What are you working on right now?
Currently, I am working on an audio lecture series that provides a step-by-step guide on “How To Start A Business.”
Where did the idea for ND Publishing come from?
I was daydreaming of ideas for how to infuse my financial background with creativity, so I came up with ND Publishing as a result.
What is one problem you encountered as an entrepreneur, and how did you overcome it?
Startup cost, building a brand and getting customers are some problems I encountered initially, but I overcame these issues by tapping into my network and spending the necessary funds for advertising.
How do you bring ideas to life?
Listening to myself, my friends and the people in my circle for inspiration. Also, I’m really big on daydreaming, because my subconscious has provided many of my ideas.
What’s one trend that really excites you?
I love technology and all things digital because they put power into the hands of the content provider and destroy the traditional middle man that hinders creativity, freedom and financial reward.
What was the worst job you ever had, and what did you learn from it?
I once was a dishwasher for a bakery, and I learned that I never wanted to be in a position where I can’t control my own destiny.

Nothing. This business came about from making bad decisions with other businesses, which helped to create ND Publishing Company.
