    Dear Tribe,

    According to Harvard Business School study by Shikhar Ghosh, the failure rate of all U.S. companies after five years was over 50%, and over 70% after 10 years.
    This was enough for my friends to try and convince me that dropping out of college in Europe and moving to New York to become an entrepreneur was a mistake.

    After a 8 hour flight I landed in JFK and my new life had begun, with $300 to my name, eyes wide open the opportunities were endless. I stayed with my uncle and slept on the couch for the first year and half. I picked up a job at a local Mexican Restaurant as a dish washer, saved up enough money to attend a Robert Kiyosaki 3 Day Financial Freedom Seminar and my life was changed.

    In 2014 I started up a real estate investing corporation and began wholesaling properties in the tri state area, and although I lost more money than I earned, the education was priceless, I learned how to negotiate with home sellers and buyers, how to run numbers and identify whether an home investment had profit potential or not, and more importantly I sharpened my business skills.

    Although it allowed me to grow as an entrepreneur, the profits weren't prevalent and my money tank kept going back to zero and the level passivity was very low. I was trading my time for money still. so I decided to pursue a new route. Fast forward to 2017. I'm a eCommerce Amazon seller with a year of experience, but without a fast lane breakthrough. I am still seeking to become Financially Free and I am aiming to continue to grow my business and network of likeminded entrepreneurs.

    Thank you for reading my introduction and let's connect!

    Sincerely,

    Mike Mescodi
