At a very young age like any kid who wanted everything in the world, I learned the value and power of money. I remember having garage sales on my block selling off my unwanted toys, trading cards and miscellaneous other objects from my house because I was infatuated with making money. As I grew into my teenage years I became even more obsessed and all I did was think about the next big thing. You see everyday people strike gold with a simple yet ingenious idea. In 1999, at the age of 17, I convinced my parents to help me open a trending computer network gaming center. We were the first ones in Brooklyn, NY to open one. It did quite well in the beginning but with the way technology was advancing, the investment in the computers, monitors, hardware and software soon became outdated and my location was also met with several competitors. What was a brilliant idea soon became a challenging competition where I decided to cut my losses and bow out. Till this day I regret many things I did not do, some were the simplest of things such as marketing and promotions. However I did come out without probably one of the most valuable lessons I will ever learn, to accept a great defeat, and move on to the next task with more awareness and concentration.
I went back to school and found work in sales for major companies such as Hyundai Motors, Panda Express, Armani Exchange and Red Bull Distribution. It was these young and fast growing companies that inspired me to learn exactly how they and many other new age companies became so successful, and all the dots started to connect. I donít pride myself to be a great writer who can allure you with my words, but I do pride myself to be as imaginative and creative as a child whose learning process is never ending. It is only when your mind becomes frozen from daily repetitive activity in which you will block your ability to continuously learn and grow. If I could stress one thing it would be to never stop learning, thinking and imagining because these things are worth more than any amount of money.
Currently I am traveling the world, promoting my E-Book
