Raecine Tyes phonso dreher aka mr.zo the goat

MR. ZO THE GOAT


It comes down to, you know, just helping people understand financial literacy. Because its something that is not taught in a lot of schools; its not talked about in a lot of homes. crea ves. I was trying to think of who I could have to be on the cover. I had a few people I had in mind. And then I thought of you! I was like, “You know what, he will be perfect”. Because you are the ul mate entrepreneur, you are the goat. You named yourself the goat. So, let me ask you Zo, when you introduce yourself to people, what do you say? What is it that you say that you do? I tell them that I specialize in teaching financial literacy. And so when somebody says, “Well, what is your tle?” Because it looks like you do like mul ple things, like with the Airbnb as well. Well, I teach stocks, credit, real estate there, you know, and crypto to as well. I just specialize in the whole financial literacy world. You know, I'm a coach to a lot of people, online and offline. It comes down to, you know, just helping people understand financial literacy. Because it's something that's not taught in a lot of schools; it's not talked about in a lot of homes, you know? You said you have you have over 55 Airbnbs, is that correct? That's correct. And what how does that e in with everything else? Is that your side thing? Or is your wealth coaching your main thing? How do you view it? Yeah, so that's my main thing. Once I set it up, they pre y much run on their own. So I don't have to be there physically to take nobody in. As long as I have a cleaner, it runs on its own because you know, I have electric locks on all my units. How do you stay mo vated? My environment, honestly, running myself around a lot of posi ve things. Its how I stay mo vated. And I’ve always been humbled and always been grounded; never thinking like I made it already, you know. That's a perfect lead into my next ques on, because some people get to a certain level of success. And then that's it. They become selfish about their knowledge. What was it that made you start becoming so inspira onal to other people? Just knowing that there’s a lot of people that look like me, when it comes to where I come from, that don't

mr.zo the goat & his wife, mz.skittlez.


ecause a lot of mes, they don't know ke, I feel like a lot of people want to be essful, a lot of people want to be lthy, a lot of people want to take care mom want to take care of their parents t to reach that level of success. But don't have the knowledge and the rma on. And I always told myself, like, m the only one from the projects, or m the hood, or my hood that made it, I y didn't make it I really, really didn’t do hood where I came from, any any ce. You know, I didn't, I didn't serve m correctly, which was coming back and ing sure that anybody else who needed ortuni es that they have it too, as well.

you from Georgia? actually from Columbia, South Carolina.

w long have you been in Georgia? been in Georgia for about 7 years now.

what do you love about Georgia? And t do you wish was different? Georgia a lot. I like Georgia, because a f minori es support each other. It's not ed at as awkward for minori es to have siness or to be successful, or to be g a certain type of lifestyle. That's what lly do like. What I don't like is, they e crazy here. And you have to watch out hese crazy drivers for the most part.

's true. I agree with you on that one. me ask you Zo.. When you grow up friends and family, and then someone omes successful, and hits different everyone. So, how did they feel ut your success? hey actually are inspired! They’re nitely are inspired about my success. ’s how I’d explain it, for sure.

at is one excuse that you hear from ple, who you coach, as to why they 't invest in themselves? What is one use you hear from people as to why won’t take chances on themselves? t of people are they say that they are afraid. So they ques on themselves “Will it work?” I think fear is a lot of ple’s setback to to real success or ing to the next level.
