The entrepreneurial journey of Joshua Bert Gabie has had its ups and downs. As a child he was always fascinated with making money. Even though he was shy, when he opened up, people often laughed at his antiques and jokes. It was a playful time. Being so driven and bold at a young age his mom always reminded him everything happens at the right time, you have to be patient. As a child he was involved in Acting, Modeling, Boxing, Karate, Bmx racing, Played Bass Guitar, Basketball, Video games, Watched WWE.
“It’s funny because looking back at it now I would definitely tell my younger self, to focus more on self-education than post-education, and to pursue your dreams at a younger age, no matter what anyone says, just do you.” — Joshua Bert Gabie
Joshua’s journey didn’t really begin until he got into door to door sales. Even though he was really good at what he did, his career required long hours, sleepless nights, without any stability or structure. He was always on the road, never in one location, it got so bad he couldn’t even keep a solid relationship.
He wanted to be an example of what is possible not only to the people surrounding him but also his family. He didn’t want to worry about how he was going to eat, where he was going to sleep, & how he was going to pay his bills.
Deep down he was torn. His self belief, confidence, and sometimes even his ethics were questioned.
“Sometimes as a door to door salesman, even though your providing quality products and services to people, the reality is sometimes your team leader and mentors ask you to do things that make you question your ethics. Its a cold world…” — Joshua Bert Gabie
Shortly after a car accident in 2016 that took away his ability to walk, a good friend and business partner Nii-Nortey Engmann introduced him to the world of digital marketing and e commerce, it was everything that he was looking for.
The Plan was simple, drive as many people as he could, to a website using social media and the internet. With his door to door experience applied in the digital world, It should have been a piece of cake.
What he didn’t realize was even though there is a lot of promise in the digital marketing space, there is little known about the behind the scenes workings that build a successful online business. Long story short, after many mentors, masterminds, classes and books Joshua’s two year journey of digital marketing has now brought him places, that he couldn’t of imagined.
And rubbed shoulders with 6,7, and 8 figure earners. He has also been able to have surreal experience things such as, staying in 7 million dollar mansions, Meeting his favorite Band Member and Entrepreneur from Kiss, Gene Simons, Mike Tyson, Lil Jon, Tiesto, T.I, Designer, Reese Laflare, ASAP FERG, Will Smith, Jason Derulo, Lance Stephenson, Adrienne Broner, being invited to Pdiddy’s house to Launch a New Campaign with Justin Combs for his brand, The New Rich.
“You know meeting all these people and having all these experiences is wonderful but the reality is, it’s the person you become on this journey that matters most.” — Joshua Bert Gabie
