As a kid who grew up in the Bronx, NY, I felt trapped. I only knew the culture found on the streets and the knowledge and information found in books. The Bronx allowed me to view the world around me by observing the different cultures and demographics found in real life vs. a museum or TV shows. Since I was so intrigued by other cultures, I studied and learned how individuals worked differently. I realized how we are all human but, in essence, we are all made differently. The streets showed me how there is so much more in the world that I needed to see for myself, including what else is around me and what I had not seen and could not see on the streets of the Bronx. For this reason, I knew I wanted to always be on the move. In order for me to do this, I had to become a businessman who would be fully open to traveling to any location without any “buts” in order to make or close a deal. I began to build my empire with this clear understanding.
The decision I made to leave the Bronx allowed me to explore, communicate with and view humans as unbiased individuals. This provided me with such inspiration to do and work as hard as all the individuals on the same traveling journey as me, as well as those who are still trying to escape the streets they feel trapped in.
People ask me, why do you always want to be on the move if traveling is so stressful and tiring? My response is that I look at all those negative concepts as a fascination. As a result of traveling, I have the ability to start and end my day in different countries, bring concepts to work with my team that I have taken in from my experiences around the world, and create even more amazing results with them for clients and the industry.
