Secret Academy Episode - Spencer Costanzo
About:

At the age of only 20, Spencer Costanzo has released more than 200 apps with over 12 million users with zero outside funding and zero dollars spent on marketing. After deciding to skip college, Spencer focused full time on his app business where he set a goal of earning $275 per day which is the equivalent of $100,000 per year. Spencer quickly surpassed that goal and kept growing his portfolio and his earnings at the same time. The key to Spencer's success is not necessarily creating innovative game changer apps but rather scaling his app business by quickly capitalizing on trends and creating apps based on pre-existing frameworks. Today, Spencer has shifted into a different direction with Mochi Cart which is the first and easiest solution for creating a turn key mobile app ecommerce store.
