He then started dabbling in a lot of different products and opportunities while working full time as a jewelry salesperson.
He then struggled for 3 years until finally coming across his first real mentor who recognized his potential in video and told him to focus on YouTube marketing.
Within the next month Joshua had his first $1,000 day breakthrough.
From then on he knew what was possible.
Ever since then he’s had his biggest day at $7,000 and his biggest week was nearly $14,000 and his biggest month has been $20,000 recently this last month.
Josh, what’s an interestingly weird fact about yourself?
I’m pretty good with impressions and loved watching comedies growing up.
How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
Got recruited to a school in southern Utah.
I didn’t pursue the challenge because didn’t wanna work for someone else my whole life.
Always had that entrepreneurial mindset to live life on my own terms.
Found my purpose in living life on my own terms.
Hopped online to fund ways to make money online.
Roughly 3 years ago had a 100 different websites making money from Google Adsense and woke up 1 night and my income dropped to zero.
That didn’t stop me, I had a big vision and dream.
Worked in retail jewelry for 6 years.
Knew I was worth more and can live my own dreams.
Late December of 2013 I came across my mentor.
Started modeling my mentor and had my first $200 day which was my first big breakthrough.
Eventually connected with him, and focused on video taking his advice.
Big Reason Why:
Get a mentor who has what you want.
My vision is to take someone brand new looking to generate an income from home, get a mentor and learn everything you can from them to shortcut your success.
Biggest Temporary Defeat:
Lost rankings on 100 of my sites.
Bought a lot of course throughout my career but didn’t take action.
Last summer I went from full time to part time.
What’s the vision of Joshua Elder look like for the future?
