More about me:
I am also the creator of top entrepreneur mobile apps with 2,000,000+ downloads, host of a popular business and marketing channel on YouTube with 3,000,000+ views, successful affiliate marketer, a serial entrepreneur in many other fields.
I have a BS in Computer Science from SJSU, and after working as a software engineer, I wanted to take a bigger role in the businesses I worked in, and that is how I got into business and marketing. Today, I am a world-class marketer and successful entrepreneur.
What I am interested in now when it comes to business:
I am a productivity and emotional intelligence geek. I geek out on things like motivation, building healthy habits, and creativity.
Some of my own favorite topics that I teach:
I have seen any of my students succeed in Amazon eCommerce. Selling on Amazon can be very lucrative and I love seeing my students do well.
I also teach many SEO topics that I myself use all the time. They include link-building, keyword research, and using other sites like YouTube, Amazon, and even freelancing sites like Fiverr as search engines to get discovered when people are searching.
My interests outside business and entrepreneurship:
I like playing soccer, chess, dabbling in philosophy, creating music, and writing lyrics. Plus, I am always daydreaming about finally getting a dog (a rescue from a shelter, of course).
I bring nearly 10 years of legal experience to the table and can help you understand the difference between an LLC and a Corporation. I have drafted and reviewed the documents of formation, such as LLC Agreements, Shareholder Agreements, etc. I have also counseled individual clients in fee and salary negotiations as well as employment agreements.
Aside from the above, I have represented clients in business disputes, employment law matters and other litigation matters. These representations have included breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty matters; and matters involving violation of federal and state employment laws. Most importantly, I have been able to achieve results for clients winning a number of cases on summary judgment, motions to dismiss and post-hearing briefs after administrative hearings. This experience has taught me that the most economical way to settle disputes is to stay out of court. Yet, sadly, when anyone can sue you for anything, you have to be prepared.
Prior to entering the practice law, I worked for MCI as well as a start-up company (FiberNet Telecom Group formerly FTGX on NASDAQ) managing cost, financial and pricing data for large-scale satellite and terrestrial network build-outs. While with MCI, my responsibilities included interfacing with top management, with customers as well as within MCI particularly with the drafting of the annual revenue plan and evaluation of prior year plan to actual revenue analysis. I also consistently interacted with customers to assess their on-going technological needs drafting pricing proposals for modifications to main contracts.
These two facets of my career offer to clients the unique perspective of understanding both the legal and business implications of any legal conundrum.
