It brought his brand a ton of opportunities and has helped fulfill his passion for traveling. It was not always this way, as young entrepreneurs always start somewhere. Dale started in the basement of his home using a homemade workstation. Thinking smart he eventually saved enough earnings from cutting hair to turn his basement into an actual shop. At first he was only doing cuts part time and still working his IT job. His passion was not in the IT field. He found his true calling and passion within hair, so that is what he decided to pursue. 

Throughout his 6 year journey he has done countless work around the U.S and also other countries. Through his travels he learned a lot and has seen some of the world’s most scenic places while working. He states “ I believe in hard work to achieve and believe, learning is never done. I am strongly towards the unity of barbers across the world because we all share one heart for the hair, which is why I love traveling for the love of hair and the community.” Dale has had the opportunity to do hair in New York, Trinidad and Tabago, Costa Rica, Paris and Dubai. Having an entrepreneur mindset he sought to pursue more revenue and has implemented a small shoe boutique within his shop. He was even featured on an episode of “The Sneaker Game”. 

Dale Of Fade has been paid over $1,500 for a haircut in Dubai. He has also cut inside billionaire car collector’s car garage Don Casanova. He has cut hair in front of the Eiffel Tower, Times Square, the jungles of Costa Rica and much more. Dale has worked with key figures such as Don Casanova, Hush Puppi, Mo Vlogs, Dj Bliss and many others. He has started from the ground up and has made something of himself, He spreads the Barber Shop culture as he travels the world doing what he loves. His goals as of now are to create a bigger location and also to franchise that new location into a series of barbershop/sneaker stores. He also wishes to travel to Mumbai, India and cut hair for the homeless to generate media and assist the homeless in that area.

Dale Of Fade says “  I’ve learned thus far to always remember to be yourself no matter who you are in front of and never to forget where you came from and always respect the people that support you. I learned to always look out for anyone on my team and make sure they get what they deserve for the work they put in.” He shows that travel helps to broaden the mind and unlock capabilities. Interacting with people from around the world teaches you to appreciate what else is out there. Learning never ends.

Why “It Doesn’t Take Money To Make Money”, According To Social Media Star Ken Mack

Published

“It takes money to make money” – fact or fiction? We put the question to investor Ken Mack, and he tells us that this phrase is “total rubbish!”. Ken, who comes from humble beginnings, was born in the UK, in the country of Scotland. He now resides in multiple locations around the world, and is currently based in Dubai. The self made millionaire tells us how he started his journey 16 years ago. As he had no money to start with, he needed to find a creative way to create wealth without using any of his own money, simply because he didn’t have any. His quest for wealth led him to discover a strategy known as a leveraged buyout. 

A leveraged buyout is a strategy in which you can buy an existing successful business using other people’s money. One such example of a leveraged buyout is utilizing “seller finance” or “deferred consideration” to buy a profitable business. This is where you can agree a price to buy a business from the business owner and rather than paying up front, you can pay the seller over a set period of time by using the cash flow which the business generates. This effectively allows you to buy businesses without using any of your own money. This is the exact strategy that Mack used to create his wealth. 

Ken tells us “it doesn’t take money to buy a business, it takes strategy. Similarly it doesn’t take money to buy real estate, it takes strategy. For example, in Spain you can get a 113% mortgage which means that they [the bank] will pay you to borrow money. And again no deposit is required and the bank will even pay your buying fees.” Ken went on to give us several other strategies for wealth creation such as “rent to rent”. 

We asked Ken if having a mentor is essential for creating wealth. He told us that he cannot say it is essential as he did not have a mentor himself, when he started. However, “the kind of person who says that it takes money to make money, typically has a victim type mentality and they are the ones who could benefit from a mentor the most. Having a mentor will expedite your success and send you light years ahead”, according to Mack. 

Ken Mack now dedicates his time to coaching others to create wealth and he is aggressively working towards becoming “the greatest generational wealth coach of all time”. He tells us that he hopes to achieve this by sharing his real life experiences with normal people who can benefit from them and he believes that anyone can create generational wealth, just like him. As far as the phrase “It takes money to make money” goes, Ken leaves us in no doubt that in his opinion, this is most definitely not the case!

How Cecilia And Shane Grizzard Tapped Into The Potential Of The Online Space

Published

on

Sometimes, people forget or are unable to claim packages from e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Target, or Walmart. Fortunately, these items don’t always go to waste, as people claim them as mystery packages that they open in hopes of finding something valuable. 

While the packages aren’t always what they seem to be, the people who acquire them find different opportunities to monetize them. Influencers even film themselves as they open the packages and guess their contents. 

Cecilia and Shane Grizzard were also interested in mystery boxes, but not for the reasons mentioned. They saw an opportunity to profit from them by tapping into the e-commerce industry. 

Growing In Numbers 

“Shane and I started our e-commerce career with liquidation pallets such as Target, Walmart, Amazon mystery boxes, etc. Then, we started buying truckloads of inventory from target overstocks such as baby items and furniture,” Cecilia said.  

Cecilia realized she wanted to enter the e-commerce industry after seeing that only a few people shop in stores, and the online shopping market is gaining popularity. She also wanted to relax a little from her travel job and run a business from home. 

After an interested customer bought an item from the couple, they created a group page on Facebook and started listing on the Facebook marketplace. Cecilia and Shane then shared their group page and got noticed by other consumers. 

The pair later decided to venture out and started on eBay. In just seven months, they made $75,000 in sales. Cecilia later told Shane to begin selling on Amazon, where they made $55,000 in sales in just one month, with $35,000 in profit. After seven months, the couple earned $140,000 in sales, with $75,000 in profit. 

“The more I share it on my Instagram, the more I get noticed. I was having people ask me for help constantly, which made me start my automation service, CS’ E-commerce,” Cecilia said. 

Starting An Automation Service 

Once the couple’s e-commerce business took off, and Cecilia shared more about it on her Instagram account, more people noticed their success and began asking for help in their e-commerce business. 

Seeing this as another opportunity to exercise her entrepreneurial skills, Cecilia started her automation service, CS’ E-commerce. 

“It takes capital to do $55,000 in sales with a $35,000 profit, but not a lot of people do that in e-commerce. That’s, sometimes someone’s yearly salary at a 9-5 job. I know I can change someone’s life with the automation services I offer,” Cecilia said.
