Building the American dream from scratch is no joke. With the rise of globalism and the skyrocketing population and businesses in the US, the American dream looks more and more impossible to achieve. People often immigrate to the United States with high hopes, and a bright future in mind. It soon, however, becomes apparent that things are not as easy as they seem. Jad Kantari took on the ultimate challenge of being an outsider and making it big in America.

The American dream is a golden mirage for most people. However, Kantari was always thinking ahead. He had a vision when he arrived in the United States. Kantari immigrated to the US from Lebanon in 2009. In just 3 years, he generated an awe-inspiring $25 million from numerous businesses and brands and all of them from the ground up. He generated $13 million in 2018 and he’s well on way to make $15 million in 2021 - despite the pandemic.

Kantari’s success did not just emerge from nothing. Kantari lived in Lebanon for 18 years - a country where even electricity is a luxury. During his early days, when he was the one with a dream and the fire and passion to pursue it he came across people who did not believe in him nor his ideas. He was told he couldn’t do it or he wouldn’t be able to do it over and over again. The only thing that kept him fueled was his passion and his dream to make it big.

Generating over $25 million in just 3 years is a strong indicator for someone who’s made it. Kantari plans to move further with his ambition. There is currently no one that is able to make low ticket products work because the cost of Facebook ads is increasingly high. Kantari however, is the best at what he does, and he was able to generate $15m+ a year from low ticket products.

Risks and challenges are second nature to any business - these odds become higher if you’re playing in the big leagues. In 2019, Kantari made a very poor business decision. Some rather risky business decisions led to him losing almost everything and it put him back to square one. Years of his blood and sweat were wiped over the course of a year due to some bad partnerships combined with bad business decisions.

These kinds of set-backs usually make people give up; however, Kantari saw this as a lesson that propelled him to build himself back up again.

Kantari advises everyone to be humble, humble of your beginnings and where you are. Life has taught him that things can take quick turns and we should always remember the hard times.

Kantari plans to expand his brand. By his projection, his e-commerce brands will be generating an impressive $200m+ in a few years and he plans to take it to an international level. His end goal is not just to build more brands but to provide value and to have an impact on this world. Kantari wants to be proud of the legacy he leaves behind.
