Kingsley Asonye had a plan for his life, or at least he thought he did. Until the opportunity of a lifetime came calling and he had to decide once and for all if he was going to open that door and walk through it to his success. Today he’s here to share his entrepreneurial journey of taking risks for rewards with us.
So Kingsley, let’s start at the beginning of your path. What first inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
“I actually graduated from school with a computer engineering degree in 2019. My whole mindset at the time was to get a good career going. But, once I graduated, my mindset completely shifted. I had a lot of student loans to pay back. I decided that I needed to find a way to be a millionaire. Growing up, I watched Michael Jordan, and Charles Barkley play ball and today they’re all successful entrepreneurs. If these people that looked like me could do it, I was going to match their success. I was already interested in Forex and everything just took off from there.”
That’s very motivational. Tell us about the business you’ve created to date. What is the concept?
“I’m a part of a platform that teaches individuals all around the world how to trade in the financial markets. We trade Forex, cryptos, and binary options. We also have the opportunity to have an e-commerce business. Now there is also a marketing side to the platform. It allows you to have a residual income portion where you can build a seven or eight-figure organization. You have thousands of people on your team doing exactly what you’re doing so they can get the same results. It’s a network marketing platform fused with an educational platform. I love it. It’s changed my life.”
That’s amazing, Kingsley. How else does this multi-faceted business help people?
“I have a lot of people on my team. I’ve been in this position since January 2020. I’ve had testimonials from people telling me how they’re able to pay off their student loans. Which is so huge to do early in life. I paid off $10,000 off of student loans, just with trading. This skill is changing people’s lives every single day. You can make money from your home, that’s the best thing in the world. To me, it isn’t about the money, if I can put a smile on someone’s face from learning these concepts and changing their life, that’s what this is about.”
Sounds like you are doing extremely well for yourself. I’m sure your success hasn’t come without a few setbacks along the way. What kind of adversity did you face growing up and in growing your business?
“Growing up, I had a rough childhood. I didn’t think like everybody else. Everybody just looked at me differently. For kids, that is not easy. I was being picked on every single day, but that built my character. In terms of business, I could definitely say being a part of a network marketing company exposes a lot of your flaws to you. The trading adversities I’ve faced, fear and greed. People don’t understand their own fear and greed. I had to take time to understand where my own fear and greed were coming from.
As far as the network marketing aspect, I would say the biggest thing is being able to, as a leader, work with different personalities. Having a high emotional intelligence. I had to learn that through my own personal development and reading.”
Sounds like you’ve grown quite a bit from the start of your journey until now. So Kingsley, with your business growing, what are your goals for the future, personally and in business?
“I want to be a master trader. Coming from an engineering background, I love looking at the charts, I like to break things down and figure out what is the best thing to do within this particular market. Basically, though, I want to be able to do things with my money so I can give back, I know how powerful that is. There are so many people that are stuck in poverty unnecessarily, I definitely want to have a seven-figure business. I could change things for so many people.”
I have no doubt you’ll achieve everything you put your mind to! Let’s close things off with your best advice for the aspiring entrepreneur.
- Believe in yourself – In order to receive the rewards you are aiming for, you must believe in your abilities and who you are as a person. If you do not have this prerequisite to start off with, you won’t get very far.
- Mindset – To paraphrase Les Brown, You must vibrate at the level of abundant prosperity in order to bring that into your life. I have personally experienced this multiple times in my life. It works both ways too. If I am constantly thinking about fear and doubt, I’m going to constantly receive that in my life. What you program yourself to believe is what you will manifest in your life.
- Get out of your comfort zone! – Before this amazing opportunity came into my life, I wasn’t the person that would walk up to a stranger and just start talking. It was not where I was comfortable. I had to get rid of the fear of failure, the fear of rejection. Once you move through your fear, you realize that was the scariest part. You cannot get anything you really want in life, by just being comfortable. If you want to be extraordinary, you have to start doing extraordinary things.
