He has built several multi-million dollar companies in both Australia and the United States, and really doesn’t look like he is slowing down in the regard to creating his own destiny.
In 2005 he co-founded one of the first crowdfunding platforms in the world which went on to raise in excess of $100M dollars for start-ups and early stage businesses.
He currently owns a cloud software business, an Amazon review company (based in Florida), a home-wares company that sells its products exclusively through Amazon into 8 countries, and Reliable Education.
None of his companies have outside investors and all are profitable.
But what is super interesting to me is how he has created businesses in environments that we all hang around in, and almost take for granted.
Such as in 2012, he learned about the opportunity to sell on Amazon through a friend.
Now like all of us, he was used to seeing Amazon boxes all over town and he was a big user of Amazon himself.
But it wasn’t until he took a course that he learned that anybody could sell on Amazon, and that Amazon would handle all of the warehousing and shipping for him.
Once he understood that, he soon launched his own brand which now sells in 8 Amazon marketplaces around the world.
So how does he see these things, when so many people will just walk past them time and time again and never think “Wow what an opportunity!”?
And does he feel that anyone can do these kind of things, or to become a serial entrepreneur, do you require special talents and skills that are god given at birth?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr Adam Hudson.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Adam Hudson such as:
How he realised that he wanted to become an entrepreneur, as he knew instinctively that he wanted the control of his own lifestyle and future.
Why he can now see that your success is about timing, a great idea, and getting things out to the market place as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Test before anything else.
How happiness is at the end of gratitude and not found in a bank balance no matter how many times you hear people say otherwise.
How he can now see that he took too much on in his life, and now only focuses on business building that solve peoples problems easily. Which has solved his own problem of overwork and stress in the process.
