“Your Network is Your Net Worth” With Gaige Keep – Travel blogger, Online agency founder, and SEO expert




Former United States Marine infantry veteran and founder of “GaugeMedia”, Gaige Keep is a Travel Blogger, Digital Marketing Strategist and serial entrepreneur. At 19 years old, Gaige joined the Marines and got the chance to travel the world and serve his country. Keep ventured to South- East Asia at the age of 18 after finishing High School, instead of going straight into college. He had the chance to travel the world and learn about many different cultures, which was a driving force of his attraction to the Marines. After four years of service, Gaige was honorably discharged from the Marines with the title of Sergeant and began to strategize about what was next in his career and his life. Through a combination of his experience from his service and his love for travel and networking, he built a business that supported himself and his family and worked around the life he wanted to create. He is now on his way to becoming one of the most successful entrepreneurs in his space, and his clients are all 7-8 figure business owners. Gaige encourages his audience to take risks, and quotes “Never let society decide your future for you. If you have a passion, pursue it and learn how to monetize it.” He, himself is a huge traveling enthusiast and desires to use his social media platform and his business to fuel the life of adventure and experience that he so desires for his family.

After leaving the marines, Keep started his own digital marketing agency GaugeMedia, through which he is providing a variety of services like social media growth, online SEO optimization, web development and public relations services.

In an interview with Forbes magazine he quoted, “Your network is your net worth.” By this, he meant that all of the money he is making now, is a by-product of the hard work he put in and the network he has built. He is determined to be the best in his industry and to do that, he knows the connections he makes, and the determination he has, is what will carry him there. Keep also said, “the military taught me one thing…I need to be my own boss,” and this motivated him to start his own agency rather than finding a job working for someone else.

Keep is now a successful entrepreneur and is a travel blogger along with his wife, Mikayla, who is also successful.

Keep is a true inspiration for all people wanting to break the mold of the “normal” life and desiring to do something different- something that fuels their passions.
