Today’s Episode Summary:
After achieving success in anything, have you ever asked yourself "what would be my next achievement"? If you haven't then you should better ask yourself this question because success is not a "once in a lifetime" kind of thing, it is a process that should continue with your life. My today's guest, Marco Robinson, is someone who kept achieving success again and again and did not stop himself on his very first success considering it “once and for all”.
Marco Robinson has a very impressive and long list of achievements but behind his successful life, there is a very difficult and challenging childhood. When he was 2 years old, Marco’s mother left Marco’s father and decided to go back to her family because Marco’s father was involved in gambling and had blown away her entire money. When Marco’s mother went back to her family, along with little Marco, her step-father thrown her out of the house and refused to shelter them. Afterward, the homeless mother and son started struggling for their survival, and meanwhile, his mother got married to a person who later on turned into a violent person. In this abusive environment Marco grew up as a traumatized and shy person, and then at the age of 15 an incident happened in Marco’s life that gave him courage to stand up against all odds of his life.
Marco wanted to change his life and wanted to achieve success so badly that he worked tirelessly to build himself and his business. Determined Marco started the journey from being a salesperson and with few years, with the help of a mentor, he changed his density forever and set himself on the path of achievements one after another. Marco says that his mentor gave him a book on sales called “bring out the magic in your mind” by Al Koran which proved as a real game-changer in his sales career.
Afterward, he built a strong reputation and received countless job opportunities from everywhere in the world. He was offered to run a public company in Malaysia which he accepted and started working in Malaysia. A few months later economy of Malaysia collapsed but regardless of that he turned this ordinary Malaysian company into a billion-dollar company.
Then another sequence of achievements began in his life; he started his own company that went successful, he wrote a book that became the best selling, he started his TV show "Get a House for Free” on Channel 4 TV Station in the UK (where he gives houses away to the homeless and underprivileged people). He also made a movie "Legacy of Lies” that stood 4th on NETFLIX and also won 19 awards and TEN for the best feature film of 2020.
He was also given the honorary title “knighthood” for helping the blinds in Malaysia to be allowed to keep guide-dogs in public places (that was not allowed in Malaysia before). This initiative started with a successful short documentary "Are You Blind" that attracted over 15 million viewers on Youtube and facebook. This documentary opened many new doors of opportunities for him and he also attracted a lot of fame and attention from the world.
Now, keeping pandemic in perspective, Marco has started mentoring people to start their online business; whether it is an eCommerce store, social media agency, or their own course. He has also created a course for actors and filmmakers who are struggling to get to the NETFLIX and a bigger screen. Marco is renewing his success again and again with every new era and setting an amazing example for the world.
