Do you ever find yourself looking at the horizon – searching for that “Big break” in your career? What if that big break never comes? How will you respond? On this episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear from entrepreneur and business leader, Manuel Suarez. In his conversation with Jeremy, Manuel opens up about his struggle with drug addiction, how he ended up in the United States, what it takes to build an ecommerce business, challenges he has faced along the way, and much more. You don’t want to miss a minute of this fascinating episode featuring Manuel’s story! 

When did you get your big break in your career? Are you still waiting for it? Too often talented men and women find themselves on the sidelines waiting with bated breath for an opportunity to prove themselves. The truth is – if you wait for your big break – chances are, it’ll never come. Don’t wait for opportunity and success to fall in your lap – go out and make it happen! If Manuel would have waited for the right moment to arrive – he would still be doing drugs in Puerto Rico. Thankfully, Manuel was able to break out this unhealthy mindset and change the course of his life for the better. 

Can you imagine what it would take to go from the lowest point – addicted to drugs – to become a leader in the ecommerce and digital marketing community? The transformation that Manuel experienced sounds like something that only Hollywood could come up with, but it’s completely true! Manuel was stuck in a six-year pattern drug addiction and despair until his father called him on his 19th birthday. Manuel’s father guided him to find a solution to his pain and suffering – he packed up everything he had and moved to Mexico City. The plan worked, and Manuel was able to get completely free of drugs – to stay away from that life, Manuel chose to stay away from Puerto Rico altogether. 

Did you know that the key to business success is grabbing the attention of your audience? From Nike to Apple – leading brands know that if you can keep people focused on your brand and talking about it – that’ll translate to sales. For years Manuel’s father wanted to build a media channel that would support his business selling supplements – unfortunately, this plan didn’t work out. Eventually, Manuel stepped in and suggested to start creating content for YouTube to gain traction and continue to build his father’s audience. The YouTube plan worked out, and the subscriber numbers skyrocketed! 

These days – Manuel is focused on helping business leaders like you expand your reach and connect with your audience. From Manuel’s perspective – Facebook Advertising is the wave of the future. Gone are the days where commercials and billboards reign supreme – now is the era of marketing on Facebook and other social media channels. Does your business have what it takes to keep up with this new marketing trend? If you want to make sure your business stays ahead of the competition – reach out to Manuel and learn how to adapt his innovative approach!
