Brad Sugarsâ€™ story isnâ€™t unique
Many others have realized their dreams just as he has. But it does go to show that you can achieve whatever you want to if youâ€™re focused and committed.
You need to have a vision, and you need to think BIG. Then you need to get into action. And it doesnâ€™t really matter how young or old you are.
Brad Sugars started his first business when he was 15, but Colonel Harland Sanders of KFC fame was 65 when he used his $105 Social Security cheque to start his business.
Bradâ€™s story is all about turning dreams into reality. And not just his dreams, but also the dreams of the countless thousands of business owners he and his coaches have worked with over the years.
Brad Sugars father decided his son was going to be a businessman when he found Brad selling his Christmas presents to his brothers at age seven. The following year Brad became much smarter and worked out that if he just rented his toys to them for a day or two at a time, he would get the money and the toys back afterwards.
As soon as Brad Sugars left University, he got a selling job and invested every single dollar he earned into training himself. Courses on money, investing, sales, business, personal growth – you name it, Brad did a course in it.
