First of all, I want to thank every single one of you for having arrived at my author's page. It's no coincidence that you are here.
It's yet another step to becoming a thriving and successful entrepreneur.
When I began my own entrepreneur's journey more than 15 years ago, I was naïve. On my very first venture into this world, I got lucky. I organized the right team and targeted a hot new technology.
