Tell us about yourself
From birth, I only knew two things, entrepreneurship, and real estate. My grandparents owned a 13-unit and a 50-unit apartment building. Everyone I knew in my family was self-employed. I began working at the age of 7. Even at a young age, I was taught how to do everything from lay tile and put up drywall to pouring concrete. My dad managed the apartment buildings and also owned rental property as well as flipped homes. Half of my drive came from my mom, who, at the time, worked at one of the most expensive jewelry stores. She would bring me to work, and I would meet astronauts and businessmen.
This gave me the desire to want nice things and the realization that there's no reason I couldn't achieve the same feats. My love for success and human creativity is what motivates me. It is not the fact that the car costs a million dollars that makes people want it. It's the ultra-high level of creativity and craftsmanship that went into it. Like when buying a house, sometimes you can't put into words why the expensive one looks and feels better. But an expert will tell you that the structure itself costs more to build in a more open and artistic way, and the materials used are better.
