Meet Patrick Corsino: The Digital Entrepreneur Who Set Out To Fix The Education System

It is common understanding that it is safe to think small and dream small. Nonetheless, many who have succeeded actually argue that it is crucial to think big and dream big. An example of this is Patrick Corsino.

Patrick Corsino is a digital entrepreneur. He works in the information product and service business, where he helps people start and scale an online business. But before getting here, Patrick had to grow up and gain experience that would guide him to what he wanted to do with his life.

“I would never do well in school. I could get good grades if I tried but I was never motivated enough. It felt like we were always learning things that would not matter, but not learning the skills to make and multiply money (taxes, accounting, credit, investing, etc.)” Patrick shares. “While studying electrical engineering at Virginia Tech and working as a waiter at a restaurant, I spent all my free time learning all about the different types of online businesses.”

After taking several courses, Patrick started his first ecommerce business. Once he made his first sale, he instantly identified the potential and decided that this was what he was meant to do. He went on to do affiliate marketing in addition to scaling his ecommerce brand, and even taught himself how to trade cryptocurrency, while building his personal brand on YouTube and Instagram.

“Once friends and family started noticing I was making money, they all started asking me to teach them. I realized I had a passion for helping others and seeing them succeed.” Patrick adds.

Patrick was motivated to get started with his business after getting tired of seeing people go from a “flawed education system into being unhappy in their jobs” and never truly living the life they dreamed of. He knew from the beginning he was not meant to go down in the traditional way.

When starting a business, there are two big challenges according to Patrick. The first one is education; because the education system is flawed and will not give you the skills to improve yourself or your finances.

“It is important to find a mentor who can offer you knowledge based off their past experience that will help you get where you want faster.” Patrick says.

The second big challenge is not starting. Patrick argues that most people spend their whole lives waiting for the “perfect time” to start their business. But Patrick believes there is never a perfect time, it is about starting and fixing whatever problems you run into. Mindset can help tackle this.

“Mindset is everything. One thing I learned early on from my mentors is to always think big. Most people think small and dream small because that is what they see everyone else do. Most people who have achieved any level of success started off in positions similar to all of us.” Patrick adds. “I believe what separates the most successful people from the mediocre is their ability to think big and take calculated risks.”

Patrick’s advice to those trying to start their own business is to find someone who is further ahead than you are and get them as a mentor. He advises to see what they do, how they act and how they think.

Now that Patrick is getting closer to attaining success, he can look back and identify fear as a fun place where uncertainty meets opportunity, and success is having no regrets, waking up every morning excited for the future.

Patrick’s next projects include perfecting a system to help people start and scale their online businesses. He will continue to differentiate himself from his competition through his honesty.

“I put the customer first and deliver the best customer service. Most people put on a persona or try to act above their wage in order to try to prove something. I will always give everyone the truth no matter how harsh it is.” Patrick concludes.

His worst nightmare is having to look at his partner or kids and say “I can’t afford that.” Patrick is also an ordinary guy who likes to watch sports, play video games and travel. To follow him, go here.
