From selling his own birthday cake at 4 years old, to having massive success as a teenager with his first “real” business venture, it's been in his DNA.
Growing up in a single parent home; he learned many valuable lessons about hard work, and he also adopted some habits around money that he found later to be detrimental to his success.
