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 basically 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.
You need to have this cleared out because the key for succeeding in anything is to be consistent on what you are doing and NEVER give up. No matter what situation/obstacle you face, your “WHY” will always motivate you to keep pushing forward.
Most people tend to say: “My motivation is money” and to be honest, I used to be that guy.
I mean, you doesn’t want more money to buy nice stuff?
But, 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.
On the other hand, if your main goal is to give your family a better life, achieve freedom or maybe help those in need, you will do whatever it takes to get there. It doesn’t matter how much you struggle… You will get there.
Having said this, I encourage you to think deeply in what will power you throughout your journey to success!
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 uses a different “fuel” that motivates them throughout this amazing journey.
I want to be 100% clear. It’s not as easy as buying traffic and seeing money come in. This business requires work, consistency, testing and guts. But, is it worth it?
You may be wondering. Who the hell is this 19 year old guy and why is he giving me lessons about life?
Here’s my story…
My name is Sebastian Gomez if you haven’t yet figured it out. I am from Costa Rica and I dream big.
Since I was very young, I have aspired to be a millionaire when I grew up.
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”.
I brought home about $10 every day from selling candy and chocolates.
I was about 12 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 guy in the world. I understand an 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 understand that was the way you made money.
Throughout the years I have learned that 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. It’s pretty much running in circles with no way out. 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.
After struggling a lot my hard work and consistency started to pay off pretty quickly… These were my first real results as an affiliate when in my high school times. I started to promote business opportunities and internet marketing tools.
I remember the first month I did more money than most of my teachers. 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 what I wanted to do and be in the future. You can tell me that I suck or that what I do is BS, but no one will ever make me change how I think.
Currently, my brother and I decide when to work, where to work and how much to earn. We are not at the level we want to be yet, but we’re getting there.
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.
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 Mastermind. I wanted to master Facebook ads as I knew if I mastered it, I could sell anything I wanted and make money on demand. Paid traffic is the fastest way to 6 figures if you learn how to do it correctly.
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 more than a year and Facebook is the current engine of my business. I took my new business (E-Commerce) to 6 figures in my first 6 months.
Now I help entrepreneurs from all around the world to take their businesses to the next level using Facebook advertising.
I’ve also had the amazing opportunity to network with some of the top leaders of the industry, attend incredible live events and travel to lots of places I always dreamed to go!
