Hi, I’m AJ the digital maestro. I’ve over a decade behind the screen helping fortune 500 companies, celebrities, authors, CEOs, and business owners navigate the digital world.
2. How did you become a digital marketer? Could you tell us about your career journey, starting with your education?
I dropped out of college and got into over-the-phone sales for a real estate training company.
After that, I got another job working for a different sales training organization, but it failed.
I had lunch with an old high school friend of mine Neil Patel and he opened my mind to the internet.
He taught me how to blog and drive traffic to my website. He helped me partner up with his cousin Sujan Patel and we started working together at Single Grain.
After a couple of years, I left Single Grain and started working on my own venture, The Limitless Company.
We help professional creators dominate attention, command respect, and grow revenue.
