Jeremy McGilvrey proves it's not about how you start...it's how you finish. He has completely disrupted the marketing industry with his seemingly magical ability to help entrepreneurs QUICKLY flood their websites, landing pages and offers with massive amounts of cheap and targeted prospects that easily convert into leads, sales and profit.
Kindergarten was the first grade I attended. It was also the first grade I failed. Growing up in an environment with a single mother addicted to drugs and destined to live off government assistance for the rest of her life was a constant struggle.
I dropped out of college. Three days later I joined the Army. Much of the structure and discipline I have can be attributed to the four years I served in air defense.
Resigning from Merrill Lynch was not easy. However, the insane amount of success I had at one of the largest financial planning firms in the world gave me the confidence to start my own company.
Named “The Financial Planning Expert” by an NBC affiliate television station I appeared 1000’s of times on TV promoting the financial planning firm I founded. This firm managed more than $100,000,000 in assets.
Facing two life sentences was not easy. I take complete responsibility for the debacle of my financial planning firm and if I could do it over again, I’d definitely do things much, much differently.
I was in prison when my first child was born. To this day the time I’ve missed with him is my biggest regret. Nothing will ever replace that. Nothing. My son Thomas has been the largest driving force for achieving all the success you can read about below.
Getting a second chance is something that not everyone receives. Getting better instead of getting bitter, and having a breakthrough instead of having a breakdown is why I’m so successful today.
Capitalizing on the Internet is something I’ve believed in for a long time. When my brother and I partnered together to launch a dot com, both of our dreams were quickly shattered. Thankfully, I kept going.
Being a father is the greatest gift God has given me in life. Nothing makes me happier than spending time with my son Tristan.
How a person who couldn’t read until he was a teenager wrote the No. 1 marketing book in the world, still astounds me. It proves it doesn’t matter how you start in life, the only thing that counts is how you finish.
