40 Under 40: “Everything in life that is worthwhile is uphill”
What is your greatest professional accomplishment? Transitioning from my 9-5 to brokerage. Making the leap is hard. It’s true that life begins outside your comfort zone. What impact has social media / networking had on your career? Social media is an opportunity for people to get to know you, your ideas, and what you do. You can reach so many people in a short amount of time – there’s nothing like it. Networking is a great way to meet new people in-person and stay in touch with people you already know. You may not be able to have lunch with all of your favorite business partners but going to an event gives you an opportunity to catchup with them. What unique qualities and or personality do you feel makes you most successful in your profession? I like the business aspect just as much as the relationship aspect. My mother was a psychologist and my father worked in finance so I was born to like people and numbers equally.
