What’s your backstory?
Andrey Seas has always been a problem solver and strategist. He began his career as a tax consultant helping taxpayers and businesses through tax prep and tax planning. Later, he transitioned into tax resolution. He represented indebted taxpayers and even IRS agents themselves in front of the IRS. His strategies and effective advocacy resulted in millions saved for his clients collectively. At the same time, he was going to law school in the evening to eventually become a tax attorney.
He received honored recognition in Constitutional Law, Torts, Community Property, and Pretrial Practice for getting the top examination scores in his competitive class. He received his undergraduate degree at California State University, Northridge. Everything was going decently well until he got a call at his 9-5 job one day and found out his mother had just suffered a stroke. This led to Andrey quitting his job to take care of his mother and started his first business.
Since he was completely naive about what it took to run a successful business, this path eventually led him to experience depression and anxiety issues that put him in a dark place where he needed to re-evaluate his life and his path. Thanks to his faith and persistence, he eventually realized that he loved marketing and coaching and he abandoned his previous desire to become an attorney, even though he had already graduated from law school.
This led to an obsession to absorb as much information as possible and identify the most important factors that lead to real, sustainable, business growth, while also taking clients of a lot of industries and focusing on getting the big results. At the same time, he worked as a contractor for Clickfunnels, where he was able to help thousands of people with their online funnels.
Today, Andrey has built an independent digital marketing agency called Seas Media that focuses on strategy over tactics. Through paid advertising, sales funnels, email marketing, and consulting, he is able to create significant results for clients that have been burned by all the hype of other marketers who just focus on shiny objects and not timeless, fundamental marketing principles. He is a contributor to magazines such as Funnel Magazine and Chatbot Magazine and was named Emerging Leader of the Year by Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce for his commitment to his community and his expertise.
When Andrey is not obsessively focused on his client’s results, he is consulting internationally for 5 Star Hotels and other businesses. He has also shared his inspiring story on a TEDx talk and continues to grow and pursue the highest form of mastery in the marketing industry.
What techniques and methods do you use day to day to stay continuously motivated, focused and proactive when fear, hardships, and procrastination have the best of you?
The techniques and methods I use are:
- Journaling – It’s important to get out of your own head and write things down on paper. Check-in with yourself regularly about exactly where it is that you’re trying to go, how will you know when you finally get there, and any obstacles that are currently in your way. You then plan how to remove each of those individual obstacles and put the action items in your calendar.
- Network – You also have to talk things out with likeminded people who can be honest with you and speak life into you. Mindset is huge and a lot of us struggle with limiting beliefs, fears,
- imposter syndrome, and self-doubts that are all oftentimes illogical.
What is your definition of success?
The feeling of progress in important areas of your life that you’ve written down and pre-defined (as opposed to the areas that have been programmed in you by society, culture, family, etc.)
How will you continue to grow and succeed?
I will continue to grow and succeed by doing what I’ve been doing: reading, networking with amazing inspiring people, continuing to check in with myself regularly, and building a balanced life that prioritizes my health, family, and spirituality first and foremost.
