Tai Lopez was born on the 11th of April, 1977. His place of birth is Long Beach California.
His father was in prison throughout his childhood, and so he was raised up by his mother and grandmother.
He started showing early signs as a businessman when he was six years old. He used to help his mother sell her cherry tomatoes for 25 cents a bag.
At this time, Lopez started honing his entrepreneurial skill and by learning that basic demand and supply.
After noting that most people don’t buy tomatoes, he tried selling lemonade with sugar instead of tomatoes.
He then realized that lemonade brings in more money than tomatoes because he could sell $2.50 worth of lemonade at the same time and effort he expended to sell a bag of tomatoes for just 25 cents.
Tai was interested in making a good life for himself instead of indulging in the gangsta lifestyles that were predominant in his growing up days.
He resorted to learning more about making it in life instead of making friends.
He read Aristotle’s “Nichomachean Ethics”.
By this time, he considered his grandfather (who was a scientist) as one of the most successful people around and sought his help to succeed in life.
However, he did not get the kind of response that would encourage him. Instead, his father replied with a message:
“Tai, the modern world is too complicated. You’ll never find all the answers from just one person. If you’re lucky, you’ll find a handful of people throughout your life who will point the way.”
Nevertheless, his grandfather later sent him a box with eleven books that would assist him in learning how to succeed in life.
Tai heeded to the advice of his grandfather and started taking steps by developing and reading books, and to find mentors that will help him achieve his goal of a good life that means balancing the four major pillars of life – health, wealth, love, and happiness.
He poured himself into reading many autobiographies, business and self-help books. Among the authors he read were Charlie Munger, Darwin, Confucius, and Sam Walton.
He got inspiration to travel around the world to meet interesting and smart people, and to learn about cultures and human motivations.
To fund the travel, he has to do odd jobs and save money. Later on, he packed his bags and traveled to more than 50 countries in the world.
Some of the countries he traveled to include Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, and India. While in places like India, Lopez had to work in a leper colony for a time.
After he returned from his travels, Lopez has to spend two years living with Amish. There he learned their simple ways of life.
After spending two years learning from the Amish, Lopez returned to his mother in North Carolina.
By this time, there was no room for him, but he had to sleep on the couch. He was said to have only $47.
Tai Lopez is a school dropout. However, he learned what he knows today through the practice of reading books.
