Sam Ovens – Entrepreneur and Millionaire Consultant
Sam Ovens is the founder of OVENS International, a digital marketing consulting company that offers clients e-learning opportunities and programs in which the skills and strategies necessary for success as a consultant are clearly outlined.
Sam, who earned more than $10 million just four years after founding OVENS International, has since helped well over 100 of his clients go on to earn six-figures through their consulting businesses and nine more of his clients have used Sam’s training program to become millionaire consultants in a shorter period of time than Sam himself.
Where were you born?
I was born in New Zealand and raised in Auckland, but I eventually moved to the United States after experiencing the immediate and remarkable success of OVENS International and SnapInspect. I’m currently a proud New Yorker living and working in Manhattan.
What’s your favorite T.V. show?
It is not all that often that I turn on the television, but if I do, it is usually to watch Shark Tank. I’ve been a fan of Mark Cuban ever since reading one of his books early in my entrepreneurial career.
What are your aspirations in life?
I have always had a tendency to pursue the kind of lofty goals that others criticize as unrealistic, and that has worked out quite well for me so far.
Since I have already achieved so much for myself, my aspirations are now focused on helping others enjoy the kind of wealth and freedom I have enjoyed as a direct result of my successful entrepreneurial endeavors.
What’s one thing you’ve learned since you started your career?
The most important thing I have ever learned is that the traditional approaches to business and the commonplace advice given to young professionals as they enter the workforce should be completely ignored.
The traditionally espoused approach to a professional career is a sure path to mediocrity and disappointment, not to mention the resulting failure to reach one’s true potential. I have enjoyed a successful career as an entrepreneur precisely because I ignored the traditional approach and developed my own program for building a business capable of generating tremendous wealth.
What was your first job?
My first job was as a marketing intern for a large corporation in Auckland, New Zealand. Perhaps unsurprisingly, my corporate internship didn’t last very long at all and only served to reinforce my belief in the value of pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors.
Given my lofty aspirations and total unwillingness to settle for a position lacking any opportunity for rapid advancement, my experience as a corporate professional was incredibly short-lived.
