203 – Kimanzi Constable: Lifestyle Entrepreneur & Author

For twelve years Kimanzi Constable lived a life that could be best described as “existing.” He wanted more from his life but listened to his doubts, fears and the negative voices of other people.

Kimanzi started a service business at nineteen that grew to multiple six figures and had five employees in three states. Here’s the thing though, he didn’t know anything about business, and quickly got his family and himself into serious financial trouble.

He continued to limp through the business for twelve years, even though it wasn’t his dream or passion. Every day he wanted to quit, but without a college degree or any special skills, what could he do?

Things came to a breaking point in the summer of 2011. He was over $180,000 in debt, his marriage was falling apart, and his children barely knew him because he was always working. The cherry on the cake was that he was 170 pounds overweight!

In the back of his mind he had a dream of being a writer. How could that be possible, a guy with no college degree become a writer? More than that, he wanted freedom!

Three years ago he finally got fed up enough to stop existing and to do something about his dream. He decided to stop listening to all those things keeping him from a life that his family truly deserved.

He self-published a book that was a complete flop at first.  He sold five copies in the first six months. He was defeated, but determined.

He figured out a few things about the Internet and social media.  He used some strategy and self-published a second book. To date, both books have sold over 86,000 copies. (The strategies he used are in his free guides, so be sure to sign up for his email updates)

He got a book deal with a large traditional publisher and his dream of seeing his book in bookstores became a reality May 1,2013.

He got an invitation to speak at a conference in West Virginia in July of 2012, and has since spoken all over the world.  So far he has spoken in twelve states and twelve countries.

Despite all of these amazing accomplishments, he still has a family to support. The money from the books was good, and so was the money from speaking, but he needed more. He needed some consistent income.

So he sat down with his family and thought about what they wanted. They wanted freedom to do what they wanted, to live life on their terms.

They wanted to be location independent, where all they would need to make an income was an Internet connection. They’ve spent three years making that dream a reality and they are now living the dream!

Kimanzi lost 170 pounds, he quit my day job, and his family moved from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Maui, Hawaii! He’s not teaching you theories here. He’s done this in his life and he wants to help you accomplish your dreams.

He’s a contributing writer for the Huffington Post, the Good Men ProjectEntrepreneur Magazine, and Mind Body Green.
