Who was your biggest influence growing up?
Richard Fong: My father. I admire his perseverance and dedication to our family. He journeyed to the U.S. from China when my mom was eight months pregnant with me. I didn’t speak to him until I landed in Kansas when I was eight years old. My parents struggled for years in the U.S., working at a restaurant during the day, learning English at night, and sleeping in the restaurant’s attic.

They eventually opened their own restaurant, where I started working as a dishwasher and busboy when I was 11. I watched my father work 13-hour days in the hot and humid kitchen. He taught me a lesson I would never forget: “I wasn’t the best chef in town, but I made sure all my food was freshly prepared daily. I worked harder than the competition and my customers could taste the difference.”

Share an interesting fact about yourself that not many people would know.
Richard Fong: I’ve been dancing salsa and bachata for almost 10 years. I’ve performed on stage with dance teams at salsa festivals in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

I met my wife through dancing, which has been a life-changing passion. We don’t go out to dance as much now that we have a son, but we do break out some bachata moves after dinner in the family room.

How did your business get started?
Richard Fong: I started working at a bank as a finance analyst right after college. It was a good job, and I got to travel all over the country. But I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur, so I learned internet marketing on the side and eventually made enough income as an affiliate marketer to quit my job.

After I helped a friend with his website SEO, they got more online business in three months than the whole year before. That’s when I realized that I enjoyed helping entrepreneurs succeed more than pushing traffic and conversions to faceless corporations as an affiliate. Now I am able to use my strength and do what I love by strategizing and helping build life-changing systems for entrepreneurs.

What’s your favorite quote?
Richard Fong: Bruce Lee once said, “‎The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.” That has been true in my life. When I focus and concentrate on…
