➡️ About The Guest
Zeke Pike is a serial entrepreneur and Founder of Ez Ecomm LLC and Credit Wipe. Zeke’s journey to greatness started in high school, as an All-American Quarterback. He fell into hard times throughout college, bouncing between Auburn, Louisville, and Murray State but it is through those hard times he turned his life around by founding Number8 Ministries and immersing himself in scripture.
While building Number8 Ministries, Zeke got an unexpected call from the Indianapolis Colts to give Pike a tryout for Tight End. Eager to give his dream another chance, Zeke went for it. His time was cut short when Indianapolis decided it was no longer a good fit. Lost and looking for answers, Zeke took his first step into a flourishing industry with the dream of making it to the top right away
Living in Boca Raton, FL, Zeke dabbled in selling on Amazon. Within a matter of a year, Zeke’s stores were producing 7-Figure numbers left and right. It was at that point Zeke realized he was onto something. Zeke’s decision to help investors create passive income streams was where his business, EZ Ecomm excelled to the next level. In a matter of months, Zeke quickly scaled EZ Ecomm to 7 figures just from investor enrollment fees with his total store sales totaling over 8 Figures.
EZ Ecomm intends to stand out through systems that allow every account to be taken care of in all aspects. With that in mind, it’s no telling how far Zeke & EZ Ecomm will go. A customer-first attitude is necessary to scale, and Zeke embraces that.
