Joe Staiber grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. From a young age, he was misunderstood, and at one point his father told him “Joe, your brain works differently, you will always be misunderstood. He never enjoyed school, but always had hustles as a child, trying to make a few bucks.

After graduating high school, he went on to the traditional path, college. While he was a freshman, he knew life had more to offer. He was heartbroken from a relationship, and doing all the things he shouldn’t be doing. He started to experiment with a few different ways to make money online. While searching around online, he found Shopify Dropshipping. He took the last $5000 he had an invested into an online course and inventory. He lost all of it. Scared and afraid, he scraped up $2000 from retail arbitrage to make something happen, and he did.

He saw serious results with his first store, and after hitting $50,000 in revenue, he dropped out of college. Although he was making money, he wasn’t getting around anyone else that was or doing much personal development. Joe did the only thing he knew, started going to conferences. He was meeting likeminded individuals and learning in the process. He had multiple successful Shopify stores, a growing personal brand, and was growing his network. Nothing was stopping him.

In less than a year, Joe was truly seeing his manifestations becoming a reality. He had seven figures in personal and student sales, over 250 students, and a successful personal brand. This April, he was approached by Simon Lerner to speak at Netcon 2019. In only four short months after attending his first event, he was speaking at one. Joe saw the power of manifestation and hard work play out in his life.

Although Joe’s story is incredible, his results are duplicatable. Joe has had massive success and never wavered on what he wanted. That’s how he went from a dropout to an event attendee, to a speaker, all in under a year.
