Go to school, do good enough to get into a four year college. Get your degree, so you can go to law school or medical school and become a doctor or a lawyer. As a first generation American, this was the American dream.
After finishing college I was on a mission. I wanted to prove that the American Dream has changed. With all the knowledge available to us through the internet, we can choose to do what we love. For me that was entrepreneurship
My story of entrepreneurship really begins in middle school. If you remember the early 2000’s , every one in the hip-hop scene was wearing a jersey. For some reason it wasn’t really the idea of wearing jerseys that fascinated me. What drew my interest was how expensive they were and how kids in my neighborhood could afford it. To make a long story short my father an I found a wholesaler, and started an eBay store selling Jerseys.
After that feeling I was HOOKED.
For the past 4 years i’ve worked in small business to business software sales…
