During our teenage years, a time of uncertainty in life, most of us are just beginning to figure “it” out. For some, even this may be a generous overstatement. Juris Bruvers (17), however, seemingly has it down. This young influencer with a knack for branding has taken the marketing world by storm, using his expertise and tech-savvy nature to help launch a number of businesses into multi-million dollar enterprises.
With his eyes focused at the top, Bruvers began his journey at the age of 14 as a streamer. What essentially started as a mere project for him quickly became a serious endeavor, as he almost immediately amassed a large following due to his unique style and cutting-edge commentary.
Over the next three years, he would go on to transform his online presence from that of a small-time streamer into that of an international businessman.
This era of covid has presented unique challenges to each of us. With the office closed, we’ve all undoubtedly promised ourselves that we would use this time for good-- maybe we would pick up a new skill, or finally write that screenplay. How many could say that they followed through, and that all this extra time resulted in productivity? Juris Bruvers has used this time to increase his
Instagram follower count over 2000% to a staggering number of almost 700,000, a feat accomplished by less than .27% of all users.
At a relatively young age, a massive audience like this is certainly a large amount of power to
wield; however, Bruvers has pledged to use his considerable platform to inspire others and uplift businesses in their early stages. This social media expert considers his network to be of the utmost importance, and says that maintaining strong interpersonal relationships is one of the best “skills” that entrepreneurs of all levels should keep not only in their personal lives, but when
working with one’s clients. “Your network really is your net worth,” he mused.
