I was born into a family that had its fair share of struggles. Growing up I watched my parents make great sacrifices to make ends meet. I took note of this persistence, as it set for me an example of what it means to work hard to achieve your goals. Alongside this motivation was always a will to help others regardless of the career path I chose. I initially pursued the medical field in lieu of serving others. In this quest I found myself working a stable position in the pharmaceutical industry, however, in it I lived a life of repetition. With that said, I learned to push myself and challenge my capabilities no matter what position I held, as I quickly learned that there is reward in making your best effort. After a few years working in pharmacy I found myself in the same position- wanting to move forward or to add something even more fulfilling to my career, but I could not. I reached a ceiling that I could not break. The trigger for change went off when I watched a coworker get chosen for a special project merely on the basis of whom he knew instead of his merit. This is when I knew I needed a change.
The seed that started this venture was my cousin starting a business. He, like myself, had started a medical career and made the switch into a new industry. He achieved a lot by running his own business and seemed to be doing everything that I wanted in my life - growth, progression, and traveling. When we sat down and spoke about it, I decided to create my business plan and see where I can take it.
