Khalil Hayes, 23
Ecom Degree Coach
Khalil was born in Norcross, Georgia. Raised by his mom until the age of six, they went through many struggles; From renting out rooms in their own home and nights without water or heat, it was rough. He was raised though, by a strong woman that never gave up. She started her own entrepreneurial journey and set a path for Khalil to be able to start his own journey.
At the age of 12 he started his first small business, “Khalil’s Odd Jobs”, doing whatever he could from lawn work, to dog sitting, and even painting, charging his own prices and negotiating with adults as a kid. From their he moved on to actually working a regular job and getting familiar with the workforce. As young as he was, he was super ambitious and started off as a busser, while still in school. After graduating at 16, he decided to work there until he could figure out what his next move was. His mom and stepdad never pushed college on him, so he raised quickly through the ranks in the restaurant and cleared nearly every position, besides manager. He started an online eBay business and ran a successful store for someone of the age of 16/17 in 2012. He even did music for a short time with a group that managed to make 6 figure views on YouTube. Yet, feeling as if it all wasn’t enough and wanted to pursue music further, he decided to give college a try.
He decided on going to Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL. As cool as the school was, it was still school for him. Going to class, being taught and regurgitating the information for test, was literally driving him insane. School killed the passion for music that he had and eventually he dropped out. He started making money any way that he could and eventually stumbled into a MLM company. After spending two years with that company, he decided to live off his business in Florida and ended up helping some people that didn’t end well in his favor. A few hard lessons later he moved back home. Stuck in a loop, he decided to work back at his first job and absolutely hated it. He started reaching out to a couple of friends, started his own dance channel and networking with the successful individuals he did know.
