Secret To Success – ADV1 Wheels

About 2 years ago, a wheel phenomenon started by the name of 360 Forged. Classic designs that were fresh, elegant and truly engaged the driver with luxury lifestyles. The wheels were designed to perfection and the phenomenon started taking over all the internet. Amazing pictures of exotic cars spotted wearing some of the industry’s finest shoes could be found just about everywhere and so we had the chance to meet the founder/owner of 360 Forged wheels at the time, Jordan Swerdloff, who was kind enough to give us an exclusive insight into his great success. Years have past since 360 Forged launched and unfortunately as many may already be aware, Jordan had to sell 360 Forged as business went sour as he no longer was able to manage the business. Stories spread all over the net and gave Jordan Swerloff a reputation that didn’t fit him very well…

Jordan has since laid low, and many believed that he simply was hiding from his failure, but as we all know failure is the secret to success and therefore Jordan wasn’t about to quit his passion for success nor becoming a wheel god. Secret Entourage is bringing you this exclusive 1 on 1 with Jordan where we get a chance to set the record straight once and for all on what went wrong with 360 Forged and how he plans to take over the wheel world with his new company: ADV1 Wheels.

The readers concern was that a dealership had lied to him about his credit score and ability to qualify for a loan so that they could charge him a higher interest rate, so they would make more money on when selling it to the bank. His concern was the fact that they were making money on the loan as well as the car, which to him seemed unfair that he had to pay more because the dealer was making money by lying and therefore called this a scam. I called it reality and therefore we came to a disagreement…
