Speaker Jim Tselikis was born and raised in Maine. After graduating college in 2008, where he played division 1 Hockey, Jim moved to Boston, MA where he indulged in the best of foods. Jim worked as a medical device representative, in which he got a taste for autonomy and developed the desire and drive to run and operate his own business.

In 2011, Jim and his cousin Sabin hatched the idea of Cousins Maine Lobster, in which they would bring their native Maine lobster fresh from Maine, and make it accessible in Los Angeles, CA, via a food truck. This idea, in 2011, was meant to be a passion project when it launched in 2012. However, with insane lines and unexpected demand, Jim and his cousin Sabin created something that had serious legs. He quit his job in 2012, moved across the country, leaving everything he knew, his family, friends, and secure paycheck, to operate one food truck. Today, Cousins Maine Lobster has 31 trucks, 10 restaurants and 3 units in Taiwan, and has done over 50 million dollars in sales.

Jim also co-authored the book Cousins Maine Lobster: How One Food Truck Became a Multimillion Dollar Business, with his cousin Sabin Lomac.

You don't become rich overnight

The common misconception of success is that it is accomplished overnight. What is not shown is the struggle, sleepless nights, close encounters with losing it all, and not to forget, the sweat and tears in the process.

  • Its not the family name, legacy or size of your bank account that helps you attain success.  It is you.
  • You create the difference and results you want to accomplish.
  • What makes your role models successful? How can you accomplish the same?
