About Steven Mayer
Hi, I’m Steven Mayer, and I’d like to share a bit of my story with you.

I grew up in Calgary, Canada to a normal, blue-collar, working-class family, and I didn’t know anything else. I was taught to keep my head down, live frugally, and pursue the traditional white-collar path of college into a corporate job.

In fact, when I told my parents I wanted to become a police officer, I became the family ''success'' story. 

But all that would soon change...
The First Epiphany
One weekend, I was sitting in a coffee shop flipping through a newspaper and came across something interesting. 

It was a real estate ad for an upcoming event 'Learn to become financially free - with Real Estate'. I remember re-reading the ad over and over again and getting more and more excited. 

So I decided to attend the event.  I sat at the front of the stage and towards the end of the presentation, the real estate speaker ask to bring someone on stage. 

He looked around and after 30 seconds pointed at me. 

He brought me on stage, gave me the microphone and asked me a very important question: ''Steven what do you want to do when you become older?''

With pride and confidence I replied ' A police officer'...

The next words out of his mouth changed my life. 

''If you become a police officer, you will be poor for the rest of your life'' - Those were his exact words. 

He proceeded to turn around, pick up a book and told me to read it. 

The book was 'Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. 

I finished the book in 2 days and my perspective of life and business completely changed. 
If At First You Don’t Succeed
I think if there is one thing that defines me it’s that when I identify what I want, I go after it completely.

As soon as I had identified that entrepreneurship was what I wanted, I quit my job, and got to work.

The next 9 years, I proceeded to start and fail 26 business while having 16 different jobs.  

- Penny Auction Website
- Weight Loss Challenge
- Coin Processor
- Clothing website
- Restaurant
- Hookah lounge
- Door to door selling 
- Cleaning company 
- Car detailing
- Network Marketing x 3

To name a few of the companies I started. 

Every single business failed miserably...

But if at first you don’t succeed...

You keep trying, so I keep pushing and trying different things. 

Back to the drawing board. 

At this point, I was all out of money and thousands in debt. If I wanted to take another stab at entrepreneurship, I was going to need some capital.

One skill I had picked up while running my business was sales, so to chip away at my debt and begin building some capital for my next venture, I took on a 100% commission sales job. 

I quickly became the #1 sales rep for the company earning over 6-figures per month and was eventually offered a position as the Vice President of sales. 
The Second Epiphany
As any entrepreneur will tell you, no matter how much you earn at your job, the goal is to have financial freedom building your own dreams. 

Over the years I had forgotten about what I really wanted, I had forgotten about the book that changed my thinking. 

Im a true believer that everything happens for a reason.

One random day while I was out shopping, I ran into an old friend of mine that I haven't seen in years. After all the small talk we proceeded to ask each other what we did for work. 

I told him that I worked for a credit repair company, managing people and earning good money. 

What he told me next, changed my life...

He mention that he was selling products on Amazon. 

I remember like it was yesterday when I said this to him''Does it really work?''

He proceeded to answer my question by showing me his Amazon account. He was making over $300K per month!

I almost had a mini heart attack in the mall.

He continued by saying it was now on auto pilot and he was only putting around 15 hours per week into the business. 

It was then and there that I quickly understood the Amazon opportunity and knew that I had to jump on board. 
My Failing Amazon Business
As you probably already guessed I failed miserably with Amazon.

I spent the first 11 months learning...


Spending over $40K on dying products...

I had credit card debts...

I was stressted...

I wanted to quit...

But I knew if my friend and others did it, I could also do it. 

Something changed on month 12 of my business. 

I figured out a new new method to doing product research, a new method nobody was talking about, a new method nobody was teaching. 

I invested another 10K, my last 10K...

Month 1, I ended up making 10K!

Month 2, I made 15K!  I had figured out a new method to doing Amazon. I started getting confidence. 

Year 2 the business generated over $200K and that's when I knew I had to share this with others! 
Coaching & Consulting
One side effect of mastering a skill that everyone needs is that everyone wants to learn it or benefit from it in some way.

I started posting in FB groups and helping everyone and anyone I could. 

At first I would coach 1-on-1, but as demand increased, I expanded to coaching groups of 5 and then 10 at a time. 

And I knew that if I wanted to expand past groups of 10, I would need to create some form of training that would be valuable to students without my direct involvement.

Accordingly I began working on creating a course that anyone could take online and learn how to build their own business in a relatively short period of time.

That is when the FBA Freedom Hackers Academy was born. 

I knew when I first launched the FBA Academy to a group of 20 students that I had created something special, but even I couldn’t have predicted just how popular and successful this course would be.

The methods taught in the FBA academy have been battle tested and proven with over 540 students around the world. 

The program has created 2 millionaires, 100 six-figure earners, and 224 people have been able to quit their 9-5 jobs. Our students have made over $32,000,000 in reported income.

With over 500 testimonials on our website, the program is proven more than anything else available online.
