I was born and raised in Brighton, Michigan, prior to moving out to Las Vegas where I worked as a project engineer developing City Center, Las Vegas. Life was good until the bubble burst and I found myself unemployed with credit card debt, a brand new car (with payments) and a brand new mortgage. After a brief period of self pity I started searching for gainful employment. Unfortunately, Las Vegas was at the epicenter of a crumbling real estate market, evaporating new construction projects and double digit unemployment…not prime for a college educated guy with a strong construction background.
At the bottom, looking up, I began feeling around for a new professional direction. Familiarizing myself with progressive minded entrepreneurs like Gary Vaynerchuck and Tim Ferriss, allowed me to change my outlook and give me some needed optimism and nerve to begin developing my own entrepreneurial skill set.
In 2010 I built a web design/SEO company that helps small businesses with their online marketing. I just recently started a new company, Social Sinergy. Social Sinergy is a Las Vegas based Digital Marketing Agency that is focused on developing, implementing and optimizing your online reputation. I have also trained 1,000+ like minded entrepreneurs in growing their online businesses.
And now I am a published author.
I would have never dreamed of all this 2 years ago.
If I can do it, anyone can.
