Sadly, not everyone gets to achieve their dreams and aspirations. Often, it’s a case of a lack of willpower to make this happen, but there are times when the absence of the needed support could be the problem.
Michael Laurens belongs in the small category of achievers.
With the strong desire to not join the 9-5 bandwagon, Michael is passionate about etching his name in the sands of time. And his story reflects just how far he has come.
Like many ordinary people, Michael gained entry into college, but due to financial constraints, he almost dropped out of college in his final year. In fact, he was lucky to have learned skills like coding which helped him financially, though he had to supplement this with pizza delivery at some point.
After graduation, he went on to acquire more knowledge centered on digital marketing. And he achieved this feat without any form of mentorship or coaching programs as he barely survived during this period.
In his darkest days – the months following his graduation from college – Michael was constrained to seek shelter with a friend while ensuring the learning process doesn’t stop. It was during this phase that Michael understood just how instrumental social media could become towards his financial growth.
On realizing just how massive social media marketing could be, Michael got to work building a brand focused on helping entrepreneurs gain visibility in a virtual space known for its survival of the fittest dynamics.
By putting all his acquired knowledge to the task, Michael Laurens became a household name on the virtual streets of social media. Every enterprise, conscious of the importance of social media marketing, wanted to work with him.
With the magnificent feat recorded in his social media marketing rounds, Michael was approached by a blockchain consultancy startup to handle their digital marketing department. And he handled it to perfection by raising millions of dollars in funds for numerous blockchain projects. It didn’t take long before Michael had the department bustling with life.
Having conquered the social media marketing niche, Michael decided to do something which many can only dream of doing – quit when the ovation is loudest.
Having seen how out of reach most coaching programs can be and with this burning passion to help entrepreneurs, the social media guru opted to assist as many as possible for almost nothing by creating the Michael Laurens Enterprises. For Michael, success is about reaching a position where you could (and do) help transform the lives of people.
While it’s not easy making the switch from social media marketing to tutoring entrepreneurs, Michael believes in breaking bounds and helping people along the way.
Currently, the social media expert is working on helping more entrepreneurs not only put a foot in the door but enter into the world of opportunities awaiting them this year. He remains ever grateful to his parents who imbibed in him the need to persevere regardless of the challenges along the road while ensuring that positivity reflects on those around him.
Brimming with confidence, Michael says:
“When you take risks, you learn that there will be times when you succeed, and there will be times when you fail, and both are just as important. Chasing success is a state of mind. When fear and hardships get the best of you, the key is to know what your core driver is, to visualize the rest of your life and your inability to achieve that desired outcome if you are unable to pick yourself back up and move forward.”
