Hi, I'm Ruben.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by people who turned their dreams into reality. Starting from my teens, I immersed myself in personal development information across a wide variety of subjects, including relationships, business, health, fitness and spirituality.
I always knew I wanted to do something that made a positive impact on many people's lives, but it took me a while to figure out what that "something" was. During that time, I ran an online drop shipping business, sold cars, created herbal supplements, and had a bunch of jobs that had nothing to do with what was important to me.
In 2012, I quit my day job and struck out on my own full-time. This was a life-altering decision for me and one that came with its share of hardships and challenges.
In 2014, as a way to keep me inspired during this difficult time, I started an Instagram page called ThinkGrowProsper. A year later, that account had amassed an audience of about 100,000 followers.
I soon found myself working with brands to help build their social media following and also doing some freelance graphic design work on the side.
With the help of my wife and business partner, Vanessa, we eventually turned what started as a simple Instagram account into a media company, educational platform, and lifestyle brand with a global audience of over 3 million people!
I'm truly grateful for where this journey has led me. I’ve had the freedom to travel across four countries in Europe while running my online business. I've worked with best-selling authors and been fortunate enough to connect with the very people who inspired me to pursue an online business in the first place.
I think of myself as a lifestyle philosopher and personal development educator. I'm no guru, just a passionately curious guy who enjoys helping others enrich their mind and improve their life.
ThinkGrowProsper is my way of connecting with and supporting insightful, creative and ambitious people just like you.
