How one man became a self-made millionaire
Self-made millennial millionaire
Gerard Adams, did not take the “traditional route” to get where he is today.
If you haven’t heard of Gerard Adams, you should. Adams, 35, is an American entrepreneur. And more than that, he’s a dreamer, a leader, a philanthropist, and investor. His claim to fame happened at the young age of 24. He left college at Caldwell University to pursue his dreams, with the goal of finding a way to give a voice to the millennial generation.
Leaders create leaders
After a few failures, numerous obstacles, and moments of self-doubt, he founded EliteDaily.com, a news site targeted toward the newest generation entering the workforce. He knew his audience well and had an uncanny drive to succeed. With a lot of hard work, his venture paid off a few years later when Daily Mail bought his site for $50 million.
A millennial himself, he understands the generations’ desire to break molds, and a have/create purposeful work. He encourages people to take the road less traveled and believes wholeheartedly that your background doesn’t matter as much as your desire to succeed.
The millennial mentor
Since selling his company, he continues to innovate within his own brand, as well as investing in other companies. He has become known as The Millennial Mentor because of the persistent effort he places on encouraging others, both in the millennial generation, and outside of it, to go after their dreams.
