Software Engineer and Mathematician Michael Peres is making a wave online with thousands of valuable resource materials for Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) being requested from his website and LinkedIn account daily.
Peres, 29 and a travel entrepreneur, worked with Chemical Engineer and Venture Capitalist Ariana Desiree Thacker to create important resources that aspiring Master in Business Administration (MBA) students would need to pass or even ace the GMAT exams.
Peres devoted 1.5 years of personal time to devise a system that can facilitate the easy access of the resources file dubbed as the Mega-GMAT to interested individuals.
Since the Mega-GMAT folders became accessible in 2018, thousands of people are continually requesting daily. Today, there are over 120,000 individuals reached by the GMAT resources file and more are still contacting Peres through his website, www.michaelperes.com and LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/mikeyperes.
Listed below is an example of a post Peres’ created on LinkedIn requesting individuals to comment their email in order to gain access to the GMAT resource file. This post generated over 1600 personalized requests.
The Mega-GMAT resource includes links to ebooks, free GMAT tutorials and exams, application materials and Thacker’s Quick B-School Tips to Save Time and Money.
Meanwhile, recipients of the Mega-GMAT resources folder are appreciative of this simple act by Peres.
Aside from the email messages he received from individuals requesting access on the resource folders, constant messages of thanks and confirmation about how helpful the resource materials are, come to his inbox everyday.
Most email senders would note the diligent effort Peres is devoting everyday to give GMAT access to the thousands who request for his resources folder.
LinkedIn followers Nicolas Gomez, Vaanya Gauri and Merilloyd Lim are grateful to Peres’ selfless acts of sharing the resources without asking something in return.
Mabinouri Agboola and Shailendra Chaudhary, stressed that as an act of paying forward, they are obliged to share the resource materials to everyone as they are very helpful for MBA students.
Other followers such as Suraj B, Stuti Ahlawat and Ikjot Singh acknowledged that the Mega-GMAT resource file was really helping them in their GMAT preparations.
Also, Melissa Franco, Mokhamad Dwiki and Richa Asthana, emphasized Peres’ innate goodness for creating the free resources that are really valuable for aspiring MBAs like them.
Even Training and Placement Officer Dr. Ankit Khan expressed his gratitude for the “great” resource that can be used by his students to expand their “knowledge horizon.”
Peres, who also operates a science, tech and business podcast site, believes that when starting out, a company should focus on learning how to offer value, hone their skills rather than prioritizing on earnings. He is doing free work to establish trust with his clients deeming it beneficial to the company in the long run.
Peres also offers free consulting and mentoring for students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) related fields.
Aside from Mega-GMAT, Peres also created MBA resource files in collaboration with Lucas Miller, a local business author. The MBA Summaries have given access to over 54,000 individuals since 2018.
Just recently, he also teamed up with product manager and travel hacker Julien Bortz to create resource folders on the best credit cards to use when travelling, which has reached over 2,000 people at present.
Peres was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 9. He looks at this disability as strength to continually create innovative ways that would benefit him and other people live their personal and professional lives based on their own terms.
