, Instagram influencing, Onlyfans, and crypto trading,” she said. “I aspire to be a tv personality with my own show. I plan on writing my own book soon. I can sing, too, but I’m not really focused on a music career. It might happen. Right now, I’m just moving wherever the universe takes me.”

The loyal fan base she’s amassed so far – luring them in with sexy photos and steamy video shoots – will absolutely be along for the ride.
