Aadi Bhanti: From High School Student to Innovation Machine

Published

on

Aadi Bhanti is a fierce young entrepreneur based in Chicago, Illinois. He went from being a regular high school student to an innovation machine. 

At the age of 15, he started a social media agency. This quickly gained attention in Central Illinois, where he had numerous clients in different industries. 

He used this momentum and capital to start Source to Table. Source to Table is a startup which sells meat. Though this may sound simple, I can assure you that it isn’t. They revolutionized the meat supply chain by cutting out warehouses and making it simple for farmers to ship directly to retail consumers on a per order basis. They created a marketplace for farmers and consumers alike to make a connection and order healthier and safer meats.

This came in handy during the peak of COVID-19. While their competitors couldn’t ship due to large warehouses being shut down, Source to Table and their farmers were able to push out product and satisfy customers at a rapid pace. 

The business started with a vision to make it easier for people to get meats that they can trust and meats that are delicious.

Bhanti told me that when they first started and got into the heavy stages of pre-launch, he felt like it was just a pipe dream.

When I asked him why, here’s what he had to say:

“Offering point to point shipping is expensive and requires a much stronger infrastructure at the point of shipping. The warehouse system cuts costs and makes it much easier to ship to multiple destinations if all products from all suppliers are in one place. As much sense as the warehouse system made, we felt the urge to fulfill our promise when starting and that was to allow people to choose their farmers and experience cut-to-order craft meat. This is similar to the point to point airline system in comparison with the hub and spoke system that many airlines use.”

I asked Bhanti if he thinks the point to point model is scalable, his response was:

Of course it’s scalable, I wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t. In the previous question, I was describing my thoughts as we were ramping up for launch. Source to Table is a great example of the power of innovative culture. We found ways to cut costs in other areas to solve the problems that we had. Not using warehouses cut our admin costs significantly, which allows us to invest in quality packaging materials and setups for our farmers. We also know that the more volume we ship the better, due to discounted shipping rates. Our team also found better ways to ship than simply going overnight FEDEX every time which includes courier services, and standard shipping based on route temperature and climate.”

Source to Table is just an example of what Bhanti is good at, he sees massive problems in saturated industries- and he solves them. 

Early this past spring, he co-founded a non-traditional talent agency called InfluenceUs. In March, InfluenceUs was a brand-new agency with mediocre talent, but Bhanti was closing massive deals with large corporations and some of the biggest names on TikTok and Instagram. He was travelling around the country to meet with entertainment industry powerhouses creating opportunities for his exclusive and non-exclusive talent which were unparalleled by anyone else.

How was this possible? 

When I posed this question to Bhanti, he simply answered with one word. That word was networking. 

He didn’t just stop there- he then explained how he’s leveraging his expansive network of young entrepreneurs and influencers to launch a new startup called InfluenceX. For a product that is in the early stages of development, Bhanti has used his network to sign on the biggest influencers on the planet and get the attention of high-level investors around the country.

From what I’ve heard, InfluenceX is going to totally shift the direction of the influencer industry and put some serious financial backing into it. This is the first public mention of the project, but I can assure you that this will be one of the Top 10 app launches of 2021. 

We can all learn a lot from Bhanti. He doesn’t take the traditional route to anything. Like him, if we were all mindful of problems in already heavily saturated industries, I’m sure we could all be moguls. 

Bhanti is a firm believer that entrepreneurial skills are developed and teachable and that anyone can do anything with hard work. He spends at least 6 hours a day networking on his phone, and his computer screen time was absolutely outrageous. He pays attention to the details, focuses on building great teams who think like he does. He’s weirdly methodical and totally open to have discussions with anyone who needs his help.

Talking to Bhanti offers a unique perspective on how to view problems and how to craft solutions. He pays attention to the details, focuses on building great teams who think like he does. He’s weirdly methodical and totally open to have discussions with anyone who needs his help.

How Taking A Risk Allowed Neel Dhingra To Come Far In His Career

Published

on

In business, many avenues could contribute to its success. Among them is the chance to take risks that could either lead to a hindrance or a groundbreaking development. Great risks often result in great outcomes for those who plan well and execute them efficiently. 

So when Neel Dhingra, a digital creator and leader within the mortgage and real estate industry, found an opportunity to take a risk to improve the industry he’s in, he took all the chances he could to learn from it and develop his actions until it bore positive results. 

Executing The Risks 

Neel has a different understanding of risks. He believes that it’s riskier not to try new ideas in business. More importantly, he partners his ideas with execution. He learned to commit first to the risk he was taking and then figure it out as he goes. 

This is how he started in all his business ventures and learned the most about business and marketing. This is also how Neel went about building a personal brand online, which he now teaches to others so they, too, can grow their business and income. 

“When I wanted to get started with content and wasn’t sure how to do video marketing, I just started. I made some really bad videos and then eventually got better,” he said. 

A thousand videos later, Neel became good at it. He committed to executing his plan, asked questions of experts who had done it before, and learned a lot from his actions. 

“I believe that learning by doing is a huge part of success,” Neel shared. 

Helping Others Improve 

Neel entered the mortgage and real estate industry because he has a genuine passion for helping people learn about money. Moreover, the industry allows him to earn a great living while making a positive impact on others. 

But there’s the main barrier to becoming a homeowner and that’s because of the lack of knowledge on how to obtain a mortgage and buy a real estate property. 

After 15 years in the industry, Neel was tired of the traditional ways that companies and individuals communicated with the public because he found it very transactional and revolved around short-term sales activities and advertising. 

He started to learn about marketing and personal branding which completely changed my business and life. He found out how rewarding it is to help other like-minded individuals within the industry learn how they could do the same. 

With the things that he’s learned about leveraging the digital space, Neel now helps others learn how to use personal branding and content marketing to grow their business and income.

What Challenges Trenia Norford Had To Face Before She Made Her Matchmaking Dreams A Reality

Published

on

For as long as she can remember, Trenia Norford has always been in love with love. So whenever she gets the chance, she helps people find their significant others in a world where many individuals are looking to make connections that will last them a lifetime. 

Through her company Connectricity, a highly professional and personalized boutique matchmaking firm, Trenia has helped singles enjoy the dating process and get the results they desire in a short period of time. 

Since 2012, Connectricity has catered to relationship-minded single professionals nationwide.

Proving That She Can 

Before Connectricity, Trenia had a career in the publishing industry and later transitioned to finance. But after giving birth to her first child, Trenia craved for a greater work-life balance where she can do something that she’s passionate about without having to leave her child to a nanny. 

Eventually, she realized that her passion for helping people find love can be the answer to her problems. As a result, she decided to turn her hobby of helping people connect into an actual business. Thus, Connectricity was born. 

But leaving her corporate career where she stayed for 20 years wasn’t easy. She first had to prove to her husband that she was capable of making something lucrative out of her hobby. 

Through hardwork, determination, and an innate love for what she’s doing, Trenia proved that she has what it takes. 

“I have worked with hundreds of singles over 10 years with an 87 percent success rate. I define success as someone entering a long-term committed relationship as a result of my introduction,” she said. 

Finding Her Work-Life Balance 

Now that she runs Connectricity, Trenia has found the work-life balance that she needed to fulfill her duties as an entrepreneur, matchmaker, wife, and mother. 

With her time on her hands, Trenia gets to be there for her two sons at the beginning of the day by preparing them for school. She’s also present to pick them up after school and attend any after-school activities. 

But between 9 AM to 2 PM, Trenia attends sales calls, virtual and in-person client meetings, the matching processes for clients, collaboration efforts with fellow matchmakers, and team meetings.

“I regularly collaborate with international matchmakers to help find matches for their clients and vice versa,” she said. 

She ends the day by helping her children get settled for the night, spending time with her husband, and showing love for herself so she can go to bed well-rested, fulfilled, and happy.
