My Story

Hey, my name is Reece Moss and I want to tell you a little about myself. My story is a little unique, but I'm proud of my past - no matter how much I may have hated to live through it.

This is the story of how I found myself. How I discovered my mission towards self-mastery.

It's the reason I am obsessed with growing. It is how I have succeeded in what I have so far, and it is the reason I will keep achieving.

The Early Days

Growing up, I lived with my mother - a single parent of 2. My dad was around, and although he has played an extensive part in helping me become who I am today - it was my mother who had the full-time role of parenting.

She would take me to school, and then go to work. After school, instead of her picking me up - it would be my grandmother. My mum would go to work at her second job. I would see her in the evening, she would read me a bedtime story - and I would go to sleep.

At such a young age, I got to experience first hand what it meant to be a provider - but even more than that, I saw the struggles of working for someone else. We were by no means dirt poor, but it's clear to admit my mum put in a lot of time, for such 'little' reward.

No matter the countless hours my mother would put in, it would always be the same "we cannot afford that," or "money does not grow on trees".
I learned that you really cannot become rich working for someone else, and at such an early age, I decided I would do things differently.

A Childhood Dream

As a child, most people want to become footballers or doctors. I thought that was a little boring.

I hated following rules & instructions (you could tell from the D and E grades I received in school,) and I wanted nothing more than to be the person to set the rules.

When adults would ask "what do you want to be when you grow up?" my answer, "an entrepreneur," was one that made it difficult to contain a laugh.

But I would smile back, I always believed in my dream.

My Darkest Days

As I reached high school, things started to go downhill.
  
Not only was I receiving some of the worst grades possible, but I also received a difficult time from the other kids.

I was verbally bullied on a near-daily basis, and I let it define who I was as a person.

The little confidence I had was now shattered. Being singled-out made me shy & timid. I would sit in the back of the class reading a business book, just trying to stay out of sight.
Thankfully, however, there was one benefit of this time at high school. My natural entrepreneurial spirit started to bleed through. Some of the older students would sell drinks and sweets. I spotted a gap in the market. A product that wasn't being sold: Chewits! (for you international readers, a well-desired chewy sweet with a sour taste).

I was making around £100 a month just for selling sweets during my lunch hour. This was my first experience in "business," and it felt pretty cool to be making easy money.

Introduction to Online Business

I started reading everything I could get my hands on, but the book that opened my eyes to the growing online business opportunity was “The Laptop Millionaire” by Mark Anastasi.

It mentioned how you could make a business online that you could run from anywhere in the world, with only your laptop. I liked the idea of running a business in the background. Being able to own a business while being truly free and travel the world. It sounded like my dream could become my reality.
The problem is that this blessing was equally a curse. It started my obsession with constant learning, and when I got access to my savings at age 18 - I used that money and invested in every marketing course/book I could find. I wanted to learn everything about digital marketing.

Social media growth, Facebook Ads, Google AdWords, SEO, Copywriting, Funnel Creation, and pretty much everything else you could imagine. 
It was a clear obsession.

I quickly blew through my savings with my education, and after a couple of years of constant learning - I had nothing to prove for it.

Learning from Experience

Being frustrated following my lack of action, I decided it was time to start a marketing agency.

I spent around 4 months doing email & social media outreach - and managed to book just 1 meeting.

My dark history from high school shattered my confidence. I struggled to pick up the phone and cold call businesses. I feared rejection.
So much so, that while I was not getting any real results and just blowing through my savings, I was growing more and more in debt.

I realised that I knew the content. I knew how to grow a social media account, and probably do a whole load of other things - but what I did not have, was the commitment and dedication that I needed to make my dreams reality.

I started reading psychology books and defined a new obsession: learning about my psychology, with the aim to fundamentally change who I was as a person.

Building Traction

I eventually decided I was once again ready to put my skills to use - and started a YouTube channel.

I began teaching others the marketing that I knew, with two things in mind: I wanted to help others, and I wanted to prove to myself once again that I knew what I was doing.

Well, thankfully, this was where the uphill slope took off.
My channel was growing, and I started to have people from all over the world approach me for consulting services. It felt amazing to receive some recognition for all the time I spent learning my skills in the background.

But my confidence was still not all there. I would make excuses as to not work with people, and this continued until I decided that enough is enough.
I finally recommended that I get on a call with someone who had been messaging me for consulting services. We got on the call, and at the end of the call, I had my first client.

The Only Lesson I Ever Needed

It was a long road leading up to this point, but I have no regrets.

I had to crawl through the mud to learn this extremely important lesson: It was not more marketing knowledge that I needed... it was a paradigm switch. A change in my reality.

Mindset honestly is everything, and it's not currently encouraged sufficiently in the entrepreneur world.

My Next Steps

Today, I have a new mission.

I am on a mission to help entrepreneurs become entrepreneurs. It took me many years to get my mindset where it is today, and I still work on growing it every single day.

Follow my journey, and together, we will become unstoppable.
On my YouTube & social media, I will be sharing some of the biggest lessons I have learned over the past few years of my self-discovery. I will share the secrets that helped me overcome my shyness and lack of self-confidence.

I went from being the guy that couldn't even approach a prospect, to someone who has students all over the world - and more importantly, someone who achieves what they set out to.
Today, things are different for me. Tomorrow, things will be different for you.
