29-year-old Graham Byers is a prodigy of an entrepreneur, with no signs of slowing down.
Fresh out of college at age 22, and desperate to change his prospects after his family suffered under the economic recession of 2008, Graham built and sold his first company, something few entrepreneurs ever achieve. Since then, Graham has refused to rest on his laurels, and has developed a niche with direct-to-consumer marketing through e-commerce and direct-response marketing.
“Direct to consumer marketing will have exponential growth within the next few years. With more and more brands will be backed by investors as they continue to see how successful of a model direct to consumer is. We’re already seeing a few come into the space that have had multimillion dollar buyouts like Casper Mattresses,” Graham explains.
“Building an online business is simple, but not easy. But if you build great foundational skills to rely on, you’ll always be able to turn a bad situation to a good one… The biggest advice I could give is to just start as soon as possible. Try many things until one sticks. Don’t follow what you’re “passionate” about; follow what you’re good at. Then it will become a passion.”
Graham has become very good at operating with few resources alongside his business partner, Dante, stealthily helping brands in the health space master their marketing channels and quickly find customers, to the tune of over $5,000,000 in revenue while still in his 20s.
Graham proves that you don’t need giant investment checks or massive customer bases to build a business… you simply need passion, focus, discipline, and the ability to add value.
Today, Graham lives and works on the beach in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and is also an avid kickboxer. He’s living life on his terms, and helping his companies skyrocket one sale at a time.
