Bedros Keuilian is a best-selling author, speaker and business consultant. He's the founder and CEO of Fit Body Bootcamp, one of the nation’s fastest growing franchises and an investor in over a dozen companies ranging from software, digital ad agencies and coaching and consulting services.
He's known as the hidden genius that entrepreneurs, best-selling authors and thought leaders turn to when they want to create high level mastermind and coaching programs, quickly scale their businesses.
His sales, marketing, and business systems are the secret weapon used by thousands of successful digital marketers and entrepreneurs who want to reach more high paying clients and customers without the use of unpredictable or sleazy marketing tactics.
An immigrant from a communist country turned hugely successful entrepreneur, Bedros uses the stage, TV and social media platforms to share his personal Immigrant Edge and American Dream story to help inspire audiences worldwide to reach their fullest potential.
Mission: Bedros hopes to teach that at first it is about the hustle and grind to start your business, but the smart entrepreneur knows that after some time, it's about scale and strategy. He also strives to let people know how it is easier than ever to strive towards the American Dream in terms of resources, it only becomes more difficult because of the transparency so many customers want when looking into businesses.
Mistakes: He had started selling supplements online far before many people used the Internet, thus he lost $55,000 because the business was too far ahead of its time. He also started an online subscription when no one knew, liked, or trusted him, and thus he lost $126,000. He also brought in a business partner that did not do well with the company, and urges entrepreneurs to only add a partner if they bring a specialized skill or knowledge that they do not possess or care to possess to help strengthen the business.
