Five Badass Q&As
Q1: What inspired you to start your first business in high school?
A1: My uncle and aunt lived in São Paulo, and I saw opportunities there. I saved up for a round-trip flight and started an import business, bringing in minerals and pewter from Brazil. It taught me the importance of education and tackling complex challenges.
Q2: How do you manage multiple companies simultaneously?
A2: I’m currently focusing on two companies full-time. I’ve learned to delegate and rely on a skilled team. Knowing your limits and hiring more intelligent people to manage different aspects is essential.
Q3: What is GlobeStar Therapeutics’ approach to treating MS?
A3: We’ve developed a patented method involving a pill taken twice daily for 45 days, combining three preapproved FDA drugs with our secret formula. The results from our trials in Italy have been incredible, and we’re now seeking FDA approval for clinical trials in the US.
Q4: How do you handle failure and setbacks in your entrepreneurial journey?
A4: Failure is part of the process. My biggest failure was with Apogee Biometrics, where the technology just didn’t work. I didn’t let it affect my self-confidence. You have to keep moving forward and learn from each experience.
Q5: What advice do you have for building strong business relationships?
A5: Be genuinely interested in people and always be there for them. Don’t hide behind emails; make an effort to connect personally. Be honest about the good, the bad, and the ugly, and consistently seek to help and support others.
