Africa should strategically and fully utilize his expertise.
He is known as the World’s #No 1 Wealth Coach.
He’s name is JT Foxx.
JT has become one of the top platform speakers in the world and has been deemed the world’s #1 wealth coach as seen and heard on television, in radio and print.
Foxx, turning 37 this year, has been a radio and TV personality for the past years, and has worked with some of the biggest business names in the world from Donald Trump, Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Steve Wozniak (Apple Co-Founder), Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jack Welch, Kathy Ireland, Speaker of the House Denny Hastert, Senator McCain, Rev Jesse Jackson among others.
Steve Wozniak, Apple Co-Founder says, “JT Foxx is the closest person I’ve ever met to Steve Jobs.”
Recently, he ran the Mega Partnering Africa where the world and continent’s top entrepreneurs, CEOs, executives, and celebrities share their secrets to prosperity.
While Mega Partnering is with the former being regarded as the world’s number one wealth networking and business conference attracting attendees from all over the globe who come to learn, earn, and return.
What is most important to JT, are his philanthropic endeavors with youth entrepreneurs and kids with cancer.
But can JT help Africa to reach its full potential? Time will certainly tell.
And as Michael Fleshman, former editor of the Africa Renewal magazine, puts it, “Africa is finally emerging out of economic obscurity into the global mainstream, posting impressive growth figures in many countries for the past decade and becoming a major destination for international investors in sectors as diverse as energy and mining to telecommunications, fashion and infrastructure development.”
And this week, it was reported that Africa’s CEOs are confident that the outlook for business on the continent remains positive notwithstanding the unpredictable economic and socio-political climate.
It is in this spirit that a serial entrepreneur like JT Foxx would want to re-commit his work to a continent that shows great promise for the future and for the world.
With Africa’s biggest economy Nigeria, boasting more than 37 million registered small businesses.
And South Africa, at #NO 2, with the most advanced economy and leading financial services sector, the sky is the limit for Africa’s development.
Tycoons of Wealth, one his many programmes has been promised to be bigger and better than ever before, with Randi Zuckerberg (Former VP of Marketing for Facebook and she is Mark Zuckerberg’s sister), South African IT billionaire and entrepreneurRobert Gumede, and South Africa’s very own Olympic Gold Medalist Wayde van Niekerk.
J.T. Foxx started investing with nothing more than a rusted out Ford pick-up truck, $974 dollars and 1 cheap suit. And just 6 years later, by 2015, JT had acquired and sold over 500 properties. He had closed over $40 million in real estate deals.
JT advises that people must stop blaming the economy and create your own. “You can’t sit around and wait for things to get better; you have to make it happen.”
Also known as a branding and marketing genius, JT Foxx owns over 50 companies and brands in everything from education, technology, real estate, clothing, diamonds, insurance, lending and internet presence.
He is the author of the highly acclaimed book “Millionaire Underdog: Against All Odds”; which some top entrepreneurs say is the greatest book on how to start, grow and explode any business.
JT also does business in more than 40 countries worldwide.
South Africa’s Tycoons of Wealth is due to to take later in the year in August.
The JT Foxx M.B.A. is the newly developed sister event that is replacing Mega Partnering that was formerly held all over the world.
The JT Foxx M.B.A, or as some are calling it the Family First Reunion, is the new must attend World Summit for business owners, entrepreneurs, real estate investors, start-ups and people who want to further their careers.
The Top 1% Experience is an exclusive experience that draws entrepreneurs from all over the world, allowing you to connect with JT’s top students and personal business associates. This One-Of-A-Kind event affords you direct access to JT’s inner circle all while spending three full days with him and other a-list speakers in his home.
“You may have the loftiest goals, the highest ideals, the noblest dreams; but remember this, nothing works unless you do.” says Dr. Nido Qubein, “To create a legacy, and truly leave a lasting impact on the world you want to build an Empire. That is what true legendary entrepreneurs like Richard Branson, have done, and what JT Foxx is doing.”
JT notes, “As a serial entrepreneur and the world’s #1 wealth coach, I have come to see a disturbing trend. I do business and speak in over 40 countries all over the world, and I often find many businesses succumb to trying to model themselves after other successful companies; such as an Uber, or an AirB&B. They are comfortable with the thought of “as long as I grow, it doesn’t matter if I make money”. They think growth will one day equate to dollars.
In this regard, Amazon lost money for over 10 years before finally turning a profit and now they are worth billions.
In fact, many of them were worth billions before they even made 1 cent. Silicon valley dubs them as “unicorns”. The definition of a unicorn company is one that is relatively young and new yet worth at least 1 billion and not one of them is making any money. The problem for every Uber, and SnapChat out there, there are hundreds of thousands of other businesses that fail with this type of business model, and they are pretty much worthless.”
JT continues, “I own many companies and brands and my philosophy is quite simple, I find ways to make money from day 1 when I start any company. Profits are more important than growth. In order for a business to survive today’s ever challenging economic times it must have sustainability, predictability, and consistency. I made the mistake a couple of years ago by growing too fast too quick and before I knew it, my profit margin went from 32.7% to 8.4%. In fact, I had to change my entire business model to stop the bleeding.”
JT Foxx’s various coaching organizations have widely been hailed as the world’s top organization.
What makes his organization unique and a leader in this field, is two folds. One is the culture that has been built based on a “Powered by Your Success” philosophy. That basically means, “the more successful our clients are the more successful we become as an organization.”
“Our second is our #FamilyFirst mantra. We treat all our clients as if they were our family and as cliche as it may sound, it’s what has really differentiated ourselves from the rest of the competition. Every client is assigned to a personal relationship manager who is a liaison between you and the coach and constantly is in contact with the client. They are like accountability partners and also track your progress and report back to the director of coaching, the CEO and even sometimes Mr. Foxx personally.
In addition, “We take our coaching very seriously. We coach in the areas of business, start ups, real estate, internet marketing, passive income and mindset. Most of our coaches are people who have been coached personally with JT Foxx or have taken our 3 day intensive coaching certification process. We don’t teach from a manual or a script every coach is individually matched based on experience, needs and desired outcome.”
As of 2012, an estimated 1.07 billion people were living in 54 different countries in Africa.
And with the African economy which consists mainly of trade, industry, agriculture, and human resources of the continent, JT who refers to himself as a ‘Student of Results’, can connect the dots for the continent’s glory.
Africa remains a resource-rich continent, yet up until now the continent has not been able to provide a poverty and underdevelopment free standard for the majority of its citizens.
Perhaps, the likes of JT Foxx will add a trick or two to get Africa ahead.
