Everyone wants to have a successful life, whatever that means to them. While the idea of success is subjective, the principle remains the same: we want to build a life that allows us to live how we want. However, this is easier said than done. Many don’t even have a clear vision of where they want to be in the future and aren’t willing to give their all for it. Some fail to understand that they should first determine their direction and exert maximum effort in all pursuits along the way, and they will eventually get to where they’re meant to be.
Only those who are determined not to give up have attained the success they aim for. One such person is Shamus Goss, a serial entrepreneur who has made his mark in multiple industries, such as real estate, e-commerce, and nonprofits. Knowing that there’s more he can do for the world, he didn’t stop at only one business. Shamus used his business prowess and other proficiencies to thrive in numerous ventures.
Shamus’ journey as an entrepreneur started in 2002 when he moved to Atlanta, Georgia to challenge himself in a new career. While he’d started in the music industry, Shamus decided to launch a sporting apparel business and focused his efforts on growing it.
To own one of the biggest companies in Georgia in that niche was Shamus’ goal, but he knew that he still had a long way to go as a beginner in the industry. Therefore, he concentrated on educating himself by reading at least one book a week. He also learned from the experiences of successful entrepreneurs who have been in the game for years. By constantly committing himself to self-improvement, he gradually developed as an individual and a professional.
Acknowledging the importance of having connections in the entrepreneurial world, Shamus also made an effort to network with industry leaders. He went to events, talked with like-minded businesspersons in the room, and shared ideas, experiences, and advice. Shamus learned a lot from them, and knowing the hard work that others put into their careers, he was motivated to step up his game.
Thanks to Shamus’ tenacity and diligence, his business indeed became a leader in Georgia’s sporting apparel industry. It started gaining annual sales of more than a million dollars and was able to expand worldwide. Shamus proves through his story that anyone can make anything happen as long as they put their mind to achieving their goals.
After experiencing success as an entrepreneur, Shamus began branching out to other industries. Currently, he’s the owner of Magneto Home Solutions, which provides homeowners and buyers with the assistance they need in selling or purchasing a house. He’s also active in the e-commerce industry with Ecom Titan Pro’s and makes an impact on the world through his nonprofit, the H.E.L.P Foundation.
Shamus serves as a model for people looking for success, which is also one of the reasons for his growing influence on social media, particularly Instagram. His motivating captions give his followers the boost they need to continue.
Shamus recommends that people determine which careers they want to pursue and which industries they want to work in. After some self-reflection, they must determine if they have enough skills to make it big yet. If not, then they must gain as much knowledge and experience as they will need to succeed. This is how Shamus launched his career. Anyone could be next.
