What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
I was inspired to pursue entrepreneurship after my deployment in Afghanistan. I realized that my potential was being wasted in my current position, and even though I’d been offered a much more prestigious job, I wasn’t excited about it. I wasn’t excited about anything in my career path. I wanted more control over my time and income than I had in the military. So I turned to entrepreneurship.
What was the biggest rejection you faced and how did you overcome it?
I’ve had some of my audiences turned against me by malicious competitors, people who smear others for profit. While it’s frustrating, I remind myself that quality will endure. All I can do is focus on serving my audience and delivering as much value as I can.
What’s your definition of success?
Success is when both you and the people you serve really enjoy what you do.
