You wouldn’t expect a successful entrepreneur to get their start in a gym. But you haven’t met Lukas Lindler, who turned to odd jobs and his penchant for physical fitness while as a teen struggling in school. Unbeknownst to him at the time, those early days would help launch his career into the stratosphere as the CEO of his eponymous holding company, Lukas Lindler Holding — and he’s happy to share his entrepreneurial journey to financial independence.
Born and raised in Augsburg, Germany, Lindler now helms the digital services and online marketing space Digitale Infoproducts. His family was working class and Lindler, falling behind academically and in search of direction, stumbled upon a passion for fitness. On the advice of friends and his mother, he enrolled in a training course at a local gym. His then-boss recognized his potential in sales and marketing and tasked him with selling fitness contracts, igniting his passion for sales. This experience fostered a desire to attain financial independence and open his own gym. His mentor provided him with crucial insights into entrepreneurship. But that was only the start.
Overcoming Hurdles on the Path to Success
The entrepreneurial journey can resemble a roller-coaster ride filled with long climbs up and heart-stopping drops down. Lukas Lindler, now regarded as a successful expert in digital sales, is no stranger to these challenges. His path was fraught with difficulties and obstacles, yet he always viewed these as necessary steps toward success. Rather than getting disheartened, he cultivated an unwavering resilience and persistence that ultimately guided him to his accomplishments.
Lindler embraced a powerful insight that shaped his outlook: “With the stones you throw in my path, I will build my dream house.” This philosophy helped him navigate through tough times.
His climb up the entrepreneurial ladder wasn’t set in stone. Lindler didn’t hail from a family of entrepreneurs. Despite this background, he mustered the courage and determination to carve out his own path. He found mentors who could teach him about entrepreneurship and understood the value of learning from his experiences and imparting these lessons to others.
He firmly believes that resiliency and consistency are crucial factors for business success. “Those who truly persist eventually achieve their goals. Even if it takes a few months or years, they ultimately reach their destination,” he emphasized. His message is clear: Success is a process, not an immediate goal. Failures and obstacles are parts of this process and they are what shape and strengthen us.
In his current role as a mentor and coach, he assists others in finding their path in digital sales. He shares his experiences and knowledge to help others reach their goals. His story serves as a potent example of how one can triumph over all challenges if they dare to confront obstacles, learn from their mistakes, and never give up.
Lukas Lindler’s Pivotal Moment
Lukas Lindler’s career took an upturn in 2020. His tireless efforts started paying off. Looking back on the demanding years he spent as a fitness trainer, Lindler shared, “In 2020, I made a five-figure monthly income for the first time. It was a defining moment as I realized I was earning more by working less.” The change was significant — no more weekend or shift work, yet his income multiplied.
This change prompted Lindler to rethink his relationship with money. He realized that he had internalized his parents’ work ethic — the belief that hard work and a solid education were the keys to financial stability. The experience of earning a five-figure monthly income made him question this mindset and reassess his financial possibilities.
This adjustment in his thinking opened up new avenues for Lindler. He thought, “There really aren’t any limits, so if I can make a five-figure income now, maybe it’s possible to make a six-figure monthly income.” This aha moment kindled a desire to achieve more and break his limitations.
The year 2021 brought additional changes. Lukas Lindler decided to use his acquired knowledge to help others. He created a product to teach people how to make money with social media. He describes that year as one in which he “made quite a bit of money.”
These experiences profoundly influenced Lindler. His earlier career set limitations in terms of time and earnings. But 2020 changed everything. “Once I started earning online and we automated a lot, the limits were suddenly gone,” he shared. “I was making a five-figure income, and then I knew there really aren’t any limits. It’s all in my mind.”
From then on, Lindler focused solely on the online business, leaving his offline activities behind. He saw potential in the online space. The rest, as they say, is history.
From Limitations to Liberty: Lukas Lindler’s Path to Financial Independence
The founding of Lukas Lindler Holding GmbH in 2021 was another significant step in Lindler’s professional journey. The customer base expanded exponentially, and sales skyrocketed. However, despite the remarkable growth and success, Lindler felt he was hitting another limit.
He noticed that although he had embraced the concept of limitlessness in 2020, he felt constrained again in 2021 due to the joint venture. Lindler recalls, “In 2021, I realized: ‘Hey, I’m hitting a limit again, but why?'” This led him to refocus on his own company and liberate himself from the perceived boundaries. The outcome was striking: Lindler made his highest earnings ever in 2021.
“That year, I made my first million,” he recalled. “For every million, there is a gold record, there are more of them, and from that point on, the millions just kept coming.” Lindler believed this was a clear indicator of what’s achievable when you don’t set boundaries for yourself.
From a one-man show to a team of over 35 employees in 2022, Lukas Lindler Holding GmbH experienced an astonishing growth spurt. Even with this impressive progress, Lindler constantly asks himself: “Where’s the next limit? Is there even one?”
His primary goal now is to find and overcome that potential possible next hurdle. At the same time, he wants to give others the chance to benefit from his knowledge and experience. His vision is to show people how to transcend their boundaries and present them with an alternative path, one that lies beyond the traditional employment model and is enabled by social media. He invites others to embark on this exciting journey and embrace the opportunities that a limit-free mindset can open up.
