I empower people to start businesses regardless of their situation. I believe that personal development is the key to becoming the person you want to be. You can learn from books, programs, seminars, or through networking. Your only limit is your belief in yourself.
I've been in business for over 7 years. I have 4 companies (Glad Health & Fitness, Glad Health Transport, The Simeon Group Publishing, and Coach Glad) in four different industries. I didn't have any experience in either but learned through personal development. Now, I encourage others to be unstoppable when pursuing their goals.
