To go from broke to wealthy, Seth Kniep, Co-Founder of ‘Just One Dime,’ had to overcome major obstacles. At his lowest point, Seth was broke in his finances and his marriage, using his salary raises to fund his coffee addiction. He worked for Apple, yet despite outperforming 800 coworkers in the sales department, he never could get ahead, living from one bill to the next.
One day Seth reached a breaking point. He turned to his wife, “I’m building a new life for our family.” He began to research how to build other income streams. That’s when an idea spawned that would change his life:
Seth turned his dime into $400 just from asking random people he met downtown. Seth invested this money into a store on Ebay and then Amazon. Through trial and error, his Amazon store slowly began to grow until his single dime turned into more than $100,000 in just 6 months. This led Seth to quit his job at Apple, and just a few months later, he reached the $1M revenue goal.
The biggest change Seth experienced, however, was not inside his bank account but inside his heart. Seth realized that building a business required taking ownership for his own life and character faults. At times, it was heart-wrenching but today he shares that he wouldn’t trade it for anything. People began to seek his advice for selling on Amazon so Seth began to help them. He slowly discovered he had a passion to coach people. Seth shares:
Today, Seth and his team have taught entrepreneurs in 150+ countries how to build a new life even if they have to begin with something as small as a dime. To date and counting, they have trained 27 students into becoming millionaires and continue to inspire individuals to create a life that allows them to enjoy freedom.
Seth has consulted with Amazon, worked with one of Shark Tank’s sharks, and trained top businesses in multiple countries. Today, Seth’s business runs a full time sourcing team in China and manages over 100 million in annual Amazon revenue for name brands and silent investors. This year, Seth and his team are building businesses for people with capital who don’t want to go through the hassle of learning how to sell on Amazon.
Seth started with just a dime. No matter how little you have to start with, you can build your life into something so much more if you are just willing. Seth shares:
