Isaac Mashman is a 19 year old entrepreneur, and visionary from Jacksonville, Florida who decided overnight to pack his suitcase and move to Bakersfield, California in July of 2019. Because of his past, Isaac has come to understand the value of hard work, but also knows that there was more to life than struggle. He was first introduced to entrepreneurship at the age of 17 as a senior in high school and has since worked on a clothing line, spent a year in network marketing and is currently running and operating his companies, Mashman Media and Mashman Coaching & Consulting. Isaac is also the host of The Hustler’s Choice Podcast, which was started to help people take their hustles and lives to unprecedented levels. Aiming for tremendous heights, he doesn’t see a limit to what can be accomplished, or what legacy can be left behind and is determined to have a monumental impact on the world.
Where do you see yourself? What’s your dream?
When I first started out in entrepreneurship, and building my brand, I was absolutely clueless as to what direction I was heading in. After being in the game for a couple of years, and having the (small) experiences I have, I now realize that the most important thing in life is being able to impact others and have a positive influence.
In the next several years I will be traveling all around the world speaking on stages, running successful 7-figure plus companies, and living the life of my dreams. My dream is to have all around complete freedom in every area of life, and to be able to help whomever I want, whenever I want.
A life entirely on my own terms.
What was your key driving force to become an entrepreneur?
At first it was the money. Growing up my family did not have a lot of money, and seeing my mom struggle as much as she did hurt me, but also made me realize that that was not the position I wanted to be in. The opportunities in today’s world and the overall concept of running companies without limitations appealed to me. I know that with hard work and continual growth as a man, son, entrepreneur and leader I will be able to retire her, and help the rest of my immediate family.
Although that is still one of the key driving forces behind getting started, the thought of inspiring people from all walks of life, employing others and helping the economy in the process makes me want to work even harder.
It’s difficult to narrow down just one driving force!
How do you market your business, and which tactics have been most successful?
Currently all of my business is done through word-of-mouth, local networking or direct messaging. Since I’m in the very beginning stages of Mashman Media, I am currently focusing on establishing credibility in the marketplace and getting the business out to more people. I don’t see the point of spending money on advertisements just yet, but could potentially do so in the future.
Do you believe there is some sort of pattern or formula to becoming a successful entrepreneur?
This is something that I’ve been thinking a lot about lately, and the only formula I can come up with is work, consistency and self development. I view success as the same thing as getting a six pack. Everyone knows how to get a six pack, yet they still go around looking for some secret diet pill. In reality plus or minus some things, all it takes is hard work, dedication and eating healthy. See the parallel?
What is the best advice you can give to aspiring entrepreneurs (or our readers)?
Surround yourself with good, positive and trustworthy influences. Do as much self development as you can, and do not be afraid of getting out of your comfort zone. As cliché as it may sound, the most growth that you could ever experience happens away from your comfort zone. There are so many things I could and want to say, but my other word of advice would be to follow your heart.
If you had a magic stick, which are the three things you would change in the world?
I would get rid of poverty on an international level.
I would provide 100% renewable energy, and focus on environmental improvements.
I would end hate in general.
