Anthony Morrison is a speaker, author, and entrepreneur who epitomises how action and determination can allow any young man or woman with a dream and work ethic to find their way to success. Anthony was only 21 years old when he launched his first business back in 2005. This first business venture started while he was still attending college.
Anthony praises an upbringing that encouraged a solid work ethic in addition to a strong life-long intellectual curiosity. Even from a young age, there was little question that Anthony was going to go out and make his impact on the world. He was a natural entrepreneur before he even knew the meaning of the word.
Courage From A Young Age
One thing you’ll find out quickly about Anthony Morrison is that his courage isn’t a late occurrence. When he was only seven years old he decided he wanted a Jacuzzi more than anything else. This definitely isn’t your normal request from a seven year old, but his parents were willing to listen under one condition: he had to prove he was serious by raising all the money himself.
Usually after a week or two that would be the end of it for most people, but even at seven years old, Anthony wasn’t your average little boy. He sold candy bars door to door. Not only once, but time and time again until he finally raised every single penny needed to buy that Jacuzzi.
Not lacking for confidence and with one successful campaign behind him, the next year at the age of eight he decided he wanted to give his dad the best gift he could think of: a motorcycle. Drafting his siblings to help him out this time, the three of them set out again and by the end of the year were able to buy their father a motorcycle.
Is it really any wonder that Anthony Morrison believes in self-esteem and taking risks? It’s amazing how many difficult, seemingly impossible goals turn out to actually be quite achievable with just a little persistence and a willingness to fail and not take it personally until you find something that really works.
Early Business Ventures
Anthony didn’t take the conventional route of working his way up the job ladder from one low paid position to a slightly higher paid position. He learned early on just how rewarding the self-employment route could be not only in how much more money could be made, but also the feeling of confidence, empathy, and self-esteem that come with early success.
Success begets success, and Anthony’s pattern for developing businesses was actually quite simple. Find something you truly enjoyed doing, throw yourself into it, find a way to make money doing what you really loved, and doing it better than everyone else around.
While these might sound like overly simple rules for getting started, they really are the foundation for any major entrepreneur who is successful over the long term!
From selling baseball cards from his own collection to pouring mechanical know-how into his prized Mustang muscle car, Anthony figured out quickly the key to success was sticking with what interested you enough to become a passion.
Successful Full Time Entrepreneur
Anthony never quit being interested in starting his own companies, but some of his projects become a part time or side thing as he pursued his education in college. However, when financial ruin threatened his family, he took it on himself to find a way to take care of those he loved.
Redoubling his efforts into an old business he started back in high school, Anthony poured his efforts into finding and providing custom parts for Mustangs. He did this in high school, but this time created it as an actual business and fought consistently to pour his efforts into watching it grow and expand.
His efforts paid off as the company, Cool Blue Performance, became a massive success. The company more than made enough for him to not only take care of his father, but also to put aside money to start up more companies, as well.
As of this biography, Anthony has created 11 businesses from scratch, as well as the popular charity “Christmas for Kids.” Those numbers are sure to continue to grow, just like the success of his businesses continue to grow and expand, as well.
Author & Entrepreneurial Coach
While Anthony still puts time into developing his own entrepreneurial ideals, he spends even more time focusing on his writing career, as well as coaching others to create their own profitable and successful businesses.
Anthony’s first book was titled “The Hidden Millionaire: 12 Principles to Uncovering the Entrepreneur in You.” This book was immediately popular and Anthony’s ability to help others became obvious. Through clear and engaging writing, excellent teaching, and exceptional experience, Anthony was able to reach a large number of people and the demand for his top-notch services grew exponentially.
A second book, “Advertising Profits From Home,” was a follow-up book that really focuses on the nuts and bolts of the modern strategies you need in order to succeed with a home business.
Anthony can still be found in his home state of Mississippi, and his loyalty to helping the local community and state he grew up in. He travels to speaking engagements, business coaching, and provides a wide array of services that entrepreneurs need.
Still Going Strong
There’s no question the main focus of Anthony’s work right now is with the business coaching and speaking engagements. Anthony is a versatile speaker who continues to keep improving his speaking skills and techniques in order to provide even more services to reach an even broader range of listeners.
Anthony has also created his own products for individuals or businesses who need the knowledge or help, but can’t afford speaking fees or direct one on one coaching. Anthony wants to make his knowledge and teachings as widely spread as possible and going through the product creation and affiliate marketing angle allows him to do just that.
Anthony Morrison is a long way from being finished. While he’s already accomplished much more as an entrepreneur, business owner, speaker, and author than most people ever will, Anthony doesn’t rest on his laurels. While no one knows for sure what the future will bring, it’s a safe bet that there will be more start ups, more businesses, and plenty of energy poured into new interests and new beginnings.
Some people believe that only a select few have what it takes to blaze their own trail, while others think that spirit is in most people – but they don’t know how to listen to that voice. Whatever your beliefs, anyone who wants to take the opportunity to create their own business and move forward needs help from experienced professionals to help push them to success using the fastest route possible.
This is where Anthony’s services come in. Whether you’ve tried multiple times and just can’t quite get going or you’re starting from scratch, Anthony can help entrepreneurs of all ages reach the goals that they’re aiming for.
Whether it’s encouraging people to find their inner trailblazer or preparing a new business based around his newest passion, there’s little doubt that Anthony Morrison will continue to make waves in the years to come. Whether his next step is to write several more books, coach more successful start-ups to a new level of success, or found his next million dollar business, it’s going to be interesting seeing where Anthony’s confidence and abilities take him next.
