Hey! Can you tell us a little about who you are and what you do?

Richard: I was born and raised in the Bay and lived in a city bordering San Francisco. Now have 2 companies, one is a digital marketing agency and the other is my e-commerce company. I grew up in a small Chinatown like city with my parents and started my journey when I was 16 during 2016. I was pretty sick and tired of my limited freedom. I hated school and I knew that I had to achieve financial freedom to be able to do what I want to do whenever I want to.

We often hear stories that make it seem like someone was an overnight success when really there were setbacks and stumbles along the way. Why do you think it’s valuable to be candid about both failure and success?

Richard: First comes many failures then success. You got to experience it to learn.

What’s the best advice you have ever received?

Richard: The more value you give towards your industry the more successful it will become.

What has been the biggest challenge and, on the flip side, the biggest reward for you?

Richard: Holding onto a strict and disciplined routine. I personally workout, meditate, and intermittent fast every morning.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your journey?

Richard: During my journey, I sacrificed a lot of things. Time with my family, ditched all friends, and broke up with my girlfriend. These sacrifice allowed no distractions and I was so much more streamline.

What are two things you wish someone told you when you first started?

  1. Sacrifice now for later.
  2. It is okay to fail.

Who are 3 people that inspire you?

Richard: Elon Musk, Alex Becker and Sam Ovens.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? What lesson did you learn from them?

Richard: I have learned from many programs and YouTubers but Alex Becker taught me the most. He taught me how to focus, sacrifice and balance my life.

What is the best way for someone to reach you if they are interested in working with you?

Instagram Direct Message or Email is the best way to send over a proposal!
