The Metaverse speaker and the NFT tech founder Mario Nawfal

Founder of the Athena Group of Companies, a business conglomerate that operates in more than 40 countries, Mario started his first business with $300 in the bank selling blenders door to door.

Through unconventional marketing techniques, efficient logistical systems, and a team of global contractors, he propelled Froothie to $1m in year one and over $10m in year two, all bootstrapped.
 
Since then Mario launched multiple ventures into the millions, all bootstrapped, including an events business, a FinTech consulting firm, a marketing agency and multiple ecom businesses all while surviving a massive scam, various black swan events, and all the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. He continues to launch new companies, is a partner at a law firm and the founder of a VC fund.
 
In 2020, Mario decided to begin documenting his journey and helping other entrepreneurs at no cost, all while traveling the world pursuing his hobby dancing Bachata. The journey & the hustle continue…

Smart work is predominantly doing the RIGHT thing. No matter how hard you grind, if your compass is off, you are screwed. The number of people I have come across who have been hustling for years and don’t seem to move forward is sad…. And what’s more sad is how obvious it is that their compass was way off! This is close to insanity, doing the same thing again and again expecting a different outcome...
