Josh has always been a car fanatic. At 15 and 1/2 he bought his first car with cash, stopped hustling, and spent all his time, money, and effort from ages 15-17 modifying that car. And then, at 17, Josh was in a terrible car accident that left his car totaled.
His dreams were crushed. His ego was sent back to planet earth. He was laughed at and ridiculed.
But now, he realizes this is this best thing that has happened to him in his life.
Josh quickly moved forward and realized he needed to start earning money again, so he bought a 2002 Toyota beater truck with the money he had left over and started a fitness personal training business with his friend. They bought equipment and would load it in the back of the truck to travel to different locations to work with clients (who would only pay them $10/hr. for training).
Josh decided to double down on his fitness career, and he co-founded JetSetLift, a brand that revolved around fitness. Josh built an organic following of 20k+ followers on Instagram in only a few months using viral strategies, software, and paid promotions. Students at Josh’s high school used to make fun of him for spending $20+ bucks on Instagram, since it wasn’t “real.” Little did they know that after a few months of personal training and building this online brand, Josh was able to start an e-commerce business selling apparel capping him $100-200 dollars a day in revenue. This fitness brand was the “gateway drug” to receiving brand sponsorships, promoting affiliate offers, and selling merchandise
Josh decided to again quit trading his time for money and gave up the “personal trainer life.” He took his profits and got involved with the car flipping industry. He flipped cars from auctions on Craigslist with the help of someone he thought to be a “mentor” in the industry—until the guy ran away with $4,500 of Josh’s money.
Josh was devastated, betrayed, and, most of all, broke.
He decided to part ways with the industry and move on.
Josh was lucky enough to come in contact with Nick Luevano, one of Josh’s most valuable mentors. Nick took Josh under his wing and helped him build Team Jet Set’s foundation and guided him to $5,000 a month in profit while in high school via direct sales, marketing, and e-commerce.
Josh graduated high school, discovered affiliate marketing, and spent his entire 2016 summer and even his first few months of college putting his head down and working on his e-commerce and affiliate marketing business, sometimes spending 18 hours a day on it.
While at college, where he didn’t pay attention in any of his classes or remove his textbooks from their plastic wrappers, Josh created a software and social media management company that exploded and went viral online. He started college making $13,000/mo. which quickly scaled (within 4 months) to $27,000/mo., which is when he realized how much potential he had online and decided then to immediately drop out and go all in with entrepreneurship.
He really had no other option BUT to dropout. (It doesn’t help that Josh also had a 1.1 GPA and spent his only free time from his business with his frat bros instead of studying. #sigmapi )
Around this time, Josh bought the car he deserved (smart move) and started to splurge on designer merchandise (dumb move) and the lavish travel lifestyle (smart move), which led to his internet influence blowing up as people started to hear about his story and his ventures. Being one of the first & only individuals to advertise dropping out and making money online JetSet became the face for millennial college dropouts, which has now became a massive wave sweeping across social media.
