Robert Syslo

Vick Tipnes

I was born in London, England and immigrated to Florida as a young boy with my Family.

I always knew that I wanted to be an Entrepreneur from a very young age. I remember asking my Father, whom was also an Entrepreneur, if I found a business would he invest in it, I was 12.

My older brother would give me his RayBan Aviator sunglasses when he was tired of them, and I would call the Tallahassee Tribune and place an ad to sell them. One day this grown man showed up at my door, my Dad answered and said he was here to see Vick. My dad would look at me funny, but I made 60 bucks that day!

Even though my parents pushed education, and my older brothers went to college, I always knew it was not my path. I was and still have a rebel streak in me. I did give it a try and kept an open mind, but after 6 months of college I decided to drop out and pursue my goals.

I wasn’t born with great salesmanship skills, so I knew I needed to learn it and learn it quickly, so I threw myself to the wolves and decided to go and sell cars. That was an amazing experience for me, you had to sink or swim. After learning the business I did really well and was salesman of the month and had my picture in the Tallahassee Tribune. That really helped build my confidence.

I then struggled through various businesses that I started and sold, but didn’t really reach my full potential, when compared to the image I had in my mind. So I struggled with things for a while. 

It wasn’t until I was 35 years old that I really woke up and realized that I needed to truly invest in myself if I was going to become anything in life. Once that ball dropped for me, everything changed. I took massive action to learn and educate myself as much as I could. 

I became obsessed with bettering myself, and invested every dollar I had in me. At the time I had little or no money, I didn’t even have a sofa, but I had belief in myself. Some people may think that’s crazy, but I knew if I made myself more able and had more knowledge, everyone around me would benefit.

Then in 2015, after I turned 39, I became a man on a mission.

I started Blackstone in 2012; my purpose was to help as many people as I could, through better cost, access and quality. I started this business from a 400 sq.ft office, with no revenue, one employee and a loan from an investor. 

As an Entrepreneur, you just accept the fact that some weeks you may not get paid because you have to take care of your employees first, so it was always a challenge. But I knew that all the hard work and sacrifice would pay off one day.

Today we are an Inc. 5000 company and have over 100 employees and are a multi-million dollar revenue company. We have grown into a national company that does business in all 50 states. We are contracted with over 17 million lives via various Insurance Providers and we provide a level of service Patients, Physicians and Insurance Providers that is unmatched.

Judge Graham

To the average eye, Judge Graham might seem like any other person from Houston, Texas. Growing up, Judge went to school and was always a young hustler. He was always making money from a young age, hustling pencils, watches, and beepers at school. After going through school, he decided to further his education at Texas Christian University.

While attending TCU, he played football. Graham was always a skilled football player throughout high school, but quickly realized he was a solid backup player in college. With that conclusion, he put down his football helmet and picked up his books. At the time, TCU was offering a new degree called E-Business, which consisted of core competencies in finance, marketing, and computer science, and he jumped on it. While still attending TCU, he started a website development company with his best friend. The company grew fast but eventually failed. The reason for the failure was simply one reason: there was no recurring revenue.

With the failure of his first company, he realized he needed to master recurring revenue to build an ultra-successful service-based business so that he did. The next company he went on to start was a digital marketing agency. With his digital marketing agency, he found recurring revenue. His second agency was a massive success, with hundreds of employees and working with massive companies. He eventually went on to sell it, though, for a whopping high 8 figures.

With his big exit, his mindset changed when he realized he wasn’t selling a service or product; he was selling revenue. Judge realized that if he could make businesses a massive return on the money they gave him, he’d always be in business. From that, he went on to help build another agency, building it the same way as his last, just moving faster. He helped grow a company with thousands of employees and blue-chip clients. He then helped sell that company for a massive 9-figure exit.

Today, Judge is focused on helping business owners. He is helping them through his various books, programs, social media, and speeches. Above all, Judge is a focused individual who scaled with speed and saw massive results from it.

He started his podcast in the middle of 2018 to inspire wholesalers and real estate agents to double their incomes by adding a 2nd leg to their business. The podcast has now grown to ten thousand followers with new members of the community sharing their success story every week. Steve also created the OfferFast Homes app. The purpose of the app is to help wholesalers jump start their career faster by putting all of the buyers in one place. The hope is to minimize the challenge of building a buyer list when getting started in wholesaling. Steve's legacy will be to create 100 Millionaires. One of his favorite quotes is from the great Zig Ziglar: "You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want." He heard this quote when he first got into real estate, and it has stuck with him throughout his entire career. In fact, it's essentially one of the core values Steve lives by. Since starting the Brokerage in 2013, Stunning Homes Realty has over 100 agents. In the greater Phoenix area, his company has almost 1% market share. 1 in every 145 homes is sold by Stunning Homes Realty.
