Season 2 Episode #1 Berel Solomon “It’s all about sharing the journey”
When Berel Solomon was 18 years old, he started a company called More To Life Entertainment. He would bring celebrities to nightclubs in Montreal. When he was 21 years old, he became more observant in his Jewish roots and decided the nightclub business was not the right place.
Working for his father in the family business of metal recycling, Berel helped grow the business using powerful online marketing tools from $7 Million in sales to $40 Million in 7 years.
When he was 28, Berel decided to use all the knowledge he gained from his business experiences to open his own company. At Wealthy Commercials, he uses cutting edge online video marketing to fill multi locational-based companies such as Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Communities, Rehabilitation Centers, Daycares and more.
He says it has been a wild ride, with tons of ups and downs, but through it all he has managed to grow the company from 1 to 20 people and $0 revenue to $2 million in just 25 months.
