About the Guest:
Zachary Babcock had to learn the hard way as he began building his business – because, it was time to get to work when he got out of prison on October 2nd, 2014. It definitely wasn’t easy – he got into entrepreneurship because he didn’t have many options. Plus he liked the idea of betting on himself. However, it was a struggle, and he barely got by. He did network marketing for 2 years, and made almost $2k a month within his first 6 months, but it just wasn’t his thing. So, his business crumbled and he left after 2 years. Then, at the very beginning of 2017, he became a ‘life coach’. He didn’t make a single penny or help anybody as a life coach because his messaging was a “hot mess”, and like everyone just starting out, he “sucked”. Every time he tried to collaborate with anyone, nobody took him seriously. Rather, he was just some ex-convict turned entrepreneur afterthought that nobody gave the time of day to – because, “Who is Zach Babcock?”
Here on Underdog Empowerment, you’re going to learn how to master skills to build your business and personal brand as I master mine (yeah, I practice what I preach unlike a lot of these clowns). Whether you’ve been in the game for a while and you’re already ball’n out or if you’re just starting out, you’ll have access to everything I’ve already mastered, and everything I’m currently learning. I don’t have all the answers, nobody does. But I stick my neck on the line every day and share what I discover in the process. And I get around the greatest minds in the game on my podcast to streamline everything. Let me share a little more about how I got here, and what that means for you…
