I got my first job at a massive insurance company, sorting paperwork and filing (does anyone still use file folders?) when I was 17. After that I mixed paint like a pro in a home improvement store.  I worked in the pool hall on campus while I attended college and could have probably beat you in a game of 8 ball.  I became the manager of the display department of a major retail store, I was an advertising designer for a local newspaper, and a college professor. Finally, in May of 2007 I took up the role that I was meant to play, entrepreneur.

Each of these periods in my life taught me a little bit about myself and my strengths.  I’m really good at thinking outside of the box and coming up with creative solutions to problems.  I’m patient and I don’t lose my cool when faced with a challenge.  I’m an information sponge and love to pass on my knowledge and know-how to others.

My definition of success is freedom.  Freedom to pursue a career that you love, freedom to build your life as you imagine it, and freedom from uncertainty.
