Ever since I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by success stories—accounts of people who turned their dreams into reality. Starting from my teens, I immersed myself in personal development information across a wide variety of subjects, including relationships, business, health, fitness and spirituality. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been exposed to (and been open to receiving) a great deal of information from a diverse array of sources throughout my life.
In 2008, after reading The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss, I started an online mannequin business and in 2012 I quit my day job and struck out on my own full-time. (You can find the longer version on my story here.)
I founded ThinkGrowProsper as a community for people looking for daily inspiration, entrepreneurship insights, and resources for designing the life you love.
Hi! I'm Ruben.
In the past 7 years I’ve worked in corporate America, sold cars, created herbal supplements, ran an online drop shipping business, worked with brands to build their social media following, freelanced as a graphic designer, and turned what started as an Instagram account into a media company. I’ve had the freedom to travel across 4 countries in Europe, while running my online businesses. I’ve worked with best selling authors and have connected with the very people who inspired me to pursue an online business in the first place.
I hope to continue to inspire and motivate people through this and other outlets for many years to come.
I'm a serial entrepreneur, curator, consultant, content creator, and lifestyle architect. I help people find inspiration, simplify their lives and do what they love to do. Eight years ago I started out selling mannequins online before I had even heard of social media and now I run a social media account with over 2.5 million followers(!). My job is to help you spark joy in your life and making what excites you work for you. ThinkGrowProsper is my way of connecting to and supporting insightful, creative and ambitious people just like you.
Want to know more about me, my life philosophy, and how I went from zero followers on social media to over two million? Start with my free foundational email mini-course, Mindset Shifts.
Cheers to your success,
