Let's Build Something Awesome Together

Mentor.  Investor.  Entrepreneur.  

My parents’ careers and lifestyle pushed me beyond my comfort zone. Growing up traveling and living in different countries taught me to think outside of the box. My exposure and experiences to multiple cultures, and my fluency in five languages, have helped me to understand, in unique ways, how to view and communicate with a variety of people. Over the years, I have found myself discovering exactly who I am and who I am not. As a millennial, I share a dynamic social and cultural background with a diverse insight that promotes great opportunities for success. As a result of my travel throughout the world, doors opened that have allowed me to learn how to connect with people from any age, social class, and culture.  

Growing up in a non-traditional family setting, stability was a foreign concept for myself. I learned to be comfortable in my own skin and found ways to thrive despite the socio-economic disadvantages that came from my upbringing. I have strived to be an example of resilience and to show others a pathway to success. It was not easy to grow up without a permanent place to call home; however, I learned early in life that home is what you make regardless of where you are or who you are with. Although life isn’t fair; it’s also a mindset! Everyone has a weakness, and I learned that a weak mentality is not going to be my choice. I don’t have control on everything in life but do I have control of how I approach life.

I believe I have to work and fight for what I care to accomplish. Failure is necessary to achieve success and success can only be achieve through commitment. Commitment isn’t measured by doing the things you want to do but doing the things you don’t want to do when you don’t want to do them. This is how you get freedom – sacrifice a few years for a life! No one is going to come to your house and make your dreams come true. Let’s work together to make something awesome!

WHY ME?

No commitment equals no results.

I read once that it is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate great success. You take the front line when there is danger and face the fear. People will appreciate your leadership. Fear was one the emotions that I had to learn how to welcome or confront before I became a leader. All the excuses in the world won’t change one simple fact: that fear is a sign to do whatever it is you fear – and do it quickly… I am scared most of the time. However, I refuse to feed my fear with time and allow it to get stronger. I opt instead to get things done quickly. 

During law school I worked for the Executive Office of the President in the White House. As an intern in the White House, I experienced tremendous professional and personal growth. I had the opportunity to listen to constituents’ opinions regarding domestic and foreign policies and reported to the Office of the President. Analyzing and responding to the stories of the American people and providing the President with a wide range of issues representing public opinions definitely was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. After my time in the White House, I was offered an opportunity to work with an assignment post overseas for the federal Government. When the time for decision arrives, the time for preparation is past. The time came where I had to put in practice everything I ever learned. I was station in a foreign country facing political and economical challenges. My colleagues and I were there to help them face their fear. It’s been said that FEAR stands for False Events Appearing Real, which aptly implies that most of what you’re afraid of doesn’t ever come to pass. Fear, for the most part, is provoked by emotions, not rational thinking. And in my humble estimation, emotions are wildly overrated – and the scapegoat many people use for their failure to act. 

I learned through several experiences that a leader is someone who demonstrates what’s possible. We got to cross the line of fear so that we can look back and demonstrate to others how’s is possible. We accomplish that by being specific, measurable, committed, realistic, and time activated. Disciplined, consistent, and persistent actions are more of a determining factor in the creation of success than any other combination of things. That’s why we are going to work together and achieve great success, its a blend of your experiences and my expertise.

Go the extra mile, there’s no one on it.

Treating success as an option is one of the major reasons why more people don’t create it for themselves—and why most people don’t even get close to living up to their full potential. Success is not something that happens to you; it’s something that happens because of you and because of the actions you take. My perspective is rooted in the belief that  having a personal brand reflective of your life experiences is far more valuable  than a sheet of paper that says where you went to college, what credentials you have or a list of jobs that you have previously held. I truly believe that a traditional resume is actually a very poor representation of who you are and the value you can bring. We all have a story to tell and the experiences we have in life and what we do with it reflects far more in your life. See, college didn’t taught me how to be successful, negotiate, mentor, invest, or being a entrepreneur. 

Since the day I started my own company and have helped others start theirs; I love investing my time doing productive and challenging projects. We live in a world full of opportunities to connect with people and the environment around us. I believe the experiences you get from meeting new people and helping them are the best “things” you can ever buy. Never reduce a target. Instead, increase actions. When you start rethinking your targets, making up excuses, and letting yourself off the hook, you are giving up on your dreams. Being an entrepreneur and investor allows me to live my dream – to have control of my own time. I use my investment portfolio in real estate and commodities to generate channels of passive income. This allows me to focus on what I love to do! 

In order to get to the next level of whatever you’re doing, you must think and act in a wildly different way than you previously have been. You cannot get to the next phase of a project without a grander mind-set, more acceleration, and extra horsepower. My goal is to always be a person focused on problem-solving rather than a personalized battle. Let’s make something awesome together!
