Some people have achieved so much success in life that it is difficult not to wonder how they did it. It sure couldn’t have been easy, which makes it more incredible that they overcame the obstacles in their way. The realizations they had along the way pushed them to grow as individuals and professionals, and through their experiences, they have inspired many people to do what is necessary to attain success.
Consider the story of Aidan Ranzieri, the 16-year-old CEO of the renowned social media growth agency Next Level Growth Agency. Despite being younger than most successful entrepreneurs in his industry, he made his way to the top. At the same time, Aidan used his knowledge to help influencers and brands succeed on social media, and he even wrote a book titled Explosive Entrepreneurship.
One of the many reasons behind Aidan’s success is because he enjoys what he does. Therefore, he advises aspiring entrepreneurs first to consider what industry they want to work in. If someone wants to contribute to a particular space, they will be more motivated and less likely to give up. When someone is doing something they enjoy, they will be motivated to persevere in the face of difficulties because they are passionate about what they are doing. They will also find themselves brimming with ideas on how to impact the industry better.
Aside from the industry, people should also have clear goals in mind for their businesses. It’s ideal if they think of a product or service that provides a solution to a problem they personally care about; this is one of the best ways to appeal to a client. In Aidan’s case, helping new and small businesses scale up through social media is close to his heart, which inspired his idea behind Next Level Growth Agency.
When someone runs a business in an industry they enjoy, they will find that they enjoy most of their tasks. It is critical in this line of work that they feel connected to their work because there will be times when they want to give up. However, if they love what they are doing and have a specific goal in mind, they can find the motivation to get back up despite everything.
In fact, before Aidan got into the social media growth agency industry, he worked on different businesses. He built an e-commerce drop-shipping website, sold clothing and shoes on eBay, and co-founded the fitness brand Achedaway. Due to all of the trials that he faced from his previous ventures, he learned a lot about entrepreneurship and gained an even stronger interest in business, which helped him persevere in the face of numerous obstacles and achieve success.
Aidan always emphasizes the importance of prioritizing one’s people. This applies to both their employees and their clients. A team will not be able to provide the best service unless they are satisfied with their work. Therefore, it’s important to value one’s employees, be approachable, and don’t settle for anything less than giving them what they deserve for their hard work and investment.
