24-year-old CEO Datrice Mulsumo is everything aspiring entrepreneurs aim to be. Currently based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, residing in a luxury apartment, driving exotic cars, and making over a million in a year, Datrice portrays an image of success. He stays at the top of his game at such a young age. But the entrepreneur shared that he is merely at the beginning of his journey.
As wonderful as his premium lifestyle appears today, Datrice Mulsumo shared that his life growing up was not a walk in a park. Born in a small country in West Africa called Liberia, Datrice saw how hard life was in the 3rd most impoverished country in the world. In hopes of a better future for their family, his parents immigrated to the United States in the year 2000 in pursuit of the American dream. Four years later, Datrice followed and lived a substantial yet challenging life.
Even after getting opportunities that most people his age would not get in Liberia, life remained a rough hustle for Datrice Mulsumo and his family. “Just because I was in American and had more opportunities, it didn’t mean I was going to be successful and make a lot of money,” he said. Later on, lacking the motivation to finish college, Datrice dropped out and fell into depression. He felt that he was letting his parents down, so he moved to Minnesota at 19 to carve his own path.
“But I didn’t find better opportunities. I just found new challenges,” Datrice Mulsumo said. Homeless, broke, and reaching rock bottom, Datrice found his way home, realizing that the support of his family remained. It was with his mended confidence that Datrice entered sales for a fitness gym. As he recalled, he found passion and talent in the field. But even after receiving one award after another, Datrice realized that he wanted more room to grow. “The ceiling was low, and I was hitting it already. I needed more,” he said.
Venturing into broader horizons, Datrice Mulsumo became the CEO of Applied Knowledge Academy. The company is dedicated to helping entrepreneurs reach the six-figure to seven-figure marks and providing value to business owners and social media influencers.
