Tell us about yourself and what you do
Well I’m an 18 year old entrepreneur and I’ve started three business ventures since graduating high school in June, all doing extremely well. One being the fashion brand I founded called Gentleman’s Dresser, you can find that at gentlemansdresser.com, I have a personal training business, and I released my first book, “Quit Overcomplicating Fitness: Guide to Go From Geek to Gladiator.”
Who has inspired you in your life and why?
My biggest inspiration to get started was rejection. I would go to dances and on dates with these girls and they’d just blow me off. Just always turned down it felt like. I mean it seems like that’s what always happens in today’s culture. Plus people in school that would doubt me in general. So I decided to start lifting. Once I got rolling all these negative people lost their ammo. They still try but always fail. That’s what happens when you decide to get started. Starting is the most important part.
What is your greatest achievement so far?
My greatest achievement has been inspiring other people. When I have people ask for advice or look up to me like some do, it really warms my heart. That value goes a long way.
