015: 12-Year Old Entrepreneur Reveals his Secrets to Success with Marc Guberti

Marc started his first blog as an 11-year-old. The Red Sox focused blog allowed him to interact with other Red Sox in New York. As a result, Marc fell in love with the marketing and content creation associated with running a successful content brand.

Before Marc grew his audience to almost 500,000 people, he was criticized for being too young and not knowing enough about his niche. Not only was Marc able to rise above the criticism, but he was able to thrive. Marc has several books and shows no signs of stopping any time soon (or ever).

Marc’s mission is to boost his legacy to provide a further testament to teenagers all over the world that they can be successful at a young age. There’s no longer a reason to wait when anyone, including a teenager, can create their own thriving business.
