I was taught that to be successful one must have a university education. So, I enrolled at Iowa State University in aerospace engineering as my father suggested. I ended up graduating in Sociology and found myself living out of my car and became a pizza cook for a national restaurant chain. Within three years I had become the youngest general manager for one of the franchises.
At that time another restaurant manager introduced me to a successful entrepreneur who offered to take me under his wing and mentor me as he developed assets. I was introduced to, and partnered with, other entrepreneurs and developed a system of entrepreneurship development and business ownership. We created an Entrepreneurial Development Program that now selects candidates to participate as I, and other entrepreneurs, mentor, at no charge, to those who are selected. Our mentorship program provides me the opportunity to pay forward the mentorship I have received most of my adult life. I love what I do and I love and appreciate those that I mentor. Our teams have continued to create assets with significant cash flow around the globe.
