When Carlos Martins was 12, his family joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Because he showed interest in learning new languages, Carlos had the opportunity to learn English with Mormon missionaries. After much sacrifice, he realized his dream at was to visit the United States. At 17 years old, he traveled with just $100 in his pocket to follow his dream. At age 19, he served a religious mission in Portugal.
At 21, Carlos married Vania Pimentel. By the time he was 26, he was accepted to Brigham Young University, located in Utah in the United States. There, he studied Computer Science and Statistics. It was at the University that he was presented a teaching methodology that allowed young people to express themselves freely in a second language in just 8 weeks.
Sometime later to supplement the family monthly salary, he began to give English lessons. He would teach his students in his own home. That was the beginning of the entrepreneurial vision that would lead him to form the network of language schools, Wizard. His devotion to his school ran so deep, he even legally changed his middle name to “Wizard.”
Currently, Carlos Wizard Martins has formed the Multi Group through a series of acquisitions. He is becoming one of the greatest entrepreneurs of languages and vocational education sector in the world . He is also the author of the bestselling book "Awaken the Millionaire in You." Carlos and his wife Vanya are parents of 6 children.
