Tai Lopez’ Bio & Early Life
Tai Lopez was born on 11th April 1977 in the United States of America. There’s not much information revealing about his parents. However, we do know that he spent most of his early life with his mother and grandmother.
Tai maintains a close relationship with his mother and 100-year-old grandmother and is sometimes seen featuring them in some of his social media posts. He considers them as a major source of inspiration behind his successful life.
Not much is known about his education, and the names of the institutions he went to are still largely unknown. According to his famous social media posts, it’s clear that he dropped out of college in his search for a whole better life.
One of Tai Lopez’ favorite quotes pertaining to education is; ‘it’s basically impossible to teach someone if they aren’t curious about the subject. This is where modern schooling goes wrong…’

Tai Lopez’ Career – from Rags to Riches
Lopez has always aimed for a successful entrepreneurial life since he was a kid. He was only aged 6 when he started selling tomatoes with his mom.
As he says, his mom had these cherry tomatoes that she sold, but no one was really interested in buying them. That was when he came up with the idea of selling lemonade with sugar instead. By the end of the day, he had managed to sell off the lemonade ten times more than he had with the tomatoes!
Even when motivating and selling to his fans, Lopez uses the metaphor of giving his fans lemonade – instead of tomatoes.
In his early years, Lopez adored his grandfather who was a scientist. He describes him as one of the smartest people he has ever met. When he contacted his grandpa with questions about leading a successful life, his grandpa made him understand that life was changing and becoming more modern and complicated.
To help him out, Lopez’ grandpa sent him some books which sparked his zeal for seeking knowledge.
It was after dropping out of college that he decided to read the books his grandpa had sent him. The books reportedly inspired him to strive for a better life and roused his curiosity about meeting the authors of the great books he had read.

Tai Lopez says, ‘I always knew whatever I ended up doing, it needed to involve traveling. I enjoy meeting new people, interesting people, smart people.’ He adds, ‘I like reading, and I wanted a life of adventure…’
So, with only $47 he had saved from doing odd jobs, Lopez moved into his mother’s mobile home in Clayton, North Carolina and thought of ways he could make money.
In his quest to search for a source of income, he came across a man named Mike. Mike had the biggest ad in the finance section of the yellow pages, and because Lopez wanted to know the secret behind his success, he offered to work with him for free. In return, Mike would teach and mentor him on the secrets of business and finance.
To his luck, Mike accepted the offer, and that was when he made his first step towards his debut career.
