D’Andre Saxton is most definitely not your average entrepreneur.
But he did start as one. D’Andre has been an entrepreneur since age 19, experimenting with businesses such as network marketing, Amazon sales, operating a Shopify store, dropshipping, and more.
He recounts, “I probably failed at eight different businesses–literally. I averaged $2,000-$5,000 a month, inconsistently, and was also sleeping in my car back in 2018 for about four months. It was a crazy time in my life.”
D’Andre decided to turn a corner few entrepreneurs turn after noticing a pattern of inconsistency in his businesses. “I thought I needed another business model; another job; another agency. I was doing everything and was making money, but it was never consistent. I would launch a business and make $10,000 my first week. But then I wouldn’t make anything for the rest of the year. It was so inconsistent and I thought the problem was my business. In reality, the problem was myself.”
The last four lines of the previous quotation sum up the beginning of D’Andre’s transition to epic entrepreneur, a transition few in his shoes are willing to take. Most entrepreneurs think they need to master a new set of techniques in sales, marketing, PR, and more, in order to explode to a higher level. In actuality, what is often required are a few small but pivotal mental changes and commitments.
“If you were to meet me when I first attended [my first business growth] event back in January 2020 — I had a nice suit and drove an Audi— I looked the part. I never knew we had an internal self-image, and it was because of my internal self-image, that I wasn’t allowing myself to become successful.”
Once Saxton revolutionized his internal image toward becoming endlessly obsessed with his goals and the individual methodologies behind achieving them, instead of just “hustling” without a precise goal each day, this transformed his mindset and lifestyle.
Case in point: toward the end of 2019, Saxton was essentially living in poverty in San Diego. By the first quarter of 2020, he had started a business and grossed an unfathomable $350,000 in revenues.
Today, D’Andre Saxton is quickly growing as a business coach and works with a steadily increasing clientele using the techniques of his mentor, Bob Proctor.
