Stephen has experience as a successful entrepreneur and investor in the NYC nightlife scene, sports memorabilia sales, real estate, fashion, and musician management. Stephen is currently managing multiple businesses in these fields on top of maintaining important revenue producing relationships.
Stephen saw his first profitable business during his Sophomore year of high school when he started a high-end sports memorabilia company. Growing up playing baseball, his fandom introduced him to the world of game worn jerseys, but the profit margins are what motivated him to dive deeper. Ahead of the curve, he quickly became an early adopter of online marketing techniques, which opened doors to even bigger possibilities. “I remember being in high school and negotiating a deal to buy all of Michael’ Vick’s game worn jerseys,” recalls Stephen. “I had to convince my father to drive me to Philadelphia to do the exchange at Mike’s apartment. My dad thought I was crazy,” Stephen adds. That deal, and a few like it, led to Stephen quickly running one of the most successful independent sports memorabilia companies in the country.
With the relationships made from the success of his first company, Stephen quickly proposed a deal to his father to become partners in an entertainment company with him in order to leverage his newfound network of athletes. Soon, Stephen had organized social events surrounding significant sporting contests and in 2011, they successfully executed multiple events for Super Bowl XLV. Due to Stephen’s burgeoning network of high- profile contacts, their events were often sponsored by major brands such as Facebook, Sports Illustrated, and featured performances from musical acts like The Black-Eyed Peas, P Diddy, Diplo and more.
By Stephen’s senior year of high school, he was faced with the difficult decision of going college for D1 baseball or remaining in New York to continue his entrepreneurial endeavors. After one semester of trying to make both work, Stephen made the decision to move back to NYC and forgo his athletic career to focus on growing his businesses full time. Soon, he had started his own events management company and began building relationships with prestigious clubs and restaurants all over the city, including Tao Group, 1Oak Night Club, as well as famed restaurant Cipriano. Stephen quickly found himself being introduced to a new world of opportunities and determined to take advantage, he started his next venture.
Having just turned 20, Stephen was presented with the opportunity to manage a relatively unknown musical artist at the time by the name of Bryson Tiller. Armed with an eagerness to learn and an extensive network ready to activate, Stephen quickly relocated the struggling artist to New York to allow him to focus on his career full time. Within a few short months, Stephen and his partners were able to secure that artist a major label recording contract with RCA Records, culminating in a platinum selling album and numerous Grammy nominations. Having seen how quickly an artist can rise to prominence with the right team behind them, Stephen soon went on to start his own independent record label called Loyalty Records with his childhood best friend Peter Ashley. The duo have since signed 8 acts thus far to a roster that includes producer phenomsKBeaZy (Kehlani’s “Toxic” and Kyle Stemberger (Jorja Smith’s “Be Honest”.)
As an investor though, Stephen has not only limited himself to talent. In his portfolio, you will also find brand and products that aim to be high quality and health conscious such as Barely Bread, a certified non-GMO, gluten free bread company or FLOW Water, a 100 percent alkaline spring water with celebrity backed investments from actress Gwyneth Paltrow and musical artist Shawn Mendes. With anything Stephen commits to, whether it’s a product or an artist, he has to believe in what the vision is.
Having found great success in numerous different sectors, Stephen is constantly looking for new ways to innovate and vertically integrate his businesses. His latest endeavor, a mini-series focusing on fine food and influential chefs, looks to explore the stories behind some of the city’s most iconic restaurants, something Stephen’s 25 years in New York has taught him all too much about. The project was slated to go into production this coming summer and will be available to the public in early 2021.
Emerging as the go-to app creator, mentor, and entrepreneur, make way for Tyler Boswel
He has grown as a self-made legit app creator and entrepreneur, helping others make millions without having to learn any coding.
A lot has already been spoken about entrepreneurs and experts fighting tooth and nail to make their prominent mark in their chosen industries. But, how many times have people heard about those who have put others first in their quest to achieve excellence and success in their industries? Well, there have been a few who have done even that, and with their knowledge, expertise and experience have added more value into people’s lives, becoming self-made and influential success stories. Sharing his knowledge for the good and impacting lives for the better is one such young entrepreneur named Tyler Boswel, who, without having to learn to code, has been helping people make hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The only 20-year-old entrepreneur is more than what meets the eye. He is also an app creator and mentor who, through his App Formula Masterclass, helps budding talents to launch profitable apps and earn as many returns through the same as possible. He loves teaching budding entrepreneurs a business model that legit works, making him a legit mentor, app creator, and entrepreneur, unlike many others in the industry, who only claim big things.
However, this youngster’s first venture was not this; he had first dipped his hands in dropshipping and then faced 3-4 failed businesses until he became knowledgeable enough to get his first million. Creating apps always intrigued and excited him, and he knew there was more to it than people already knew. He turned into an app creator and created three successful apps without any coding knowledge, emphasizing the fact that creating apps was way easier than people thought. The belief that it is difficult to create apps has not made the markets oversaturated, and hence, he says that opportunities are aplenty to succeed in the same.
Tyler Boswel attributes a major part of his success to his mentor, who motivated him to stick with this business and helped him understand the importance of patience and resilience, practicing which has today helped him become a success story. His team has grown tremendously today, with 17 high-performing professionals working full-time on his apps and mentoring program.
At 20 years, Tyler Boswel (@tylertheappcreator) has proved his mettle already and now can’t wait to impact more lives positively.
The Future of Elevate with Sebastian Beja
What obstacles did you have to overcome in getting to where you are today?
Focusing on my Mindset. I needed to change how I thought about money and how I thought about my work.
The biggest shift was when I stopped focusing on making more money and started focusing on what I could do to help others. When I felt I had no purpose in my work, it was because I was so focused on how much money I could bring in, with no reason or higher impact behind it. But once I recalibrated my inner compass to focus on that impact, everything fell into place.
It was amazing how much more passionate and excited I was to do my work when I really felt it was having a positive impact on the world.
What has surprised you most about running your own business?
Business is more of a spiritual gamethan anything else. It’s about helping others and adding value to their lives. I’ve realized that I’m in that frame of mind everything just becomes easier, Money, opportunities, growth etc
When you’re clear on what you want, who you want to help, what your values are, and what your mission is everything happens a lot quicker than you think it will and with a lot more ease.
What are you looking forward to in the future?
Recently, we launched what we call a platform of opportunities (like a marketplace of jobs) that provides extra income opportunities and employability to our graduates that do our money-mindset and skill-set programs. This new initiative make sense as now we have more than 3,000 students worldwide and 2,000 in LATAM in just 1 year.
We have had many success stories from our students applying the mindset and technical skill-set we teach them. They have been able to create anywhere from $2,000 USD, $5,000 USD, $20,000 USD and even $100,000 USD either in their existing job or in their own business. Others have been able to to get out of debt and economic stagnation.
This project seeks to bring down three industries.
First, the digital courses with very high prices and that do not transform people.
Second, the traditional education industry that is exclusive, expensive and semi-obsolete.
Third, the HR industry that charges a lot of money to get capable people with good mindsets and lucrative skills.
This will happen in the next 3-5 years through our Elevate programs and our new platform that focuses on connecting our students with lucrative employability opportunities in the US and LATAM companies in less than 90 days, after taking our programs.
