Richard Jordan Louie has some pretty big accomplishments! From generating $500k within two months, to generating $3 million helping companies run Facebook ads. He grew up in a small Chinatown like city with his parents and started his journey when he was just 16. He hated school and knew that he had to achieve financial freedom to be able to do what he wanted whenever he wanted. He now has 2 companies, one is a digital marketing agency and the other is his e-commerce company. I had the pleasure of interviewing him. Here’s what he had to say:
What would you say to someone who came to you for advice about taking ‘the leap of faith’ into entrepreneurship?
Richard: I would tell them that you only live one life and if you don’t do it now, wouldn’t you regret it in 5 or 10 years?
What are your best 3 pieces of advice when it comes to FB ads?
- Being disciplined with your strategy
- Have an exit plan
- After spending over 4-5 figures into specific campaigns, you have a lot of data to study and observe; leverage that!
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? What lesson did you learn from them?
Richard: I have learned from many programs and YouTubers. However, Alex Becker taught me the most. He taught me how to focus, sacrifice and balance my life
Who are 3 people that inspire you?
- Elon Musk
- Alex Becker
- Sam Ovens
We often hear stories that make it seem like someone was an overnight success, when really there were setbacks and stumbles along the way. Why do you think it’s valuable to be candid about both failure and success?
Richard: First comes many failures then success. You got to experience it to learn.
What’s the best advice you have ever received?
Richard: The more value you give towards your industry, the more successful it will become.
What has been the biggest challenge and, on the flip side, the biggest reward for you?
Richard: Holding onto a strict and disciplined routine. I personally workout, meditate, and intermittent fast every morning.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your journey?
Richard: During my journey, I sacrificed a lot of things. Time with my family, ditched all friends, and broke up with my girlfriend. These sacrifices allowed no distractions and I was so much more streamline.
What are two things you wish someone told you when you first started?
- Sacrifice now for later
- It is okay to fail
