Resilience, tenacity, and determination are the hallmarks of successful entrepreneurs, and Christianna Hurt is one of them. Her journey as a successful e-commerce entrepreneur and influencer was rocked with so many challenges.
She was fired from multiple jobs. Hurt found herself in a precarious situation, which forced her to turn to affiliate marketing, which introduced her to the world of e-commerce, leading her to start the e-commerce academy WealthyCollegeKid, according to Bauce.
Hurt told the platform that she created WealthyCollegeKid because there was no one in the industry who looked like her or similar to her. What is more, she also felt that people were not trying to help others pay bills.
“I decided to start this because of the gap in the market. No one looked like me, no one was similar to me, and I felt like people weren’t trying to help people pay bills. At the end of the day, people just honestly want to make ends meet or get their feet back under them. So, I created exactly what I needed as a newbie online looking for a way to pay my rent,” she told Bauce.
WealthyCollegeKid is an academy school that teaches people how to make 6-7 figures monthly. The academy currently has over 50,000 students enrolled in digital courses and grossing $11 million, Bauce reported.
“WealthyCollegeKid is an e-commerce education platform in which I teach others how to sell online on various platforms with various products whether it is their own or another or from a major supplier,” she explained to Orlando Voyager.
Hurt is also a social media influencer and the face of the eight-figure brand, The Boss Palace doing $10.4 million in 2020. Her incredible journey saw her featured in Forbes Next 1000 class and endorsed by Forbes Under 30.
She is credited with revolutionizing the digital marketing space one step at a time. When asked if she envisaged being successful at a young age, she answered in the affirmative. “I knew I’d always make some type of large income, I just didn’t know in what way exactly. But I always pictured being able to go places and explore freely,” she said.
Aside from her e-commerce business, Hurt is also a travel influencer. She has visited 40 countries in 2 years. Running WealthyCollegeKid and being a travel influencer has not been smooth sailing for Hurt. Recalling her personal moments, she said had a miscarriage that resulted in a c-section, which changed her life forever.
“I needed to put my negativity and pain into something more positive so I created just kidding kids Streetwear for infants and toddlers it means the world to me and it’s my pride and joy honestly,” she said.
Despite other failed pregnancies and failed relationships that took a toll on her emotionally, the entrepreneur and travel influencer continues to remember “it’s nice to be important”, she told Orlando Voyager. Her advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is that they should find their lane and double down on it. “Don’t let social media make you try to invest or do a million different things,” she said.
