As a teenager, entrepreneur Lorenzo Green was already making a living working at home. Now as the founder of his own successful marketing company, he’s showing others how to do it too. Green discusses what it takes to be successful in this digital age and how people can create success without ever stepping foot into an office building again.
He has mastered the art of productivity and optimizing his life – whether it’s answering emails or developing strategies for clients- all from the comfort of home. At the same time, he still gets to make time for sleep, exercise and spending time with his loved ones. For many entrepreneurs, this would seem like a dream come true but for Lorenzo Green, it was just another day at the office.
The drive and passion that led to Lorenzo’s success came from a young age. During his teenage years, he was already making money through freelance graphic design jobs and buying and selling domains. It wasn’t until he found his niche in building communities on gaming and fan forums that he earned a full-time salary.
After graduating with a degree in e-commerce and digital media design, he was faced with the decision of getting a “real job” or pursuing making money online. He knew the 9-5 path was not for him. And after years of working online for himself with no guarantee that it would be stable or lucrative enough, he finally made the decision to pursue an actual career in digital marketing.
Now, Lorenzo Green has co-founded and bootstrapped 7 profitable dollar businesses. He’s been in multiple businesses across different industries like education, software as a service (SaaS), ad technology, conferences, and hospitality.
If you’re an entrepreneur wanting to start your own business, don’t be discouraged by the thought of having to wait until you have more experience or money. There are plenty of opportunities out there for those who are willing to put in the work – and starting early can only give you a head start on your competition, just like Lorenzo did.
