Who is Rock Thomas?

What Qualifies Him to Speak About How to Rock Your Money and Your Life?

As founder of the M1 Mastermind, Rock has recently helped over 60 people attain millionaire status and helped many individuals become completely financially independent. 

Not only did he study alongside individuals like Tony Robbins, T. Harv Eker, Deepak Chopra, Caroline Myss, and more, he speaks from personal experience. Rock once worked 16-hour days for 20 years and had absolutely nothing to show for it. He was 30 years old with 30k of debt, living on his mother’s couch. He hit rock bottom, but that didn’t stop him from becoming a self-made millionaire. 

With the help of a supportive environment and mentorship, his confidence was renewed. He changed the way he saw himself, and beyond that, he learned how to invest in himself and create passive income streams so that he could live a financially abundant, fulfilling life – the life he dreamed of. 

Rock has impacted over 100 million lives with his viral Goalcast video on “How to Change the Way You See Yourself.” He is also a bestselling author and motivational speaker with over 30 years of experience in personal development and coaching. From humble beginnings on a small Canadian farm near Montréal, Rock Thomas overcame his tumultuous childhood to help others see the power of their identity, exit the rat race, and unleash their financial freedom.

Retire Early Through Real Estate with Kris Krohn

Wouldn’t you rather work because you WANT to? Not because you have to? 

In my mastermind, M1, I always teach my new students how to create financial freedom by using passive income vehicles so they no longer have to trade time for money.

I’ve said this to my students before, and I’ll say it a million times more, the #1 BEST way to create passive income is through Real Estate. 

Now you might be telling yourself that you know nothing about real estate and wouldn’t know where to begin. I’m here to tell you to find a mentor.

In this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life, Kris and I discuss why he decided to use real estate as his primary passive income vehicle, why most people won’t be successful, and why you need to be looking for a home to invest in, not a home to live in.

Key Takeaways

“When you understand the basics and have a grasp of them, becoming a millionaire in real estate is something that becomes a whole lot simpler.” – Kris Krohn

“Focus means, when things don’t go your way you focus on the right things. Here’s what most people do, they focus on the fact that they didn’t get what they wanted and they get hung up on that. Instead, successful people don’t focus on the failure, they focus on why it didn’t work. Every time I don’t get the result that I want I’m always asking, “Why?” Like, what was I missing?” – Kris Krohn

“Find the successful person in the room and learn from them.” – Kris Krohn

Change is the only way to get from where you’re at to where you want to go.”  – Kris Krohn

Trigger Warning: This episode contains references to sexual assault and abuse.

Everyone experiences hardship in life. Of course, it comes in different forms for all of us, but some of us become stronger, push past our trauma, and create success stories.

All of this adversity, however, triggered the entrepreneurial spirit in Clinton, and today, he is a Grammy Nominated, multi-platinum DJ, Producer, and Songwriter. 

He has written and produced hit songs for multi-platinum recording artists such as Lady

Gaga, Beyonce, Usher, Diddy, Pitbull, Ludacris, Big Sean, Akon, and Tyrese, has been nominated for a Grammy for his production work on Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. 

In this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life, you’ll find out how Clinton went from a criminal to making it big in the music industry, his secret to mental fortitude, and why talent without kindness means nothing. 

What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • Why ANYONE can make it if they want it bad enough

“When you’re young, you don’t understand consequences the way you do when you’re older and you don’t realize the effect you have on other people which is why bullying is so rampant because you don’t really know you’re destroying someone’s life.”  – Clinton Sparks

“A lot of people that have trauma feel like there’s this long road to recovery, there’s this long journey and they need to get on that. It’s not a long journey, it’s not a long road, it’s merely a decision.” – Clinton Sparks

“Once you decide that I’m going to be better, once you decide this won’t affect me anymore, once you decide that this is not how I’m going to conduct myself anymore, the whole fucking world changes” Clinton Sparks
