Andreas Vezonik is an Austrian entrepreneur who co-founded many successful businesses in the past. Since 2015, he started to invest his savings into cryptocurrency and was one of the early investors in blockchain technology. His first business was a social media agency which he started in 2017. At the age of 21 he decided to leave his home country and moved to the sunny island Cyprus where he spent 3 years and built his entrepreneurial empire. Currently, he is focused on building his newly launched CBD company, iPlant Global - a swiss-based CBD retailer that offers projects for both consumers and affiliate partners. Through this venture and all of his business pursuits, he hopes to help men and women around the world to learn how to make money and ultimately gain freedom.
At age eighteen, Vezonik had already begun his entrepreneurial journey. After launching several smaller businesses, he settled on social media marketing. Running that successfully for several years, he saw a new opportunity. Cryptocurrency. “When crypto[currency] came around, I was impressed with the blockchain technology and decentralized infrastructure.” He thought this could be an opportunity of a lifetime - and he wasn’t wrong. Over the next few years, he invested heavily in crypto and even started a trading and fin-tech company that garnered over 10,000 users.
Several years later, he saw an opportunity to invest in another hot market- cannabis. When he saw the CBD market beginning, he saw a lot of parallels to crypto. “Crypto started in New York and spread throughout the US and then into other markets. Cannabis was the same.” As the US began to legalize it, other countries were legalizing it as well - an he thinks that Europe is next to fully legalize medical cannabis. So in the beginning for 2021, he turned all his attention to launching iPlant, an innovative company that allows everyday people to invest in the CBD industry by offering a fully transparent Cannabis-Sharing concept. Through iPlant every private individual has the ability to physically own his own CBD plant and participate in the harvested amount. Just six months since it’s launch, iPlant has become a multi-million dollar company and is currently the fastest growing legal cannabis company.
Looking back at his recent and continued success, Vezonik recalled that is not always easy. “Recently, I was actually hospitalized. My body shutdown from pushing to hard. Extreme burnout was the cause.” It was a result of being an overachiever. Since he started at eighteen, he has always poured everything into his businesses - sometimes too much. “I had to learn to delegate.” Now, however, he has taken time to reset and find more balance in life.
For anyone looking to start in the world of entrepreneurship, he has this bit of advice to offer. First, it is never too late to start. Yes, he started at eighteen, but he also knows those that started when they were older. Follow your heart and your passions and you will find purpose in life. Second, find ways to do things easier. Follow trends, find patterns, and business will be much easier.
