For the entrepreneur who is starting out, it’s all too easy to go down the rabbit hole of the Internet when it comes to advice. There are thousands of “how to” blogs, podcasts, and websites out there. Trying to decipher who to listen to is like trying to find the proverbial needle in a haystack. If time is money, no entrepreneur can afford to waste either. Look to these eight leading entrepreneurs who share their invaluable wisdom on social media

Charles Gaudet

Charles Gaudet takes pride in the fact that he has been a lifelong entrepreneur. After graduating college, he started a business that was nominated by Ernst & Young as “one of the nation’s best seed-stage companies.”

By the age of twenty-four, he had founded his first multi-million dollar business. After repeating that success multiple times and sharing his strategy with others, he founded Predictable Profits, a top coaching company for entrepreneurs, and was named the “The Go-To Business Coach for 7 & 8 Figure Businesses,” by The International Business Times.

Gaudet has helped companies earn a spot on Inc.’s 5000 Fastest Growing Companies List. He shares his experience and wisdom across multiple social media platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, X, LinkedIn, and YouTube.

Garrain Jones

Garrain Jones’ life was more than just going up the ladder of success. He spent years climbing up and getting knocked off that ladder, hard, for over two decades. After a tumultuous childhood and rocky young adulthood that included time in prison and living out of his car, a stranger changed his life. That chance encounter was an epiphany for Jones.

Transformation became Jones’ purpose, and through manifesting and mindset, he created a successful life and career. He helped his mom get her education, authored a bestselling book, married his soulmate, and bought his dream home. Jones’ mission today is to create a safe space for people to work with the gifts they possess to create extraordinary lives for themselves.

Jones has pioneered the practice of Artist Power to help others achieve that. He speaks, offers a popular retreat, and coaches one-on-one. Jones shares his wisdom with thousands across multiple social media platforms that include Facebook, LinkedIn, X, TikTok, and YouTube. 

Alex Hormozi

Alex Hormozi is a first-generation Iranian American entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist. In 2013, Hormozi went from one brick-and-mortar business to six locations three years later. After selling those locations to transition to the turnaround business, he helped turn around thirty-two brick-and-mortar businesses using the same model that made his locations successful.

While Hormozi continued on this path of scaling and exiting companies, his most notable exit remains the majority sale of his licensing company for $46.2 million in 2021. He is known for his expertise in customer acquisition and monetization.

Hormozi shares that expertise across various social media platforms that include Instagram, X, Facebook, TikTok, LinkedIn, YouTube, and The Game Alex Hormozi, his podcast on Spotify.

Codie Sanchez

Codie Sanchez has been described as a formidable force in the world of finance. Having witnessed her immigrant parents living paycheck to paycheck, Sanchez became determined to empower marginalized people. She took her journalism degree and ran down the finance path with the goal of learning how to earn more money so she could help others do the same.

After witnessing the devastation of the fiscal crisis of 2008, Sanchez mastered the financial industry through the ranks of Goldman Sachs and State Street. Over the following decade, she bought, built, and invested in businesses from cannabis to laundromats. Her entrepreneurial skills and her rejection of the tried and true led to the founding of Contrarian Thinking.

Sanchez shares her wisdom with millions across multiple social media platforms that include TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. 

Soli Cayetano

Soli Cayetano’s successful foray into real estate began during her college years. She began in office leasing at a commercial real estate firm during her second year. It was during her senior year, the year the pandemic hit, that Cayetano learned her biggest lesson. Commission-based, her income dwindled as the country shut down.

Cayetano’s goal was to find out how to build passive income streams so that if this happened again, she wouldn’t be without money coming in. She turned to the Internet for help and found Bigger Pockets and its stories of successful real estate investors.

Knowing the area where she grew up was too pricey to start, she looked to Cincinnati for her first rental property purchase. Then twenty-two, she signed her first mortgage without a co-signer thanks to her work history and having had a credit card for four years. Bought sight unseen, she flew out to do the renovations on her first property herself.

Since then, she has used the BRRR method – Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat – to grow her real estate portfolio. She hit her goal of $100k in passive income by age twenty-six. Cayetano shares her experience and wisdom across multiple social media platforms that include Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok, and Facebook. 

Rich Somers

Rich Somers walked away from a comfortable job and pension he’d held for over a decade while knowing he wouldn’t reach his full potential there. With his 401K and a new dream in his pocket, he knew he had much to learn if he was going to succeed in real estate investing and entrepreneurship.

Somers says that an entrepreneur can learn all the strategies there are, but if you don’t learn how to lead people, you will not be able to scale a company. Somers also believes mindset is a huge factor in becoming an entrepreneur.

Taking his lessons from the bestselling book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Somers took action and implemented his plan. Shifting career goals and changing the way he thought changed his life. Somers is a CEO and founder in the real estate industry.

Financially free and in charge of his own time and when he works, Somers has set his sights on doubling his real estate investment. Somers shares his unique wisdom across social media platforms that include Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, X, YouTube, and The Rich Somers Report podcast.

Meet Kevin

Kevin Paffrath, or Meet Kevin as he is known all over the Internet, was born in Germany and moved to America as a toddler. His high school plan to become a police officer took a sharp turn, however. It was getting his real estate license during his first year in college that changed his direction.

At nineteen, he became a real estate investor alongside his now-wife Lauren. Six years later, Paffrath found YouTube and began his journey as Meet Kevin, sharing his experiences and blunders that quickly expanded to include investment advice and general financial news.

Today, the Paffrath Organization owns more than twenty-two properties they have renovated and rented. Paffrath shares his wisdom across social media platforms that include his popular YouTube channel, Instagram, X, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
