Adam Dudley is a serial entrepreneur who has overcome unbelievable odds to get where he is today. Also known as “Hank,” Adam was born on October 30th, 1990 in Charlottesville, VA. He is the youngest of three boys with two younger sisters, and they were raised without a father.
As a young man, Adam sought attention from other male influences and a genuine sense of belonging. Without a father figure in his life, he found this in the streets near his home. This decision got him running around with the wrong crowd and this quickly led to trouble. He was gaining the independence that he wanted but in all of the wrong ways. One afternoon when he was 14 years old, Adam was headed home from school when another teenager stabbed him several times in the back. As he bled profusely, he staggered home where he was immediately rushed to the hospital.
Doctors revealed to Adam that the knife missed his heart by mere inches. As Adam recovered in the hospital for two days, he reflected upon his life and knew that it was time for a change. Adam knew that if he desired a better outcome, he needed to start doing things very differently in his life. Thoughts of entrepreneurship swirled in his mind for the freedom, earning potential, and limitless opportunities that it offered. The streets kept calling to Adam and he struggled to break away from their grasp over the next few years. Ultimately Adam dropped out of high school.
