I’m known by many as an inspiring entrepreneur. Creativity, ideas, imagination, self-discovery and a never-ending motivation are the few among many principles that kept me going throughout the years. At a very early age, I realized the true potential offered by the internet and decided to capitalize on the online world of opportunities and possibilities.
After tapping into the virtual world, it opened my mind and this allowed me to identify and create new opportunities for myself. I have worked many jobs over the years doing whatever I had to do in order to finance my own ventures and to make a living while assembling, managing, and delegating tasks to remote operational teams in multiple continents.
Throughout the years i’ve recruited a large team of talented designers, developers, engineers, marketers and entrepreneurs covering all tech stacks on the market. My team stretches from here in the U.S to overseas using technology to account for the physical distance.
Now, I never attended a fancy college, university or anything like that, but that hasn’t stopped me from starting my own company. Nobody can really teach you anything, they can only inspire you to teach yourself. So, if you want to learn something you’ll have to take matters into your own hands. My greatest secret is that I learned a lot from my experiences and my mistakes and I never really limited myself.
Starting out selling household products and gifts out of my branded catalogs to my co-workers at the age of 19 at my first job, to selling apparel on my e-commerce website is what gained me first hand sales experience. But my journey of diversification didn’t stop there. When I finally discovered what I wanted out of life that helped me seek out the right people I needed to connect with.
My Personality Type
My personality type is INTJ (Introverted, intuitive, Thinking, Judging). You can best describe me as the quiet Inventor. We’re imaginative, decisive and curious. Often recognized as bookworms, The Quiet Inventor is private in their studies and is fueled by mastery of their craft. But once we’ve built something we’re proud of, we can’t wait to share it with others. We prefer to start out small and slowly prove our success before we expand. As an introvert I absolutely need a private, quiet space to retreat to when the world is too loud. Ideally, it’s a room that I can have full control of, and once i’m there, that’s when the magic happens.
My Leadership Style
My leadership style is more democratic and participative. I believe in the art of delegation, finding the right people and giving them the freedom and push to flourish on their own.
How Do Others See Me?
Typically reserved and serious, and spend a lot of time thinking. I thoroughly examine information I receive, and if asked a question, I’ll typically consider it at length before presenting a careful, complex answer. I think critically and clearly, and often have an idea about how to do something more efficiently.
