And before we dive into this interview with Michael Alvarez, I was pretty astonished by his experience His story, we’ll, we’ll share a little bit more about his his lawsuit with a billionaire with the richest man in the world at the time, his intro into the.com. He was right there near the beginning when websites started coming around. And so lots of neat things that we can learn. So without further ado, here is my interview with Michael Alvarez. Alright, everybody, this is Tyson Bradley, and I am here with Michael Alvarez, who is an entrepreneur at heart. And he has one of the just an amazing story that we want to be able to dive into and learn from, and just take his wisdom and apply it to ourselves in terms of our own business dreams and our own desires to get into the world of entrepreneurship. And so I’m going to let Michael Take, take a little bit of the floor and just tell us about I mean for you, Michael, when did you even first think to start a business? Like how did this even come about when you started thinking about it?
Michael Alvarez 01:43
Honestly, I think it’s been ingrained since I was a little kid. I remember, when I was probably six or seven years old. There was some workers next door, they were building the house next to us, I lived in Mexico, Mexico City. And I just walked right up to the foreman and I asked him if I could have a job. So he gave me a hammer and said, Go break that rock that this rock was huge. I wasn’t gonna even make a dent a year. But day after day, I’d come back and just keep hammering at it. And then one day I saw people line up to get paid. So I lined up, I was the last person in line and I and I get all the way to the friend, the guy says, What do you want? Well, I want to get paid for the work I did. So I made one peso. So that was and then I went bloedel on candy. But by really in the professional world, I feel that entrepreneurship was more. I believe, you know, I was, at one point, I was bullied by a billionaire. And I think that that kind of sets something off in me that I didn’t want to be bullied. And even though I was on my own, and it was in a court in Switzerland that he was there, him and his company, were putting this sort of lawsuit in Geneva against me saying that I was a bad faith actor, just kind of made me upset. And it made me want to just fight back even though I didn’t have anything. I was a poor college student. And $70,000 in debt later, I was able to win in this court case against his business. And he at the time, he was the richest man in the world named Carlos Slim. And I have nothing but admiration for for him and everything that he’s built. But I I wasn’t gonna just let what I believed was mine to be taken by somebody else. So then that really just gave me the belief that I could go up against Goliath. And it was okay. And that I could win, you know. So that kind of led to lot of other things. And it was, it was just a really good experience to start off with.
Tyson Bradley 04:07
That’s awesome. So you were in college when that experience happened?
Michael Alvarez 04:12
Tyson Bradley 04:13
Tell me more about that. What was that? Like? What were you doing?
Michael Alvarez 04:16
Yeah, so I it was in the early.com days where the internet was brand new and my first job I answered a classified ad where somebody was looking for a website salesperson. Ben, everybody was looking for trying to get domain names or dot coms, because that was the that was the Bitcoin back then right? Getting a really good calm. So almost everything was taken by time I got in and I just started looking for Spanish ones. So I I looked up spat yellowpages.com in Spanish, and I got it. And I received a phone call from this gentleman’s organization saying how much do you want I didn’t want to sell it. I wanted to Big Huge build a huge empire. So I just said some crazy number like six or $7 million. So they kind of went away. And then they came back a couple years later, and they submitted a complaint to the world intellectual properties organization in Geneva. It’s a global trademark. I don’t even know what to call them. But the decisions that they make are affected trademarks and copyrights globally. So I, I asked a very wealthy uncle of mine, I said, Hey, what do I do? He’s like, Are you crazy? You’re going up against the richest man in the world that I would just like, give up right now. I said, I said, heck, no. I wasn’t gonna give up on it. And I and I knew that if I stuck with it, and in, there may be a chance that I won. I won the decision. There’s five judges, and I want the decision three to two. So that was super exciting. And you can look it up on online, you can type in yellow pages. Michael Alvarez, WIPO, and the decision comes right back up, right. Oh,
Tyson Bradley 06:07
yeah. So you know, it’s interesting, just hearing your experience as a kid. And then even this experience, and noticing how, within you just this idea of, I’m going to keep going, and I’m going to keep hitting this rock,
Michael Alvarez 06:25
Tyson Bradley 06:25
until it breaks. And then I earn money.
Michael Alvarez 06:29
Tyson Bradley 06:30
Now, I don’t know if there’s anything that that either you’ve experienced, or what created that for you this desire to just consistently and be persistent in pursuing something, because I think that that’s so vital in terms of entrepreneurship in general. But that skill,
Michael Alvarez 06:49
That is sure interesting that you say that I think that’s a strength. And that’s I don’t know, if it’s genetic, I don’t know, if it’s, you know, my parents worked, you know, through, you know, nine to five jobs their entire lives, and entrepreneurship was not anything that they’d ever really thought about, I don’t think my mom was owned her own business, but she still got paid for the hours. So it was, I don’t know where it comes from. Actually, I really don’t. And I think honestly, it just comes from God, because there was a period of time in my life where I was just super down, I had gone through a divorce, it was extreme, extreme, difficult, challenging times. And my gift for entrepreneurship left, it completely left me. I couldn’t think of an idea. I just couldn’t even articulate any, I couldn’t make anything work. And for a period of like four to five years, while my mind and spirit were healing, I literally could not even think of about it, even though and entrepreneurship is what I’m all about. It’s my passion in life.
Tyson Bradley 08:06
You know, that’s one of the big things that I am really passionate about communicating is that there is a reason why any given person might have the idea or want to start a business. Because I think that to pursue something that creates value for another human is a righteous desire. Like, I would consider that, hey, that’s from God, that’s something that they you should pay attention to. And it’s interesting, just to hear you say that there is a moment in your life where there was disconnect, and disconnect from God, that led to disconnect in business. I’m curious, you know, what do you think contributed to maybe the disconnect, and then what happened to help reconnect?
Michael Alvarez 09:01
Honestly, it wasn’t the disconnect from God, but it was a disconnect from just me, like I completely lost myself. My entire identity was based on the life that I’d already created. And when all of that was shattered, then I just completely just knocked me out. I think most everybody goes through that period of time in their lives, where they realize, oh, shoot, my vision of where I should be your what life has in store for me, is really not reality, or it hasn’t happened or something like that. For me, it was a really, really tough divorce. And I really was just worried for my kids and worried about them. I mean, that just consumed every single second of my being for you know, four to five years. So I I really don’t have a good answer for you on that.
Tyson Bradley 10:02
Yeah. So imagine that. I was like, how are you? I mean, did the divorce happened? And then all of a sudden, you just like feeling down and like questioning everything and, you know, questions like caring for the kids and whatnot, or what was that? Like?
Michael Alvarez 10:18
Honestly, I think all I could do to survive was just just try to clear my mind and just not think of anything. It was a super, super difficult time. And and I even tried to partner up with a friend of mine on this entrepreneurial venture called ship see. And but my mind was just, I just couldn’t do it. I just wasn’t able to do it. It was. And I don’t even know how to explain it. But I think really, my mind was just going through that healing process. And I just needed to give it time to be able to finally get back into the game of things.
Tyson Bradley 10:58
When did things start to shift?
Michael Alvarez 11:02
So this is a really interesting story, because I literally lost everything.
Tyson Bradley 11:07
Michael Alvarez 11:08
even though even though I had sort of one business that I had, I built in sold it for seven figures to Carlos Slim’s company. And then I had a second business where I launched, I was the I was the first to launch iPhone apps in 2008. So the first 200 apps that launched in the App Store. I had two of them. Now, one was yellow pages, and one was showtimes. So, you know, we had over 10 million downloads. We were the first in the game, we were the first to do geolocation apps. We did it through triangulation, because there’s no GPS in the phones. We were the first to do targeted advertising and all that stuff, by geolocation. First to do many things, probably even the first to get to 10 million downloads. But I apologize asked your question again,
Tyson Bradley 12:06
what led to the transition, because you were kind of in this slum? Yes, slump. And now and then all of a sudden, you know, what changed? What shifted to help things pick back up?
Michael Alvarez 12:15
Yeah, so literally, through the divorce, I literally just lost who I was, and lost my assets and lost everything. And I pretty much used a lot of that money that I had to survive, really, and to try to get through this tough period. But then I think really the only thing that helped. And this is, this is very, very, very humbling is that I because I didn’t have that gift for entrepreneurship anymore. I had to generate income, but it didn’t matter what job I applied for. I wouldn’t get it. Even if I was applying for it didn’t matter what it was CEO, VP, Director manager, it really didn’t matter. And I think it was more because of the heartache that you could see through my eyes to my face. Nobody really wanted to be around me, they would interview me and I don’t think they even they like, Man, this guy is there’s some wrong with this guy or something. I literally took a $15 an hour job after having, you know, sold a seven figure business. And after having built a you know, as a 2 million, we had a $2 million a year run rate and the mobile apps. It’s a long story, how I lost everything, but took a $15 an hour job. And literally just that, in itself, allowed my mind to start processing allowed me to start making connections again, then allowed me to get back into the game. And then one thing led to another led to another and I finally am back to where to my natural self, which is now I also own part of a company that’s a software company again. And I feel that owning operating and building software companies that’s that’s my gift and also mentoring entrepreneurs. those are those are my two passions, and I’m finally back in the game. So it’s, I think that may answer.
Tyson Bradley 14:25
You know, if you were to take me to, you know that moment to where you were taking this job. You know, $15 an hour is like, what was going on if you were to like, here’s the video camera of of Michael’s life, here’s where it was, here’s what was happening. What, what did that look like?
Michael Alvarez 14:48
It was extremely difficult. I mean, emotionally I was a mess. I was difficult also because the person who gave me the job. He and I were both mentors, and the Center for Entrepreneurship at BYU, and he knew my background and he knew my talent and potential. I couldn’t figure out why he thought that I was, you know, poor so little. But it didn’t matter to me. And I wanted to prove to him that I could make his business a success. And I wanted to get back into the game no matter what it took, because I couldn’t think of another entrepreneurial idea. I couldn’t put things together. That just kind of forced me into getting back into the game and getting getting things going back again.
Tyson Bradley 15:34
Yeah. You know, if you were to like, how long ago was that?
Michael Alvarez 15:40
That was, had to have been like five years ago.
Tyson Bradley 15:44
Okay. Okay. So let’s say that you were, you know, here you are now, with more wisdom, you’re five years wiser. And if you could go back to yourself at the beginning of the dip? What would you? What would you tell yourself?
Michael Alvarez 16:01
Honestly, I would say, trust me that time heals all wounds. Just trust. At that point, I had no hope I did, I couldn’t even see the light at the end of the tunnel. It was impossible. But honestly, just one thing, to be patient and that Time will heal everything. But also, I you know, I also experienced an incredible, incredible miracle in my life, that I’d never experienced the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Before, the way that I did, I think as LDS or as members of the Church of Jesus Christ, we are really good at using the atonement to repent, I did something wrong, they it’s, we have a down, right, we have this whole system down. But there was something that I could not forgive. And there’s some people that I could not forgive, and it was just eating me up. And as a Christian, I knew that I had to forgive. It was kind of like you have to forgive or you can move on and you can’t be a good Christian, if you don’t forgive. I just couldn’t do it. It was impossible, that just that one thing was just killing me. And it wasn’t until one morning that I woke up. And through God’s grace, I just feel that that pain was lifted and taken off of me, I remember that. I remember the exact feeling I remember the morning, I remember getting up out of my bed and feeling that pain lifted. And I and the way that I feel that it was through the Atonement of Christ, that He actually said, you know, well, you’ve suffered enough, you just, you just don’t get it. I’m just gonna, let me just give you a, you know, get out of jail free card here. And, and let me just take it for you. And that’s the way that I felt it was kind of like experiencing the atonement and a 3d way that I’d never experienced it before in the past. And I think that was literally the first step towards being able to heal, and forgive and to be able to move on with my life and to get my gift back to entrepreneurship.
Tyson Bradley 18:20
Yeah, cuz how soon after that experience, did you get the job or get back into, I guess, the game?
Michael Alvarez 18:27
It was somewhere within the next six months,
Tyson Bradley 18:30
you know, that, to me, I’m just like, Oh, wow. Like, I just have this, this belief that when we connect more with Christ, and connect more with what we are passionate in, and really love, and I do think that that is an element of the Spirit trying to help us in, you know, creating something valuable, you know, in creating value to the world in doing something to connect with other people. So to hear your experience and to know that, you know, there was this barrier here of an unwillingness to forgive. And once that was lifted, you know, almost this, this new sense of of purpose, or at least a new a new sense of being and just being able to move forward.
Michael Alvarez 19:20
Tyson Bradley 19:21
Anything else that you’d say on that experience? Or, you know, how long did you stay at the job before you went back into creating your own business?
Michael Alvarez 19:31
So I think from there, I jumped over to two additional jobs. And then from there, just went off on my own again, I needed some time to get back into the game and the end. But I did some great work for mo Zenda. I did some cryptocurrency stuff before that. And then in Musonda software company, they had to There are two best years when I was there. And that just kind of helped me get back into things. And I absolutely love what I do today, I do consulting for a couple of companies, and I own a couple of other companies. But I wake up every single morning, just super happy, doing whatever I want to do. Because I know that I’ve chosen what I want to do. And every single morning, every single minute of every day, what I’m doing, I just love every bit of it.
Tyson Bradley 20:33
That’s awesome, you know, and being where you are now. I mean, when you consult with companies, what do you say that is kind of the primary thing that you’re trying to help them with?
Michael Alvarez 20:44
I think I’m really good at looking at ecommerce companies and saying, saying the opposite of what everybody else is saying. Everybody else says, oh, give me $100,000. And I’ll make you a hero, you know? And for me, for me, it’s you know, Guy Kawasaki. Yeah, you work for Apple. He said something really interesting. He said that people think that everything I touch turns to gold. He says that’s not true. He says everything I touch is gold. And so I only choose to work for companies that I know have a good potential, that I know that through my expertise, and marketing, and advertising, that if that goal is going to become 10 times more valuable, those are the only type of companies I consulted with, and what I say to them, I say, give me a couple hours a day. Let me show you what I can do. And this last company that that I that I’m doing a consulting for I helped them to double cells. And now I’m going to help them to double cells again. And I think that, and really, I think I’m really good at figuring out what what are the low hanging fruits that are immediate, you’re like these are, this is where you can generate really quick revenue, let’s do this. And then you really need a logo and branding and stuff. But let’s wait, what let’s wait till later, do you have enough money to pay for that? Then let’s pay for that branding and let them let’s just take you to the next level stuff like that. So but I really do love, you know, being somebody who people ask for my advice, and how to help take them to the next level?
Tyson Bradley 22:32
Yeah, okay. So let’s just imagine, you know, here’s, here’s the guy he’s in, in the corporate world, it’s like, he maybe has the two jobs that you had, but he knows I want to create something and I want to do it online, I want to create a business. Now, what would you What would you tell them?
Michael Alvarez 22:51
So the first thing is, is that number one is don’t drink all the kool aid that you’re told, and all these success magazines, and entrepreneur magazines and stuff, because what they do is they take the 1% of the successes, and blow them up to make you feel like everybody should burn all their ships behind them, and just go for and risk everything, and you’re going to be a huge success. Yeah, very few people are successful that way. Maybe 1% of entrepreneurs that just burn all their ships and, and risk everything and but really the wisest way to become an entrepreneur is maybe in your existing job, you figure out what it is that at that business they’re lacking, or a service or a product that they’re not providing their customers, there’s always going to be one. And then what you do is you figure out a way to create that product or service. And then you approach the executives of the company and say, Hey, by the way, I’m starting to moonlight and do some stuff on the side. And I’d like to create this product or service that would help your customers will you send me leads, if I can provide this because this is going to help them, this is going to help your product become better. And they’re going to be with a trusted person like me to provide this other thing that they need to make your product the better. You know, something better for them. If you can find that kind of niche inside of an existing company that you’re working with, and they start generating leads for you. And you start moonlighting and servicing these leads. That is probably the best way to get out of a job in a way that’s a win win for both your employer and for yourself.
Tyson Bradley 24:40
I love that. Yeah. Yeah, no, you know, in my mind, it’s just one of the companion products or services that I could offer that, you know, pair up with whatever on business I’m already in. I know of. I spoke with a fellow who he did like pest control. Something like that, and summer sales. And, you know, he was he was looking at developing, you know, an app that would, you know, record your sales calls and, and that they could extract data from those calls, what’s the most effective and, and just just these ideas in which you can create, and then just being able to take the next step in pursuing that idea. I think a lot of times we get scared, or we don’t think that we have the capital or whatever, have the clients that would come into us. But I mean, when it’s part of your business already, there’s always there’s like, an already made pipeline ready and available to you.
Michael Alvarez 25:40
Exactly. If you can capitalize on an existing pipeline, and you have support for it. That is the best way to exit a company as an employee and become your own employer.
Tyson Bradley 25:53
Yeah, you know, and something else that I that I’ve heard plenty about is, you know, people that will be in a company or a corporation, and then they might leave, and they’ll do consulting for the same company, but their rates are like, you know, much higher, and now they’re getting paid double, you know, just because they left another consulting doing pretty much their same job.
Michael Alvarez 26:13
Tyson Bradley 26:14
Michael Alvarez 26:15
I have a friend who’s doing that just unhappy. He does that.
Tyson Bradley 26:21
Yeah. No, so I think, I think it’s one just recognizing, you know, the opportunities that are out there and available to people. And, you know, I think for, for this audience, you know, there’s probably many of you that already have an idea. You know, and in terms of taking the next step and moving forward, is there anything that you would, you know, advise, it sounds like you’ve been on advisory boards for entrepreneurs, but, you know, what other things do you do? You mentioned skills that you share that that are helpful for?
Michael Alvarez 26:56
You, I think there’s, there’s a, there’s a huge push in entrepreneurship to do what you’re passionate about. Yeah. And I think it’s a good thing, if you can find it, a lot of times, you realize that your passion is just business. Like, for me, my passion is just business. I started a company called rugby nation, because I’m passionate about rugby. And really have probably spend more money on on this business than than I’ve ever earned. That’s just because it’s a passion. That’s why I run it really poorly. Because it’s a passion, but it will, it will, it will do something someday. But I think that really, not everybody does an entrepreneurship, what they’re passionate about, that really could just be and this is something I’ve struggled for a long time, because I keep hearing all these, supposedly, you know, these gurus do what you’re passionate about stuff. And really, what I found is that my passion is just business, seeing something grow is my passion. That’s may sound kind of weird, I don’t know.
Tyson Bradley 28:05
I actually think that a lot of people might resonate with that. Because I think that generally, like everybody wants to, like contribute. Something wants to pursue something that’s beyond them greater than them, and that they want to not only grow themselves, but help other people to grow. Like I remember studying this, that, you know, Moses 139. It’s like this My work my glory to bring to pass eternal life and immortality, eternal life, a man like that is the most quoted scripture of all time. Go back to Joseph Smith, just like everything. It’s like he’s the most quoted scripture ever. And there’s a reason for that. Because it’s God’s purpose. For us, He wants us to grow. That’s his whole goal. And so, to me, being able to help other people much like you that there’s this thing inside you just like I just want to help other entrepreneurs, I want to help businesses and just want to help them grow. And if that’s your only desire, by all means, just find a need out there. And help someone grow help someone, help someone create more money, help someone create a better relationships help someone with their health like these these areas of people want,
Michael Alvarez 29:31
right. I agree. You know, there’s trying to find if I could find the scripture on the parable of the talents in the Bible.
Tyson Bradley 29:42
Oh, yeah. I love that parable. I love how its talents because even though talents is like money, we can’t help but think of talents as in our own God given talents and abilities.
Michael Alvarez 29:55
It’s fine when I’m trying to find the actual scripture. Because it has a has a clue about entrepreneurship in there that I didn’t really notice until, until the last few years. Okay, so it’s Matthew 2524. And then it says, Then, which we had he had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou are the hard man, reaping where thou has not sown, and gathering without has not strawed. So the way that I look at entrepreneurship is literally, what makes us different from animals is our imagination. And from our own imagination, you you literally, you can literally figure out how to reap where you haven’t sown in gathered, where there has not assumed. So that makes sense. I think it only makes sense to entrepreneurs.
Tyson Bradley 30:56
Yeah, no. So it’s like creating something
Michael Alvarez 30:59
magic in there.
Tyson Bradley 31:00
Michael Alvarez 31:01
Tyson Bradley 31:02
creating something from nothing.
Michael Alvarez 31:04
creating something from nothing. Absolutely.
Tyson Bradley 31:06
Yeah. No, I love that. And I think it reminds me of just the creation in general. And knowing that it’s like here is matter, like, unorganized, all this stuff. And all things were spiritually created before physically created,
Michael Alvarez 31:27
Tyson Bradley 31:28
And just knowing that, oh, it’s like, we have these imaginations, we can just create these ideas in our mind. And then it’s just a matter of execution, and making it a reality and putting it out there in the world. And so, I love I love that reward that has not sown, just like how does how do you generate money without anything sound? How’s that possible?
Michael Alvarez 31:52
Tyson Bradley 31:53
Love that. Awesome! Well, I think one thing that, as we kind of wrap up here that I want to kind of ask you about is how would you say that entre entrepreneurship, and your journey? How is entrepreneurship to help you develop a closer relationship with Christ?
Michael Alvarez 32:17
Before that, let me let me cover one other. Yes. Oh, yeah. You sent me an email today. She said you could give some advice to your younger self, what would what would it be? And I think we covered it a little bit, but couple more things. So number one is momentum is everything. I owned a business called I own a business called emergency preparedness calm. And I in 1999, I stayed up sleepless hours, just building a shopping cart connecting the gateway and doing all this stuff. And I’d work till three in the morning, and then I wake up at 10 in the morning, and then we work till three and forget to eat and I was just, and then I made my first sell e commerce I was just jumping up and down and dancing around the house because it was just super exciting. And I was selling one year full food storage. to people who are worried about y2k about the year and the world ending and then the year 2000. But it had momentum. And the year 2000 came away. And in my mind, I said, Well, you know what? I knew the world wasn’t gonna disappear. But and I made all this money from the food storage that I sold. Somebody made me an offer for the domain name, so I just let it go. So I sold it. If I would have kept that momentum growing. Can you imagine where that would be today?
Tyson Bradley 33:47
Michael Alvarez 33:48
Tyson Bradley 33:49
Michael Alvarez 33:50
momentum, And I’ve had so many businesses that I have let go, because I didn’t understand that the momentum factor has everything. I’m so addicted to the grind that that once something has momentum, I kind of lose interest or kind of and I have to force myself to keep going. The other thing is, when you have an idea, test it with $100. And with $100 100 sales pitches to your target audience. Yeah. Don’t go above that. And just call people asked him if I had this product. Would you buy it for how much right? Try not to spend more than $100 to just test an idea. Some people put a million dollars into a business idea and all of a sudden it just flops right. Pray and the other thing is pray over your business like yours like a farmer prays over their land. It’s it really is your business even though it may be a mobile app. Even though maybe you’re selling rugby balls, or whatever it is that you’re selling,
Tyson Bradley 35:05
Michael Alvarez 35:06
pray over your business as if it was your farmer and it’s your land. Why? Because that’s the livelihood for your family. Yes, pray over your app that it gets a million downloads, and, and pray if every something that I truly believe is that every single prayer that I have had, or that I have said, with the righteous desire has come to pass. And it really is true miracles do follow me, I am the happiest that I’ve ever been, you know, right now in my life. And really, if you have a righteous desire for your business, and you’re not going to let let a million dollars go to your head and become somebody, go buck wild and crazy and become a become a different person. And then your your prayers will be answered. God wants to bless you with success, and it’s in Scripture everywhere where God wants to bless you with success. But so anyways, on to your final question. Would you mind rephrasing that?
Tyson Bradley 36:13
Yeah, how would you say that entrepreneurship has brought you closer to Christ.
Michael Alvarez 36:18
I think it’s been a given take between both worlds. I think entrepreneurship is taught me humility, and, and brought me to my knees A lot of times, so that I would rely on God and Christ. And then also, in the Gospel is taught me skills and taught me good character, to be able to translate that into business and entrepreneurship. And the other thing is, I think, as you’re going along your entrepreneurial ventures, you’ll start getting callings in the church that are specific to what you need to make even a better entrepreneur. If you’re doing what’s right, you’ll be called to those good callings. And when I, when I needed it the most, I was called as an elders quorum president, in a singles ward. And that’s really what helped me to get me back on track, to get my mind off of the things that I need to get off of. And it helped me to get back into entrepreneurship. So giving God what’s due to him will help you to become a more successful entrepreneur.
