While Brandon Nguyen has achieved huge levels of success in his career so far, it has not been a simple journey. We hear about the biggest lesson he has learned and get an insight into his future goals.
Brandon Nguyen is not a typical 22-year-old – far from it.
The university drop-out started his entrepreneurship journey when he was just 19 and, having sold over $15 million online in the past year across his e-commerce stores, he considers himself an entrepreneur, mentor and direct response marketer.
Brandon is always learning crazy lessons and regularly looks back every two to three months to reflect, while seeing things in a new light.
While many people fail to continue developing and taking the time to learn valuable lessons, that is not the case for Brandon. By learning new lessons, he continues to become better.
But among the biggest lessons he has probably learned came last year, in 2020, when he had close to a million dollars locked up by a payment processing company and he was forced to pay a significant amount of order shipments and customer refunds out of pocket, totaling about $400,000, and was also being sued by the same payment processing company for $2 million “liquidated damages” because the team wanted to get their money back from them.
As a result of this, there were also lawyer fees and a bunch of headaches that he could have done without. It was very tough during this period because he actually hit $0 in his bank accounts twice and was working off credit.
This period truly was a test of Brandon’s values and what he really believed in – and it was also a test of his skills in business.
But he wasn’t really stressing extremely crazy because he knew that he could bet on himself and that he eventually would win the lawsuit, which he did.
However, the biggest lesson that Brandon learned was the fact that there will always be massive fluctuations in business and massive uncertainty.
Mission to be Great
He believes that you never know what’s going to happen so it’s really important to stay focused and believe in the bigger picture.
Luckily, Brandon never spent any money that he made and his main priority is just becoming great, so even if he was at 0 and on credit, he still found a way to smile and work through it all and, finally, he did and he is now back and better than ever before.
Brandon has already achieved a stunning amount in his career so far. He went from $0 to $1,000,000 In one month with his own e-commerce store, made $2,000,000 in one month with his own e-commerce store, more than $10,000,000 in one year with his own e-commerce stores and being one of the most reputable content creators in the e-commerce space online.
What makes this even more impressive is that this came after he dropped out of university with a 1.2 GPA and did not know anything about business and marketing initially – before becoming a leader in the e-commerce drop shipping community.
He has also been awarded by Zipify (Shopify’s top upsell app) multiple times for more than $1 million in upsells and has been awarded by Clickfunnels 2-Comma-Award within two months.
Building a Community
But while Brandon has already achieved a staggering amount already so far, he continues to set his sights on achieving new goals in the future.
He has a future goal to build an educational institution and mentor young lives. He believes the early stages of people’s lives echo massively throughout the rest of their lives and he wants to be there to provide support and be a good mentor and role model, so that they can make a positive impact on their own lives and others.
Currently, Brandon is building a community, mastermind and online educational program.
He has switched over from e-commerce since this new business model fits his personality more and he believes that he can make a greater impact doing this.
Furthermore, he enjoys this much more as it allows him to work more closely with people and be more creative when it comes to marketing.
