What’s your backstory?
I’ve always been known as a basketball player, however I want to be known as a businessman, entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist. I’ve always been interested in business and entrepreneurship. You can say I was that kid who was selling electronics and candy bars in high school. When I got to college I had realized business is what I wanted to pursue but I didn’t want to wait until I graduated to started making money or start a business. I wanted to start in college so that way I wasn’t looking for a job frantically like a lot of people do whenever they graduate. I wanted to prove that you don’t have to drop out to start a business and you don’t have to wait to start a business either.
I know this is not an easy job. What drives you?
When I ask myself what drives me and why seven times, I find that having control of my life and having financial freedom is at the core.

Is there someone who made a big difference in your life who helped you get to where you are today? What lesson did you learn from them?
I’d say my mom. I was lucky enough to have a mom who believes in me and gave me confidence that I can do anything I want to do. I learned from her that I can do anything I set my mind to and the only limitations in life are the limitations you set on yourself.
