We have all heard the stories about young entrepreneurs making it big by creating apps and software programs, but one man seems to embody what being a successful entrepreneur is truly about.

He’s Vince van Meer, 23, who has been able to make millions by building and selling his apps and working as an e-commerce expert. His specialty is branding and social media management for big and small influencers, entrepreneurs, and organizations, depending on their specific markets, and aiding in building their e-commerce platform, marketing needs, and product development.

“I’m currently making millions running e-commerce and doing various things in social media marketing,” he said. “I made my first million when I was 20 years old. I worked and still work a lot on apps that other companies white label.”

Born in the Netherlands in July 1995, van Meer attended Grafisch Lyceum in Rotterdam, where he studied Interactive Design focusing on building apps, animations, games, websites and graphic design during his first year. He said he learned plenty, and by the second year, he turned his interests toward audio-visual design specialization and graduated in 2015. While he didn’t make a lot of money right away, he has certainly done so these days.

He recalled when he first started out by hosting a YouTube channel, he garnered hundreds of thousands of views and was making about $2-3K per month as a 15-year-old. He even worked at McDonald’s, although he was already making money with his English YouTube channel on gaming. A year later, he decided to leave and began filming festivals and events for $5 per hour, all while doing YouTube on the side. By his second year of college, he quit YouTube and kicked off his career in social media marketing.

Things weren’t always easy for him. However, after finishing school, he sold all his personal items, borrowed $300 from his grandfather, and got his own office. With no clients, no revenue stream, and no website, he was able to make a $900 profit doing internet marketing, all within a month.  The second month he made $2,000, and after a few months, he was doing about $10,000 per month.

Tasting freedom

One of the main reasons van Meer decided to do it alone is because of the freedom it brings. Van Meer said he wanted to work from wherever he wanted, as he loves traveling. Plus, he always liked being in business and working on his own projects, in his own timeframe.  And because his routines and work schedules are a bit different than most 9 to 5 jobs, he often works nights, and sometimes from an airplane. “It’s all about flexibility and freedom,” he said.

As for tips on being successful, he said, “Stay focused. Don’t overwork yourself. There are times where I sleep only 4 hours a night, but that’s because I really don’t want to be doing anything else. Those are times where I am super motivated and inspired. But when I feel the opposite, I take this time to get rest and live healthily. Don’t force it, or you’ll burn out.”

The idea of Bigtime Daily landed this engineer cum journalist from a multi-national company to the digital avenue. Matthew brought life to this idea and rendered all that was necessary to create an interactive and attractive platform for the readers. Apart from managing the platform, he also contributes his expertise in business niche.
