Becoming an entrepreneur takes passion, commitment, and discipline. These qualities are all possessed by Brian Choi, an entrepreneur who runs a financial consulting business that helps people fix their credit while also helping them leverage their credit to create new streams of income.
In this article, Brian Choi talks about his brand, the inspiration behind it, the problems the brand aims to solve, and the skills that have helped him on his journey to success.
Tell me about yourself and your brand:
My name is Brian Choi and I run a financial consulting business that primarily targets Credit. My business partner and I run a mentorship program of over 100 students. We teach them things such as personal finance, credit, and many other topics related to Credit.
My brand is definitely something special to me because I’m able to help people change their lives. In our program, you’ll not only meet young entrepreneurs that are investing in themselves every day, you’ll meet people that are willing to help each other get everyone to the next level.
Our students are passionate about helping out each other.
Why do I have such high praise for our students?
Because at the end of the day, if you’re willing to help out each other, I truly believe that your return will be 10X.
What inspired you to create your brand?
Having no money and being in a lot of debt truly inspired me to create my brand. As a young entrepreneur, seeing all these “gurus” flashing their cars and money really made me work hard for things that I wanted.
My friends and family also had a big part to play. My dream was to take care of my family and friends and not have to worry about money.
I can say with confidence that the dream is slowly starting to come true. Even though I’ve failed at multiple businesses, the fire that burned inside of me kept telling me to never give up. It was my gut feeling that I listened to. I’m glad that I didn’t give up when times were tough.
What problems does your brand aim to solve?
My goal for this program is to help the next 10,000 people fix their Credit and help them leverage their Credit to create new streams of income.
Most Americans live paycheck to paycheck and COVID-19 has shown that. With millions of Americans claiming unemployment and filing bankruptcies, creating multiple streams of income will not only help you but your family in the future.
Everyone’s problem is not having enough money or enough time. But my program is simple and easy for anyone to understand. Even if you don’t know anything about Credit, you can jump in and start learning slowly each and every day.
One last thing I emphasize to my students is that they shouldn’t look for a “get rich quick” scheme. The reason I emphasize this is because so many of these so-called “gurus” claim that they’ll get you rich within the next 2 months with an initial investment of only $100.
Anyone who falls for these kinds of traps is obviously looking for the easy way out. Don’t be naive and fall for these traps. Nothing in life is easy. You must truly believe that you must work hard in order to live a comfortable life.
What special skills or attributes have helped you so far in your journey to success?
To be completely transparent, I don’t have any special skills nor do I have any attributes. I’m just a normal human being, just like the rest of the world.
One thing that kept me going was happiness. When you’re happy doing something, you don’t even realize that you’re spending numerous hours on your business.
I personally love the reaction on my client’s face when I fix their Credit and change their lives. Not only are they going to stop paying high-interest rates, but they’ll also be able to get lower interest rates, get approved for business loans, obtain credit cards, have better-negotiating power, and so much.
