Every Monday we profile one of our Members. This week in we are joined by Proprietor 241 Marek Zakurzewski.
The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and may not reflect those of The Athenaeum.
Who are you?
I am Marek Zakurzewski. I am entrepreneur, property investor and multiple business owner. I am also a father of 2 very young children.
My business journey started when I was 12, delivering newspapers and leaflets to help others around me so I could grow tremendously and become successful with the correct mindset and attitude. My first business was in construction industry and since I have created many other very successful businesses in various fields including Renovations and Maintenance, Property Development, Property Sourcing, Project Management and Waste Removal. I also have extensive background and experience in sales. I have helped many other small to medium businesses to grow into very successful and profitable entities. I have also built extensive investment property portfolio starting from small and quickly progressing to larger deals. I value personal development at a very high level together with mindset and attitude- “Believe that you can and you’re half way there”. I always set the bar high and push hard. I am adrenaline junkie qualified in Skydiving, Scuba Diving, Bungee Jumping and Motorcycling and I believe that “If you don’t take risks, you can’t create a future”. I value family time and devote every spare minute to my loving wife and two beautiful children. I am very passionate about helping others to succeed in business expansion, property journey and personal development. I am a wealth, business and property coach. I also run Investing Earning Living Podcast to share and educate as many people around the globe as I can. I am also bullion and precious metal expert and gem stone collector.
What is your greatest achievement?
I became a multimillionaire in my early 30’s with a portfolio of over 60 properties. I built my wealth at the same time as I supported my wife and family whilst she was fighting with cancer, in pregnancy and having a 1 year old at the same time and we successfully won the biggest battle of our lives.
Can you give one interesting fact about yourself?
My plan was to become a Royal Marine Commando while training MMA and Boxing at my younger age but then met my wife which completely changed my plan.
What brought you to the Athenaeum?
Reputation, business and history.
Is there anything you would change about the Athenaeum?
Collaborate more with other high end member clubs in order to become recognisable force in this ever changing society. This could be through establishing better partnership and event collaborations.
Do you have any Athenaeum memories or stories to share?
Dining in Athenaeum is a pleasure and always a privilege to invite friends and family.
What would you say to anyone considering joining the Club?
Stop considering and just join.
