Twenty-two-year-old Spencer Williams has wanted to be rich since before he hit double digits.
“The first time I thought about the life I wanted to create for myself, I was in grade 8. As I grew older, my desire to become wealthy grew stronger,” said Williams, who dabbled in acting for a time with 14 commercials and one short film to his credit.
He played sports and thought about joining the army, but Williams’ entrepreneurial leanings won out and he eventually settled on pursuing “full-time wealth creation” while enjoying life in the process.
“I don’t like that so many people have to stress over money or limit what they want to do or ruin relationships over money. (Some have to) put aside their passions and dreams over money or spend a nice dinner out worrying about the bill instead of just being present the whole time. Or, can’t go on vacation without worrying about how much that costs them.”
After dropping out of university, watching several of his online businesses fail and finding a mentor, Williams said he is now using his startup, Williams Wealth Creation, to share his story and the lessons he learned “with entrepreneurs worldwide.”
He has just released a book, The Online Millionaire: The Secrets to Start & Grow a Successful Business in the 21st Century. The book follows his program, The Six Step Success System: Six Steps to a Successful e-business.
“Most people see an online business and assume it’s easy. But from the outside in, you can’t actually see what it takes to create that success.”
Williams said he’s found his age is an asset.
“I’ve had many people point out that it actually gives me a leg up because I grew up using the internet and know it inside and out.”
A global business is an incredible opportunity that has never been so achievable for the average person, said Williams.
“Anyone can get online and start exploring how to do business. Plus, you can do it from the comfort of your own home. So, I was always intrigued by the idea of being location free, working online and using a more efficient and effective technology to provide value to a group of people. You decide where you’ll work, how you’ll work, what time you’ll work, how much you want to work.”
Even though he’s been seriously pursuing how to successfully operate an online business since he was 18, Williams said, at 22 “it really only feels like the beginning. Every day is day one for me.”
