With no resources, experience, nor connections, Neil Patel started his entrepreneurship career at the age of 15, while he was still in highschool. While his first venture (a replica of the Monster job board website) failed, Neil kept going and built more businesses.

Since then, he's created multiple multi-million dollar businesses, and is known to be one of the most influential marketers in the world. Neil was recognized as a Top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and Forbes named him one of the top 10 marketers in the world.

I've been following Neil for awhile, and I can confirm that he's the real deal. From the quality of his content to the results he has gotten for his businesses and his clients, which includes Amazon, GM, and NBC.

Here's an example of one of his awesome guides.

Today, Neil talks to us about how to build your personal brand from day one, how he's been able to grow a massive, loyal following online through blogging and social media, and shares his advice on how you can do the same.
