HIGHLIGHTS


“Both of my businesses were built with partners. Because I knew that I could run faster with incredible people than I could alone. And I've never met a billionaire that did it completely on his own."




"So, I'm very much a strategist, and I can identify, you know, issues and potential within businesses. And so really, the next step for me is partnering with businesses that are that are at a plateau that have been around for a while haven't experienced a lot of growth, maybe they're just been steady and coming in and given them a new fresh eyes, how to market and sell and scale and attract good talent."




"I'd rather have 50% of something growing than 100% of something dying."
