I am a down to the bone, entrepreneur. I’m from a small town in update New York with more cows then people. It was a very industrious town led by IBM. In high school, my family moved down to NC where I later went on to graduate with a degree in the sciences. I am a firm believer in education. Now, does this mean formal education? No, not necessarily. However, it is important to feed the brain with knowledge. Whether you acquire that knowledge from college, an online forum, a mentor or a book, it is still a form of education.
Currently I own a eBay business, Internet Marketing business as well as going to school full time pursing my M.B.A. Pursuing the graduate degree is something I have always wanted to do, and have a means to make that happen has been a blessing in my life. Frankly, without eBay and the Internet Marketing business, I do not know if I could have made this all possible.
Not only that, but I have also been able to volunteer more then 700hours in 2011 at one of the worlds best hospitals. This is something that meant a lot to me and will help facilitate the progression of my professional career in health care management.
I have released a number of products which have all been fairly well received over the past several years, from ebay courses to Internet Marketing courses. I have helped all over the world achieve things they never once though possible. However now, I am planning on taking my business to the next level which includes a new mind set and a new fresh set of goals.
For fun, I love to drive fast cars, ride mountain bikes and read books. My Wife and I absolutely love to take exotic vacations to places like Mexico, Jamaica and The Bahamas. Recently, we spent a week at an all inclusive luxury resort in Negril, Jamaica. Again, all this is funded through my business activities.
One thing that sets me apart from a lot of Internet Marketing professionals is that my goal is not to make money and just sit around on an exotic island for months at a time. I love to keep busy and learn new things, I went to college because I have a passion for science and business. I am pursuing a career in Health Care Management and I have a back ground in neurological research. I do not look at a “JOB” as something I MUST do to get the bills paid. My business provides more then enough money to live off. A job to me, is an activity that stimulates my mind – outside of my online ventures. I really love doing what I do, I just happen to get paid to do it. The coolest thing is knowing that I have the ability to be very picky of the jobs I do, and so far they have all been REALLY COOL! My most recent job was in 2009 – 2010. It was a 9 month project where I got to work side by side some of the top researchers in the country working on a drug to help fight against Alzheimers. Once I graduate in May 2012 with my M.B.A in Health Care, I will choose to work at a organization that has similar goals and beliefs as I do.
So I want to leave you with a little nugget. Your motivations should be larger than the challenges you will face to achieve your goals. If you let the challenges stop you, that means you were lacking in motivation.
