What drives you to keep working hard each day?

I’m really motivated to help even more people launch their products. My goal is to inspire a million people. So many talented people just need an extra push to bring their dreams to life. I hope I can keep encouraging more people to make their next move.

What are some sacrifices you’ve made to get to where you are?

I missed out on a lot after college. My friends all had traditional corporate jobs, so they would meet up on Friday nights and go for drinks. They also went on lots of holidays together that I had to skip. My decision to strike out on my own and not follow the beaten track meant I couldn’t do what everyone else was doing. While it was tough to watch my friends have fun without me, the work I put in has gotten me to where I am today and I’m proud of that.

If you could start over, what would you do differently?

I would take on a traditional job immediately after graduating. I think this would’ve given me the structure I needed to grow early on and that would have really supported my early endeavors. It also would’ve allowed me to save some money to finance my own work later on.
