Cryptocurrency is currently one of the most celebrated industries in the modern economy. Christian K. Martinez is among the modern entrepreneurs who have fiercely invested their time, efforts, and resources in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and other digital currencies. For the twenty-nine-year-old entrepreneur, digital trading allowed him to pursue his lifelong dream—taking his time on his own hands.
Beyond financial freedom, Christian dreamed of living according to his own terms. The entrepreneur has always immersed himself in a hustling lifestyle. Starting at sixteen, Christian took on several jobs on the side, such as working as a paperboy and flipping electronics. While in college, he was working as a part-time lifeguard. After earning his Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Christian landed a nine-to-five job, struggling to find satisfaction in corporate America.
Despite his success, Christian knew that there was more for him to achieve with his potential other than selling his time for money. In 2018, he took a leap of faith and ventured into becoming an entrepreneur, a move highly discouraged by most of his family members. Asked what drove him to keep going despite the criticisms, Christian proudly shared, “Having a sense of purpose in life starts by doing something you truly enjoy, and that is what I am committed to for myself and others.”
Today, Christian is basking in his success, as his sacrifices and hard work have paid off through entrepreneurship. Christain went out of his comfort zone to see greater things beyond the horizon. The entrepreneur shares various struggles he encountered along his path, including fear instigated by his environment. People are often held back from maximizing their potential not because of the lack of time or resources but because their minds have been shrouded by fear, especially if one is to take significant risks. Still, Christian proves that anything is possible.
“I feel like everyone always takes the safe and most comforting route instead of taking big risks. I didn’t want to live my whole life and wonder ‘What if?’” said Christian. With his experiences, knowledge, and expertise, the entrepreneur aims to inspire other aspiring individuals who feel stuck with the regular employee lifestyle. He wants to equip aspiring entrepreneurs through coaching. Christian loves the feeling of helping others change their lives and witnessing them grow.
Unlike other business coaches and online mentors, Christian uses a hands-on approach in his teaching. He doesn’t want to be seen as just another guru with vague business ideologies. Instead, Christian aims to provide a tangible blueprint that will lay out the foundations for them to achieve their goals.
“When I was going through tough and really challenging decisions, I really wish I had someone like me to kind of guide and push me through obstacles and setbacks,” said the entrepreneur. To sum up his intention, Christian wants to be someone’s pivotal point, or in his own words, “a coach that sets you up for success.”
The world is facing a new wave of modern entrepreneurs taking the reins in various economies. Christian is at the forefront, leading his generation and simultaneously paying his success forward by uplifting others along the process.
