Hard work is an essential part of success. While there are those who claim that working hard is not the sole ingredient for achieving one’s goals, it has been proven in a study conducted by students of the University of Ghana in 2015 that relentless work does yield favorable results in terms of career progression and development. In fact, another thesis from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga also supports this in the context of musical ability. It found that, contrary to popular belief, music is a learned skill rather than hard work. In short, hard work can indeed pay off.
But working hard can mean different things to different people. After all, each journey is different. Some start young, while others achieve success later in life.
Carter Jamison belongs to the first group. It may come as a surprise, but this up-and-coming entrepreneur is currently finishing senior high. Still, his successes on the business front are comparable to, if not better than, other much older players in the same industry.
What Hard Work Means for Carter Jamison
One can say that Carter Jamison is a busy and hardworking man.
Jamison is juggling school work, running celebrity giveaways, and operating three more startups. And he just turned 18!
Jamison credits most of his success to his tenacity and hard work. But what does hard work mean for this budding serial entrepreneur?
1. Start early
The first and probably most obvious factor for Jamison is his age. His first venture was a meme account that he started when he was only in seventh grade. While his friends and classmates simply consumed memes for fun, Jamison was able to grow multiple meme pages to over a million followers. He later sold promotions on these accounts for up to $150 per promotion.
This early work gave Jamison the headstart he needed to begin his other businesses. It gave him connections even after moving out of the meme account space to enter the celebrity giveaway market.
2. Work fast
For Carter Jamison, hard work is synonymous with working fast. Jamison admits that his quick turnaround time makes him stand out versus other celebrity giveaway organizers. Currently, he can run one to two giveaway campaigns per week, which most other players can’t do.
He also scales new clients, existing client followers, and connections daily to make all of this possible.
Of course, he also ensures that his speedy delivery does not affect the quality of his service.
“I work as hard as possible to reply to everyone instantly and stay on top of everything,” says Jamison. “This makes it easy for my clients to know that their funds are safe with me and that I will always deliver.”
3. Hire and partner with good people
Jamison shares that working hard alone is not enough to build a credible and outstanding brand. That’s why he also prioritizes hiring and partnering with people who have the same beliefs and work ethics as him.
Jamison’s team is composed of 56 kids from his high school who get paid in commissions for bringing new clients in. With this system, he reaches about 2,800 to 8,400 potential clients per day, which helps him grow his brand exponentially.
At the same time, he is also partnering with the number one celebrity giveaway company, HighKey Enterprises, who have both the mastery and the clout to launch bigger and better campaigns for their clients.
After employing these three pillars of hard work, Carter Jamison has managed to establish himself as one of the frontrunners in the social media marketing space. He proved that no matter how young, one can achieve greatness by working hard.
