They say that if your dreams do not terrify you, they are insufficiently grand. James Mackay, an Australian self-made businessman, is well aware of this fact.
The former labourer turned entrepreneur fought for years to make ends meet for himself and his family. His ambition has always been to run a successful business that he is passionate about.
James opened Elevate after years of failures in business. An influencer company that acts as a liaison between businesses and celebrities.
The idea that initially seemed absurd generated a half-million dollars in its first year.
James started his new business with only his laptop and no money, which is astounding.
What he lacked in capital, he made up for with perseverance.
Working with some of the world’s most renowned celebrities, he quickly earned a stellar reputation among industry leaders.
James is an inspiration for the millennial generation. His story demonstrates that if you think outside the box, you can succeed in life.
