Meet Sam Jacobs – The Young Prodigy and Creator of a multi-million-dollar Fortune
It is fair to say that there hasn’t been a better time than the present to start an online business. E-commerce, blogs, services – irrespective of the niche, it is more than possible to go about creating a multi-million dollar empire with some dedication, hard work, and ingenuity. Meet Sam Jacobs – the 18-year-old American prodigy who has successfully cracked the code behind e-commerce marketing and made more than millions of dollars in the process.
Sam got his start back in his early school days on a much smaller scale when he was just selling candy bars. Realizing his potential as he grew older, he channeled his entrepreneurial spirit by taking the leap at the age of 16 and starting a Shopify dropshipping business. For the first few months, as Sam recalls, he had to put in a lot of effort and grind relentlessly to take his dropshipping venture off the ground. For the first few months into his business, he hardly saw any success, but his determination to keep going in the face of zero results eventually led him to prominence. During the period when he turned 18, Sam’s sales catapulted to over a million dollar, and since then, he hasn’t looked back.
Besides successfully running his own e-commerce business, Sam founded two other companies where he continues to serve as the CEO. With that, he has also been mentoring and educating thousands of others who are interested in becoming entrepreneurs and exploring the scope of business in the e-commerce space. Through his website and an Instagram page, he teaches and inspires his followers to explore the path of entrepreneurship.
Owing to his personal background, Sam realized the importance of working hard at a very young age. Today, he credits all his success to his family and friends who showed faith in him. For his exceptional work, he has been featured in some of the leading publications across the world, and in all of them, he has spoken about having the right mindset and the will to put in efforts.
He advises the next wave of entrepreneurs to find the ‘WHY’ factor and the reason that drives them to wake up every morning. “Once you have identified this WHY in life, the next step is to break it down into small goals and work towards achieving them,” says Sam.
Just like any other entrepreneur, Sam too has faced his fair share of difficulties in reaching the pinnacle. However, it was his perseverance that brought him results. Sam’s ingenuity to achieve so much helped him in getting endorsed by the likes of Tai Lopez and Grant Cardone among other renowned personalities. Besides, he frequently flies across the United States to share his entrepreneurial experience and speak on the art of making money online.
The story of Sam Jacobs sets an example that the path to discover the sweet spot of success is not an easy one, but the ones who sail through the rocky waters, survive in the long run.
