how do you feel to be a part of the millennial generation?

 

“millennials are a great asset for America's financial growth. the reason small business owners and entrepreneurs in this generation are motivated to do something to change their life. instead of only having a small boutique in a small town--this generation has access to the internet and an ability to brand on social media. the connections made, just on social media alone, have changed the outlook of many young entrepreneurs.”

what are your other daily obstacles?

 

“i deal with constant back pain. i have for 15 years. every morning is a chore to bend over, so i've decided to start yoga and meditation in the mornings. being in a profession where your body and mind is your tool for generating profit, i must take care of that tool and keep it sharp. it’s a struggle to tell myself to do it everyday but i try my best to make it a morning routine, it is helping slowly.”

 

 

is there a passion you are pursuing, or long-term goal to achieve (financial or otherwise)?

 

“my passion is to change lives and give others the power to fight back in any situation with BJJ. I definitely

have a long term goal of one day owning 3 locations after I reach 300 members in one location.”

God had a plan for me very young.
