Dan Lok’s parents separated when he was only 14. Just after two years, his father declared himself bankrupt which meant that he won’t be able to financially support Dan Lok and his mother anymore. Lok himself says, “I will never forget the look of hopelessness on my mom’s face and the tears in her eyes. At that moment, I decided that I would be successful. I didn’t need my dad; I would provide for my mom. I never wanted to see that look again.” This was his first motivation to start earning as early as possible.
How Dan Lok started his business?
As he says himself in his recent video at his personal YouTube channel, Dan Lok started his business career as a lawnmower along with a few of his friends. At the time of the start of business, he was only in high school and used to mow the lawns of the people in the vicinity. At the age of 16, he used to do a 9 to 5 job of bagging groceries but soon he learned that he was not made to do a normal job. As he says:” I was told that I was unemployable because I don’t like being told what to do. I cannot disagree with that statement,”
He had failed in 13 businesses consecutively and at the age of 20 years, he was already $150,000 in debt. So then how did Dan Lok make his money? If he was failing so consistently, how it is that he has a net worth of $86 million dollars now (at the time when this article is being written)? The answer to these questions is his dedication and commitment. He will and resolve to do something big made him write his name in the book of most successful people. He never gave up; he continued to struggle and learned from each of his mistakes. He describes his failures as “Losses with lessons” and this attitude of his made him earn six figures when he was only 22.
He then went under the mentorship of Alan Jacques and learned to Copywrite from him. At the age of 21 years, he wrote his sales letter, taking weeks, just for it to be described as “terrible’ by Jacques. He then rewrote it 7 times after which it was finally accepted. He then started a one-person advertising company with the guidance of Jacques. He helped his clients make millions, and shortly afterwards he was already earning six figures as he charged about ten thousand dollars per project. He then invested all his hard-earned money through online businesses in Real Estate.
He thought to retire and as he says in a video on his YouTube channel, he sat on a beach for one whole month only to end up getting sunburnt. The following month he watched 6 to 8 movies every day but again, he ended up getting bored. That was when he decided that he won’t stop. He set up a new goal and started mentoring the young entrepreneurs through a lot of his programs. He started a YouTube channel too for people to learn more from him. On social media, he is known to have been searching for more than 1.7 billion times.
