Starting and building a successful venture is a process. It is a journey often filled with unexpected challenges and fears, making it harder to attain your set goal. But without these hardships, there would be nothing to challenge us and even push us to step out of our comfort zones, a concept proven by successful entrepreneur Brian Waldron.
Brian is a real estate investor, digital entrepreneur, and e-commerce expert who has built successful ventures at just 26 years old. Brian runs one of Brooklyn’s largest event spaces, providing people with space and equipment to host events like parties, weddings, and baby showers. Brian owns 3 event spaces, furniture items, a truck, and a 3,000-square-foot warehouse to keep and showcase his inventory. He also manages several e-commerce stores and Airbnbs.
His entrepreneurial skills, resilient spirit, and go-getter attitude have helped him stand out from the competition and even build an empire at 26 years old. But his journey has not been all glamorous.
Brian developed an interest in entrepreneurship at a young age. Still in school, he was already selling candy. Brian also sold cards, using the money he earned from these two ventures. He started sneaker reselling, which he did for years. But this is not the end of his journey. Brian served tables at an Italian restaurant before his family moved to Queens, and Brian joined the family business.
Brian’s family owned a smaller event space located in Brooklyn, where Brian helped out occasionally. The experience working in this new industry motivated Brian to start his own venture. Brian noted that few companies offered event paces in Brooklyn, and even with these, most didn’t have large enough spaces.
He then began his event space company, and within one year, Brian acquired 3 event spaces. He quickly rose to the top, seeing he offered something many didn’t have. Brian and his team were servicing hundreds of events in NYC. This gave him enough resources to start something else, and Brian ventured into real estate and e-commerce.
Unfortunately, COVID hit, gatherings were banned, and Brian’s business crumbled. His spaces were not getting any bookings, and although he had real estate and e-commerce, he wasn’t earning as much as he used to.
Brian wanted to ensure his income was not affected and quickly transitioned into teaching. Brian Waldron launched a Zoom class, teaching people various ways to grow their passive incomes. Through his teachings, Brian breaks down the entire process from how to start, scale, and automate your own event space. He also uses his journey and the lessons learned to help other entrepreneurs grow their ventures.
A strong believer that one source of income is close to none, Brian is teaching people how they can grow their passive income by creating their own opportunities. He has so far helped thousands succeed with their very own event spaces. Brian is also looking to build a school that will train young adults about several sources of income and helps them better prepare for the outside world.
Brian Waldron has built a successful empire at 26 years old, but none of this would have been possible if he had given up every time he encountered an obstacle. Instead of focusing on what he lost, Brian used the challenges as a stepping stone.
