I was going to be a professional basketball or baseball player. Once reality hit, I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. I started inventing businesses when I was pretty young. My first job was running my own landscaping business during summers in Alaska where I grew up. In college, I'd buy blocks of seats on airplanes and resell them to my fellow students.
What did you learn from your landscaping business?
I did that for three years and learned that marketing was key. I paid people to go out and spread business fliers around. I'd blanket the area.
