Known as the entrepreneur who successfully generated $20 million in sales, sold products to over 250,000 customers across 20 countries and built an organization of over 60 team members across the world in just a year, Kevin Zhang, co-founder and CEO of Kreative eCommerce, is now one of the youngest members of the Forbes Business Council and was recently proclaimed Rookie of the Year in eCommerce by Affiliate World. His achievements also led him to acclaim in the digital strategy and eCommerce community within his first year as an entrepreneur.
Zhang’s success story continues to be impressive and inspiring, with his business now at $30 million from its $3,000 humble beginnings, which he saved from his summer job before launch. He grew it to be so significant in a short amount of time with no experience and no stable income. His is another zero to hero story that’s being told from one aspiring entrepreneur to another who’s looking to be just like him. However, Zhang is different.
He tells people that his goal isn’t just to be successful, it’s to be significant and that to him, true significance can only be achieved by having a positive impact on others. He believes through eCommerce, he had a way to completely change his life and this disruptive business force is on its way to becoming one of the leading opportunity builders of his lifetime. He wants to make sure as many people as possible have access to it.
While Zhang continues to scale his business, he only spends an average of two to three hours a day engaging in his business and still generates eight figures. He spends most of his time working on other initiatives. He is currently building an eCommerce software for the mass market to help people navigate digital strategy and provide high quality ecommerce education to aspiring entrepreneurs. He also spends his time going to conferences, trainings, and seminars to provide useful insights to students and professionals. Not only has he been invited to speak at major international conferences such as Affiliate World and Affiliate Engine, he also runs Generation E, his free-to-join eCommerce education group with over 2,000 students. Through the group, Zhang releases educational content every week and already has a robust collection of success stories from many entrepreneur members from all over the world.
Zhang is inspired and committed to help others achieve their goals through entrepreneurship. He has come a long way since his humble beginnings to surpass many challenges to become the successful entrepreneur he is, and he wants others to turn their lives around just like he did.
