I wish I had help.
It was 2012 when I first explored Facebook advertising - out of desperation because my successful affiliate marketing business died over night (Zero traffic thanks to Google's SEO changes).
So I hustled trying to learn Facebook ads whilst losing money and almost giving up - until in 2014 I somehow made it all work.
I took an Ecommerce business from $800k in annual revenue to $26.5M in 18 months. I know, it sounds pretty unbeliable but it is true. You can google my name and "Lost My Name" (the company I scaled up) to see some of the proof.
Since then I decided to help other businesses succeed with Facebook ads too with over $100M in revenue generated for clients - whilst also starting my own dropshipping sites.
After starting my agency, and falling out of love with dropshipping (poor quality products and delivery delays) I built a system for my agency which a good friend of mine suggested I should sell as training for others.
"Who'd want to learn from me?" I said. Well, 1000's of students later it seems the world did need 'another' Facebook ads course after all.
Late 2018 I almost decided to step away from teaching because although we had success, I prefer teaching in-person (I still do).
It's hard to know if you're making a difference when people log in to a platform and you have no interaction.
Then I met Jeff. He said "if it wasn't for your training, my Ecommerce business would have failed and I'd have been forced to go get a job". Wow. That changed everything for me.
So I went all in on combining the work we do with our advertising agency and our own Ecommerce store, with teaching others. I love it and am grateful to be able to share knowledge and experience with others to help them achieve successes too.
