So, you're probably wondering who is this Gabriel Both anyways? And what makes him qualified to talk about what he does?
I'm glad you asked, because it's important to know who you're learning from. After all, you don't want to assimilate information from just any so-called "expert", right? So here's a quick bio about me and why I do what I do.
Who Am I?
I'm Canadian, and grew up in Nova Scotia (East coast Canada) with a German family background. This gives me the privilege to live and work in both Canada and Europe anytime I want.
I am an extremely creative, multi-talented and passionate entrepreneur with many different interests and hobbies including music, digital media, and personal development to name just a few. I love nature and value my health and my spiritual life.
I grew up in a working-class family where the mindset I was raised by my parents was to "study hard, get good grades, get a degree, and get a good job". This all seemed OK to me, until about 2 years into my Bachelors of Computer Science degree at Acadia University...
I Discover The World of Personal Development
I came across a book called "Study Smart, Not Hard" which opened up my mind to personal development and human potential. I realised that I could be more than I am now - that I can improve myself beyond any limitations and reach my fullest potential. I started reading more about accelerated learning, coming across Paul Scheele's Photo Reading, and then finding Steve Pavlina's Personal Development For Smart People blog with an incredible collection of high quality articles on personal development, which completely transformed my thinking and direction in my life.
I started reading Wayne Dyer, Anthony Robbins, Dale Carnegie, books about psychology, the brain, how to maximize your potential, peak performance, affirmations, and much more. I joined a local Toastmasters club that had just started in my town and was determined to overcome my shyness and fear of public speaking. I was no longer satisfied with my current life. I knew there was more for me than this outdated mentality I had grown up with and it was time for a serious change.
When I was 21, I discovered my spiritual path and started doing my daily meditation practice, learning about deep truths about life and developing my intuition and connection with my Creator. I realised that I was here on Earth for a much deeper purpose than I thought previously.
I Learn About The Laptop Millionaire
The next turning point for me was in 3rd year university, when I started a personal development club in my local town called "Change Yourself, Change the World". I attracted some amazing people I would have never met, including one who introduced me to the one book the opened my mind to the world of internet marketing and internet lifestyle. That book was called The Laptop Millionaire by Mark Anastasi. It was a life-changer for me.
That was when I decided I wanted to become an internet marketer, become financially free and wealthy, travel the world, and live life on my own terms, while at the same time making a positive difference in millions of people's lives all over the the world.
I started reading more and more about the internet business, automation, outsourcing, making money online, and started my own online web services business when I was 21. I joined a tight-knit internet marketing community called The Daily Marketing Coach with Ann Sieg, learning about the fundamentals of internet marketing and applying them to my business.
I Realize There's More To It Than Just "Strategies"
So this is the part of my story where I realized that business is far more than just knowing the right strategies. I knew intellectually that I needed to change my mindset, but I still hadn't eliminated deep, core beliefs that were blocking me from creating the business and the life I wanted. I didn't seem to make much progress, so I decided to commit to the ongoing journey of rewiring my mindset for success.
Just before graduating from university, I met my soon-to-be fiancé on Facebook and moved to London, UK a few months later to live with her. I can tell you, I had a LOT of learning to do in those years to come!
This Is Why I Do What I Do
I could go on and on in-depth about my story, but really, what really matters to me the most is to share my experiences and knowledge with you so that I make a lasting positive impact in your life. I want to give you as much value as possible, that is my goal. I'm still on my journey, as we all are. I'm not saying I have everything figured out - actually far from it, so I'm still learning more and more every day. That's why I have this blog, so I can share my insights, experiences and my life with you.
This is why I love internet marketing so much - I get to leverage technology and systems to make a massive difference in the world and live the lifestyle I choose, with only a laptop and an internet connection. Pretty amazing, isn't it?
