I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I’ve been an entrepreneur my whole life.

In 2006 I was working at a construction site trying to pay for college when I was run over by a large skidster. It snapped my left leg in half and pretty much crushed my dreams of walking again. Over the next 12 months I was confined to only my bed being sponge-bathed. I had 3 surgeries and was told that I would never walk again.

In 2007 I began an experimental treatment to have stem-cells injected into my leg to regrow the bone. Over the next 6 months I learned how to walk again by walking in the deep end of the pool and moving my way to the shallow end. This is something I feared that I would never do again, but I was determined to try everything possible to beat my odds.

During this time I began to learn online marketing. I had no choice but to sit in my bed all day, even worse I had no way to make money but behind my computer. I would spend 16-20 hours online a day. I learned what it takes to sell products online. Since then I have purchased, started, grown and sold several companies online with my latest company quadrupling a seven figure revenue stream in 6 months.

While my leg still bothers me some days, I view that trial as the literal stepping stone into my current career and it taught me to never give up. The lessons I learned from that day forward have helped make me who I am today.
