Evan Carmichael is an entrepreneur, international speaker, and founder of EvanCarmichael.com. Evan’s mission is to help entrepreneurs succeed. 

Evan seemed to be a slow learner. At the age of 3, He spent a lot of time sitting under his desk instead of participating in class. His mom started to notice some serious changes in Evan as he went from being an active child to becoming more withdrawn and developing nervous ticks. His parents decided to take him to a child psychologist who suggested that he should go to an all-boys one until Evan finished high school.

Evan never did well in school but his parents always believed in his potential. In his final year in high school, Evan was assigned Mrs. Farr as his teacher mentor. He met Mrs. Farr every week who also helped him believe in himself. Evan’s academic results went from B’s and C’s to A+ in every class that makes him qualified for a full scholarship to the university of my choice.

At the age of 19, Evan makes the biggest decision of his life that he almost regrets. Evan thought he had his future all figured out, to study economics and became an investment banker. But when he got to university, Evan got the opportunity to join two entrepreneurs who had started a software company and offered him a 30% stake in the business. 

Evan struggled a lot with the decision, but he doesn’t want to live with regrets and decide to work full time on the business. Evan works all day but he noticed that nothing seemed to be working. He called his business partner and told them he quit. 

The next morning he realized that he must not quit as he hadn’t given everything that he had. So he came up with the question “Who has built a successful software company before?” the first person that came to his mind was Bill Gates from Microsoft. Evan studied how Bill Gates built Microsoft and applied it to his business and closed his first deal for $13,500 which looks like a lot of money for him.

At the age of 22, Evan lost a $40 million deal. As his company started to do well, Evan worked on a new plan to have a bigger company buy theirs. After perfecting the plan they went to the number one player in the industry and they said ‘No’. They started reaching out to the smaller competitors that will buy their company. But the smaller competitors did not choose them as well since they are already talking to other software companies like them for over three months. Eventually, his company was acquired with another business.

After his company was sold, Evan did a bunch of speaking gigs around the world. He also started a software company but did not succeed. Evan started to create his popular website off of his name with 100,000 pages of content. In 2009, Evan started a youtube channel. For the first five years of his channel, he only got 7,000 subscribers until he met Steve who is now his business manager. And for the next five years, his channel went from 7,000 to 2 million subscribers.

Below are some of Evan Carmichael’s quotes that will inspire all entrepreneurs and start-up businesses to reach their success.
