Derek’s journey as an entrepreneur did not have easy beginnings. He left college to pursue a career in online business. Although he was passionate about the businesses since he was a child, working for other companies was not his aim. He always wanted to do something incredible that no one can think about. He had an entrepreneurial spirit and was willing to work hard to achieve his goals in the business. However, he also faced failures in his first six attempts to run a startup. Anyone would probably give up and get exhausted by this many failures, but he had something else and never lost hope in his mind. Seeing the mistakes as a learning opportunity and drawing the possible lessons from his efforts, he continually focused on starting over. This determination paid off later. After a trial and error process and constant testing along the way, he found a path to focus on and successfully achieved his goals that have so far become unstoppable.
