A little bit about me:
I come from a family of entrepreneurs and have been selling since I was about 7 years old. Although I didn’t technically write my first official advertisement until age 16, I’ve been marketing my own products and services for the last 26 years.
In 2006 I founded and was CEO of Superfood Snacks®. Superfood Snacks pioneered the world’s first compostable printed food package made from sustainably sourced materials. We were one of the first companies to launch organic raw chocolate snacks into stores like Whole Foods Markets.
Since 2006, I’ve been marketing behind the scenes in the natural foods industry. Starting in 2009 I started running Facebook advertising campaigns for Superfood Snacks. This was back before their was advertising allowed in the News Feed.
I promoted my own business and also helped dozens of other ethical entrepreneurs build bigger lists, improve their conversions, become #1 Best-Selling authors and dramatically boost their sales… and I might be able to do the same for you.

ADAM'S ENTREPRENEURIAL TIMELINE #LIFETIMEPRENEUR
I feel it's important to share somewhat of a "entrepreneurial timeline" per say - because I believe you should be asking the question what gives me the ability to teach what I teach.
The strange thing is that in 2016 there's a lot of folks that are teaching entrepreneurship that have never really been an entrepreneur or built an actual business through all the real up's and downs of the journey.
Teaching how to run a business without never actually running a business just doesn't make sense to me.
AGE 7-10 - Learned About Exchanging Value & Entrepreneurship
Growing up in an entrepreneurial home, for me it all really started when I was about 7 years old. Mom and Dad starting giving me allowance in exchange for doing extra chores around the house.
That's when I started to understand what exchanging VALUE was all about. That led to me asking Mom and Dad if I could take the snow shovel down the street and ask to shovel driveways for $10. They said yes!
So that's how it it went. Making money from allowance and shoveling drive ways, raking leaves, digging holes etc, and then taking the money I made and using it to buy packs and boxes of baseball, football and basketball cards.
AGE 10 - 16 - Baseball Cards, Football Cards, Basketball Cards
At about age 10, I was at a baseball card show vending a booth with my Dad when I asked if I could take come of the boxes of cards we had for sale and see if the dealers would buy some from me. About thirty minutes or so later I came back with about $100 and my Dad smiled and gave me more to go sell. I went back out and sold more and more.
That's when I learned I could sell stuff I was passionate about.
Age 16 - Started A Car Detailing Business
After I got my drivers license at age 16, the baseball card industry was starting to lose traction and I of course was starting to find new interests. Shortly after turning 16, I started an auto detailing business with my good friend Brad by making flyers with a cut out coupon and passing them out in grocery store, shopping mall and golf course parking lots.
It started by getting a few clients, which turned into more referrals and the business was officially born. I'm very grateful that my parents supported me by allowing me to use the garage and driveway as the work space.
A couple years in, my Dad even set up a heater in the garage for me so I could detail cars in the winter.
I eventually put in a bid at $11 a foot at an RV dealership to detail just the exterior of the big 44 foot Rv's. I got the bid and that turned out to be very lucrative, which let to a ton more business and customer service experience. It's really when I had my first official employee besides friends helping out for a few hours here and there at the beginning.
I was paying my friend $20 an hour to help me too, which at that time was huge.
Age 20 - Studied Marketing at ISU - Threw Weekly Parties for Cash
Went ISU (Illinois State University) to study marketing, however I majored in partying instead. I figured I could make a bunch of money and have the best time ever by having parties and selling cups of beer for $5… while I was getting A’s & B’s in business classes and C’s & D’s in every other class.
In the summers I came home and continued my car detailing business.
Age 21 - Printed 30,000 Concert Stickers & Sold Them While Travelling
Printed 20,000 concert stickers to sell to stores while traveling across the country seeing music and camping. This was a way to fulfill my desire to travel and see music in the summer while profiting from sticker sales throughout the journey.
Age 22 - Drop Out Of College
Drop of out college with with words of my Dad still present with me today. I told my Dad I feel I’m wasting his money and had a strong desire to make it on my own as an Entrepreneur. He said, I believe in you and if you can provide for yourself - more power too you.
Age 23 - Move To Colorado
This was my ski/snowboard bum phase, where I lived in Colorado for the Winter and came back home to continue my car detailing business and travel in the summer.
Age 25-27 - Traveled And Sold T-Shirts
Age 26 - Started & Managed A Band
I started a local Jam band and eventually 2 years in got kicked out because they said I was too focused on marketing the band and not focused enough on practicing (go figure). They were right. I wasn't meant to be a musician.
Age 27-30 - Made & Sold Jewelery
I started selling crystal jewelry and paying for more traveling by selling it along the way. I delivered pizza at night to make extra cash. To me, pizza delivery seemed to be the only way I could work for someone else, as it had a very entrepreneurial feel because I was basically on my own and got paid for performance.
Age 30 - Moved To Kauai & Founded Superfood Snacks®
I got fed up with the cold and took the plunge and moved to Kauai. Shortly after I started Superfood Snacks Inc. and we basically created the “Organic Raw Chocolate Snack Category” and got them onto the shelves of natural food stores across the country like Whole Foods Markets.
We used a heavy gorilla marketing strategy, combined with online social marketing strategies and in-store demos.
Age 30-39 - CEO Of Superfood Snacks®
From 2005 to 2013 I worked about an average of 14 hours a day building Superfood Snacks. We pioneered the worlds first organic raw chocolate snack packaged using biodegradable and compostable materials. We also help Guayaki Yerba Mate switch from their regular plastic packaging to the same sustainable packaging.
Age 37-Present - CEO Of Social Strategizer™
Around the end of 2012, I really started to learn more about myself and what I'm really good at. This lead to start my side hustle and launch Social Strategizer™
In 2013, with a mutual decision with my investors decided to shut down Superfood Snacks® and focus 100% on Social Strategizer®
Self-published a #1 Best Selling Book "Blend Your Way To Bliss"
In addition to being a Lifetimepreneur, since 2005 I’ve spent about $100,000 thousand dollars continuing my marketing education.
I continue to spend many hours a day studying and testing strategies so that I’m constantly up to date and stay ahead of the curve.
In 2005, we changed the natural foods industry forever and I plan on doing the exact same thing in the business community.
I have a vision to transform the business community. I believe in ethical entrepreneurship, where business owners actually care about their customers and making a real positive impact with their products or services.
I hope that I'm able to bring value to you in any way I can. Thank you for stopping by!
