8 Crazy Services Every Millennial Entrepreneur Should Be Using

There are a few companies really disturbing the business world, but more importantly, the way we live our daily lives. It’s super hard to get out of our old ways, but lately I’m finding that it’s harder to fight it than to just use these wonderful tools.

As much as I hate to admit it, they really do make things easier. It’s time to embrace these new companies that are really pushing the boundaries because they are here to stay! The future is here. Here are the companies that are changing the way we live, work, and play:


Velocity Black is one of the new subscriptions that I am interested in. It’s a fun service for millennials. No, seriously, its a fun service. Check out this cool vid:



You can use this app to order your groceries. Who likes going to the store anyway? It’s such a chore. Check this out:



Tesla just dropped yet another game-changing vehicle. The 250 MPH coupe, and a semi truck. While many people will be excited about the coop, I am more excited about the semi truck. Here’s why: Walmart has reportedly already ordered five semi trucks which is interesting, because it is a real life example of how transportation is about to change. People think that old industries will go away with the advancement of the Internet and technology. But, no matter how many things you are online, somebody still has to deliver them. Which makes the transportation industry the future of wealth creation and tesla CEO, Elon musk, knows this, man.

Here’s the thing, with 5 models now, everyone can get a Tesla. A Tesla model 3 is $28,000 after tax credits, which is cheap AF for a car that drives itself, and lets you stay productive (use your phone without looking) on the road. Check it out at


It’s a new kind of money. It’s all virtual, and it’s giving the people back control of their money. Came out in 2009 during the financial meltdown, which was perfect timing.

It allows you to send virtually any amount of money to anybody in the world without a trace, without the wait, without the bank, and without the fees. Bitcoin is making a lot of people rich too. It debuted at $0.17 and is now worth $8000. For more information on Bitcoin, and how it works, register for my free bitcoin webinar on how $300 in bitcoin can change your life forever…



Your private driver.

We all know about this app by now. Uber lets you skip the cab and ride in style by delivery if a car and driver to your location. Just use their app. Most of my friends are millennials and have been in more Uber’s than grocery stores, but if you’re reading this to get a grip, check this video out:



Have you ever seen those young ass kids flying on private jets? Chances are, they are using this. This is the sickest app, you may not have heard of. It’s called JetSmarter, and it’s Uber for private jets. For $5000 a year you can take a private jet anywhere 3 hours from your house (driving hours). For $15,000, you can go anywhere in the world pretty much. With flights from NY to London, London to Moscow, and Moscow to Dubai.

You may be thinking $15,000?? 🤔 But, here’s the thing, traditional private jets are $20,000 round trip from Atlanta to Miami – one time. Make sense now? And it’s unlimited. Just pick a seat and go. First seat is free, additional seats are extra. You can even reserve the whole plane.


f you get tired of sleeping in hotels,AirBnb let's you rent an entire home for the same price, and do it all from your phone. Get with it. https://youtu.be/dA2F0qScxrI


WARBY PARKER<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
ut Warby on the list but I think they deserve a major shoutout because they are not actually a tech company like the rest of the companies on this list. Warby Parker actually makes sunglasses and eyeglasses. But, they have embraced technology like no other. In their app you can now find a perfect pair of shades using the iPhone X's Face ID. You don't even have to go to the store. If that's not enough, you can try on the pair in real life and keep them for 7 days before you pay for them. Insane. Check this out:


IN CONCLUSION<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
ber to your vacation home, party all night in some cool shades, all in time to come home to fresh groceries that your paid for all in Bitcoin. Crazy right?

You couldn’t imagine what I had to do to make my first $100k…

Where do I begin… A lot of times I don’t post pictures about the grind because most people don’t care about the actual work. They just want to see the cars and clothes. But I know there are some real hustlers out there who will appreciate this.

You couldn’t imagine what I had to do to make my first $100k…

• I had to sell pest control do door-to-door to learn how to sale my ass off. 😂

• I had to work at a car dealership to learn how a dealership works before we launched our own. (Software, Vendors, Training Manuals, Steps to the Sale, Finance and Insurance)

• I had to work at T-Mobile to learn cash handling procedures and retail. (Schedules, Cash delivery, holiday promotions)

• I had to go and get a couple stripes. I joined the Air Force to finish school for free. (Travel the world, Exposure to other cultures)

But no one sees that part. They just see the outcome. What I am trying to say is, You’re going to have to go though HELL and back to achieve your goals.

You have to be willing to do whatever it takes. Make sure you are doing what is best for you before you splurge. 1000% Lock in the life you want before you worry about impressing others.

If that means that you can’t go to a party, or on dates, or buy that car you want then so be it. You’ll be able to do all of that stuff when you get your money right.

Go and get your money right. By any means. Forget what people will think.

MASTER this and you will become unstoppable. 💯

How to get an American Express Blackcard (without actually being rich). 


American Express Black card
The American Express Black card is the last word.
The American Express Black card is the last word. If you whip that bad boy out and toss it on the table at your favorite restaurant, no one will question whether you can leave a nice tip. It has a Minimum spending limit of $1M… I really don’t know what you would use the card for – other than to stunt! But, if you’ve always dreamed of owning one, here’s how you do it without turning 80 first:

The Requirements:

The American Express Black card is the most sought after credit card, however most people are clueless as to what it’s like to get one. Only 1% of society has one in their wallets. This credit card has the highest credit limit of our credit cards. The black card has a minimum credit limit of $1 million and higher. 

American Express requires that you first be a member with an American Express card to qualify for the black card. Secondly, it requires that you spend $500,000 (now $250,000) within one year’s billing cycle.

For most people when they hear that they must been $500,000 within a 12 month period, they consider themselves never qualifying for a black card. However, consider the strategy involving $25,000 as an investment.

American Express Black card 
Part 1: The Deposit

Deposit $25,000 on a secured American Express card. American Express allows you to deposit $300-$25,000 on there secured cards. The strategy is to deposit the maximum on a regular card, then withdraw $10,000 each month and pay it back on time… Monthly. After 12 months or one year of on time payments, the regular American Express card which was originally a secured card, Will automatically become an unsecured credit card with doubled the amount of the deposit as the new credit limit. The Centurion bank, which owns American Express, will return your original deposit after 12 months. The new card will come in the mail and will be a gold card and it will receive a $50,000 credit limit.

Within the first year you invested the $25,000 and made on time payments withdrawing $10,000 each month and sending the money to your checking account each month, then setting up automatic bill pay to send the money back to the credit card on his due date. This has now qualify you to receive the gold card, which is unsecured, meaning it has the banks money on it, with doubled the amount of your original deposit.

The next 12 month will determine whether you are invited to become a black card member.

Part 2: Flip it

Now that you are a gold card member you will need to spend $500,000 within the next year. The billing cycle for American Express begins in January and ends with the month of December so between this time. You will need to spend half of $1 million to qualify for the black card. 

This time you will need to withdraw the whole amount each month. This means you will need to spend the $50,000 each month. This time it will not be enough to simply move money off the card into your checking account and return it to the card. This time the strategy changes because the banks are aware that the wise consumers don’t really spend their money of their credit cards anymore, but rotate the money to go off their cards each month into a checking account, then they send it back to the credit card on his due date. This practice cause they’re F.I.C.O scores to rise each month, and keeps the carts from becoming inactive. 

However, the strategy this time is to actually spend the money off the credit cards, buying items valued at $50,000 each month.

So, what items can you buy using your American Express Gold card, which you can later liquidate back into cash?

Part 3: American Express travelers checks

Every month buy $50,000 in travelers checks, then deposit them into your checking account on the credit cards due date send the $50,000 payment back to the card. Repeat this for 12 months and you would have spent a total of $600,000 in one years time.

At this point, you have spent over the $500,000 that it takes to become an invited member of the black card. However, you did it without actually spending a dime of the credit on real items. You bought travelers checks, as a form of currency, which American Express sales, and turned them back into cash.

Part 4: The fun part

Within a few weeks, expect to receive an invitation in the mail to become a black card member. The invitation really is a pre-approved credit offer. Just sign it and return it in the mail. The card will come within two weeks. Your credit limit on the card will be at least $1 million!

Warning: whatever amount that you spent on the black card will be due in full on the first of the month, so use it wisely. 😁

The whole process takes two years.
