John Zhang is the founder and CEO of WealthGap, an asset management firm that provides a one-stop-shop for all kinds of financial consultancy services. WealthGap assists individuals who want guidance to manage their financial portfolio and build wealth over time. John was recently featured in Entrepreneur’s 15 entrepreneurs to watch out for.
For most entrepreneurs, passion is an essential trait. Entrepreneurs are known for genuinely loving their work. They put in those extra hours to make their businesses succeed. John Zhang is an entrepreneur famous for his knowledge, skills, and drive to help his clients achieve staggering results. His pursuit of perfection and undying spirit have garnered him substantial recognition in the industry.
Steps to success
John Zhang wants to see what the view is like at the top of the business mountain. Now he wants to go further. He is a true-blue entrepreneur who believes that the “beauty of entrepreneurship does not lie in the number of times one fails. As long as you succeed once, you are set for life. To be an entrepreneur, you need to be willing to give up everything to work on your business and be prepared to fail.” John launched a real estate start-up called Luxari. It helps wealthy international college students in Manhattan rent, buy, and sell condos. Luxari was a stepping stone for WealthGap – a company that provides keen financial guidance and advice to individuals and helps manage their portfolios in the wealth creation process.
Key to success is decision-making power
As a personality, John Zhang knows that if something needs to be done, he should start it himself. To set the operations of WeathGap rolling, he found one start-up broker-dealer that was offering him API services for free. However, he had to wait since the API was still in the development stage. He was ready for the wait since it resulted in reducing his operational costs by a high margin. John sets the parameters of running his business and takes decisions based on his judgment and always follows his instincts.
Beyond just business
Also known for his humility, John aims to launch WealthGap not to become a popular name in the financial sector but to help regular people invest in the best financial products out there and grow their wealth. He wants people to invest their money strategically so that it grows manifold over time, and they can live the life that they dream of. “I am launching WealthGap because it is my dream to launch an asset management firm and make money for my clients,” says John.
John remains humble despite being widely successful as an entrepreneur. His exquisite work ethic and drive to help his clients succeed have helped him garner a reputation that speaks for itself. With a burning desire to strive even further, he is indeed a dynamic entrepreneur to watch out for.
