Lost Tapes: Mara Glazer - Cut The Crap

May 16, 2017

I DIDN’T ALWAYS LIVE MY ENTREPRENEUR DREAM LIFE!

I used to be a miserable employee to a corporate job in the NYC fashion industry (I say “miserable” because making $35k a year in the BIG APPLE should be illegal!). I had no money. I lived in a strange city with no friends, and to top it off, my boss was a b*tch (more like a MEGA B*TCH! to be exact!) Luckily, I don’t have to worry about that anymore. Now, I own a business that allows for me to spend time with my amazing friends and family when I WANT to, travel the world as I please, and work through my bucket list on the regular. (You can learn more about my bucket list at the bottom of this page.)

Now, I don’t say this to brag. Not at all. I say this to let you know what’s possible because if a 30-something year old girl like me can learn to do it, a girl who struggled through school so much that some of my teachers straight out gave up on me (true story! – Actually I’ll share it below on this page), then you can learn to do it, too.

In 2003 I had my spine fused with two titanium rods, and then in 2009, because of all of the pressure and tension in my back from the rods, and also from the crazy stress of my job, I actually tore my spine. I couldn’t walk. The furthest I could go was from my bedroom to my bathroom, and then from my bathroom back to my bedroom. I couldn’t drive. I certainly couldn’t work. And there was really not that much I could do. It was in that moment that I knew that I couldn’t have a 9-5 job anymore, and I couldn’t work for someone else anymore, because I needed the freedom to take care of myself when I needed to.

 

 

Somehow in 2009, after 6 months of convincing, I talked my dad, Bill Glazer, into allowing me to work for him at the company he founded, Glazer-Kennedy Insider’s Circle (now known as GKIC), a company he built into the largest provider of marketing and money-making information to small business owners around the globe. Some say he’s a legend. (To me, he’s just my Pops!) Some say I’m part of the lucky sperm club! (But if you know me, you know I worked damn hard to be where I am today! No handouts. No hall passes. I had to earn my spot!) He gave me one job: figure out how to make money with social media, OR I was out! (At the time, I didn’t even know what social media was.)

So I spent the next months inhaling all of the information I could get my hands on about making money using social media…

implementing that information…
testing that information…
and tracking that information…

The Result – an additional 7 figures in less than 278 days using social and alternative media! (Yep! That’s a million bucks!)
You may be thinking, Holy Cow! (I know I was!)

Soon after, he got an offer from a venture capital firm to buy his business, which he sold, and I was quickly reminded that I wasn’t the employee type, so I ventured out on my own and started my own business, at the age of 26.
