The Business World is Not for the Timid.
I have great empathy for entrepreneurs and business managers. The business world is not for the timid. I have been on an incredible journey the past 25 years. I started my professional career as a part-time, child-care worker. I was as far-removed from Wall Street as you could imagine. When I decided to start my first business, I was a law student living in my parents’ basement. I had never taken a finance or accounting course. To make things more interesting, I decided to start my business in communist country and I didn’t speak their language. It was the perfect foundation for success; I had no business experience, no money, no formal business education, no experience in the industry, and no cultural understanding of my marketplace.But like a true entrepreneur, I went ahead and did it anyway.
Success is Always Within Our Reach.
Within a few years, I would start and own five different companies. As the years passed, I had a greater desire to learn as many technical and managerial skills as I could. I gravitated to consulting because it gave me a platform to do the three things I enjoyed most; help people, explore the world and make money.
