Interestingly Weird Fact?
Growing up 25 years ago I was a very creative kid, head in the clouds.
At 5 years old I found out there was no Santa so I thought I was smarter than other kids.
How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
My family came to this country when I was 5 years old, immigrated from communist Russia.
My parents worked so hard so I barley ever saw them.
Had a progressive addiction that took over my life.
By the time of 21 I found myself in a jail cell as a convicted felon, lost control of everything going on, had a business during the midst of it.
Had to start over when I got out of there but the nice thing was I was still alive and breathing.
Got arrested when 20 and given a program.
I was only doing it to stay out of jail, I was facing 5 years in state prison.
I gravitated towards network marketing early on with a real estate company and ended up re-locating to South Florida to build that business.
It took 18 months to gain some headway in that business, doing all these offline things.
Around 2008-2009 I got online out of pure necessity, completely self taught.
Twitter was my breakthrough method, I started seeing results really quickly.
Started coaching and training people on what I was doing and found passion in seeing other people succeed online with social media.
Top Social Media Methods?
Facebook is my strongest platform.
We do a lot of PPC for our clients.
D4Y Brand Builder, primarily customers through referral at this point.
Biggest Temporary Defeat?
In late 2008 I was squatting in a house in Plantation Florida.
My pride was huge because I experienced some success already.
I didn’t wanna ask my family for help so I took showers at a nearby gym and got food at a local food bank.
It’s an experience I’m grateful for.
What’s the Vision of Arthur Tubman look like for the future?
My vision is ever evolving.
It’s always just how can I be more and serve more.
I wanna be on the front front of inspiring young people.
My vision is I really love to see people transform, train, empower and inspire people.
Build a legacy.
