Early Life and Biography
Sam Ovens was born in Auckland, New Zealand on the 8th of October 1989. Having been born and raised in a blue-collar family, he was taught to live a content and economical life. His only dream was to complete his college education and earn a white-collar job at a reputed corporation.
Which he actually achieved!
At the age of 21, while he was still studying in college, he managed to earn a white-collar job at Vodafone and he was the celebrated success story of the family.
However, soon his perception changed about success.
A surprising interaction with a multi-millionaire entrepreneur, at a beach party, changed his perception of success in life. A private island with a helipad and an expensive statue, worth 17 years of his income, made him realize that there is a lot more that can be achieved. Now he was not content with a 50k white-collar job at Vodafone.
He wanted to be an entrepreneur and live freely without the hassle of saving money for petty wishes.
He quit his job at Vodafone, dropped out of college, and moved into his parents’ garage to start his journey as an entrepreneur. But, his first two ventures, PromoteYouself and ToTheDesk, were miserable failures. After which he was $30,000 in debt but his dream to be an entrepreneur was not shattered.
Start of the Success
The first two failures taught him a new skill of web-development. He started developing and selling business websites to overcome his debt and save some capital for his next business. Moreover, he also learned a lesson from his failed ventures that his target market should be specific not broad.
So, with SnapInspect, a property management app, he knew that his target is property management businesses and he should focus on them only. With a more specific audience, he was able to market his product more effectively, as a result, he sold $5000 worth of software licenses even before the launch of the SnapInspect app.
SnapInspect was earning him great revenue and his success could be seen. But he had greater plans in his mind. He continued his side business of selling websites and expanded it to be a digital marketing consultancy. This was the beginning of new dimensions for him.
Digital Marketing Consultancy was a bigger success than SnapInspect. As he was generating more revenue from it with lesser efforts.
Digital Marketing Consultancy made him realize that targeting the right audience is the biggest hurdle in the success of most businesses. So, this time he sold the SnapInspect app and invested the amount in growing his Digital Marketing Consultancy and mastering the art of customer acquisition.
The Beginning of Consulting.com
Digital Marketing Consultancy was running successfully and a lot of businesses would hire him to run their marketing online but a number of people would also pay him generously just for his advice or to achieve some specific goals. This made him realize that a lot of people want to learn the skill of customer acquisition and benefit from it.
So, this made him start coaching services. He would teach his students the art of identifying the right niche, targeting the right audience, and selling their products. At first, he would conduct a 1-on-1 session, which then grew to groups of 5 and then 10. But he wanted more people to benefit from his coaching without his personal involvement.
The Consulting Accelerator Training
Unlike other online coaches and trainers, Sam Ovens wanted to offer a one in all course that would teach the buyers everything in one go and they would not be in need of buying a set of other courses to complete their training and start earning.
He wanted to be the seller of the most valuable course on the internet and in this chase, the Consulting Accelerator training was originated. This training enabled 25 people to be millionaires, 500 started earning 6 figures and 3000 students quit their jobs to work on their own businesses. Not only this, but it also generated a revenue of $20 million and allowed Sam Ovens to launch consulting.com, with new Consulting Accelerator 2.0, and set up a downtown office in New York City and Dublin.
Sam Ovens did his schooling in New Zealand and got admitted to college. But his dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur got him out of the college and he started his first business from his parents’ garage.
Sam currently lives in New York City with his family. He got married to his long time girlfriend and best friend, Ashleigh Ovens, in December 2017. They tied the knot in Queenstown, New Zealand. The couple doesn’t have any kids yet. They attract many eyes with their relationship on social media.
