With a growing number of people embracing remote work and many companies hiring remotely, it’s no surprise that working from home has become more popular than ever. From freelancers and entrepreneurs to employees of large companies, many people are choosing not to commute long hours in order to get their daily tasks accomplished. It may seem like a dream come true for some but there are still those that doubt if this type of career can be successful.
Lorenzo Green is an entrepreneur who has built his businesses from the comfort of his home. Despite this unconventional work environment, Green’s businesses continue to flourish. Currently, he has co-founded and built 7 successful companies with 150 staff around the world. Through hard work and determination, he has proven that anyone can be successful without sitting in an office all day long.
When asked about his secret to productivity, he emphasizes the importance of managing your time and optimizing your life. Despite working from home, he still prioritizes sleep, health and family in order to be as productive as possible. His typical day starts at 7am in the morning and by afternoon, he makes sure that all his work is done.
From an early age, it seems that Lorenzo had a natural gift for entrepreneurship. At 16, Lorenzo had his first taste of success as a freelance graphic designer. By 17, he was already building and selling websites.
In his pursuit to learn more about the digital marketing landscape, he traveled across the world and attended a domain name conference in Seattle. This inspired 18-year-old Lorenzo to master SEO and Google Adwords. After finding his niche, he was well on his way to earning a full-time salary.
The past 2 years has been a trying year for many businesses, but Lorenzo has managed to turn his lemons into lemonade. Even though his physical conferences were canceled due to the pandemic, he pivoted his business into digital conferences and it took off–making it one of the largest online marketing conferences in the world. This is just one example of how this entrepreneur is constantly innovating and thriving despite adversity.
Lorenzo’s final advice to entrepreneurs is to embrace failure. The best way to learn is by failing. It’s a natural part of the learning process. If you’re not failing, you’re not trying hard enough. So don’t be afraid to take risks and put yourself out there. And who knows? You may just stumble on your next big idea in the process!
