She proved people wrong — and made money moves.
Self-made millionaire Amy Vanderputte claimed last month that she made millions at the age of 27 after launching her own business-oriented podcast, called “FastForwardAmy,” even though several people opposed the project.
“One moment you’re recording your first podcast — which everyone thinks is a stupid idea,” reads the in-video caption of a TikTok showing Vanderputte’s debut recording session.
“The next you’re walking into your indoor pool of the million-dollar mansion you bought all by yourself,” reads a caption on the second half of the clip, showcasing a dark-tiled pool area with floor-to-ceiling windows.
The podcast features several tips and tricks the Belgium business coach says are essential to those wishing to follow in her footsteps.
“FastForwardAmy gives you the shortcuts you need to make complicated stuff simple,” reads the description on the entrepreneur’s website. “From pricing your service to building your personal brand online and making more money so you can level up your business… she will walk you through how to do it all.”
Vanderputte, 30, has also dedicated her TikTok to providing aspiring money-makers with all the game-changers she has learned while setting up her businesses.
One video posted by the millionaire details the top three things she claims will harm you on the way to making riches.
“The first thing is taking advice from people who haven’t been where you want to go or who have no authority,” said Vanderputte, adding that you wouldn’t take medical advice from someone unhealthy, so why would you do it when it came to your business?
Perfectionism, according to Vanderputte, is the second thing that people need to let go of when starting a business.
“What you think is being smart and making things perfect is actually a fear of failure in disguise,” explains Vanderputte. “Fear of failure can actually really paralyze you and it tricks your brain into thinking it just needs to be more perfect. I just need to get it better.
“But in reality, you’re not going to learn from having a really perfect plan — you’re going to learn from actually doing things. So time will pass anyways; might as well start taking action and start learning,” continued Vanderputte.
The third and final roadblock, says Vanderputte, is that instead of “waiting for the right time,” just do it now.
“I know that it doesn’t seem like the right time right now,” said Vanderputte.”But it’s never actually the right time. Times will always be busy. There will always be something happening in the economy.
“And if it’s never the right time, that means it’s always the right time,” concluded Vanderputte.
Vanderputte is not the only person who made millions at a young age.
Australian native Pixie Curtis revealed earlier this year that she makes $133,000 a month from selling hair accessories.
Another 22-year-old self-proclaimed millionaire claimed that people are “mindlessly wasting their lives” working 9-to-5 jobs.
Cam Moar, who made his riches by selling products through e-commerce, told Jam Press that people “are taught that all you do in life is go to school, then get a degree or a trade, buy a house and spend the rest of your life paying it off.”
Moar later founded an e-commerce firm in 2020 called “6 Figure Drop Shipper,” where he works two to three hours a day teaching people the art of the e-commerce industry.
The Australian native now makes $250,000 per month and is worth $1 million.
