When considering entrepreneurship, we tend to think more in terms of networking, social skill, business orientation, etc. We rarely consider it as a mark of creativity, and yet, as any good entrepreneur will tell you, you need a certain level of creativity to become successful. At its core, that’s what entrepreneurship is all about – knowing how to seize opportunity and make your own path in life. Which is precisely what Aidan Ranzieri excels at.
Digital Businesses Future
Hailing from Naperville, Illinois, Aidan Ranzieri knew early on in his life that his future would be digital. At just 13 years old, he launched his first online business, an ecommerce dropshipping website, that already showed great promise and vision, on the part of this young man. In love with the digital world and the endless opportunities it presented, Ranzieri put his creativity to the test. Though his ecommerce business was short-lived, he went on in 2018 to co-found his own fitness brand, Achedaway, and then in 2020, started his own social media growth brand, Next Level Growth Agency. In the meantime, he also somehow managed to turn himself into a TikTok personality, attracting millions upon millions of viewers and loyal followers.
And what does that tell us about this young man? First, that he is incredibly prolific and energetic. Many teenagers barely find the energy to get out of bed, let alone launch multiple successful businesses. Yet it’s not his energy alone that he credits for his success, but rather his inclination toward creativity.
Setting Creative Goals
“I attribute a lot of my success to goal setting and being creative. I love to set goals on a physical calendar, in order to wake up every day and take a look at where I want to be. Most of the time it’s like a competition with myself. It keeps me motivated and on track to be who I want to be.”
It’s perhaps this sense of creativity and achievement-orientation that has made Aidan into one of the most trusted entrepreneurs and social media experts on the market today, bringing him a wide and impressive array of successful clients. But what keeps them staying is Ranzieri’s passion for human connection. At the Next Level Growth Agency, it’s not just about having success, it’s about establishing a long-term personal connection with the client. Because that, according to Ranzieri, is the only way you can truly grow in this business.
“Don’t chase the money, really focus more on relationships than chasing the money. If you’re working hard and you’re building a network, your net worth will grow. That is so much more important than quick money.”
After all, it’s the ultimate mark of a creative spirit to focus more on the work and the journey, rather than the end goal or the financial benefit. It’s clear to see, not only from his success, but from the way he carries himself in conversation, that Ranzieri enjoys what he does, and that’s precisely the attitude needed to succeed in the long term.
