My Personal Story | How I Became An Entrepreneur

I would like to share my “entrepreneur story”, how I became the online entrepreneur that I am today. I hope this will inspire, motivate, or encourage you reading this positively. I hope you will learn something from my personal experience that will change your life.

For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Vlad Strizheus. I am a 22-year-old online entrepreneur in the internet marketing, sales, and consulting niche. I reached a point in my young life that I’m able to coach, mentor, and consult entrepreneurs on how to succeed with their businesses.

Honestly, I feel blessed and I absolutely love what I do for a living, however, it certainly wasn’t like this always.

Have you ever wondered?

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be an online entrepreneur and to live life on your terms? Have you ever imagined being successful and being extremely happy and content doing what you love for a living? You’re about to find out how certain situations in life can lead to something wonderful that can change your entire life for the better.

Proceed to read my story of how I became an online entrepreneur and perhaps you will take something extremely valuable out of it that will help you go through the tough situations you may currently be going through, and even help you succeed in whatever it is you’re doing or pursuing in life.

Pay attention to what you read so you wouldn’t miss out on anything important. If you read carefully and can relate to my story, you will get something extremely awesome here that you will absolutely love.

Here’s how it started…

Some years ago, I was working at a lumber yard, running a window warehouse. I loved my labor job and the people that I worked with. I took my responsibilities very seriously and always tried my best to be a great employee. I won multiple “employee of the month” awards, and my relationship with ALL of the employees as well as management was outstanding. 

However, something didn’t feel right, the work I did took a toll on my physical health, my wrists and back started hurting frequently, and my Sunday nights became very stressful because I didn’t enjoy going to sleep on Sunday night realizing that I must wake up for work on Monday morning.

After some time of working there, I spontaneously decided that I don’t want to work at a labor job for the rest of my life and decided to get higher education to pursue my childhood “dream career”, which was Electronics Technology. I quit my window warehouse job in July of 2015 and got a part-time job at a local hospital while I went to college to study Electronics Technology.

My college education

I was excited to finally pursue my dream career and believed that everything would go well. Indeed things were going well until electronic labs started, which is when I realized something very strange that literally changed everything and my entire life.

I realized that I was confusing many colors and that the colors that I was seeing weren’t the same as everyone else was seeing. That’s when I found out that I was colorblind. I took multiple colorblindness tests and the results confirmed that I’m an “extreme deuteranomaly”.

Since then, things just got different. I enjoyed electronics labs and learning but it quickly became more stressful than enjoyable after some time because I had to do extra work and put in extra effort to work around my colorblindness issue. 

Then, to make it worse, I found out that all of the companies that I was planning to work for after graduation required passing a colorblindness test to get hired.

My career dreams and hopes were crushed. I started skipping classes, I had no desire to continue learning or doing anything and I simply didn’t know what I would do for a living. I ended up successfully finishing one year of the 2-year program (although skipping classes lowered my grades exponentially) and I didn’t go back to finish the rest of the program because I had no future in the Electronics Technology field.

Back to the corporate world

I quit pursuing a career in the Electronics Technology field but because I completed 1 full year of electronics, I got a job offer at a fire alarm company that didn’t require a degree in electronics because the work could be taught on the job. 

So I started working there and it was good for the most part, other than the part that I really struggled with colors (I had to recognize colors when testing fire alarm systems). It got stressful and I really didn’t enjoy doing what I was doing, I was far from being happy and still just as confused about what I will do for the rest of my life.

There was a moment when I wished I never quit my window warehouse job, I was considering going back to that lumber yard and just working there and forgetting about doing something other than labor work for the rest of my life. I was at a very low point in my life and I really didn’t know what to do, I was not happy or content and seemed to not have anything exciting to look forward to in life.

But then something happened that I never in my life imagined would happen.

My turning point

One summer day, I casually got into a conversation with my older cousin Vick at a park where we were playing volleyball and just enjoying the summer day outdoors with friends and family. I started asking him about what he does for a living because I knew he ran some kind of online business that I never considered looking into because I didn’t know anything about the online business world.

So he started explaining to me what he does for a living (without getting into too many details).

He didn’t talk to me about money or a dream lifestyle or anything “hypey”. He simply explained what he does for a living and told me that if I learn sales and marketing and how to work with people, I can do whatever I want in life because the opportunities are endless.

I got very interested and wanted more information out of him about sales and marketing but all he said was to attend an upcoming marketing conference in the state of Arizona and to become a member of his new company to start learning marketing and sales from him.

So I did exactly what he told me.

I attended the conference in Arizona and what I heard there got me very inspired, motivated, and hyped up (which made me want to pursue internet marketing and to become a successful online entrepreneur like my cousin Vick). I started learning what Vick was telling me to learn daily, I was following training videos, reading books and slideshows, and watching many webinars to understand what internet marketing and entrepreneurship is all about. 

I started learning internet marketing in July of 2016. 1 year later, for the first time in my life, I made $10,000 in a single month.

Ever since I started doing internet marketing, my life has never been the same and I never looked back. I went through countless failures and struggles but I kept learning and pursuing online entrepreneurship.

Just a couple months after having that conversation with my cousin at the park, I realized that I found what I can truly be passionate about thanks to Vick and his company- Four Percent. My passion is internet marketing and online entrepreneurship, my passion is working with people.

I could not have imagined in 2015, when I worked at a lumber yard, that one day I’d become an online entrepreneur and love what I do for a living. I’ve reached a point where I can share my personal experiences and knowledge with others- building teams and helping people achieve results and success via coaching, mentorship, and 1-on-1 consulting.

I feel blessed, truly happy, and content and I always have something positive to look forward to which makes my life interesting and exciting.

Can you relate to my story?

I don’t know who you are, what you do for a living, and what’s your story. But I know for a fact that everything happens for a reason, and the choices you make every day, including today, can make a huge difference in your life.

When opportunity knocks on your door- take it. Find your passion and pursue it and never give up. You are capable of doing and achieving much more than you can comprehend at your current state of mind.
