How To Became A Successful Entrepreneur At A Young Age (video)


In this Expert Insight Interview, Brian Mayne discusses how he changed his life through Goal Mapping. Brian Mayne is a global speaker on personal development, seminar leader, author of four books on personal development, and the creator of the following empowerment techniques — Goal Mapping, Life Mapping, Action Mapping, and Self Mapping. He has worked with organizations like Microsoft, IBM, Disney, and many others.

This Expert Insight Interview discusses:

  • His early childhood and how he became a successful entrepreneur at a young age
  • How things changed for him radically in his late 20s
  • How he discovered the concept of personal development

Upbringing and Early Success

Brian Mayne grew up in a traveling funfair circus family and moved around a lot as a child. He left school just before turning 13 — a typical situation for traveling Gypsy children. He had no qualifications, had never learned to read and write, and worked for his father’s funfair business, which traveled around the country.

His father’s business thrived for many years, and from 13 onwards, he worked full-time. He became the youngest licensee in England ever when he was granted a liquor and entertainment license at age 18. He became very wealthy at a very young age, but obviously, he had a very unusual early sales and entrepreneur career.

A New Chapter

Things changed for Brian at age 29 when tourism ended on the Isle of Wight because airfare prices came down in the late 1980s and English people started taking their main summer holiday in the Mediterranean. His father’s business ended, so at age 29, Brian found himself in a lot of debt, with no qualifications.

Because he had never learned to read and write, Brian didn’t have a lot of options open on the job market. Luckily, some friends offered him a position in their direct sales team. He wasn’t very successful in sales at first, but this opportunity turned out to be the biggest blessing.

The Path of Personal Development

Enjoying the sales team put him on a new career path and, most importantly, introduced him to the concept of personal development. He used personal development, particularly the science of positive thinking, to develop himself as a person and advance his career.

He primarily focused on overcoming his learning challenges and teaching himself to read well. Once he had learned to read, the topic he wanted to read most about was personal development and motivational psychology, which he now uses in every area of his life.
