This is a quick bio of the co-creator of Build My List Jimmy Kim. Always an entrepreneur even as a kid, Jimmy pursued in the direction of some type of business that interested him at the time. whether it be washing cars to a lemonade stand.
However, his love of cars (Volkswagons mostly) drew him to that industry. This is a similar story I heard before but of someone I know personally only not as impressive as Jimmy’s. You see Jimmy did start out washing cars then on to selling cars and became quite good fast and was dubbed “top sales guy.”
But peep the progression of his rise in this dealership. At age 20 he moved up to slaes manager, from there the general sales manager. Let’s stop right there for just a second and take that in. Heck, I’m very impressed with that alone! Jimmy does not stop there., he went on to become finance maager to finance director, and at the very young age of 25 became the youngest general manager in all of General Motors at the time. That’s a meteoric rise!
Back then you may be aware that the auto industry was experiencing some turbulent time to say the least. Saturn was bankrupt so Jimmy had to figure out what was coming next. Well, those owners then decided they were going to open up a KIA dealership and wanted Jimmy to head that up plus become part owner. He was making a sweet multi six figures for all his hard work but he actually turned down that offer.
As with anything else, we all come to a fork in the road.
It was no different with Jimmy. He dicided it was time to move on, so at the ripe old age of 28 he gingerly dove into a whole new arena. One of Jimmy’s good friends happened to be a top, very well known email marketer. Though Jimmy had no idea what that really entailed, he figured it was something spammy.
He asked for him to show him me what you do. Jimmy shadowed him for a bit, but wasn’t really getting it… It took Jimmy close to 12-18 months to really get it going from scratch. The big decision was to move forward with email marketing full throttle, and that’s what he did.
Ultimately, let me give you another statistic that will sure to “wow” you – or it should. Jimmy Kim is responsible for over $50,000,000 in online product sales! To clarify a bit… He’s been apart of some of the biggest product launches in the world that has occurred in the last 6 years or so.
