YOU COULD DO THE SAME following my Wolf Millionaire Instagram Video Guides!
I have become so successful using Instagram in the last couple years! I am not teaching you how to scam people. This is NOT a get rich quick scheme. I’m going to teach you how to use Instagram as the latest and greatest blogging platform to make money quicker than trying to create a normal blog on the web. I am going to teach you how to create the best Instagram page possible whether you are looking to build a brand, start a company, sell a product or just have an awesome Instagram page to help your guitar, singing, yoga’ing, gaming, acting career…. get my point.
Everyone needs to have a good Instagram, so let me teach you everything STEP-BY-STEP.
What are you waiting for? Stop wasting your time! It’s a NEW YEAR, so there should be a NEW YOU ready to kick ass and take charge of your own financial freedom! LET ME teach YOU HOW!
Instagraming has changed my life, almost more so than losing my father did when I was 19. In fact my father passed away EXACTLY 20 years ago to this day when I was 19. I remember it like it was yesterday. I can’t believe 20 years have flown by. CRAZY!
I always had a full time stable job to pay off student debt and pay the bills. I was always playing with blogs and the web on the side making a couple thousand dollars here and there. But it was nothing like The Money I am Making Using Instagram. Instagram literally has transformed my life into the life I ALWAYS DREAMED OF! A FINANCIALLY FREE ONE!
I lost my job for the first time in my life 4 years ago, and it wasn’t until I started exploring different social media opportunities (Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter etc) that I stumbled upon Instagram and I saw how much money was just waiting for people who were in the KNOW. I wasn’t the first person making money on Instagram, I was a little late to that game, but once I started I visualized and understood how I was going to play the game and make more money than anyone else.
SPOILER ALERT: I continue to kill it on Instagram as an Influencer, and I cant TEACH YOU how STEP-BY-STEP. I am going to be 40 years old this year. So if I can do it, surely enough you YOUNG, EAGER and HARD WORKING millennials can do it even better. That is if YOUR NOT LAZY….
It took me a year to really figure it out (yes I failed, I lost money and spent hours trying to figure out Instagram) before I started making serious money and helping others in various other niches do the same! But I stuck with it because I had the vision of seeing where it could take me. I just didn’t realize I’d be driving a McLaren and rocking a solid GOLD Rolex this quickly!
Check out the video BELOW to see how much fun I’m having driving my brand new McLaren in the SNOW here in Toronto in the Winter!!
REMEMBER, YOU GET BACK WHAT YOU PUT INTO LIFE & OPPORTUNITY. HARD WORK ALWAYS PAYS OFF!
My FREE 35 Page Instagram Guide and Wolf Millionaire Instagram Video Guides launched just over 2 years ago have helped tens of thousands of people, businesses and brands around the world learn how to use Instagram properly!
My STEP-BY-STEP Instagram Video Guides are like NO ONE ELSES. I literally walk you through EVERYTHING STEP-BY-STEP, so you can follow along on your mobile device and learn as I teach. I walk you through everything on iOS and Android devices, all the BEST PRACTICES I’ve mastered along my own journey to 18+ Million followers across 30 accounts.
Yes that’s a rather extreme number of Instagram accounts, but there is a reason. YOU really only need to have ONE Instagram account and all my knowledge to START MAKING MONEY with your own PASSIONS!
I started to grow several pages because I need them for MadWhips.com as you will learn in my Networking chapter, having a couple pages or others to work with can significantly help you grow your main Instagram account.
2017 Wolf Millionaire Success – THE BAD
Lets take a quick peek of what I accomplished in 2017.
Despite the amazing adventure I had in 2017, I personally felt that I had a very unkind year….. which I actually did.
Biggie said it best “mo money mo problems”, and this year was full of MO PROBLEMS.
So lets get the MO PROBLEMS of 2017 out of the way first because for the most part, it was a pretty draining and stressful year. DESPITE what I chose to show you and talk about on Instagram.
Lets see, I had Partner issues (no one will ever work as hard as YOU yet claim they are owed more than what legal agreements dictate), developer issues (always hard to find a solid trusting web/app developer), money issues (one client went bankrupt and I lost $30k because they couldn’t pay), accountant issues (yup my accountant of 15 years decided to retire and leave me with a big mess to deal with), family issues (we all have them, I have an aging mother and a disabled brother) and I even lost a very close friend and life coach very suddenly last month.
So as you can see, I have a very normal life. I experience SHIT daily/weekly and to be completely honest, some days I don’t feel like getting out of bed. Honestly! I am human. I am 39 and yet I get up and do the same shit over and over and over. 12-15 hour days I put in, and despite it being an emotional rollercoaster some days, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY LIFE, because I am truly living it the EXACT way I want to! Can you say the same?
HARD WORK, SACRIFICE & COMMITMENT BREEDS success. END OF STORY. THERE IS NO SHORTCUT. THERE IS NO EASY HACK. Everything I own and have earned in life since I lost my father at the age of 19, everything I have learnt in the last 20 years I’ve done by my fucking self, I am a PRODUCT of my OWN HARD WORK & HUSLTE. Do YOU truly have it in YOU to join me? How bad do you want success?
The SECRET…. YOU COULD BE DOING THE SAME! All you have to do IS GET UP, LEARN and DO YOUR BEST EVERY FUCKING DAY, to accomplish your GOALS little by little, without any BULLSHIT EXCUSES. YES life is HARD, fucking DEAL WITH IT or YOU WILL FAIL.
These Instagram Success Stories will show you and tell you the same thing, which is why they stand out from the rest of the students I’ve had that have come and gone with their half ass efforts.
One student who’s an airbus pilot just landed an incredible Influencer deal (that even I’m jealous about) with BELL & ROSS watches & BOSE with only 80,000 followers and another fashion influencer who’s been working directly with big brands like EXPRESS MEN, Banana Republic, McLaren while launching his own fashion brand.
These students have put in the time, they didn’t give up and I stood next to them mentoring and helping them (not something I normally do) because they SHOWED ME they were hungry and serious about finding their own successes on Instagram! Look at them now! Using Instagram to have fun, show off their amazing life and passions and getting some pretty amazing deals with brands out of it! AMAAAAAAZZZZZZINNNNGGG!!!
These students saw the potential and their future to leverage their passions on social media with Instagram being the most powerful and success generating Social Network on the planet!
You see, I show you all the amazing parts of my life, and I don’t show you the toughest parts of being a successful Instagram Influencer because I am a very private person. The last thing I want to do is talk about my TOUGH times/days despite that being my reality some days. This is all part of life’s journey as an Instagram Influencer & Entrepreneur.
I deal with these BAD days in my own way, and airing them on Instagram or Social media just isn’t what I’m every interested in doing because it can sometime take over my day. But I wanted to write you this article from my heart, to let YOU KNOW that everyday is a fun EPIC adventure, some days are HARD, some DAYS ARE EASY!
I allow myself about 5 hours on Instagram a day, 1 being in the morning when I post to @Wolf_Millionaire for my daily post, doing my research, checking various accounts and how Instagram is behaving and then 30min here and there throughout my day implementing the strategies that I TEACH YOU all STEP-BY-STEP in my Wolf Millionaire Video Guides.
I am still in PURE GRIND mode, I am hungry after getting a quick taste of Instagram Success, and I WANT MORE! This requires me to put my phones down and grind out emails to new clients, new partners, new sponsors and handle all my clients needs. My days are LONG, I work 7 days a week. But it all feels like PLAY. I could NEVER go back to working for someone else in my lifetime after learning that I could do it all on my own ever since I lost my job!
2017 Wolf Millionaire Success – THE GOOD
I kicked off 2017 by shipping my McLaren down to Miami where I was sponsored by Ceramic Pro Instagram Success, my very first MAJOR Instagram Influencer deal I closed where I was getting paid to use a product that was applied to my car. I learnt so much about making deals, working with brands and how not to get taken advantage of, yup the hard way. LIVE & LEARN, thats what it’s all about!
Miami Life was pretty fun, meeting new people, collaborating with other influencers and joining all the rest of my exotic car family at various shows in Miami and Palm Beach! I even got invited down to key west (yes of course I drove my McLaren) to spend a weekend at the Parrot Key Resort in exchange for me to highlight their beautiful luxury hotel to all my followers!
While in Key West, I was invited to “GET IN DA CHOPPA” to get some insane shots for both myself and Air Adventures Helicopter Tours! It was amazing, I haven’t been in an helicopter EVER, and when I was asked if I wanted the DOORS ON OR OFF, I said OFF without question even though I was a little scared (I don’t like rollercoasters, I don’t have the stomach for it)….. What a blast that was! I definitely want to own a helicopter and have my license ASAP!
Naturally I had to take a quick break in March to fly out to Geneva where I hung out and drooled over all the new Koenigseggs, New Pagani Huayra and connected with all my other social media, youtube and photographers from around the world who make the trip to Geneva every year!
After I bypassed the Toronto Winter by spending most of my time in Miami, I packed up and shipped my McLaren off to Los Angeles for a month to start the GOLD RUSH RALLY! Yup I have always wanted to do a MAJOR RALLY and thankfully my Instagram Network provided just that major opportunity to be the official Social Media Instagram partner for the GOLD RUSH RALLY!
Spent a couple weeks working poolside at the SLS in Beverly Hills, one of my favorite hotels in LA. Not only do they have one of the best rooftops but they keep my McLaren right out front of hotel for me. There is NO better feeling than to come down for your morning coffee and walking outside and seeing your McLaren parked in the front of a hotel with other exotic cars. GOALS ON GOALS! Thats some bucket list shit right there!
I originally had planned to have DAMON of DailyDrivenExotics join me as my GoldRush Rally Co-Pilot, but due to some ridiculous VIRAL content DAMON created he was banned from joining the GoldRush Rally this year. FUCKKKKKKKKKK….. ARE YOU KIDDING ME………. this is how I kicked off my Gold Rush Rally, ALONE and without a Co-Pilot.
It didn’t stop me from having a great time and connecting with all the social media characters in my exotic car niche like Debbie AKA BatGirl and her INSANE Lamborghini Aventador SV that she daily DRIVES! HAHA YEA CRAZY, but such an amazing, loving and supportive women! She spends so much time raising awareness and doing charity work that it just makes me so happy to see her at all these events we attend!! HI DEBBIE ✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️
Look at who I met up with in Los Angeles, Mike Tornabene of BRO SCIENCE, he’s got a pretty sick McLaren 570s and we geeked out over our cars, driving them hard and our social media worlds. Yes he’s literally just another AWESOME BRO, not as obnoxious as his hilarious character Dom Mazzetti but he’s a totally wicked dude. I can’t say that about most people I meet, let alone people who have such massive YouTube followings. Dude was an insane pleasure to meet you and hang out with you! See you on my next visit to Los Angeles!
I also had a chance to spend lots of time with Bryan & Conc aka Instagram phenomenon @TeamSalamone who are the defining characters of many world exotic car rallies. NO ONE DAILY DRIVES their LAMBOS harder or faster than @TeamSalamone! Thanks for your love and all the amazing WINNING we did together while on the GOLD RUSH RALLY! You both taught me how to NOT GIVE ANY FUCKS and just ENJOY LIFE TO ITS FULLEST!! THANK YOU!!
Despite my McLaren breaking down on the first day of the Rally (yup sucks but thats life – was a $150 rad hose that went under warranty) I was invited to join Amber & Angie of Gi Automotive in their Porsche 911 GT3 RS and McLaren 675LT Spider!! WHAAAAAATTT!!?!??! Yup Angie let me drive her brand new 675LT spider for more than half of the GOLD RUSH RALLY! And she let me drive it like I stole it! WHAT A BLAST!!! THANKS ANGIE & AMBER xoxox
I came back to Toronto in June with my McLaren and fired up my MadWhips Team to get back on track at the DMZ, Canada’s largest business incubator where my company was located for the last 2 years. This is what happens when you work your ass off and grow multiple businesses using Instagram simply by following your passions. MAGIC!
That summer I was also invited to join the ACE SPADE rally with my west coast brother Damon of DailyDrivenExotics while getting to have James “The Stradman” ride CO-PILOT with me! WOW!! This was definitely one of the highlights of my YEAR, getting to spend time with James, of whom I’ve looked up to and watched his YouTube Channel since he started it. ANOTHER DREAM COME TRUE!
While having planned an AMAZING Monterey Car Week rooming with Damon & Nick of RallyPorsche I arrived in LA and drove up to Monterey with Damon for the Italian Stampede. It was amazing to meet up and connect with all the hardcore exotic car owners that brought out their Paganis, Bugattis, Ferraris and Lamborghini’s. None of which stood a chance against Damons VF Engineering 900hp Lamborghini Huracan! Yup as you can see below we made lots of friends and were signing autographs in Los Angeles!
However the first night I was in Monterey I had a family emergency and had to fly back home the next morning at 8am. UGGGGGGGG, life sometimes SUCKS but there was nothing I could do.
It wasn’t long after Monterey ended (the first year in 10 years I wasn’t there for the entire week) and I felt I had missed out on some fun times that I got a call from Corsa Rally to see if I wanted to join their rally and cover it on Instagram! Damon & Nick were already in and both had an empty seat so I didn’t even need to get my car out to VEGAS for the rally. Grabbing a quick flight out we setup Nicks Porsche 911 Turbo S (Champion Motorsport Stage 1 TUNED 750hp) with some MadWhips & Wolf Millionaire Decals! SO COOL AND SO FUN!
We went for a sunset cruise the night before the rally started with a dozen other cars, and guess what happened. FACCCCCCKKKKK we ran over a massive boulder on the road (that we could not avoid or break in time) and it punctured a coolant line. YUP we were no longer doing the CORSA RALLY in Nicks Insane Porsche that had my MadWhips & Wolf Millionaire LOGOS on it… FACCKKKKKKK SERIOUSLY!!!!! I just got over having my McLaren break down for a silly rad hose on Gold Rush Rally, I had to fly home from Monterey for a family emergency, and NOW THIS?!?!?!?!
Naturally I stayed positive and Nick was able to get us a Porsche Cayenne for the rest of the rally. IT wasn’t as fun as Nicks Porsche, BUUUUT, it allowed me to get some ABSOLUTELY INSANE photos and VIDEOS on the rally, and there wasn’t anything more important for me than getting SICK CONTENT! After all I am an Instagram Influencer, CREATING CONTENT is my lively hood, and I’m one of the best in the automotive world to cover events.
One of the biggest viewed Instagram Videos I created this year went viral while on the Corsa Rally, as you can see I posted it below on one of my biggest Instagram accounts @Exotic_Performance where it has seen almost 250,000 VIEWS!! CRAZY!!! I got so many NEW CLIENTS and advertising requests off this one video I took while hanging out the sunroof of our loaner Porsche Cayenne…. See how everything works out when you WORK HARD and just follow your passions!
Yes I have $10,000 worth of camera equipment (Canon 5D MKIII and a Lumix GH4, BUT, 98% of the photos and video I take and post is done on my Android Pixel XL or iPhone 7+, I guess I just now how to take a good enough picture using my phones instead of dealing with big expensive annoying cameras all the time! Thats part of the ART of Instagramming and a skill earned by simply taking lots of photos on your PHONE to understand lighting and angles! I am still learning but I think I know what I’m doing 🙂
Damon and I made up for lost time together in Monterey destroying Aventador after Aventador on the rally with his Supercharged Huracan. I had a six pack of abs (despite all the Pop Tarts I ate) mainly because of how much we fucking LAUGHED and LAUGHED and broke Nick @RallyPorsche’s balls the entire time. AHHHHH MISS YOU BOYS XOXOXO Can’t wait to see you both for our next adventures in 2018!!
Instead of vacationing (working) down in Miami this winter, I decided to keep the McLaren up in Toronto, slap on some winter tires thanks to my partnership with Simply Tire here in Toronto that keeps FRESH rubber on my McLaren year round! Hit them up for an amazing deal and tell them Anthony of MadWhips sent you, Allen, ZOOK & KAT will take amazing care of you!
Winter ROARED IN LIKE A LION this year. The FIRST MAJOR winter with record breaking SNOW and COLD (avg is -20C) and I was HAPPIER than I had been all YEAR! I was like a little kid the first major snowfall. Remember I grew up in Sudbury for 20 years of my life, so I was used to seeing LOTS OF SNOW during winter. For me the winter is what announced the beginning of Christmas and held the start of the NEW year ahead! I think the proof of how much fun I am having daily driving my McLaren in the snow to take insanely fun and viral photos is captured in the photos below.
I spent Christmas at my Mom’s in Barrie, and as you can see we had a white Christmas up there that allowed my brother and I to have some fun doing donuts when not helping mom around the house 🙂
Boxing day, I lived out a childhood dream. I grabbed my snowboard and drove up to Collingwood for a day snowboarding by myself! BUCKET LIST! People think I’m crazy, but what they don’t realize that I’m simply just living out MY DREAMS. You don’t have to understand them, or me, because it’s MY LIFE and I’m going to do what makes me HAPPY! There is nothing stopping YOU, except YOU not taking action and following your own passions!
And just like that, 2017 flew by! When I look back at my path this year and remind myself what I have accomplished this year it sure looks like an INCREDIBLE SUCCESSFUL YEAR, which it was, but it wasn’t without lots of heart ache, many business woes and personal loss. These were all setbacks, some bigger than others, most just a negative or nagging buzzing. I HAD TO PUSH PAST IT. Some days it was unbearable, but I needed to keep pushing forward!
So just remember, there is MASSIVE opportunity out there in every SINGLE niche you are passionate about. You just have to WANT IT as bad as I do, and WILLING to do whatever YOU need to do in order to devote time, energy and focus to YOUR PASSIONS!
I can show you STEP-BY-STEP in my Wolf Millionaire Instagram Video Guides exactly how to create your own brand, business or turn yourself into an Instagram Influencer if you are willing to learn. You have to put as much love, patience and energy into Instagram if you truly want to become a successful Instagram Influencer. Half assing it will get you nowhere but one place in life, the back of the bus with all the other LAZY students who failed to simply EXECUTE my STEP-BY-STEP strategies! It’s NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!
Just realize that it doesn’t’ happen overnight. You will need to work and work and work at it until you are sick of it. Because that’s what it truly means to follow your passions and chase your dreams. The good news is, that focusing and putting in the work is actually the easy part, the hard part is continuously motivating yourself to get up and kick ass every single day! This is where 99% FAIL.
Only THEN when you’ve truly put in your TIME will the universe reward you with little wins along the way that will all add up to your MAJOR GOAL being accomplished!
I am just getting started, but as you can see I continue to just PUT IN THE WORK, EVERY SINGLE FUCKING DAY. Sure most the time it feels like PLAY, but lots of time it doesn’t!
Just look at all these little wins I’ve had along my 2017 year in the face of one of the TOUGHEST YEARS I’ve ever experienced since I lost my father exactly 20 years ago. DAMN, LIFE IS GOOD even when it’s BAD!
HAPPY NEW YEAR & HAPPY INSTAGRAMMING #WolfPack
Time for more winter donut fun!
