#22: Jason Stone “The Millionaire Mentor” The Clever Investor Show Podcast

Joining us on The Clever Investor Show today is Jason Stone.

Jason Stone, known as The Millionaire Mentor, was one of the first people to utilize the potential of social media platforms. He currently has 6 Million followers on Instagram and posts regularly to keep these followers engaged. He became an Instagram influencer before it was difficult to become one, and well before people had realized the potential of this platform.

He is an affiliate marketer and serial entrepreneur who started building his following in 2014 and he has been soaring ever since. At one point, he managed to earn $7 million in sales in just 18 months. That is incredible for a business that doesn’t sell its own product.

In today’s episode, Cody and Jason discuss building a personal brand on Instagram, including how they grew their accounts and made money by charging for shoutouts. They also mention the importance of avoiding third-party apps that harm your account and the problems with sub giveaways. They discuss current Instagram trends and offer various hacks to increase visibility and engagement. The duo also talks about the shortage of affordable housing and advises young entrepreneurs to learn a skill, test and try different things, and build a personal brand. Jason gives advice to his 13-year-old self, including practicing self-care, thinking big, and focusing on personal development. They also discuss the benefits of long-form content on platforms like podcasts and YouTube.
