Hidden Gems: Meet Emmaus Ferdinand of Freedom University

Today we’d like to introduce you to Emmaus Ferdinand. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Emmaus Ferdinand is an entrepreneur with proven success who has become a mentor to thousands and he doesn’t take that responsibility lightly. His life’s mission is to inspire people through his leadership, his voice, and his actions, all powered by his faith in God. Born in Brooklyn, NY, and raised in an underprivileged area, Emmaus understands what it is like to lack some of life’s basic necessities.

His family is first-generation American and Emmaus grew up watching his mom work extremely hard to maintain their humble living conditions. Seeing how hard his mother worked created a burning desire in him to do something to change his family’s financial condition. Emmaus moved from New York to Maryland to go to college. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, Emmaus started his career in Asset Investment at a prestigious Fortune 500 company.

Though Emmaus looked like a public success with a “great career”, he found himself living check to check and having little time to enjoy life because his career was very demanding. At this point, Emmaus started his personal development journey and surrounded himself with mentors. After putting what he learned into action, life quickly began to change for the better.

Today Emmaus owns 4 successful businesses, travels the world, inspires thousands, and is an Author. He uses the life lessons that he’s learned in order to encourage individuals to overcome their circumstances, choose the right circle of mentors and reach their goals.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, finding the right mentors to guide me and my personal growth.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Freedom University?
Freedom University is a place where you can learn how to have financial freedom and time freedom! As a Freedom U graduate, you’ll have the tools to not only thrive in today’s economy but to make your own decisions. We exist to break the millennial’s curse.

What do we mean? Despite making up about a quarter of the population, millennials — defined as those born between 1981 and 1996 — own only 3% of the country’s wealth, according to the Federal Reserve. Our goal is to start changing this immediately and help as many millennials as possible. But it’s not only about financial freedom. To Freedom University, freedom may represent being able to live your life in any place you choose, anywhere in the world.

It means waking up and going to sleep whenever you want, spending valuable time with your family, and having a healthy bank account. At Freedom University you’ll learn how to create income that you don’t necessarily have to go into an office to generate, but rather have the freedom to do from home or on vacation. Hats off to Freedom!

What was your favorite childhood memory?
Playing outdoor sports with my friends. Growing up, I shared a studio apartment with my mother, dad, grandmother, aunt, siblings, and cousins since we didn’t have much.

So going outside was how we got to run around and enjoy some space! Don’t sound like much but for me, it meant the world.
