When most young children are asked what they want to be when they grow up, they do not hesitate to answer with what their hearts truly yearn for. It could be to fly into space as an astronaut; fly airplanes as a pilot; fight fires as a firefighter; or save people as a paramedic or doctor. I have always answered this very question the same way since I was 12 years old. I wanted to be an entrepreneur. I started my first business at that very age, and with those experiences came the yearning to continue on that same path, but in a higher magnitude. It was love at first sight.

I initially started on the entrepreneurial journey for the freedom that it provided, but I learned that it was also about the need to make a change that is bigger than any one person. One of the main longer-term goals that I have continually charged towards to is to provide jobs to at least 75 individuals in a single business. In terms of world-changing goals, one specific one that I tend to have in mind a lot is to be able to offer a hardware related, technological product in either the medical industry for COPD affected patients (which my grandfather is currently struggling to survive from), or in the electronics industry for consumers.

I am lucky to have such a strong vision and motivation level, and with those powering me, there is nothing that I cannot accomplish.
