Hey. I am Alex Monaco. Author and entrepreneur. Some people call me a happy bastard because I am extremely successful, even though I came from the bottom.
Look at the guy on the left:
Yes, that was me.
In 2001, I worked in Torquay (England). My wage was £3 an hour. The apartment I rented and the food were expensive, so I couldn’t save a penny.
“Alex, you need extra work,” I decided. (I had the mindset of an employee).
I got a job as a housekeeper. My duties were: 1) Clean toilets. 2) Collect spermed linens. 3) Put linens into green bags. 4) Carry bags to the laundry room.
Bags had to be dragged on the back. It was difficult, so I pulled my back. I couldn’t work, so I got fired… I barely survived by borrowing money… After recovering, I tried to find a job again. Welcome back to the rat race!
When I got a job at the “TLH Victoria Hotel,” I managed to save more. Because they allowed me to eat in their restaurant. After two years, I saved over £3,000. I know, it’s not much. But with it, I was able to register a company, buy computers and rent an office.
The establishment of the first business
The first year in business was shitty. I didn’t know where to find clients. Fear and helplessness overwhelmed me. I went to the city center and visited all the shops. I just walked around and asked, “Do you need a website? I can create one and promote your services on Google!”
They laughed at me. And they were right to do so. Because I didn’t know how to promote myself. That’s why I didn’t have any clients. And even though I found an employee, at first he worked on credit. And when the money started coming in, all of the money went to the employee. Nothing was left for me. This meant that I needed more clients.
“People should find me on Google,” I said to myself. I began learning the secrets of SEO. After a year of mastering search engine optimization (SEO), I found myself on the first pages of Google search results. My marketing agency burst into bloom and began to yield a profit. Orders started pouring in from Monaco, US, and England. I worked with Travel Visa Pro, Pivot Capital Fund, Monaco Fine Arts, Physitrack, and many other famous companies. After many years, I rebranded my old company to ADFACE and sold it.
But business didn’t solve my problems. Despite being successful, there was an overturn in 2013… Curious?
The trap into which successful entrepreneurs fall and into which you can fall too if you repeat my mistakes
In 2013, even though I had everything that the modern youth wants (a successful business, a luxurious work desk, a favorite hobby, and a significant other), my world fell apart.
First, 90% of employees placed their resignations letters on the table. (I was very demanding and often shouted at my team members.)
Additionally, things went wrong with my woman. At that time, my happiness depended on whether I had a woman and material success, so losing both of these things left me in an emotional hole. I had to reformat the reasons that made me feel happy. Believe me; there was plenty of work. I remember looking in the mirror and saying to myself, “Hey Alex, your goals were naive and superficial! You were striving for POP goals. But you needed to strive for wise goals.” Of course, business and relationships are not bad things, but there are other things not written about on the internet. To understand all of this, I had to do a lot of research. And I found the answer. I understood society’s mistakes. I understood what wise goals are and which ones should be considered POP goals. I wrote about it here: Discover your life goals.
Realizing how many people strive for false goals, I began a revolution of consciousness. I created this website and social media accounts. Now I have a huge army that believes in me. I write articles in 6 languages.
My accounts currently have over 35,000 followers and are quickly approaching 100,000.
My website is visited by 77,000 readers every month.
This is the www.alexmonaco.net website traffic for January 2023. Who knows how many people read me today?
It’s certainly clear that Americans are the ones who read me the most.
I’m not even talking about social channels. Thousands of people follow me on different Instagram and TikTok accounts.
Below are some of my social media accounts:
– Instagram: instagram.com/alexmonaconet
– Official website: www.alexmonaco.net
– Facebook: facebook.com/AlexMonaco.net
