Why are you passionate about your business? I am passionate about property management because it is a good starting point and foundation for me; I am good at this line of business. No matter how advanced society shall become you will always need housing and utilities.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far as an entrepreneur? One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that I need help! I have learned to ask for help.
What advice would you give to someone currently in prison who would like to do something positive with their life when they get home? If you plan to start a business, make sure to take all the business classes you can. It’s easy to do the hands-on work, but you need to know how to maintain a business.
Outside of your business, what is something that you love doing? What I like to do when I’m not running my business is drive fast cars. I own a 2018 Cadillac ATS.
What does success look like for your business? My idea of success is creating generational wealth for my kids and grandkids.
