Success can be found in the most unexpected places. The world’s most prominent entrepreneurs had to start somewhere, but most of us only see what they have become. Unbeknownst to the public, the most successful people in business faced countless trials to get to where they are today.
Josh King Madrid knows this all too well. Dropping out of college at an early age, he faced countless tough decisions. But through grit, passion, and determination, he came out on top as one of the most decorated Internet Marketing professionals the world has ever seen.
When asked about where his entrepreneurial journey truly began, Josh, aka JetSetFly, recalls a time when his father showed him the ropes. He was in second grade when his father loaned him $15 and showed him how to buy beanies from China at wholesale prices. “He told me to buy them, sell them to kids at my school and pay him back and to use the profits to buy my own clothes and toys that I wanted. So I did,” he shared.
He went to school and after-school winter camp with the other kids and sold all the beanies for $5. At that moment, he discovered his passion for entrepreneurship. Since that day, he realized that he was able to get anything he wanted with the right information, relentless drive and an impeccable work ethic.
“That small accomplishment has led me to accomplish every goal in my life, sports-wise, relationship-wise, material-wise, and most importantly, impact-wise. It would take years later for me to truly realize how that one single event boosted my inner confidence and influence skills by putting me on a path of constant self-growth. I think it is very important to treat everything in life as a win, no matter how big or small it may be. Once you get used to winning as a habit, you’ll never accept a loss. Things will just start to always go in your favor,” shared JetSetFly.
Fast forward to 2016, a friend of his formally introduced him to Internet Marketing. He quickly dove into the industry without a moment’s hesitation. Once he acquired a grasp of the concepts, he was contacted by his friend, who invented the original technology that forever changed the way products and services were sold on Instagram. His friend would become the innovator who would introduce the world’s first-ever Instagram DM Automation Chatbot, a revolutionary form of technology that has been a massive game-changer in the marketing industry.
JetSetFly became the first-ever beta-tester for this tech years before it was made public. “Over that time period, we created, tested and mastered dozens of new marketing campaigns learning how to launch viral ads with over 90% opt-in rates consistently. We were able to quadruple our brands’ sales with only half the cost,” shared the trailblazing entrepreneur.
Since then, he has cut out every other form of marketing, strictly opting for Instagram DM Automation to generate several hundred thousand leads and over $10 million in sales revenue. At this point, JetSetFly gained a massive following on his social media, amassing over half a million followers across all platforms. “Without the opportunity to learn and access his tech, it would have cost me multiple millions of dollars to get those same results using traditional online advertising and marketing strategies,” he added.
Nowadays, JetSetFly is known for successfully generating leads with viral product campaigns. He has acquired over $20 million online, earning him a pristine reputation in the industry and a huge following to boot. He currently focuses on building his personal brand, recording podcasts, and creating valuable content to share with his followers. By the time he turned 21 years old, JetSetFly had already shared stages with Fortune 500 CEOs, Billionaires, top motivational speakers and the biggest social media business personalities such as Tai Lopez, Andy Frisella, and Eric Thomas the Hip-Hop Preacher.
JetSetFly has indeed come a long way since his start in the business industry. From being a college dropout with $0 worth of assets to his name to making his first million at the age of 19. One thing’s for sure: this only marks the beginning for the firebrand entrepreneur, and it’s exciting to see where he’ll be in the years to come.
