Sam Ovens Bio & Background

As per his YouTube channel, Sam Ovens’ business ventures started when he was 21.

At the time, he was studying Commerce at the University of Auckland. Ovens never received his Commerce degree since he would drop out of college to focus on his consulting business.

While attending college, Ovens landed a job at Vodafone, which became a family “success” story for him.


The formation of Ovens’ interest in entrepreneurship

Ovens has expounded at length on his entrepreneurial journey, most notably in Forbes and in his bio on

After an encounter with his girlfriend’s millionaire friend, Ovens became dissatisfied with his job. During his short stay at this friend’s beach house, Ovens noticed that he would try to keep himself away from all negativity. Additionally, Ovens noticed how differently the millionaire approached his day-to-day life.

The other thing that stood out to me was how differently a wealthy person approaches day to day life versus someone like me who was raised to be frugal. All the lights in six houses left on? No problem. Windows down with the air conditioning on? Why not?

Interested in how one could live such a life, Ovens found out that the friend was an entrepreneur and owned his own business.

At the time, I didn’t even know what an entrepreneur was, so I had to Google it. That’s really where my journey began. I’d never ever considered that there were other options to having a job.

After some research, Ovens realized that “this entrepreneurship way of life” was what he needed.


Sam Ovens’ business activity – from failure to SnapInspect

Having quit his job, Ovens next apparently launched a business called PromoteYourself, a job seeker network targeted at New Zealand. He spent $15,000 on this business but had no success.

About a year later, Ovens started ToTheDesk – a service that delivered meals from local restaurants to office workers. This business failed as well.

Ovens’ third business – SnapInspect – was his first success as an entrepreneur. Ovens states that the key to SnapInspect’s success was very narrow targeting:

By the time I was ready to launch SnapInspect, I had made some very important strategic changes in how I launched this 3rd business.

With my first business, my target customer was anyone in New Zealand. It was way too broad. With my second business, my target audience was anyone working in an office… still too broad.

With SnapInspect, I got specific. My app was for property management businesses… only.

Additionally, Ovens researched what the market needed before launching SnapInspect – something he hadn’t done previously. Before commencing development, Ovens also pre-sold $5,000 worth of licenses for SnapInspect.


Establishment of

Ovens was making “some great revenue” with SnapInspect, but he needed funding to keep the software alive. Ovens would create and sell websites to finance SpanInspect. Ultimately, he would expand this side business into a digital marketing consultancy after realizing how big the demand for it was.

By the time SnapInspect had achieved profitability, my digital marketing consultancy was actually making significantly more revenue and with drastically lower overhead.

Seeing that customer acquisition was a challenge for most entrepreneurs, Ovens came to the following realization.

I realized that the key to success for virtually every business on the planet is to identify the niche you are targeting, figure out their pains and desires, and help them solve their problems and achieve their goals.

This was my second big epiphany, and I knew instinctively that it was my ticket to that private island.

Ovens would soon sell SnapInspect and invest in scaling his digital marketing consultancy.

Most businesses were hiring Ovens to run their marketing, but some of them were willing to pay large sums in exchange for advice.

As my consultancy reached multiple six figures, I also began having people approach me to teach them how to build their own profitable consultancies. At first I would coach 1-on-1, but as demand increased, I expanded to coaching groups of 5 and then 10 at a time.

Wishing to expand past groups of 10, Ovens created several training products. They were successful but didn’t meet the value levels envisioned by Ovens.

Fueled by his desire for the ideal, Ovens eventually came up with his Consulting Accelerator course. The success of this course was immense:

Within 3 years, this single course created 25 millionaires, nearly 500 six-figure earners, and allowed over 3,000 students to quit their jobs and work for themselves full-time.

Consulting Accelerator also earned $20 million in revenue for Ovens within this time frame.

After this success, Ovens decided to move to New York City and launch with the new Consulting Accelerator 2.0.
