"Startups are a way of life for me and always will be."
I'm a builder.
I think I've told nearly everyone I've worked with that I would rather plan and build a Burj Khalifa than maintain it.
Building vision from the ground up through people, business, product, market, and growth through both success and failure is the journey that not only keeps me humble but has given me an "MBA" of learning I would likely never get.
Going from idea to exit takes courage, resolve, patience, persistence, timing, resourcefulness, and keen organization, and this is what brings me the greatest satisfaction.
I've advised dozens of founders and continue to advise, mentor, and guide dozens more. I currently run an online school teaching first-time (and even seasoned) entrepreneurs how to start a start-up effectively, and this is where I share a lot of my experience and advice in coaching early-stage entrepreneurs for success.
Between my own startups and others I've partnered with, I've celebrated success and been humbled through losses, serving no less than further fueling my endless passion for innovation and creativity.
Here are a few of my current projects with some truly incredible people. Others not listed here are either in stealth mode or too early to make the list that eventually will all in due time.
