Mario Nawfal Reveals Little Known Growth Hacks That Will Make A Big Difference In Your Business

Read more

Most people create the product they have in mind and then try to build a brand around it, but not Mario Nawfal, the CEO of the Athena Group of Companies. What has led to Mario’s success is his business philosophy of first testing a range of products to see which ones do well, and then to begin building out a brand around a product that is already on the consumer radar and trending. For him, it is all about leveraging the momentum of a popular product or service and getting your timing right. Just take 2020 as an example. Those who have become millionaires by selling PPE and hand sanitizers would have been nowhere the year before. In this episode, Mario talks about his group of e-commerce and agency companies, sharing how the avant-garde growth hack strategies developed by the latter are used to boost the business of the former. And while service-based businesses such as agencies are not easily scalable, Mario shares how they are still getting great value out of these organizations and using them to benefit the group at large. Our guest talks about the lessons he learned from Froothie, one of his early companies, regarding the importance of creating a community, and shares about his collaboration with growth hack specialists Jared Codling and Kyrill Krystallis. Tuning in, listeners will also hear Mario’s views on starting a company from scratch versus acquiring an existing one, and much more!

Scaling Your Business Successfully and Ethically – Mario Nawfal

Scaling Your Business Successfully and Ethically – Mario Nawfal pt 1

Many of our listeners have their own businesses, are starting their own businesses and are possibly trying to scale their businesses. But often, it is road that is filled with potholes, pitfalls, and dangers that you do not even know exist. It is situations like these that will test your Faith. It will test your willingness to continue. They will test your resolve.

My guest today specializes in helping you to succeed through strategic partnerships. Mario Nawfal started off selling blenders door to door with only $300 in his bank account. Today, runs several multi-million dollar companies in a wide variety of industries including e-commerce, consulting and also in the block chain industry.

Mario Nawfal is the founder of the Athena Group of Companies, a business conglomerate that operates in more than 40 countries. He is here today to tell us about how he can help you to succeed, grow and take your business to the next level.

Help me welcome to the program, Mario Nawfal. Mario, thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to visit with us today. I do appreciate it.

Now, the first question I have for you is to tell us about how you got started down this path. I talked briefly about starting selling door to door. Tell us about those days and how you transitioned into starting what you are doing now.

How important is accountability in business?  There is a difference between accountability and responsibility, correct?

Not every country is the same. We have listeners all over the world. How can you help people in different cultures succeed in business designed for their culture and not necessarily in a western culture?

You talk about building systems and processes. How can someone design their business processes if they are just starting off?

Many businesses focus on growing their customer base.  But you help businesses to focus on their existing customer base. You call it a “customer-centric attitude.” Can you explain that to our listeners?

What about branding? That is a popular topic today. 

If someone wanted to get in touch with you, to ask a question, apply for your co-CEO offer or possibly to do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How should someone get in touch with you?

#188 Mario Nawfal – Blockchain & New Business Development

Read more
Mario Nawfal talks Blockchain
Just like Blockchain, Mario Nawfal is a fast paced and making a difference to our world. Mario has perfected a way to bootstrap new businesses. You are going to learn that this is not for everyone. For example, he lives an unconventional lifestyle. Arguably, this helps him stay focused.
Mario talks about his journey to getting into this exciting new technology and how he is bootstrapping new businesses at a hell of a pace.
What is Blockchain?
Mario is still a student of blockchain to this day. And if you are not a student, then you are going to miss out.

It essentially allows you to transfer value through the internet. At the moment, the internet allows you to transfer information. But, when you want to transfer money, you need third parties to verify that that money or value actually moved from one party to another.

Mario believes his life may be over by the time all this really kicks in. It is disruptive, but should take a long time to take hold. The technology decentralises and removes the need (potentially) for the third parties to be involved in the transfer of value. It removes the inefficiency.
How did Mario get into Blockchain?
He started his first business aged 21. Dropped out of university when he heard of a young 13 year old making lots of money. His early e-commerce high end kitchen company did remarkably well, becoming an 8 figure business in 2 years.

Then he came across Bitcoin.


Mario has since become a partner at a Blockchain law firm and founded a VC fund as well.

During all this, Mario was scammed by team members. In brief, he was in the Ecommerce space. Learnt about this new tech and found opportunities. His goal was and still is to leverage the potential of those opportunities. Long term. He is positioning himself as a leader in the space through his Blockchain Consultancy.
Be objective about Bitcoin. It has a place. You cannot scale like Mastercard or PayPal. However, it could be perceived as a store of value. For western world individuals, not that important right now. For Venezuelans, it is very important. Not controlled by a 3rd party. there, they have lost faith. Bitcoin is essentially maths. Code. No-ones position.

The best way to dip your toes is probably Libra, from Facebook. This is FB's attempt to bring crypto-currencies and blockchain to the masses. Be careful - read this article...libra facebook

The average person does not need to know the details of this technology.
Mario Implements QUICKLY

Mario quotes Jim Collins - throw a pebble. If the market reacts, he knows because they pay him. The idea is validated.

There is no better way for a market to tell you they are interested in your concept than with their money.
When You Launch - The Biggest Secret to New Business

Mario advises you to examine:

BARRIERS TO ENTRY - are they attainable?

Yes, to both. Mario will test the market. Take payments or get registrants.

Mario acts quickly. He is all in when the timing is right. SPEED is an incredible asset. Especially, as a start-up. He is extreme.

He is obsessed with work and latin dancing. The latter tempers his behaviour in the former. He scales really quickly. Scaling is an art-form. Have someone who disagrees or at least balances you out.
Be Mindful of Delusion
Don't forget FACTS. If you have the next big thing. For every Uber, there are hundred and thousands who have failed. As an entrepreneur, mitigate your risk.


Learn from people who have built 7,8, 9 figure businesses.
Latin Dancing
This helps him to relax. He is about ideas and strategies, not execution. He has a team to do that.
