Meet Pete Asmus
The Early Years
At 16 years old Pete found himself in an unfortunate situation which caused him to live in a group home. With nothing but a deep-down drive to prove his worth and with no support at the time, Pete knew he had to make something of himself, so he joined the Navy at age 18.
During his Navy stint, Pete became a disciplined go-getter. The foundation of a structured environment, along with his internal motivation to be successful, allowed him to launch into his twenties with an open mind and heart. Pete knew he had what it took to not only succeed in life but also help others along the way.
He understood what it meant to “feel all alone” and wanted to create a solution for other kids who grew up in the system with no resources or family to lean on.
Pete explored a variety of avenues including electronics, going to community college and even starting a sketch comedy group. But none offered him the chance to reach his dream or achieve his goal of helping others succeed.
Pete knew he had to make a change. He knew he was destined for something more.
Pete’s journey led him to sales, which eventually landed him in real estate and then investing and teaching others about it. He was fortunate to travel the country with his mentors and he absorbed as much as he could about the industry. It was during this time he recognized two things that kept coming up, investors needed to make money now and in the long term.
That’s when Pete had an “aha!” moment, he thought how do we solve that? How do we solve that problem? And the idea of GreenZone360 was born.
“After growing up in the system and living in a group home, I wanted to create a platform that anyone, INCLUDING the person ‘I’ was at 18, could invest in to create a better, stronger and healthier future.” ~ Pete Asmus
