As the world becomes more decentralized and accessible to everyday people, individuals around the world are realizing that they too can create income through their own brand or business. This realization has led to a recent wave of “digital CEOs” who build companies that replace the income they would be making with a normal 9 – 5 job. However, living the life of an entrepreneur isn’t as glamorous as people would like to believe. In reality, it is a life marked with extreme highs and lows and marked with uncertainty. Bryan Gorrita knows that, as an entrepreneur, if you want anything to happen, it’s up to you to make it happen.
Bryan is a second generation Cuban American born and raised in Miami-Dade. He grew up in a home of entrepreneurs, getting a firsthand look into what it takes to run a business and work hard at something that you believe in. What did he learn? It takes great personal sacrifice to reach your goals and a tremendous amount of self discipline. As Bryan was working his way through college, his family received devastating news in the weeks before he was scheduled to graduate. The home they were renting had been sold, and they were to move out immediately. “For a few months my family was separated, and we were living with other family members and close friends. While sleeping in my friend’s garage, I made a personal declaration to myself that I nor my family will never be placed in this situation ever again as long as I live,” says Bryan Gorrita.
In order to be truly free, Bryan believes you have to take personal responsibility for your financial future. Being a successful entrepreneur gives him the ability to create the life he desires. Bryan became a real estate agent operating in commercial and luxury real estate. This gives him the perfect platform to share his passion for helping others build their financial future. One thing he discovered is that having the right mentor is crucial to the success of any business. So, Bryan and his business partner also mentor other professionals through the BAR Agency. Their mentorship program teaches clients to develop a profitable brand built for scale. Through their new GOLDEN BAR Academy, agents can create a brand that generates multiple streams of income as well. By helping them scale their business, these entrepreneurs can generate 7 to 8+ figures.
For Bryan, the best way to grow your business is to grow yourself. Fear is only a sign that there is a weakness you need to address. The sooner you face your fears, the sooner you will find out what you are truly made of. “Every day, place yourself in uncomfortable situations that require you to grow. You’ll realize how liberating it is and all those negative thoughts you had before will all disappear. The mind is an interesting thing, and it will create narratives that aren’t true. You yourself must challenge those narratives every single day in order to find the truth in your journey,” says Bryan Gorrita.
An entrepreneur’s life isn’t all lavish, but it’s not all grind either. There’s a sense of pride in buying your time back and achieving the freedom that comes along with it. If you want to learn more about Bryan and to follow Bryan on journey, find him on Instagram @bryangorrita.
