I'm a serial entrepreneur with the desire to help others become successful...

Early on I was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug. As a young man growing up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - my folks were into the network marketing; and my Dad moonlighted as a handyman. So I saw the value of having your own business; especially after working as a stock clerk at Kiddie City Toy Store.

I quickly realize that if I was going to work hard for someone, I'd rather work hard for myself. Upon graduating from high school, off to college I went, Lehigh University, to start my journey of self-discovery. I initially thought I wanted to be a corporate lawyer, which I definitely had the talent for; but after speaking with my law professor, I soon realized that it wasn't part of my DNA! He told me I was “Too nice to be a corporate lawyer... You'd have to become more cut-throat, and that its just not who you are." Which I couldn't deny, he was right. So, there I was with my Pre-Law degree, and my dream of becoming a corporate lawyer becoming more and more of a dream...

So, I had a talk with my best friend's Dad, and he suggested I go into sales... Now that was something I hadn't really considered. So, after doing some homework, I decided to become an insurance agent; thus starting my journey as an entrepreneur. Early on, I quickly realize it wasn't easy profession, there weren't a ton of people banging down my door to buy insurance. But, after learning my way through trial and error, I was able to build a successful business. Which led me into network marketing. I was already working for myself, and it made sense for me to create another stream of residual income...

I enjoy helping others succeed by using what I've experienced to help them "fast track" their learning curve...
