Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in finance but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Edwin Carrion, Founder of Carrion Investment Group, located in Miami, FL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
One of my companies is in business education and consulting. What I offer there is two amazing programs where I take motivated individual, an entrepreneur or business owner that wants to change careers and turn them into a successful real estate developer. My other program is where I take a struggling business owner or entrepreneur that’s having a hard time scaling their business or doesn’t have a balance in life and needs to go from the business owning them to becoming a business owner.
Tell us about yourself
I am a God-made millionaire, entrepreneur, family-oriented investor, author and mentor. Throughout my run, I have founded several multimillion-dollar companies that specialize in real estate development, precious metals, transportation & logistics, investments, and business education & consulting.
Backed by over 20 years of extensive experience in various industries, I now share my passion for entrepreneurship by training and mentoring others since I realized most people don’t live a fulfilled life. Simply because people believes that success comes at the cost of poor family life, unbalanced life, or compromising their values to achieve success. I guide people on the path to living life to the fullest by having balance in all areas.
I am a highly sought-after and renowned international speaker whose energy, passion, charisma, and personality have captivated audiences around the world. My love and passion for living life to the fullest are fueled by three main core values that I gained while serving the United States Marines. These are Honor, Courage, and Commitment. I also help professionals and entrepreneurs achieve the success they deserve in life and business.
I am an author of two books; Secrets of a Millionaire Gold Buyer and 9 Secrets for a Successful Life & Business. I have been featured in New York Weekly, CEO Weekly, Entrepreneur Magazine Asia, Inc 5000, Veteran top 100, and many other leading publications. I am here to share my knowledge and God-given talent to aspiring entrepreneurs, to address their problems by sharing what I know and learning from my experiences.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is knowing I can help people and having a great relationship with my employees. Experiencing a balanced life, I spent most of my time with my family while earning millions on my businesses. I am capable of sharing my knowledge with different entrepreneurs.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Learning how to scale and delegating the task that you should not be doing in order for you to focus on what you are great at.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Having faith in God and in yourself. Hire a mentor fast and early on that’s aligned with your beliefs and values so they can help you achieve the level of success that you are looking for.
