How did you begin your speaking career?

I do not feel I have a career, I feel that I owe others to share my lessons learned, the mistakes I have made, the shortcuts and critical lessons that others took time to teach me and to pay back the world of enterprise support which was so very generous with time and effort given my complete lack of education

 

When did you realize you wanted to become an entrepreneur?

When I needed to pay the bills, have money to buy food and there were no other jobs. I then started running my own company and then in the early 90’s being an entrepreneur was almost a sinners way to make money. I like breaking the rules and admired the Branson cultural approach, then I thought I can do that and enjoy it.
