About This Episode And Guest Greg Rollett:

This is a powerful episode and interview with the one and only Greg Rollett. Talk about a man on a mission! Greg is the epitome of living a live on purpose. Although he is only in his early 30’s, Greg has accomplished more than some do in a lifetime. His journey has led him to his current labor or love, Ambitious.com.

Greg grew up in South Florida. Living in what he considers a middle class family, they were not poor but they were by no means rich. As he mentions, they never went without much. The high school he went to was considered the “rich school”, however. Greg instantly found himself yearning for the material possessions many of his classmates were able to enjoy.

That is what lite the initial fire and was the start to his amazing journey.

Initially he wanted to be a profession sports athlete. They is was a rapper. At the young age of 18, Greg founded his own record label. He then started a band which went on to play at such venues as Madison Square Garden.

Greg married his beautiful wife when he was 23. Marrying a young musician was not necessarily the future that his father-in-law had for his daughter. After Greg and his wife tied the knot, his father-in-law suggested that he look at a more serious career to support the two of them. It was then that they all attended an internet marketing seminar.

Greg’s eyes became wide open to all of the possibilities out there.

He was an early adopter of the concept of “modeling”, which he was introduced to by studying the works of Tony Robbins. He read, listened to, and watched everything he could on those he wanted to model. Those that had already attained the success that he was working towards.

Greg’s journey from rapper, to band member, and internet marketing has led him to Ambitious.com and the Ambitious Media Group. In Greg’s words, “success in life isn’t a straight line, but everything builds”. He is putting everything he has into building up the Ambitious Media Group. He hope is to encourage young people to live more ambitious lives. “Life is more than just living for happy hour on a Friday”, says Greg.
