There are financial education programs in the industry today that provide you most of the information you need but will keep the secret sauce to themselves. Austin Zelan wants to change that while making sure every individual will become financially literate and break into financial freedom.
Austin didn’t start as an entrepreneur. Before he founded Westgate Fund, he worked his way from working in real estate to consulting at Microsoft. But along the way, Austin knew he has always been an entrepreneur at heart. Because of that, he chose to study finance and began investing heavily. He knew that if he could master the process, he could teach others to become financially independent as well. Austin believes that teaching someone to make money is one thing, but teaching them how to break into true financial freedom is a whole new level. Austin explains that we are living in a generation where people need to be financially empowered and taught how to take charge of their finances, as well as impact those around them. Moreover, Austin knew that the customer is the most critical part of the business, and he wanted to change more lives. So with grit, guts, and his passion for making a difference in other people’s lives, he began to coach and mentor people who needed him.
He started by focusing on himself and learning everything about the process. As soon as he became consistently profitable in his investing strategies, he began perfecting them and sharing them with others. It started with only a few people, and today, Austin currently has a mentorship available for anyone who wants to take their finances to the next level and finally break out of the 9-5 routine.
For Austin, people are not meant to live their whole life locked up to a 9-5. “Sure, owning a business and investing is not for everyone,” he said. “But there are millions of people out there who are eager to receive business mentorship and advice.” And Austin is working hard to do exactly that.
As a coach and a mentor, Austin is focusing on helping people become high earners and, in turn, high net worth individuals. He believes anything is possible with today’s technology. “If you want to make six figures in a year, you can. If you want to do that in a day, you can – anything is possible,” he said. Austin helps people break past their mental limitations and develop a successful mindset. You don’t develop a successful mindset from wealth and success, but rather the other way around. At Westgate Fund, Austin and his team put the customer at the center of everything. Their goal is to help each individual better their lives through their education and training. Many of their clients have become significantly more successful after they took the time to become financially literate through Austin’s program.
Indeed, Austin is changing the rules of the financial industry. He is not only providing them with the information they need to achieve their financial goals, but he also goes the extra mile to make sure each client can truly see a difference and is able to impact their community in a positive way.
