Mario, what’s an Interestingly weird fact about yourself?
Put me on stage or on camera or with a mic and it completely changes, I’m outgoing, rock it and confident.
How did your entrepreneurial journey start?
I stumbled upon the book Rich Dad Poor Dad, my world was shocked.
It implanted the idea of running my own business and this is how I got interested in marketing.
It was a struggle, bought all the products, got overwhelmed and didn’t execute really.
Then I went to the Mass Control event in San Diego with Frank Kern.
Created my first info product for $7 and haven’t looked back since.
This event gave me the belief that this stuff actually works.
Big Reason Why:
It started out over financial matters when I was broke in Miami and wanted to get out of that situation.
I Needed to make $2K to quit my day job, this was my first reason why in the beginning.
Later on it became a lot more about the vision, helping my mom, my wife and family so it turned from money to impact.
Biggest Temporary Defeat:
My first 6 months I tried pulling off a big launch, put so much work into it, went to so many events for jv partners on board, put all my money and resources online.
When it released it was a failure, that totally bombed.
It was a disaster!
Biggest Takeaway learned from it:
So many lessons.
You have to have that 1 thing.
“What’s the 1 thing/main benefit they are gonna get out of it?”
Vision for the future:
Living up to my own potential.
Help as many people as I can.

If all you had was $1k and a labtop?
I would do a product launch and give away all the commissions.
Spend $500 on a simple sales page and other on launch contest.
Give away all commissions.
To make it an irresistible offer so jv partners jump on it and promote it and I can build a buyers list quickly.
