Secret Academy Episode - Joaquin Corrales

Coming as an immigrant from Cuba, Joaquin always knew he wanted more than just the “go to school, get a job, work, retire” lifestyle. Being in a lower middle class family, Joaquin started making some side money at a very young age by selling gaming cards online, almost $5,000 worth before he was 14! He continued on this throughout high school but realized he needed to level up, so he decided to take his online talents of selling to the back end and started going to school to be a engineer/programmer. Getting a hell of a break at the age of 18, an online programming company picked him up as a paid intern and he began studying hard at both work and school to further perfect his craft. He worked his way up the corporate ladder there, and soon enough he was less than 20 years old and was making upwards of $80,000/year, becoming the top bread-winner in his household. Then on his quest for knowledge Joaquin found Secret Entourage, and Third Circle Theory. With all the knowledge that Secret was able to give Joaquin it wasn’t long before he realized that he wanted to work on his own, for himself, and truly make a difference under his own business. So after leaving his $80,000/year job, he built his own company from the ground up, specializing in app development, coding, programing, building online platforms, etc. But as it always does, a roadblock appears and a shift was needed to be taken. Now Joaquin and his team work in the sphere of e-commerce, an industry that has recently been taking the entrepreneur space by storm. But rather than just working in it and growing his own business, he wants to share HOW he was able to scale his online store business in to the powerhouse player it is today.
