With the digital age in constant development, people’s lifestyles have started to grow accustomed to technology. For instance, the way people communicate with others has shifted from meeting them once or twice a week for lunch or sending them letters for updates to text messages that can be sent in just a blink of an eye.
Technology has indeed come a long way, so did society’s way of dealing with the world.
Businesses have also adapted accordingly to the rise of technology. For instance, instead of solely accepting cash as payment, many establishments are using cashless methods. Others have also welcomed the option of selling things online rather than maintaining a physical store.
These are innovative ways that treat technology as more like an asset than a liability. That is why for people like Marquiste Boyce, it should be treated as part and parcel when growing a business.
Marquiste Boyce is a digital entrepreneur. He owns numerous businesses and side hustles, but the most popular of them all is his passion project called the Side Hustle Mentor.
The Side Hustle Mentor is an avenue where aspiring entrepreneurs understand the basics of marketing. It helps businesspersons in taking care of their businesses, especially in developing their image, especially in the digital arena. Admittedly, many people find it difficult to understand technology. But Marquiste tries to simplify the subject using his platform. Through detailed video training and live coaching, Marquiste breaks down complicated topics involving technology to help his clients use automation in growing their businesses while manually working less.
However, Marquiste’s successes in the industry did not start with everything being handed to him.
Although he was raised in an environment where everything has to be worked for, Marquiste was the first of his generation to go to college. With a determination to alleviate himself from his former circumstance, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in the hopes of improving his financial status and climbing the corporate ladder.
When he realized how paying the bills has become the topmost priority of every entry-level working individual, somehow, he got lost along the way.
But the hope for a better life did not wholly escape from Marquiste’s goals. When he traveled to the Philippines to find solitude, he brought with him a book by Jay Abraham. While he was reading it, he stumbled upon an idea on how to transform his life from the corporate rat race to become a successful online entrepreneur.
Driven by his determination to succeed, he began his entrepreneurship journey by publishing a children’s book series called ‘Monster Kids Academy.’ But with the insufficient know-how to handle the industry, his venture became a failure.
But he never gave up. Learning from his mistakes, he spent countless hours learning business and marketing. By the time that he was well-equipped, he started small with mobile apps and affiliate marketing. Because of the attained steady growth, he then became a tech coach that gained much traction from aspiring entrepreneurs around the world. The business became a success that resulted in a $10,000 income milestone just after one month.
With the successes that he got over the years, Marquiste would always recall the struggles that he faced before he was able to attain his goals. He believes that by sharing his efforts with others, he could inspire others to persevere. By working hard and smart, other people can attain their goals in due time.
