Story

Before I dive into my story and bio I want to point out the most important aspect when starting any business or goal you have for the future.

This key aspect is your “WHY”

Your “WHY” is what motivates you to reach whatever you want in life.

What will keep you moving even in the hardest and most difficult times you face. I don't know how many times you've seen the "gurus" on Youtube tell you that building a profitable and consistent business online is very easy. But the honest truth is that it's not as easy as it seems.

You need to have your "Why" cleared out because the key for succeeding in anything is to be extremely perseverant and keep putting in the work even when things are not going your way. No matter what situation/obstacle you face, your “WHY” will always motivate you to keep pushing forward.

Most people say: “My motivation is money. I want to make money..." And to be honest, I used to be that guy. I wanted to make money to feel fulfilled and successful. But using money as motivation only took me so far.

The reality is that money will not make you go out of bed early in a freezing cold morning and make you exit your comfort zone to achieve greatness in life. Well, it might for a short period of time, but not for the long term.

On the other hand, if your main goal is to give your family a better life, live life on your terms or help someone in need, you will do whatever it takes to make things happen. It doesn’t matter how much you struggle… You will get there.

Having said this, I encourage you to think deeply in what will fuel you throughout the journey of building and scaling your business.

Maybe your inner and most powerful desire is to help your family or loved ones. There is no correct “why” because everyone is different and each person has a different reason why they are going to put a ton of hard work and dedication to their work.

Building a business is not for everyone. In fact, a very small percentage of people that start their businesses online truly get amazing results. And it has nothing to do with their intelligence or business skills. In most cases it's simply a matter of how far people are willing to go to change their lives forever.

I'm sure you've heard the fact that 50% of businesses fail within their first 5 years. While that statistic might be true, the reason these businesses fail is because people fail. Most entrepreneurs think that building a business is flowers and rainbows. The true reason why most businesses online fail is because their owners are not working until the business works.
My Story
I can still remember when I was in elementary school and sold candy to my classmates so I could buy an Xbox 360. When I asked my parents if I could get the console they said: “Yes, but you need to work for it”.

At that time the school completely removed chocolates, candy and soda because it made kids get "sugar rushes" and get all hyperactive and crazy. So now the cafeteria didn't have what kids really wanted. So I said, "hmm, what if I just bring it back? I'm sure everyone will buy from me. 

I brought home at least $10 every single day from selling candy and chocolates to my classmates. 

I was about 14 years old by then and I managed to get enough money to buy my own Xbox. My classmates were pretty impressed and by that time I started to get more competition as they started to notice it was a good idea.

Even though I was called to the office and got scold by the principle for selling things at school, I was the happiest kid in the world. I understand a very important concept at a young age, supply and demand. People wanted candy, so I gave them candy and received money in exchange. Simple huh? I started to see that that was the way you made money.

Throughout the years I realized I wasn’t meant to work in a job and fall into the “rat race” just like most people in the world.

The “rat race” is a way of life in which people are caught up in a fiercely competitive struggle for wealth or power. Basically living from pay check to pay check and being 100% attached to a job that does not pay you what you are worth.

I thought to myself: “Why does it have to be that way? Why can’t I just do what I want when I want?” It didn’t make much sense to me.

This is why I began my journey towards time and financial freedom.
I started my journey when I was in 10th grade (high school).

I started looking for ways to make money online. I didn’t care how I would do it, I just wanted something to work.

After doing hundreds of Google searches and typing all of the profitable keywords such as “make money online”, “online business” and “work from home”, I started to learn more about making money online. I saw guys making millions of dollars and I wondered how the hell they managed to do it.

Eventually, I ended up starting with affiliate marketing and buying course after course looking for the next “game changer”. I didn’t really understood how everything worked but I knew people were making crazy amounts of money with it. I wanted my piece of the pie.

I worked everyday at school in the middle of my classes. My classmates always wondered what I was up to. When they asked, I told them the business model and they laughed. They thought it was another pyramid style thing where people got scammed. I didn’t really have the mindset I have now, so it was tough to process those comments.

To be honest I got disappointed many times because I had no income to prove it could work. But I kept hustling and hustling everyday for the next years… I was around 16 back then and I knew that even if it took me 5 years to "crack the code" online, I would still be 21. Even if it took me 10 years to make it work, I would only be 26. So really, I had nothing to lose. I knew one day it would all be worth it.
By the end of 11th grade I had already made my first $1000 online with an affiliate product I was promoting. After that everything pretty much just scaled really fast. I understood that if I delivered massive amounts of value to people, helped them solve their problems without expecting anything in return, they would naturally feel attracted to do business with me.

I started to make money while I was on my school classes. In the image below I remember making $200 in my biology class which I considered pretty awesome! I remember making my first sales by messaging 30-50 new people on social media every single day.

My goal was to have many conversations, provide massive value, and eventually get people to schedule a call where I provided more value and used my affiliate offer to solve their problems.
After struggling a lot my hard work and consistency started to pay off very quickly… These were my first real results as an affiliate. I started to promote business opportunities and internet marketing tools such as website hosting services, marketing softwares and email autoresponders. I made a commission every time someone bought any of these tools or softwares through my affiliate link. This was all before I ever learned about E-Commerce.
I remember there were months where I generated more income than my teachers. I knew I was just scratching the surface. While everyone was saying you needed a good degree, experience or a good college to make money, I was already one step closer to financial freedom.

I graduated on June 21 of 2015 with the most solid mindset someone could ever have. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and be in the future.
So I got my high school degree and started my business degree in a college here in Costa Rica. Now I had way more time to work on my business because it was not a very demanding college.

I wanted to take my business to the next level so I decided to invest most of my life savings on a high end Facebook ads Mastermind. I wanted to master Facebook ads because I knew I couldn't be sending messages forever and paid traffic is the fastest way to scale a business.

I decided I was going to stick with this traffic source till I mastered it. I ran traffic straight for 6 months non-stop. Some days I made good money, others I lost… But the experience I was getting was priceless. It was worth THOUSANDS.

It's been around 3 years since then and I've spent well over $1,300,000 of my own money in Facebook & Instagram ads. I've never received any money from investors.
November 2015 (some months after graduating from high school) I attended a live marketing event in Miami. Many speakers talked about email marketing, affiliate marketing, sales... but in particular 1 caught my attention. This guy started talking about how you could create simple image ads and sell physical products like socks and shirts by having your own online store.

The idea of having my own online store made me stop working in everything I was doing and make myself a promise...

"You will stick to E-Commerce no matter what till you make it work."

By this point I combined my Facebook ads knowledge with what I learned in the event and slowly but surely started "cracking the code".
I started my ads November 25, 2015 and in my first 2 weeks I crossed my first $100 days...
3 weeks later I was already at $200-$300/day in sales. I couldn't believe what I was achieving at this point.
Almost 3 months later I hit my first $1000/day in sales which had always been one of my goals. I remember this day I was super excited.
My first $10,000/day happened November 2016 (11 months later)
This has been my highest day so far in my Internet marketing career. I want you to put this into perspective...
Just 5 years back I was selling candy to my classmates to buy my own xbox 360. It took me 1 full year to make my first sale online working every single day when I had spare time. I was a complete marketing newbie and started 100% from scratch.

As you saw, I scaled things pretty quickly in a 1 year period of time. But you have to remember all the work that I put when I was on my Biology classes. When I messaged 30 people per day on social media. When I cried some nights because I felt I was going nowhere. 

My journey was very far away from an "overnight success".

My E-Commerce business also allowed me to fulfill one of my biggest desires which was investing in real estate.
Making money is just one part of the equation. 

The other part is preserving it. I believe real estate is one of the best ways to preserve wealth and capital. It's easy to get caught into the "rat race" of consumption. In the last 5 years I've seen countless cases where very successful marketers get buried in a mountain of debt after spending all their money in Lambos and Gucci. I believe it's important to invest money wisely and diversify in different stable opportunities.

I will keep investing slowly but surely so that by the time I'm 30 I will have 25-30 deals done.
So What’s Your "Why" Sebastian?
When I first started online I truly thought money was going to give me eternal happiness. I thought "Man when I have $10,000 in my bank account I will be SO happy." Then I thought $20,000 was going to be the magic number, then $50,000. Then $100,000...

I know this might sound cliche, specially if you're in the page reading this. But I realized that what gave me true fulfillment was the person that I was becoming in the process. It was enjoying the little moments with my loved ones and enjoying the freedom that I always desired on high school.

Also figuring things out by my own and cracking through the obstacles that I faced. Progress gives fulfillment.

It's my mission to help people around the world grow their businesses by helping them apply the top working social media marketing strategies so they can reach their financial goals and experience abundant freedom too.
