Before becoming a successful six-figure earner, entrepreneur, and co-founder of Dropship Tribe, Nestor Castro was in limbo.
He felt totally frustrated, figuring out what he was meant to do. After serving a 12-month combat deployment in the US Army, Nestor found his way back into civilian life. However, it was not a smooth return to normal life. It was met with joblessness, uncertainty, and self-doubt.
As a result of this, he went on with the familiar. He used his leadership skills and went to continue serving the community. But this time, as a police officer for over five years. But, Nestor did not lose his way and his desire to improve. He believed in the entrepreneurship and leadership skills within him that were left untapped. And that’s how little by little, his life and mentality changed. He didn’t want to hold back and decided to live on his own terms.
Apart from that, what gave him more perspective is the valuable lessons he learned from becoming a father. He shared that teaching kids, by example, is important.
So when Nestor wanted to tell the world that success is something you make for yourself, in your own terms. He wanted to lead by example, just like he did with his daughter, Ava.
“How can I tell my daughter Ava to read a book, if I don’t read books. How can I explain to her healthy foods to eat and what not to, if I don’t do practice what preach? How can I tell her to follow her dreams if I am not following mine?” Nestor boldly asked.
For Nestor, it all stems from himself. He wants to teach her financial literacy, to create generational wealth and not live in a rat race. He wants to teach and mentor the youth and show that impossible is nothing. Nestor shared that his daughter followed him on his journey to running an NYC marathon, doing my Associates and bachelors while juggling work and fatherhood. “She is my accountability partner,” he said.
The same goes for the people he wants to touch, inspire, and empower. To lead someone or something means to be in front so that others can see and follow in that direction. So, he dove deep into the e-commerce world and changed his life completely. Through his guts, determination, and perseverance, he became a successful six-figure earner on the platform. He learned a lot throughout the entire process and figured out what worked and what didn’t. Nestor then created Dropship Tribe to give back and create something that other people can generate another stream of income so, they too, can live on their own terms.
Nestor is living proof that anybody can be successful no matter where they come from as long as they work hard and have the right mindset. More than anything else, Nestor showed us that being successful is nothing unless you lift everybody else with you, and together, you succeed.
