INTRO Hello friends, I want to share my Story with you

I'm Eduard, 23 years old, a collage student from Germany and just finished reading UNSCRIPTED.

For my introduction I will tell you a short story of my life.

My youth wasn't easy, my parents are from Russia and moved to Germany in 1999 when I was 4 years old. So I grew up in a decided society between my parents view and the foreign German culture. Thank jobs and capitalism my parents started consuming, and consuming and raised me with the information, you have to got to school and get a job so you can consume.

I was obese in high school, like 100 kilogram at 13 years old, get bullied a lot started smoking and drinking when I was 14, played computer games all the time and sucked at school. My parents couldn't help me with my issues so I kinda raised myself truth this the only fear my parents had at that time was that I don't find a job, but I wasn't even ready to work yet.

My first degree was horrible so I started over and repeated, with 16 I started fitness and it changed my life, I got a bit discipline from that, have something that makes me happy and fit, I lost weight and get a decent degree, buuuuut not ready to work now.

So get a High school degree I said to me so you can chill another 3 years in school and don't have to work, nice plan. First year went really well for me, I was a mediocre student, lazy and just learn as much as I need. Well at 19 I started smoking weed on a daily bases and it barely costs me my high school degree.

Fresh out of high school, 2 years of smoking weed don't know what I want in life, collage seems a nice place to chill, partys and no work. I failed horribly, felt dumb and started to hate education. I ended up in my parents house, a 21 years old virgin working in a supermarket smoking weed all day, and million questions in my head. The only thing that kept me alive was fitness. That was all life is offering me?

I was sick of that shit and wanted to change something and the first thing I wanted to to is going out sober and met new people and get out the "bad fiends", but don't know how. I've met an old friend of mine and he said he will help me with that and introduced me to something magical, BOOKS.

I thought wow a book exists for picking up girls ? Let me check that out and that's the first book that I've read from beginning to end at the age of 21, it was the Rational Male (Rollo Tomasi).

After that book I felt in love with reading, Eckhart Tolle, Anthony Robbins and so on.

I experienced a new world for me, if i have a question I can read a book and solve my problem within days, that's freaking awesome. Got a girlfriend life was easy and good, I experienced happiness everything was good. I decided to go back to collage in the subject Social studies because I'm fascinated of society and how it works.

With big goals and plans for my future I packed my stuff and moved to Würzburg. were I ended in a fraternity and lost my girlfriend. And welcome to the mediocre, drug abusive bullshit again, great. It don't take me long that time to realize what the F*ck i was doing wrong. I moved out from the frat house, started reading like again like 3 books a week to get back on track so fast I possibly can. Started giving a F*ck about every excuse I give myself, bought DJ equipment because I wanted to do that my whole life and be creative and really started to chase my goals.

I live a happy life now, Im free, healthy, striving for wisdom and get a lot of girls all in one im happy. But one thing is not right yet "wealth", sure I can live without much money at the moment and my parents are supportive although the don't have much them self, what I really appreciate. To unburden them a little I work in a Nightclub surround myself with drug abusive people again and work FOR them? And what after my Bachelor Degree? Work again for someone else? And what is the perspective for a Job if my Professor even say that the market of Political and Social Studies is not big an like 10 to 20% can get a job.

That's not an Option for me, so now is my moment im happy with me and life, have nothing to lose and just go for the Entrepreneurship because I want it! I want that my parents that I love live dept free, I want to be possible to raise children someday and give them my wisdom and give them that knowledge I wished had, I want to give the world something, some perspective and advice for those who failed and had a bad experience with the society and the school system in that we life.

I can't see anymore that people are sick and tired from being trapped in the system and try to help those who to listen. But that's an higher goal of mine.

Now to my Entrepreneur idea, how I get a little bit of money realistically not Millions, but like 1000$-2000$ a month, my goal is 100,000$ a year, just to unburden my parents, fiance my own life and have something to invest in other business ideas. I've connected with a lot of people DJ's, Event manager, Clubs, Bars. And see there's a problem everyone struggles to get costumers, they give out flyers in front of the cafeteria, place posters and so on but the event is empty even though it's a very nice location and sometimes its really stuffed. Many newcomers in the

Event scene like a friend of mine don't realize how important the advertising is sometimes, they book a nice location, book a nice famous DJ, flyers and and and.... spend X money and not many people shows up, because they don't even know how much value that event has and that it even exists at that day.

To me the answer is easy Social Media Marketing!

Im inspired by Gary Vaynerchuck and love his content I think that niche can work for me and im learning social media marketing at the moment. Has someone experience with that topic or that niche and can give me some advice?

Why I tell you all this, I want to share with you my story and how lucky I am that it wasn't always easy for me because it made me who I am and hope that it will gives some of you motivation. I hope I meet in this Forum honest and nice people, to share storys, high value content and ideas with. The text is not in perfect English and it's so long because i want to improve my writing and story telling skills in English, so please give some Feedback and advice :)
Lovely greetings Eduard

Yeah, his books really changed my whole mindset. I'm so thankful that he gave me that glimpse of enlightenment that connected me with life again. He has a special place in my heart and I will read his books over and over again, because they give me so much power and energy.
