Ep.272 ~ Building a 7-Figure Events Business for Millennials ~ JF Brou
~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Location Independent Entrepreneurs That Have Over $1,000,000 in Annual Revenue
Some of my favorite podcast guests are young entrepreneurs that started off with an idea, a dream, and nothing to lose. They then get to work and start up their business. I really think this a special time in entrepreneurs lives when they are incredibly optimistic about what is possible and they tune out the background noise to build something that will change their life forever.
Today’s guest is JF Brou and he did just that. JF just turned 30 and has already started six businesses one of them hitting over $1,000,000 in its third year. JF is the founder of Interstude, Exchange Your Life, Rep Your Flag Festival, Poutine Canada, TravelReadyStore.com, and Oui Are Entrepreneurs. All of these businesses are about creating experiences for the 19 - 24 age range of millennials to travel and create lifelong memories.
JF and I chat about how he built his businesses up, going through the hard times being a young bootstrapper, redesigning his business models to be location independent and the mentality shift needed to reach 7-figures.
