In today’s competitive world, none of us can fathom purchasing our first property at the age of only 19. We are involved in a rat race where all we care about is money and financial stability. In simple words, money is what motivates us to do things in our career. This is the reason that, more often than not, we are stuck in a boring 9 to 5 (and sometimes even longer) jobs, thinking that one day we will be able to move up the ladder of our personal and professional lives.

But, as the famous saying goes, “different strokes for different folks”, not everyone is the same. There are people who think out of the box and strive not just for money but overall personal and lifestyle development as well. These are the people who succeed in life. An example of such people is Myles Broom. From starting his first venture at 14, getting the keys to his first property  at the age of 19 to becoming the co-founder of one of the most reputable and rapidly expanding marketing agencies, Myles Broom is one of those individuals who believe in learning as much as you can, not just what the system teaches you.

Myles’ hustle started when he was a young boy only. At the age of 15 when his friends were involved with playing around and partying, Myles would use his time to take up activities that would nurture his hobbies and talents. This included reading and reciting Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to his father each weekend. “This book taught me to explore different avenues of life through self-learning,” says Myles. 

“While every one of my friends used to desperately wait for the Business Studies class to end, I would stay back after each lesson with my teacher, trying new things and figuring out ways to put learnings into action. So much so, that I went on to start my first venture, a t-shirt store using the platform Big Cartel, at the age of 16. The venture was actually successful (I think), we got a couple of sales, which for me was the signal that I could do it, as a kid in his bedroom with no money – I could create, and make things with value to others” he added.

The young entrepreneur always prioritized the path of learning new skills over taking up a job just because it pays well. This is probably why he has a diverse portfolio of ventures started all by himself. These include a t-shirt brand, a content creation agency, an elite members club that lasted a year, and exporting an unknown yet top-quality champagne brand in London, working with nightclubs in the luxury scene. Needless to say, Myles had his fair share of ups and downs but what kept him going was his ability to leverage every pitfall and coming out of difficult positions by identifying the silver lining. 

Myles went on to start a variety of different ventures until he found his true calling in the form of his most successful venture, The Normal Company. The company specializes in drastically scaling e-commerce businesses to their highest ever returns, mainly through paid advertising. So far, Myles and his partner, Cameron Farthing, have helped several brands as well as Instagram influencers in converting their monthly sales into multi six and seven figure earnings. This includes many celebrity-endorsed brands, such as the likes of Kylie Jenner, Will Smith, and Victorias Secret.

Myles was always big on entrepreneurship and personal development and was eager to constantly learn, and that’s the main reason behind his success. In his exact words, “I often challenged myself by pushing my own boundaries, because I knew it would teach me something new”. Myles’ main inspiration was in Richard Branson, one of the biggest names in business who had over 14 failed businesses. Much like Mr. Branson, Myles used each venture failure as a stepping stone that helped him climb higher and higher and helped him become the successful 25-year old he is today, with an exceedingly bright future. 

The story of Myles Broom teaches us the importance of taking small, self-improvement steps as we climb higher the ladder of life. At the end of the day, it is all about your internal want to grow as a person and create a legacy that sets you apart from the clutter.
