“When your mind is stretched by a new experience, it will never go back to its old dimensions.” For 21-year-old entrepreneur Zach Cellette all it took was one new opportunity to expand his mindset and perspectives on his financial future, taking a new direction in life towards endless possibilities.
His introduction to entrepreneurship was a day he will never forget as he continues to build his thriving business dedicated to sharing news and innovative ideas about finances and freedom with the masses. Every day, Zach pushes himself and his team to new levels of growth – here’s how!
Born and raised in Elk River, Minnesota, Zach’s first employment was at a grocery store at the age of 15 where he was able to learn the value of a dollar and save up to buy his first truck at 16. Even from this first job, Zach always had a passion for bringing value to people even in small ways:
“It wasn’t the most entertaining job, but I got into the mindset that people are coming to the grocery store after a long day at work and I’m helping them to get this done faster so they can go home and relax.”
Zach attended Anoka Ramsey Community College for one semester before deciding to attend a trade school to give him real-life experience for a lucrative career. After receiving his Electrical Lineman Diploma, Zach started on the job working in Wisconsin.
On October 3rd, 2020, Zach was introduced to an unexpected opportunity that would alter the course of his life – network marketing and trading in the financial markets. Although unfamiliar with the concept, Zach recognized the potential in the business model and seized the opportunity…and his mindset has never been the same since.
To date, Zach has created his own organization called “Bunch of Aces” which focused on bringing a new way of thinking about finances to the masses. Zach understands the power new information can have on one’s mindset. He wants to give others the chance to learn about the possibilities outside of a 9-5 employment that can create new avenues to financial freedom they may never have known were attainable.
When discussing the concept behind his business, Zach says:
When I was introduced to this it created completely new ideas in my head. Finding out that there was a way out of working every single day until I’m 60 was life-changing; this was my chance. At the end of the day, money is great but I want to be free. I don’t want to be told what to do every day or how much I’m getting paid or when I can go home – I want to make those decisions and I can guarantee that most people if given the choice, would want to make those decisions for themselves too. Through Bunch of Aces, we’re introducing this new concept to people that, hey, we’re not required to work a 9-5 our whole life, there’s another option and this is it.
For Zach, the freedom to live his life on his own terms is what he coveted and has achieved, and with his business growing to a global scale, he is focused on presenting the opportunity to as many people as possible. Strong leadership skills are crucial for continued success in managing a large team of individuals from all over the world. Zach has had to step outside of his comfort zone and into his growth zone, working consistently towards improving not only his skill sets but his mindset with a dedication to consistent results.
When discussing how he’s overcome issues with self-confidence to become the assertive leader he is today, Zach says:
Growing up, I wasn’t so talkative or outgoing, and as that type of person, I was also attracting people like that into my life, so I wasn’t really surrounded by people who were pushing me to be more talkative. And that’s something that’s always been difficult for me in a lot of different circumstances. For example, even in a classroom, if you’re that quiet guy, it’s hard to ask questions, it’s hard to reach out for help; when you’re playing sports, it’s hard to connect with your team. So I had these inner problems that I had to deal with and grow out of. When I found out about what my life could really be like with this business, I wanted it. And I knew that in order to achieve it I had to change what I was doing, I had to get out of my comfort zone. I had to get used to talking to people on zoom, on the phone instead of through text, and just over time it became second nature. Like everything else you do, it gets easier and you get better. You just have to be determined to make the change because you know the outcome will be worth it.
With Bunch of Aces flourishing and Zach’s dedication to sharing his innovative ideas with the masses, he is definitely a businessman to watch as he grows his entrepreneurial empire. In closing, Zach shares his best pieces of advice for those looking to take their financial futures into their own hands.
- Stay close to the fire. “Be around people who have what you want and do as they do so you can have what they have.”
- Applied knowledge is power. “You can learn as much as you want but if you’re not applying what you’re learning, you’re just entertaining yourself, you’re not educating yourself.”
- Listen to motivational audios. “Everyone has rough days, what helps me is listening to audio. Everyone has access to YouTube – just hop on there and there are millions of motivational and free videos to watch to keep you inspired.”
- Continuously grow. “Who you are now is not who you’re going to be 10 years from now. Inevitably you’re going to change as you grow. So why not change for the better. Why not focus on making positive changes no matter how small. Should you wait 10 years and then change, or should you start working on yourself from now to stay ahead of the curve? The answer is now.”
