My name is Billy Murphy. I’m based in Austin, TX but travel often. Most recently I spent several months in Medellin (Colombia), Ubud (Bali), and Cape Town (South Africa).
My first taste of making money was at 9 years old slinging newspapers. After that I was hooked.
I had my first entrepreneurial venture when I was 17. I bought and sold large sports card collections, often sneaking large quantities of cards into the house when my parents weren’t home because they didn’t want me buying anymore. I could barely get into my bed since I had boxes stacked all over my room.
When I went to college, I learned…well, not much. I learned that the things I was learning outside the classroom were going to take me a lot further than the things I was learning in it.
After college I got a job at a company straight out of a scene from “Boiler Room.” I left shortly after, and have been “ForeverJobless” ever since. It’s been the best decision I ever made.
I played poker professionally for 3-4 years, and then started a poker training company as well as a poker media company. I landed it on Fox News just two months after launch, and grew it into a 7 figure business by the 2nd year.
After that I ventured into the world of e-commerce stores, and ended up with 15-20 stores my first year.
I’m currently writing my first book, and hope to hear from you soon. Let me know how I can help you.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.
