Combat Veteran Luis Jorge Rios Story from War to Writer
Besides being a husband, and a father of two lovely boys, Luis Jorge Rios is a real estate investor in America, press and media entrepreneur, and a TEDx event organizer. Before he got into the business world, Luis spent a decade working in the US Army, where he was deployed for active service in Iraq and Afghanistan. These ten years brought him face to face with death many times, but his life in the army shaped him into the man he is today.
Fresh out of service and with no experience in business, Luis decided to hit the ground running. He chose the self-development route, taking on a college education and later on accidentally tripping into sales.
“I like to think that sales chose me,” Luis comments.
This is not far from the truth, because he was able to dominate the industry and close high-ticket sales using the skills he had learned from military intelligence and training, as well as by reading lots of books.
In only eight years, Luis Jorge Rios has worked with non-profit organizations, global influencers, and entrepreneurs such as Mark Cuban. David Hasselhoff, among others. With this, he has been actively establishing his footprints in the press.
The Mentorship that changed narration
Not many people ever get the chance to sit with top players of the billionaires and millionaires club. Luis is one of the lucky few. He once worked for an organization sponsored by the Mark Cuban Foundation, and through that engagement he met with Mark himself brain multiple times. Seizing the opportunity of Mark’s generosity to veterans, Luis was able to have conversations with and get mentoring. This was a major step that propelled him into his work in press and events, such as TEDx. Luis now prides himself on taking on anyone with passion and driving them to high levels with media coverage and speaking opportunities.
