High School Senior Jacob O’Connor Speaks On Being A Successful Podcast Host

Published

on

Jacob O’Connor is a high school senior who grew up in a small town ten minutes south from St. Louis. Jacob is also a podcast host and the founder of the Venture Mentality Podcast; a show that interviews some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world. 

I spoke with Jacob the other day and discussed how he’s been able to achieve all these while being a high school senior, he had some pretty interesting things to say;

Exceptional Talents

Jacobs thinks of himself as an excellent communicator; this is besides the two other skills he has been gifted with, which are; the ability to sustain relationships and the ability to take out wisdom from the words of his interviewee.

He is in the habit of searching for deeper meanings and always eager to learn from their words of advice. Not many high school students can maintain a podcast; because of this, Jacob believes his age helps him stand out amongst many others.

Roadblocks

At the start, Jacob faced two significant challenges. The initial one was fear of putting himself out there; he had to deal with the feeling of vulnerability. The knowledge of his reason for doing what he was doing helped him through that. He was aware that he was doing it not for himself but other people. Jacob has a mission, and that is to help people attain their goals and defeat their obstacles.

His second major challenge was setting up his podcast. He had a lot to learn in the technical aspect, but he was able to scale through by teaching himself that which he needed to.

Achievements

The very fact that Jacob is making a difference in the lives of many people is an achievement in itself for him. Being the proud owner of his podcast studio is also an achievement for him.

Business Principles

Jacob’s first principle is that discipline is everything, and without it, he would have been unable to get anything done. He recognizes the role discipline plays in getting tasks done for him. He has been able to develop a formula around it, and he calls it the achievement formula;

discipline + vision = achievement

His second principle is adding value before anything else. He does not believe in going for a meeting or anything at all with the mindset of receiving first. One should always come from a place of service and look for value to give.

Finally, ‘just ask’ is another principle he goes by. He was taught by his mentor Joe Koppies, that it is good to know how to ask. The worst that can happen is that you will get a no. He understands that many people are too afraid to ask for help or anything that they might require

Inspiration stream

Jacob says that his most significant source of inspiration stems from the people that have been able to do something with their lives and make something of themselves. He is greatly inspired by people like Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Michael Jordan, and Andy Frisella. Generally, people whose goals are to make a positive impact on the world.

Building a Reputation from Scratch: Kishmel Eagar’s Story

Published

on

If you’ve ever tried to build an online business, you’ve run into the same obstacle as everyone who succeeded; it’s not easy. To completely start an agency and in under 8 months drive that agency to pump out over 5 figures in revenue is a feat worth admiring. This article is how Kishmel Eagar did just that with ‘Entry Points Media’ and entirely manufactured a credible business reputation from scratch. 

His Story 

Kishmel has spent the past year building his agency from nothing; he’s spent countless hours going through trial and error. A majority of the obstacles Kishmel happened to face were actually self-inflicted such lack of certainty in the longevity of an online business such as his. With thoughts like these looming in kishmels mind in her first few months as an entrepreneur, its no wonder most people give up. What Kishmel quickly learned was that it was going to take much more than focus, discipline, and commitment, you’re going to have to get creative and be ready to invest the time, money and energy that a business takes to build.

The young and tech-savvy entrepreneur was able to grow his name in his industry rather fast due to his niche being very specific. How Kishmel retained his clientele base, and all his future growth was mostly due to the extraordinary customer care he showed. Clients of his have raved about the customer experience, honesty, and integrity of his business and even the strategies he’s put in place to help his clients business grow.

If you’ve ever found yourself working with an individual online that has never lived up to what he promised you to know the headache most consumers go through, a big priority of “Entry Points Media” is to end that hassle of B2B buying experiences. 

Key Takeaways 

A few key points I would like to further touch on when talking about ‘Entry Points Media’ is their promise to consistently offer value to their clients and all prospects as well. Kishmel Eagar, all in all, is a brilliant and dynamic entrepreneur who is capable of delivering services to change the way you do business and put you on the road to success.

Bryan Quaranto, CEO of ProprioX is taking over the world at only 23 years old

Published

on

ProprioX is the newest global corporation to look out for. I had the opportunity to interview CEO, Bryan Quaranto to discuss how he launched his first global corporation at only 23 years old. Bryan not only donated to the Disrupt Foundation, sponsored the upcoming TEDx Condado but he also came with us in person to help donate laptops to college students in Puerto Rico. Bryan is creating a Good Future by recognizing it in the world.

Bryan Quaranto is a well known entrepreneur who has created multiple brands across the United States and Puerto Rico. Now he is taking on the rest of the world as he launches his first global corporation, ProprioX. Helping others along the way, Bryan is focused on developing a real culture in his company called the Honey Empire, a popular term coined by serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk, for extra sweet results. In his new company, Bryan Quaranto will be working on with small business and large corporations looking to develop their brands for the future.

Tell us your story. How did this all get started?

I’ve been building websites since I was 10 years old. I grew up in a small apartment with my mom and brother after my father died when I was 13. School wasn’t for me, I was not a good student. I knew I was going to be successful, but college was not the answer and neither was selling drugs, I thought that there had to be a different route, and I said to myself why am I going to work under someone else my entire life when I can be my own boss? So to create a better future, I launched my first company, Dreamwood Media at 19 years old. After about 3 years of developing and working on Dreamwood Media, I decided to level up, globally, so at 22 years old, I launched my first global brand and soon to be corporation ProprioX.

When I realized I was bridging the gap between problems and solutions. People and companies have problems, I am here to solve them.

I have built multiple successful brands for all different types of audiences and I am continuing to progress in my line of work.

We are focused on brand engineering. We offer consulting and marketing services. ProprioX is a new corporation designed and built as a parent company to serve all the brands we own or operate. Dreamwood Media is a media company owned by us that serves ProprioX. ProprioX is a financial arbitrage machine. ProprioX: Creating a better future by recognizing it. We offer 4 services: Brand Engineering, Social Communications, Community Organization, and Corporate Supervision. Each service is designed to help different audiences.

Bryan thank you again for coming on Disrupt Magazine and for what you have been doing in the community here in Puerto Rico.
