Hey there đź‘‹ I'm Rob Brautigam

Meet Rob Brautigam, a former cubicle-dwelling engineer turned online entrepreneur, world traveler, and visionary who has mastered the art of creating the life he desires.
It all started in 2014 when he graduated from college with a Bachelor's in Engineering and quickly realized that a traditional 9-to-5 job was not the life he wanted to lead. After reading books like "Rich Dad Poor Dad" and "Think and Grow Rich" and listening to podcasts on investment real estate and passive income, he was hooked on the idea of entrepreneurship.

In 2016, Rob made the brave decision to quit his engineering job and embark on the journey of a lifetime. He tried every business model under the sun, from Amazon FBA to ecommerce, consulting, and agency work, before finally finding success in high ticket affiliate marketing. His first million dollar year came in 2018, and he never looked back.

By 2019, Rob had built a 7 figure company in just 9 months and helped 250+ people quit their 9-to-5 jobs. He had become a sought-after speaker and hosted international entrepreneurial events for up to 300 people. He led a membership community of 10,000+ entrepreneurs, ran an affiliate platform with over 1000 affiliates, and developed a front-end marketing system responsible for $60,000,000 in sales, and growing. Along the way, he traveled the world, lived in 10 countries, explored 24 more, and developed an international network and friend group of 6, 7, 8, and 9 figure earners.

In 2020, Rob made the difficult decision to shut down his million dollar business to level up the clientele he was working with. He built a premium offer for online creators, coaches, and service providers to help them systematize and scale their businesses, taking on about 100 clients over the course of the year.

In 2021, Rob decided to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of entrepreneurship and take an infinitely long sabbatical. He moved to Mexico and spent six months focusing on personal growth, learning Spanish, and building new friendships. Eventually, he became interested in the blockchain, all things crypto and NFTs, spending the next year heads-down sometimes 20 hours per day, building a community of fellow Web3 enthusiasts and advising on several Web3 projects.

Currently, he's focused on building an AI-backed personal branding agency called "Brand Alchemy" which specializes in helping subject-matter experts and emerging thought leaders present themselves in the digital world as the superheroes they really are - Learn more about Brand Alchemy here.

As the saga continues into 2024 and beyond, Rob is always on the lookout for new opportunities, connections, and experiences.

His mission is simple:
#1) Have fun
#2) Leave the world a better place
...and do these with authenticity.

Whether it's exploring new countries, connecting with inspiring people, or building innovative businesses, Rob is always pushing the boundaries of what's possible and inspiring others to do the same.
