Carving Your Own Path With Casey Holladay

His Own Path

At 27 years old, many people are in the beginning stages of their chosen career, while others are still searching for what that might be. Casey Holladay, however, is already in his eighth year as an entrepreneur with two growing companies and several stamps on his passport. After bucking the traditional college route at 19 to bet on himself, Casey quickly found success with a marketing company specializing in nutritional supplements. Instead of 8 am classes, Casey was sitting in a brand new BMW. “I saw young people making a lot of money and knew that if they could do it, so could I,” he explains. “I saw people living luxurious lives and knew I would do whatever it takes to have that.”

Finding Success

With the early success under his belt, Casey began running door-to-door operations across the United States. After living in six states in just one calendar year, Casey found himself partnered with a solar energy company that flew him to Australia for managing and consultation. By 25, he was ready to co-launch his own brand: Market Hackers. “These are trading tools that help the average person get more out of life,” Casey says. With nearly 50,000 facebook members and over 10,000 customers in two years, Casey made nearly $150,000 working from home in 2019. A recent partnership with WiFi Money, has added an additional $10,000 per month in commissions his first month.

Overcoming Doubt

Despite his quick climb, Casey maintains that the path has not been an easy one. “So many people don’t understand what it’s like to be a young entrepreneur,” he explains. “One of my biggest challenges was not only having to deal with tough situations but then having to explain to parents, family and friends that you aren’t a failure, that it’s a business and the income isn’t the same as a job.” When a venture would start slowly or move in a different direction, Casey found himself steadied by his confidence in himself and his business. “Having people question what you’re doing is already hard enough, let alone in moments when it really seems like they were right,” he admits. “You have to really believe in yourself and just keep going!”

The Recipe for Success

In addition to that belief in yourself, Casey says there are a few key elements for aspiring young entrepreneurs. Surrounding yourself with people who share your mindset and believe in you, daily personal growth, and making sure to take time for yourself are all vital, he explains. But perhaps more important than any of those is to have a vision for where you want to be. “Figure out what you want,” Casey begins. “Really understand what it is and what it takes. Don’t get caught up in short term wins and really map out what you want for the next 20 years.”
