When I started my agency SOBEVIRAL in my rundown little studio apartment in Miami’s south beach back in 2014, I didn't do it to make a bunch of money. I did it to break free of a series of nightmare job situations and bad bosses.
College was supposed to guarantee us all that amazing job with benefits and a great life right? Lol, no.
After college I was a flight attendant for 4 months and couldn’t pay my bills, then I worked for a sleep aid company doing social and was paid pennies while dealing with a super toxic work environment. I remember one time where one of the bosses literally threw a laptop across the room in a screaming fit. Another time when they laid off half of the staff in one day and everyone was terrified to “get the call” to come into the office.
After that, I worked for an energy shot company (ironically) that massively undervalued what I could do for them, and again, paid me very little. That is when I decided that I wasn’t going to let my fate be decided by someone other than myself. I decided to make my marketing agency SobeViral my main focus and break free.
I remember proposing to my boss at the energy shot company to become a SobeViral client, pay me HALF of my salary, for the SAME amount of work, but in the form of a retainer instead of a paycheck. No benefits, less compensation, and the SAME amount of work. Sounds like the deal of a lifetime? Lol nope. They were so offended that I would spend my time doing anything else other than work for them that they gave me an ultimatum. Continue working for them, in their office from 9-6pm every day and give up SOBEVIRAL... or quit.
I quit that day. Never looked back, and felt amazing doing it. And the best part? The energy shot company went bankrupt 4 months later and laid off everyone in a single day.
Since then I have been fully dedicated to growing my agency SOBEVIRAL and I have generated over 3 Million in revenue, earned my first Clickfunnels 2 Comma Club Award, and have more on the way,
SOBEVIRAL is now a multiple 7-figure/year company and still scaling.
Moral of the story?
Don’t give up on your dreams. Take control of your life. Don’t make excuses. And don’t work for bad bosses.
I built the Done-For-You agency program to allow new agency owners to skip all of the trial and error and painful missteps most make when launching their agency. So you don’t have to “learn the hard way”. You can just do it right and rapidly hit your first 6-figures.
