How Murphy Thomas Has Over 1 Million Network At The Age Of 15

Many people feel that social media is just as it sounds, platforms to socialize. They are unacquainted with the potential of social media in building brands by engaging with the right audience. With a good strategy, there is no limit to how much you can grow your influence on social media. And it is true when they say; your network is your net worth.

 At just 15 years of age, Murphy Thomas is well-informed on social media. His interest in creating social following started when he was only 12 years old. He has already established a brand with over 1 million followers across multiple platforms like Instagram and TikTok. Besides, he is taking it a step further into the world of digital marketing. Not only is he earning an income from his social media, but he is also carving a career out of it. But how is Murphy getting it right so fast and at such an early age?

Having a Vision

From the beginning, Murphy knew what he wanted to do. He wanted to have many followers on social media. He had a vision and worked hard towards his goals. He started with a meme page where he would post daily. Day in day out, his followers grew. By having a picture of the results he wanted to achieve, he was able to work on the little goals he set along the way to get him to his destination.


There are always going to be challenges along the way. We need to know how to navigate through the challenging times and come out victorious. Murphy’s journey is not any different. He has to balance many tasks at once. And sometimes, he did not see the results he wanted. He gathered the courage to keep on pursuing his goals during those challenging times. One quote that encourages him daily to keep on pushing is: “Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes it’s the quiet voice at the end of the day whispering ‘I will try again tomorrow.” And this is how he finds himself pressing on.

Learning from others

Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in our little world, thinking we are the best. However, looking at what others who have been successful in the same field as you are is often beneficial. The truth is, there is always going to be something out there doing better than you. Instead of getting jealous of the competition, look at it as an opportunity to challenge yourself and learn and grow. Murphy is always a student of the world. He is not afraid of reaching out to people that are doing similar things as he does. He has been able to build long-term relationships, and even link with celebrities.

Building a Business

People who are passionate about something are full of enthusiasm, which then translate into a positive customer experience. Murphy loves building connections and adding value to others on social media. Monetizing his social media influence does not come at the expense of his vision. On the contrary, it allows him to continue growing his brand. Leading with passion has enabled him to establish his messaging, mindset, and energy which has attracted partners that relates to him.

It is interesting to see what one can do when they take the initiative to start something they are passionate about. Murphy is not slowing down. He has a vision and is building a venture out of it. Besides, he has the experience and knowledge to share.
