Q. 3 – What inspired you to (start a new business venture) or (to make significant changes in an existing business)? How did the idea for your business come about?

Ans: I was inspired by a situation at my job at the time that made me realize I was just this line item on a piece of paper. I felt like I was a great asset and they didn’t really care about me or my future. I then realized if I wanted to be great I would have to finally believe in myself fully. It was the moment that made me take the leap and looking back a year later I wrote my boss an email thanking them for creating the environment that made me finally take the biggest risk in my life. The idea really came about as a side investment for my consulting business. I was just looking to passively invest in real estate while I built my business. I met my best friend at a real estate investing group and I did one deal and shut down the new business I had formed and went all in on the real estate investment business. I never looked back and never worked a day in my life after that. I say I never work a day in my life all the time because I truly love what I do and wake up every day with a passion to go improve the business and my team everyday.
