Justin’s meteoric rise is due to his media buying genius, great blog and hard work, and his story shows that you really can turn your life around! He got his start 8 years ago with just $60 in an Adwords account and turned it into 6 figures. In 2011, he launched a digital ad agency, DMBIOnline, which quickly became a highly sought after 7-figure agency.
