Kane Ellis, Making Innovations in the Crypto and the Auto World
Addressing the Needs of the Masses
Importance of Passive Income in 2021!
Having a stable source of passive income is quite crucial. Especially in times like now, if you have only one income source, you are just one step away from poverty. You ought to have some reliable secondary income source. Having a sound investment portfolio can surely help a lot in this regard. But how to make such beneficial investments, in the long run, can be a bit perplexing to decide since you need to be analytical and skeptical at times. Kane Ellis, a progressive entrepreneur, mastered this very art and is now living a dream life. He is a philanthropist, businessman, marketing expert, cryptocurrency, and auto enthusiast. He governs and administers two of the most successful online startups, CarSwap and Nerd Herd, as a CEO and Co-Founder.
Kane and Crypto!
Cryptocurrencies always used to intrigue young Kane. He got fascinated by the idea that digitally mined currencies will find their utility in daily transactions and payments. Eventually, it led him to do more research about it. Once he got fully convinced about the effectiveness and viability of this concept, in the long run, he not only started making some huge investments in this field but also laid the foundations of his very first startup, Nerd Herd. It addressed the consultation needs of the masses as far as technology and corresponding investment options were concerned. Since the startup filled a large void in the market, giving sane investment advice to the people to build their investment portfolio from literally nothing, it soon became a huge success and grew exponentially in scale. With the launch of this startup, Kane also started mining bitcoins on his own. He mined nearly 3 to 4 coins per day back in 2010, and that in itself was a lot. Soon his firm was bidding on some huge contracts, like those ranging to a hundred dollars per hour!
CarSwap, The Initial Days
Kane didn’t stop there as he moved on to make some BIG and groundbreaking development in the vehicle-buy-and-sell sector with the help of his startup CarSwap in 2016. The startup soon gained quite a lot of popularity as it addressed a pressing concern of the common masses, which was to buy and sell their vehicles at market-competitive rates. The startup had an app that worked on matchmaking algorithms to show you the cars you might be interested in purchasing or renting. It also had filters for the accurate and up-to-date market comparison of the vehicles’ prices. Besides providing the users with all the mentioned features, it also generated a handsome revenue from the qualifying offers to car dealerships. Any business model cannot be successful until it solves an issue or addresses a need of the market. CarSwap fulfilled both of these criteria and hence proved to be quite successful in the coming years.
Learning to Fight Alone
All this success doesn’t mean that Kane had it the easy way. There were times when the circumstances were not just right for him, and he had to make some tough decisions. But Kane didn’t get dejected. Instead, he bounced back every time with a rejuvenated heart and soul and an all-time high energy level. Being persistent can be regarded as one of the positive points of Kane Ellis as he had to cover a lot of ground before reaching this stage where he was able to buy his first supercar a Maserati Gran Turismo MC at a very young age of 2
Stepping Out of the Crowd
In this age of utter competition, you need to step out from the rest of the lot. You got to think out of the box to turn your dreams into reality. While most people would advise you to follow your passion, straightforward, the success story of Kane Ellis teaches us to be a bit skeptical as well. It teaches us to be analytical in approach and grab the right opportunity at the right time. Besides, we also learned that making highly profitable investments at a young age can put you years ahead in your career!

How Sam Alawneh Grew His Business Into A Multi-Million Dollar Company
Throughout his life, Sam Alawneh believed that life has a higher purpose than just making money and paying taxes. He envisioned creating a brand that can influence the people around him in a positive way.
“I want to inspire as many people as possible, and to do that, I need a brand behind all that I have,” he said.
Passionate about his dream, Sam started working while he was in college by working in fast food and casual restaurants to put him through college. His first job was at McDonald’s where he made $3.85 an hour.
Eventually, Sam saved enough to build a pushcart that sold food to all the drinking crowd leaving the bars. And through his hard work, he managed to turn his humble start into a successful multi-million dollar company that serves as a testament to how serious he is in making his dream come true.
“It’s special to me because it allows me to touch so many walks of life and make a difference,” Sam said.
Keeping Their Values
As an entrepreneur, the job entails a lot of responsibility, so stress and burnout are inevitable. For Sam, there are different ways to cope with the trials as well as tribulations in life.
For starters, he copes by helping others to become successful as well because he believes that the reward is greater than any money that he could earn.
Other than that, Sam also offers a piece of advice to people who want to leave a positive influence as he does.
“Keep the core values and revisit the mission and vision statement that made them who they are today. Our mission is to improve the human race,” he said.
Six P’s to Success
When it comes to helping others succeed in various aspects of their lives, he offers six P’s: “prior planning prevents piss poor performance.”
Planning is a necessary part of any aspect of life. Not only does it create a concrete plan about where they want to go in life, but it also helps in forming possible solutions should problems arise.
Yet the most important value that Sam wants to instill in other influencers and entrepreneurs is to have passion for what they do. This is also how he managed to grow his brand from scratch and make a profit while doing what he loves.
With the proper work ethic and passion, Sam achieved his goal of leaving a positive impact on the community. Now, he hopes that his story will inspire others to do the same.
RoarjMcKay: Has The Community As His Main Influence Behind His Music
Jonathan Mckay better known as RoarjMcKay is an on the rise psychedelic recording artist hailing from Flint, Michigan. Since beginning his influential project “Keeping Tabs” in 2017, he has focused his sole efforts towards the opioid crisis within his community. He seeks to show his community positivity despite their unfortunate circumstances over the years. “Keeping Tabs” is a mobile application that Jonathan has designed to help aid doctors in healthier prescription tactics. Creating this platform has helped open up his audience and offers cross branding opportunities where brands can exchange dialogue.
In October of 2020 Jonathan began releasing music and started with his debut single “Rotting Rationality”. This production reached worldwide audiences and spanned a total of 2 months to launch officially. The project was recorded by RIAA Gold Award winning team of DuffDidThat with final engineering being done by Dre Berg of Lifeline Studios in Royal Oak, MI. He had his visual show for the single as well. The video was done by Grammy Award Winning Videographer Jo Ikigai and edited by the Keeping Tabs Production team.
“Rotting Rationality” highlights extreme internal struggles within the community. It focuses on the struggle between maintaining motivation and battling survivors’ guilt. Jonathan found a new appreciation for life after living through Flint’s Water Crisis. He was adapting to his new appreciation while also dealing with remission from cancer of the right Salivary Gland. He always chooses the good in all situations which helps to keep him sane. He encourages all to open their minds and practice mindfulness. Jonathan is a Psychedelic Rockstar! This year he will focus on expanding as an artist and a community influence. He also has a few up and coming tracks with indie artist DMTDream as well as a few singles set to drop periodically throughout the year. This Rockstar has an amazing outlook and perspective of life. He states “One of the greatest lessons I’ve learned throughout my professional experience has been to accept diversity and respecting other people‘s paths to success. Understanding that hard work comes in all shapes and sizes and to never judge a person before you meet them. I’ve met some of my most valuable friends in the creative scene.” Focus on learning and allow yourself to connect with the world.
