Today on Earn and Invest we talk about the American dream. With the current social upheaval and call for not only equality but equity, there is much talk of what it takes to be successful in our country in a post pandemic world. The gap between the rich and poor is ever growing, yet there are still those who come to this country in search of the American dream. With little but the clothes on their backs and the nourishment in their bellies, they claw their way out of abject poverty and build a life of wealth and abundance. In this far ranging interview, we discuss with Carlos Reyes the trials and tribulations surrounding his journey onto American soil, How poverty became his so called “x Factor”, and how to bring up successful kids in the absence of adversity.
Carlos Reyes was smuggled twice into the US and abandoned when he was a boy to escape severe poverty and abuse. He created a door-to-door sales business at age 5 and applied the lessons he learned from surviving the streets to create 27 companies in multiple industries including medical, solar, software, education and real estate with 7 of his businesses grossing millions of dollars a year.
Today he’s on a mission to liberate and heal others from their own limited beliefs.
