College Dropout to True Abundance and Financial Freedom with Billy Gene Shaw III
Let's get to the show...

There are literally thousands of ways to earn extra income, a full time income or even build an empire for yourself and your family. However, as Billy Gene points out, most will not do anything different than they have been doing for years. Billy Gene and I talk about how you can break free and finally earn the freedom you desire.

Billy Gene Shaw III was born and raised in San Diego, CA, attended the University of San Diego, never graduated...and is now the CEO of a 7-figure Ads agency and a father to the beautiful Kaialani. Yes, it's true, Billy serves as the president of one of the world's leading digital advertising school and has learned personally from Frank Kern and Grant Cardone. The Billy Gene Is Marketing, Inc agency specializes in customer acquisition and teaches marketers how to use social media to get ROI for local businesses.
