I dropped out of high school to get my GED.
I dropped out of college to start working for successful entrepreneurs and get a real business education.
That education was tough, much tougher than going to school would have been, but I went all in. I worked crazy hours. I soaked up everything I could from three very different but very successful mentors. I remembered the pain of their mistakes and vowed not to make them myself.
They became my coaches, mentors and cheerleaders. They became my friends. Eventually I partnered with three amazing entrepreneurs and we got to work.
Then, I made my own mistakes, a lot of them, but I learned from those mistakes and kept going. I found other people just like me through masterminds and business trainings.
