QUINCY’S EARLY DAYS
Quincy was always drawn to figuring out how any and all systems he was introduced worked on a fundamental level. He would then spend his free time thinking through how to reverse-engineer and optimize these systems. Once completed he would then invest his time in rebuilding these systems while doing his best to address and fix any faults or issues he discovered along the way. Much of his drive in thinking this way were complements of his time spent speaking with his electrical engineering father!
By seventeen, while attending college and studying pre med at University California Davis, Quincy discovered eBay and Amazon. This is where his business endeavors began to flourish. He started out as a reseller of everything you could think of, developing a deep knowledge of varying markets, industries and niches.
It was through this time that Quincy really developed his laser-beam focus on integrity and honesty in doing the job right the first time and overdelivering value to his customers and business associates.
While studying and playing soccer for the UC Davis Division I Men’s Soccer team, Quincy had demonstrated his elite soccer abilities and was drafted to the San Jose Earthquakes in 2009.
Over time, Quincy realized he wasn’t going to make the money he needed to from playing professional soccer to solve the problems he had set out to tackle; so he began to look for a new business venture to develop into something that could accomplish his bigger picture goals.
Come 2012 Quincy discovered and began investing in Bitcoin and officially launched Perfect Soccer with his teammate Ross LaBauex.
He went on to self teach; affiliate marketing, paid advertising, sales funnels, branding, accounting, social media, public speaking, player representation, team building, video editing, music production, contact negotiation, podcast creation, website creation, email marketing, manufacturing, project management, publishing, wealth management, VC, among many other skills sets necessary to build, grow and maintain a profitable business in this rapidly evolving digital landscape.
Eventually pulling all of that knowledge and experience into starting his marketing company OBI Marketing, Inc. and since then along with his wife, Sirena Amarikwa have launched a Culture Consulting & Representation Agency EVLV.Online And an institutional Web3 Research and Education platform EvolveNFTs.com
Quincy is more resolved now than ever to bring the mentality and systems he’s learned and developed over the last twenty-one + years and help those that want to help improve themselves.
Quincy’s focus is to utilize his attention as a pro soccer player to create opportunities to help others chase and catch their dreams.
