I had the pleasure to interview Tucker Leary from Boston! He owns a 5 million follower network of pages on Instagram, manages rap artists social media, and is most known for “making people famous.” Here’s how it went:
Hey Tucker! Can you give us your background story?
Tucker: I always thought that you can make money doing something you love, so I started an Instagram page of football highlights at 11 years old, and it’s brought me to here (16)
Interesting. What have been your accomplishments so far?
I grew one of my accounts 409,000 real active followers in 5 days
I also grew @thutmose Instagram and rap carrier to where it is now.
I’ve also helped many start an Instagram Career
I’ve done over $40k in a month drop shipping.
What differentiates you from everyone else in your field?
Tucker: I see where people’s weak spots are and take advantage, for example I use physiological methods like certain color ways on my posts, certain amount of words, certain hidden images etc. When I capitalize on these, it disadvantages others in my field and makes me one of the top dogs.
What would you say to someone jumping into entrepreneurship?
Tucker: My one piece of advice to someone would be nothing in this world that is worth working for happens overnight! I started Instagram when I was 11 years old, and it’s taken 5 years for me to build my 5mil network, and now that I’m here I look back and see all the times I almost quit, but just kept grinding.
What where’s biggest lessons you learned?
Tucker: To keep my head down and stay in my own lane, don’t let others opinions differ how you do you, take risks.
Personal definition of success?
Tucker: My definition of success would be able to live freely with no money struggles, and the same thing for my mom.
What is one thing you wished you knew when you started?
Tucker: I wish I knew that the internet isn’t always good to you. For example when I started I started Instagram 3 days after my birthday so I had an amazon gift card, an iTunes gift card and some Starbucks gift cards. I used those instead of PayPal to buy shoutouts and I got scammed on every deal.
Why do you think being candid about both success and failure?
Tucker: I believe it’s important because if you never have a set back or failure you’ll never learn that lesson and you will never know what would have happened.
What’s that best way for people to reach out to you?
The best way for someone to reach me is by Instagram dm, my Instagram is @Tuckerrs
